    Mormons are probably no more than 5% of the US population so even in two properly run exit poll with decent-sized polling pools, you're likely to get pretty wide confidence intervals.

    So... Susan Rice said she won't become Secretary of State after all.

    Which makes Scott Brown happy, who lost his bid for reelection to Elizabeth Warren. Because now John Kerry is widely expected to succeed Hillary Clinton, and then Brown thinks he has a chance of winning Kerry's senate seat in a special election.

    Even with all the fiscal cliff talk there is still time to have a bit of fun for the President. Obama posted this on fb today.

    I think part of his legacy will be chained cost of living increases effecting social security and retirees, Cuts in military heath care for active and retired people, and only a token tax raise for the VERY wealthy. Again just like last time surrender first then negotiate seems to be the plan

    His approval ratings have been improving so steadily you'd think he feels he has the mandate not to cave to Boehner.




    My suspicion is that their sources say that House Republicans won't accept even this deal, so he can show that he tried the bipartisan effort and that only the GOP is to blame for going over the cliff.

    Okay, the USA already existed, but the CIA definitely did not. It's a naval term, originally.
