It’s nothing new for a Republican to call for Obama’s impeachment, but it’s not something that’s engaged high-profile party figures. There's a reason Boehner says he disagrees with Palin.
House Speaker John Boehner wants to take President Obama to court on the narrow point that he delayed the employer mandate in Obamacare.
The Obama episode of 'Between Two Ferns' is not the show's best work, some fans say. But it has been viewed online 22 million times and now is an Emmy nominee. If it wins, it wouldn't be a White House first.
The US has a long history of spying on its friends. Tensions between the US and Germany were raised last year by Edward Snowden's revelations of US eavesdropping on its European allies.
A new poll suggests that a majority of Americans would rather hear less from Sarah Palin. But that's never been her audience, and many Republicans still like her.
Wednesday's meeting is billed as an exchange of ideas over border issues that could boost Gov. Rick Perry's stature in the GOP. It could also give Obama a talking point that House Republicans are not so eager to talk about.
Palin cites border security as her main reason to impeach Obama, and she is not the first to call for such a move. But the votes aren't there, and the maneuver could hurt the GOP.
Elizabeth Warren would make a better guardian of the Obama legacy than Hillary Clinton. So runs the argument. But the mainstream media isn't buying it. Here are a few reasons why.
A new poll offers evidence that the trend toward increasingly polarized US politics may be a stronger tidal pull than the desire to stand independent from the parties.
'Kissing congressman' Vance McAllister changes his mind, says he has apologized to voters and 'worked it through with my family.' But this time, he faces widespread Republican opposition.
It may not be the wealth gaffes that are driving down Hillary Clinton's poll numbers, but rather the higher levels of scrutiny that come with being a likely presidential contender.
Howard Baker's strong advice helped Reagan through the Iran-Contra scandal, but he also knew when to back down. He urged dropping the line, 'Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall,' but the words were the president's own, and they stayed.
In his vast and varied career as US senator, White House chief of staff, and ambassador, Howard Baker was rarely away from his camera, which gave him a capacity to observe and reflect on events.
Howard Baker, who accomplished much in his years in Washington, may be best remembered for a single question he asked as a senator during the Watergate investigation.
Hillary Clinton insists she's no Mitt Romney when it comes to appearing out of touch with America's middle class. But she now concedes that her remarks about her own family's financial status were 'inartful.'
With Las Vegas out of the running, we're guessing Dallas. Studies show parties get no boost from the state they pick for conventions, so Republicans might as well meet in GOP-friendly Texas.
The Hillary Clinton wealth flap is still going strong, and some pundits are wondering if she is simply a bad campaigner. Others note that now is the right time to make mistakes.
First lady Michelle Obama said this week that she'd like to see a woman hold the Oval Office 'as soon as possible' – and that she herself has no designs on it, or any other elected position. That kind of narrows the options.
As Hillary Clinton stumbles over her 'dead broke' remark, Joe Biden tells those who might question his ability to empathize with the problems of working people that he's got no stocks, no bonds, and no savings account.
Did Hillary Clinton mean to exclude her family from the ranks of the 'truly well off,' in a remark to The Guardian? Americans will elect very rich presidents. But if she intends to run in 2016, here's why her comments are dangerous.
