Do Tell: Rep. Steve Cohen on Acting, Warren Zevon and Impeaching the Attorney General

Meet freshman Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), a fun-loving hipster in an aging man's body, a liberal Jew from a mostly black district (which is why he's at risk of being a one-termer), a lover of music and a Hollywood extra. A baseball fan, Cohen, 58, talks about coming "to the majors," sitting on the House Judiciary Committee and getting the mouth-watering thrill of power from...

Rep. Kuhl: Just Joking About Packing Heat

You can imagine how startled we were to read that Rep. Randy Kuhl (R-N.Y.) is considering arming himself in the wake of war protests at his district offices.

Partisan Divide Over Barry Bonds?

While President Bush and Barack Obama deftly dodged the issue of Barry Bonds, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her GOP counterpart, Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), made no bones about the way they feel.
