No fun for lawmakers
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota legislators return to the state Capitol today for a session that promises to be little fun. Like the kid who gets clothes for Christmas, lawmakers will deal with the necessities, not the luxuries. And, frankly, there is but one overriding necessity on their...

Column: Frustrating, but necessary
WASHINGTON -- This won't comfort Democrats mourning the loss of their filibuster-proof majority, but the existence of the filibuster is, on balance, a good thing. The filibuster is frustrating, literally and intentionally: It frustrates the will of a simple Senate majority. From...

Families take dairy frustrations to Capitol

N.D. tea party scheduled for February
The first shot across the bow of Gov. John Hoeven's new bid for the Senate seat being vacated in a year by Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., is coming from the starboard side. Organizers of Tea Parties in the state, mostly at the right wing of the Republican Party, are planning a convention...

As others see it: A likely GOP gain
It would have been big news had North Dakota Gov. John Hoeven said no to a run for the U.S. Senate. As it was, his announcement Monday to seek the seat being vacated by retiring Democratic Sen. Byron Dorgan was anticlimactic at best, ho-hum at worst. To no one's surprise, GOP faithful...
