Feb 15,2008
One user of Facebook joked to The New York Times that the social networking Web site is "like the Hotel California" immortalized in the old Eagles song. "You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave." Facebook users complain that it has been nearly impossible for them to completely remove their information from the site's labyrinth of archives. An independent online group even has 'sprung up to help ex-users hack through Facebook's ... [full story]

Bill and Hillary Clinton have a bad reputation for throwing folks overboard when the waters get choppy. Remember Lani Guinier, a law school chum of the Clintons who was nominated for a key position at the Justice Department but had her nomination withdrawn after Republicans raised concerns about her views on affirmative action and racial redistricting? The latest casualty is Patti Solis Doyle, who was until recently the campaign manager for Hillary Clinton's presidential quest. ... [full story]

It's always nice to be ardently wooed. But so-called super delegates need to save themselves for the wedding night. And that would be the Democratic National Convention in August. Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are scrapping for every delegate apportioned in the state's primaries and caucuses. Neither might have the numbers to clinch by the convention, though mid-Atlantic primaries today could put one candidate more clearly in the lead - and primaries in Wisconsin, ... [full story]

In America, you can start poor, work hard and end up rich. But winding up rich is easier if you're born to wealthy parents. That's the unsurprising conclusion drawn from new studies of income mobility in America. This still is a country in which people can climb the economic ladder to a better life. But how far they get depends considerably on the head start they get from mom and dad. The Treasury Department recently ... [full story]

U.S. Transportation Secretary Mary Peters is finally joining the discussion over whether to let Mexican trucks onto U.S. roads. The debate over Mexican trucks has raged since the North American Free Trade Agreement was enacted in 1994. The treaty requires Mexico, Canada and the United States to open their highways to trucks from the other two countries. Canada was given access to U.S. roadways, but Mexico wasn't. The reason: The powerful Teamsters Union, which shamefully ... [full story]

For Americans who use credit wisely, life can be more productive and enjoyable. Used unwisely, credit can plunge families and individuals into disaster. With the focus on subprime mortgages and their effect on the broader economy, those who purchased homes they could not afford - either knowingly or under pressure from unscrupulous lenders - face the reality of losing their homes and likely their ability to borrow for some time. Foreclosures also cause banks and ... [full story]

There was no such thing as a Grand Canyon National Park in 1872, when the law governing mining on federal lands was enacted. Times have changed. Yet today, that outdated law still gives federal officials no authority to prevent mining close to America's national parks, and with global prices for metals soaring, companies have been filing a mother lode of mining claims for land within echo distance of some of the most glorious national treasures. ...

For a physician who doesn't make house calls on a weekly television show or advise celebrities in meltdown, Dr. Robert Jarvik is a pretty well-known guy. He's married to Parade magazine columnist Marilyn vos Savant, famous for having the world's highest IQ. Jarvik developed the eponymous Jarvik-7 artificial heart, which caused a sensation when it was implanted into a dying man in 1982. And since 2006, Jarvik has appeared in television commercials for the cholesterol-lowering ... [full story]

There he goes again. Just five weeks after signing into law the first significant reform in more than a decade of the federal Freedom of Information Act, President Bush is moving to gut the measure of a key element. Congress needs to do what it can to counter the president's intent. Rep. David Obey, D-Wis., as chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations, can play a key role in that regard. In his budget request, ... [full story]

Now that Arizona Sen. John McCain will almost certainly carry the GOP banner in this fall's presidential campaign, the Republican Party needs to learn to love him. The departure from the race of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney Thursday leaves the way clear for McCain to claim the nomination. The remaining candidates, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Texas Congressman Ron Paul, can neither catch him in the delegate count nor block him from getting ... [full story]

We are fighting them there so we don't have to fight them here. That's been the Bush administration's spiel since the Iraq invasion in 2003. Five years later, Michael McConnell, the director of national intelligence, told the Senate that al-Qaida is gaining strength and improving its ability to strike at the United States again. In plain English: While we've been creating terrorists and a dandy cause for terrorist recruitment in Iraq, we forwent the knockout ... [full story]

It would have been better for the nation if Mitt Romney had said he just wanted to spend more time with his family. Instead, the former Massachusetts governor, in dropping his bid for the Republican presidential nomination Thursday, insulted the patriotism of most of the American electorate - and its intelligence as well. In his speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, Romney said he was stepping aside because, "I simply cannot let ... [full story]

Feb 08,2008
For decades, the norm for successful presidential candidates has been to secure their party's nominations by offering red meat to base voters, then shifting to the center for the general election. But in this most unusual campaign year, we're witnessing the reverse: Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., just wrapped up his party's nomination - and his very next step was to begin to woo the skeptical GOP rank and file. That's why Thursday - after Mitt ... [full story]
