CHARLESTON, W.Va. – West Virginia's top legislative leaders aren't sure clamoring over coal this election season does much good for Appalachia's already-sputtering industry.
Used to navigating the metaphorical shark-infested waters of Washington DC politics, the two men will encounter real life predators as they work together to stave off hunger and thirst.

The White House declared Friday the United States was at war with Islamic State radicals, seeking to rub out another semantic flap over its Syria policy. In a series of television interviews Secretary of State John Kerry had appeared to be reluctant to term the expansion of US operations against IS in Iraq and Syria as "war."
President Barack Obama's support among women, the young, and Latinos has dipped to an all-time low in the most recent Washington Post-ABC News poll.

The fierce debate on CNN between Sen. John McCain and former White House press secretary Jay Carney after President Obama's speech is an excellent example of how Republicans and Democrats in Washington frequently live in parallel universes.

For months, state and national Republican groups have been criticizing Democratic Rep. John Tierney in Massachusetts' 6th Congressional District as an extreme partisan on the far left, hoping to leave him politically wounded and vulnerable to GOP challenger Richard Tisei in the November election.
