WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats sweating this year’s elections may be hoping that the Obama administration’s latest delay to the proposed Keystone XL pipeline takes a politically fraught issue off the table for the midterms.

Fat chance.

Michelle Obama: Hanoi Jane Is My Role Model

Hanoi Jane calls American military “war criminals”

“If you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would some day become communist. . . . I, a socialist, think that we should strive toward a socialist society, all the way to communism.”

A White House official says Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning from the Obama administration.

The move comes just a week after the close of the rocky enrollment period for President Barack Obama’s health care law. Website failures marred the opening weeks of the six-month enrollment period, but the administration rebounded strongly by enrolling more than 7 million people in health insurance plans.

Sebelius’ resignation could set the stage for a contentious election-year confirmation hearing for whomever Obama nominates to replace her. Sebelius has served as HHS secretary since the start of the Obama administration.

The official was not authorized to discuss Sebelius’ resignation ahead of the formal announcement and requested anonymity.

Hey Obama! …

Former IRS exempt organizations division Director Lois Lerner now has the dubious distinction of having had two major congressional committees tell the Department of Justice that she may have broken multiple federal civil and criminal statutes, as well as the internal policies and procedures of her agency. There will be much else to be said in coming months about the federal tax agency illegally targeting conservative and Tea Party nonprofits for harassment and politically motivated interference during the 2010 and 2012 election campaigns. At this point, however, three facts stand out.
