    ANKENY, Iowa (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said Saturday the Oval Office requires a wartime veteran, a niche he occupies exclusively among top-tier candidates in his party’s race for the 2020 nomination. During an interview on Iowa PBS in suburban Des Moines, Buttigieg was asked if there’s value in a president who had faced hostile fire. Buttigieg, a Naval intelligence officer in Afghanistan in 2014, noted he had been present for rocket attacks while stationed at Bagram Airfield, and later faced potential danger as an armed driver in Kabul. Another presidential candidate, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, served...

    The Super Committee has failed to find a way to trim $1.2 trillion from the deficit. The fact is, though, the Super Committee was a failure from the moment it was conceived. Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, could not control itself. So it punted its failures to a Super Committee and even the threat of massive defense cuts could not prompt Congress to kick its spending addiction. Now, some members of Congress are even saying “to hell with the defense cuts. We’ll stop those cuts.” Of course. But it was all a bunch of smoke and mirrors for one simple...

    JOHNSTON, Iowa - With her political life on the line, Hillary Rodham Clinton is adopting a sweet-and-sour approach to win over an increasingly skeptical Democratic electorate in Iowa. During a pair of appearances Friday, Clinton made a powerful, emotional appeal to women voters by talking about her mother's troubled childhood. Then she quickly toggled to an attack on Barack Obama and John Edwards, suggesting she is the only contender who can't be hurt by damaging secrets. Appearing on Iowa Public Television, Clinton said she had been "vetted" by two decades of political combat and that "there are no surprises" in...
