The 113th Congress won't be sworn in until January, but it's already making history on the religious-diversity front.
Members of Congress from the left to the right applauded Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for removing a major Iranian dissident group from the U.S. terrorist list, although they complained that her action was "long overdue."

Eisenhower object to everything from its giant scale to its depiction of the Cold War president and famed World War II general as a "barefoot boy from Kansas," new images and documents reveal other key elements overshadowed by the furor and show how the controversial project developed.
