Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she thinks it's good that Gov. Chris Christie won another term in mostly Democratic New Jersey.

I watched former Vice President Dick Cheney's recent interview on NBC's "Today" show, in which Mr. Cheney talked about his new book, "Heart." It is a technological miracle that Mr. Cheney's health returned after his heart-transplant surgery at the age of 71. What the interview failed to reveal is the fact that under the rules of Obamacare, neither he nor anyone else can legally receive a heart transplant at the age of 71. Had Obamacare been in effect at the time of his surgery, Mr. Cheney would now likely be in the cemetery, not plugging his new book on television. It's just lucky that he got his transplant before Obamacare took effect.

The top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said Monday that he expects U.S. will be involved in some sort of military response to the suspected use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government.
The Republican lawmaker is also the first to say he "won't blink" when it comes to Capitol Hill confrontations that challenge his principles. The result? Mr. Cruz is capable of some canny strategy, even as his critics accuse him of being ruthless, and/or unreasonable.
NBC’s “Today” host Jenna Wolfe, who came out publicly about her gay engagement to partner Stephanie Gosk a few months ago, and their subsequent pregnancy, had a new announcement this week: It’s a healthy girl.
One day after being sentenced to 35 years in prison, Army Pvt. Bradley Manning said Thursday he wants to live the rest of his life as a woman.
Hannah Anderson, the 16-year-old California girl who was saved from her kidnapper, James DiMaggio, when authorities discovered them in a Idaho forest, said in her first television interview since her rescue that she was "a survivor," not a victim.
Major League Baseball's evidence against Alex Rodriguez is so weak he shouldn't serve even one inning of his 211-game suspension, the lawyer for the Yankees slugger said Monday.
