     Durbin humbled by loss of Senate as Illinois House delegation gets more conservative

  • The return of the Clinton Democrats (not really)

    Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes is running for U.S. Senate in the great state of Kentucky. She is a woman of conviction, of substance, of principle. "I'm not an empty dress," she insists, "I'm not a rubber stamp, and I am not a cheerleader! I am a...
