You can hardly walk the halls of the House office building these days. Everybody seems to be moving. The new kids get sworn in after New Years, but with so many veteran members defeated in the mid-terms, that means that many more offices available for swap.
By a 250 to 175 vote, the US House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to repeal the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. The bill now goes to the Senate where its passage is less certain.
The U.S. House of Representatives is debating a measure that would repeal the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy in the military.

In the midst of the plaudits and praise for Richard Holbrooke, I'll remember him for letting war criminals off the hook.
President Barack Obama hasn’t been playing much basketball since he got elbowed in the mouth in a Thanksgiving pickup game. But he found time on Monday to congratulate the best team in the basketball world.
Democratic Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez survived her election, but apparently her beloved cat Gretzky did not. Her annual holiday cards always seem to feature that ball of fluff in silly poses.
If you play online poker for money, you’re probably breaking the law. Four years ago, Congress stopped banks and credit card companies from sending money to gambling websites. That could change soon.
Looking for a job is hard enough. Here's something else to worry about: the federal government is more than a little troubled about Wikileaks and who leaked the documents. Freedom of speech issues aside, if you're applying for a government job, it's a bad idea to start surfing the web for Wikileak material.
You might want to check out CSPAN. Independent Senator Bernie Sanders has just begun hour number EIGHT of a filibuster over the tax cut/unemployment extension deal. He's not at the Jimmy Stewart stage of collapsing at his desk, but it's a rare thing to see a REAL filibuster instead of the THREAT of a filibuster (ie: go ahead and try to get 60 votes for this thing to avoid me talking all day long.
