House GOP to Offer Debt Limit Hike in Exchange for Senate Budget
By Daniel Newhauser, Jonathan Strong | 11:57 a.m.
WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — After a private three-day strategy session here, House Republicans are poised to announce a plan to allow a temporary debt limit increase under the condition that the Senate passes a budget.
INFLUENCE
President Barack Obama’s decision to collect unlimited corporate cash for his inauguration has triggered broad speculation about what he really plans to do with the money.
Organizers of President Barack Obama’s second inauguration say they’ve made changes in security and logistics that should prevent some of the problems seen in 2008, but the size of the crowd could be the biggest factor that determines how smoothly things run.
There are hundreds of inaugural events taking place this weekend, and while everyone knows about the official balls, here are some of the more fun, quirky goings-on. Some feature mural painting and spitballing big ideas. One involves hip-hop superstar Lupe Fiasco, another the homegrown street artist BORF, who created the poster art for Nevermind the Inauguration. This weekend, belt out patriotic karaoke. Heck, go to a pig roast luau. So spend the next few days seeing the best of our diamond district. Go forth and party!

OPINION
By Morton M. Kondracke
Here we go again. Instead of learning from the past four years to avoid brinkmanship, make deals and solve problems, it looks as though President Barack Obama and congressional Republicans just need to fight.
OPINION
By Norman Ornstein
I am a firm believer in the advise and consent role of the Senate on important executive confirmations. A careful look at the qualifications, temperament, moral character and background of key officials is a good thing.
