    .................In a June 1978 letter, the first presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints proclaimed that “all worthy male members of the Church may be ordained to the priesthood without regard for race or color.” Men of African descent could now hold the priesthood....The revelation may have lifted the ban, but it neither repudiated it nor apologized for it. “It doesn’t make a particle of difference,” proclaimed the Mormon apostle Bruce R. McConkie a few months later, “what anybody ever said about the Negro matter before the first day of June of this year, 1978.” McConkie...

    Boehner is getting some bad advice from somebody -- i.e. the Old Republican Guard senators. He needs to start acting like a statesman instead of an old school politician. Telling people to get their asses in line is no way to compromise. That kind of rhetoric usually accomplishes just the opposite: it usually makes people dig their heels in even deeper. What’s Boehner going do – take their appropriations away? Take their access to special interest campaign funding away? Boehner needs to recognize that in this new era, old school appropriations and campaign funding buy-offs will not work. It is...

"I'm not telling you now what I would or would not consider," the governor said during a media availability at a Los Angeles hospital when he was asked whether he would approve a solution that included a tax increase.

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Joe Lieberman said events of the past few days have vindicated his consistent hard-line stance in favor of a U.S.-led war against Iraq and the toppling of Saddam Hussein. Lieberman is among the most hawkish of the nine candidates seeking the Democratic nomination, and those views have occasionally frustrated party activists in key states, even drawing boos in California. In an interview with The Associated Press Thursday, Lieberman said the collapse of Iraqi forces and the specter of crowds in Baghdad cheering U.S. soldiers brought him satisfaction. ``It was a thrill to...
