  • The woman who made Hillary Clinton cry [cue the violins]

    PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Seven years ago, the last time Hillary Clinton came to this state trying to be president, a woman asked her a question here in a coffee shop. “How do you do it?” Marianne Pernold Young said. It felt at first like a friendly throwaway. It wasn’t. It cut to the core for Clinton. Her eyes got teary. Her voice got shaky. Her answer, uncharacteristically emotional, made news, but the trigger was the question. It was the key question back then. It is the key question still now. “I wanted to know her,” Young said Monday afternoon at...

    WESTFIELD, Ind. (WISH) - Westfield police say the double homicide that happened on Friday was a home invasion that occurred during the day.

    A 76-year-old woman was killed in a shootout with attempted robbers outside her South Carolina home early on Saturday morning. “She fought. She was a fighter. She shot him,” the victim’s brother, Ronnie Lollis, told local news. Dorothy Hendrix returned home at about 1am when two armed men and one woman approached her attempting to rob her, coroner Greg Shore said. Hendrix pulled out a gun and fired at the suspects, and one of them returned fire, hitting her twice. One neighbour reported the gunshots to police. Hendrix, known as “Dot” to friends and family, managed to shoot one of...

    THE VILLAGES — Each detail of Florida Gov. Rick Scott's first budget signing was painstakingly considered. From the location ­— a conservative retirement community in Central Florida — to the mini-red "veto" Sharpie pens Scott handed out as keepsakes. From the music that would announce Scott's arrival to the stage, to, it turns out, who could be there. At the urging of Scott officials, Sumter County sheriff's deputies escorted a group of more than a dozen Democrats — mainly retirees who live in The Villages — from Thursday's event at the town square. The reason? The $69 billion state budget...

    Disappointed Texans in Congress are threatening legislative action to block NASA's planned transfer of a retired shuttle orbiter from Florida's Kennedy Space Center to a riverside museum in New York City. The 16 lawmakers, led by Reps. Ted Poe, R-Humble, and Pete Olson, R-Sugar Land, want NASA to award a retired shuttle to Houston's Johnson Space Center. The lawmakers — 15 Republicans joined by Houston Democrat Gene Green — issued their threat in a letter to NASA administrator Charles Bolden. The Texas Republicans acted in the wake of Bolden's decision on Tuesday to allocate four retired shuttle orbiters for public...

    Hannity calls British imam a sick, miserable and evil SOB—on the air. On last night’s Hannity, Sean got himself into a regular old shootout with a radical British imam who believes in Sharia Law, wants the United Kingdom to become subjected to Sharia Law, and regularly praises Osama bin Laden. In light of the possibility of the Muslim Brotherhood taking over in Egypt, having a radical Muslim imam on for a shootout was more than appropriate. The heated shootout took up two segments on the Hannity show, and for those disappointed, at times, in Sean’s debating prowess, he redeemed himself...

Cohen, who is Jewish, said Republicans are repeating lies and spreading false information, much like Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels did about Jews before the Holocaust.

    A CNN report on a three-year-old Gaza girl suffering from a disease caused by kidney failure has the makings of a great human interest story. However, the network turned it into an article that is uncomplimentary to Israel and ignores Palestinian Authority indifference. The girl from Gaza is Aya abu Mouwais. The CNN report effectively creates deserved sympathy for her, beginning with the description, “The second she opens her eyes she starts crying. The 3-year-old is in pain every waking moment and has been for two years. “She is suffering from oxalosis, a condition which occurs when the kidneys fail....

    Maj just got the word, on Shep Smith show, scheduled to be announced tomorrow. All combat brigades to be out in 16 months. Real effect is immediate surrender of purpose. No commander is going to undertake any major mission knowing that, at the very longest, no US offensive military power will be in-country after next Spring, so why waste lives to gain something we soon will give away. Offensive operations will stop. Brigades will go into a useless, purely defensive mode. It's over. Our POTUS surrendered. About 3000 Americans volunteered to pay the ultimate price in Iraq so we could...

    While Bernard Madoff is being investigated for his alleged $50 billion fraud scheme, a report says he is considering an insanity defense. "Bernie's family and his attorneys may argue that, somewhere along the line, he had a mental break," a Madoff acquaintance told the New York Daily News. "They may even say he has a multiple personality disorder," the source added Madoff's business began to collapse this fall as investors, hit by the financial crisis and seeking cash, started taking money out faster than Madoff could bring fresh cash into the country.

Well, that John McCain seems to be back after a long journey into the dark jungle of presidential politics where he seemed to veer from his familiar middle-of-the-road approach to politics - an approach that a lot of Arizonans prefer, based on their long support for him.

    Barack Obama conducted his first press conference as President Elect, with Vice President Elect Joe Biden and his Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel at his side and his economic advisors, looking appropriately dour and serious, standing behind him. There was not much in the way of news made at the Obama press conference, aside from a shot taken at an old lady named Nancy Reagan. The majority of the questions were about the current economic situation and what Obama intends to do about it. The short answer appears to be the enactment of some kind of economic stimulus package, the...

    Polls show Clinton holding a stubborn lead over Obama and, if she wins, she will have staved off political death one more time. Yet if Clinton wins by a narrow margin - even after an unusually bad stretch for Obama, including his foolish observation about 'bitter' small-town voters and a horrendous debate on Wednesday - her victory will be underwhelming. In the next two primaries, on 6 May, she trails badly in one (North Carolina) and has surrendered a one-time lead in another (Indiana). Even some Clintonites say they will pressure her to drop out should she lose both those...
  • Late Payments Rise on U.S. Home Equity Credit Lines

    Late payments on U.S. home equity lines of credit rose to a 5-1/2 year high in the second quarter of 2007 but delinquencies on many other types of consumer loans fell, the American Bankers Association said Wednesday. In its quarterly report on consumer borrowing, the bankers group said delinquencies in repaying home equity lines of credit rose to 0.77 percent in the April-June period. That compared to a rate of 0.60 percent in the first quarter and represented the highest rate since the fourth quarter of 2001 when the rate was 0.81 percent. However, the rate of closed-end home equity...

Gilded letters were freshly painted atop the office door yesterday proclaiming "Ways and Means Committee" - confirming that the office now belongs to Rangel, the House panel's new chairman. Sources said Cheney's and his staff's belongings were removed over the holidays. The new digs give Rangel some of the choicest and most politically central real estate in all of Washington - as well as...

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Arnold Schwarzenegger's promise to clean house if he wins California's recall election for governor next week has many nervous state appointees worried their jobs could soon be terminated. While uncertainty is a trademark of any job in politics, California's Oct. 7 recall election could lead to the unusually quick removal of Gov. Gray Davis and many of his estimated 3,000 appointees less than one year after the Democrat won a second term last November. It is a daunting prospect in an uneven economy -- a core reason for the electoral drive to remove Davis -- for...
