    Barbara Boxer, the senator from California, leaned over her press secretary, Peter True, as he sat at an HP desktop computer and tried to find an old campaign ad from 2010.

The question is not if Hillary or Carly uses her gender they both do. The question is how they use it. Much like her private servers and missing emails, Hillary doesn't try to hide her "anything to win" survival mentality. The surprising part is that it never seems to hurt her. Hillary moved to New York in September, 1999. She'd decided she was ready for primetime and set her sights...

    California Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina's prospects appear to be fading, with a slew of new polls showing her several points behind Sen. Barbara Boxer. The latest, California's respected nonpartisan Field Poll, was released Thursday night and showed Boxer with an 8-percentage-point lead among likely voters. The incumbent had 49 percent of the vote to the challenger's 41 percent. That result comes after a Suffolk University poll released earlier in the week gave Boxer a 10-point lead, a CNN/Time poll put her ahead by 5 points and a Los Angeles Times survey had her leading by 8. Two automated surveys,...

Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer voted with all but one Democrat to halt consideration of trade promotion authority, a fast-track process that would restrict Congress to an up-or-down vote without amendment on new trade agreements, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership with Asia.

Whoever takes Boxers place can expect to become the states senior senator after 2018, when the then-85-year-old Dianne Feinstein is also widely expected to retire. But ambitious Democrats should beware: Their eagerness, even greed, could do in their partys hold on Boxers spot. It has happened before in California, and very recently.

Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who represent both sides of the partys ideological spectrum. Boxer, whose fourth term expires at the end of 2016, has a paltry $149,000 in her campaign account, less than almost every other senator facing election next year. As the nations most populous state, California is expensive to cover with advertising. If Boxer decides to run for reelection, she would face a major fundraising...

    He was the second man to beat Muhammad Ali, breaking Ali's jaw and sending him to the hospital in their 1973 heavyweight fight. Ken Norton frustrated Ali three times in all, including their final bout at Yankee Stadium where he was sure he had beaten him once again. Norton, who died Wednesday at the age of 70, lost that fight for the heavyweight title. But he was forever linked to Ali for the 39 rounds they fought over three fights, with very little separating one man from the other in the ring.

    After being rebuffed on the carbon tax, California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer said she will try to pass it again through tax reform. Boxers carbon tax bill from earlier this year does not have the 60 votes necessary to pass the Senate unimpeded, reports the Hill newspaper. She claims a carbon tax would enable other tax rates to be lowered.

    Just when you think Washington politics couldn't get dirtier, Congress finds a new low. To hold onto their illegal Obamacare subsidy that no other American earning $174,000 could get, members of Congress are trying to silence the subsidy's chief critic, Sen. David Vitters, by dredging up a 2007 unproven accusation that Vitters patronized a prostitute before being elected to the Senate. Shockingly, the cabal also proposes that any member of Congress who votes for Vitter's proposal would be ineligible for the subsidy if Vitter fails and the subsidy stays. Has anyone in Congress read the Constitution? You can't make a...

Barbara Boxer, U.S. Chemical Safety Board Chairman Rafael Moure-Eraso asked the California Democrat to help the board obtain evidence under control of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that he contends is essential to the boards investigation, the Waco Tribune-Herald and Austin American-Statesman reported.
