Roger Clemens, To Be Or Not to B12

Roger Clemens still has a thing for vitamin B12. The legendary (and embattled) pitcher loaded up on B12 -- in the form of a big beef sandwich -- the night before his first day of meetings this week with members of Congress who are investigating drug use in Major League Baseball. On Tuesday night, Clemens and his legal and public relations team headed to the...

Harry Reid, Living in Orwell's 1984

He may officially be the Senate majority leader, but Harry Reid (D-Nev.) feels like a powerless rebel trapped in Big Brother's totalitarian world.

Pelosi Skips Calif. Primary to Work the NASCAR Vote

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has remained neutral in the Democratic presidential primary. So much so that instead of spending Super Tuesday getting out the vote in her state's crucial primary contest or capitalizing off all the press attention -- she stayed in Washington to schmooze with a NASCAR driver. Pelosi, who voted on an absentee ballot last week (for whom, we know not), hosted...

A Clue to How Hillary Clinton Found Her Voice

After her big upset in New Hampshire last month, Hillary Rodham Clinton famously declared, "I found my own voice." What she also found was her own voice coach. According to Clinton campaign's latest federal campaign disclosure report, the Democratic presidential candidate paid $7,500 to voice and drama coach extraordinaire Michael Sheehan in October. Sheehan, a graduate of the Yale School of Drama who once was...
