FILE - In this May 7, 2013 file photo, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo. speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington. The biggest Republican-leaning money machines are spending dramatically less to help the party ahead of the 2014 congressional elections, a year after big-dollar conservative groups poured millions into unsuccessful campaigns against President Barack Obama and Democratic candidates, and the GOP failed to retake the White House or the Senate. Last year, McCaskill defeated Republican, Rep. Todd Akin, who emerged from a three-way primary only to implode in August after suggesting publicly that female victims of "a legitimate rape" have the biological capacity to prevent pregnancy.

FILE - In this Sept. 2010 photo released on Saturday, Oct. 30, 2010, then Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin carries a hunting rifle during his trip in Ubsunur Hollow in the Siberian Tyva region (also referred to as Tuva), on the border with Mongolia, Russia. Vladimir Putin turns 60-years old on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012, and has recently sought to demonstrate his youthful vigor by many personal endeavors, but while he has shown creativity in his action-man stunts, the Russian president seems surprisingly vulnerable to the vagaries of oil prices.
