    Speaking to Sean Hannity on Fox News Monday night, Sarah Palin was defiant in the face of the recent attacks on her in the aftermath of Tucson shooting, saying that her critics were “not going to shut me up.” In her first public interview since issuing her video response to the Arizona shooting, Palin spoke out on “Hannity” against critics who have called her campaign rhetoric “vitriolic” and made subtle and not-so-subtle inferences that such language in some way motivated alleged shooter Jared Lee Loughner, who killed six people and injured many others, including Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, on Jan....

    Short: I'll be vilified for this - but I just can't walk out now By Marie Woolf, Chief Political Correspondent 19 March 2003 Clare Short's version of events goes like this: she was writing her resignation statement when suddenly she decided to stay in her job. Having nearly completed the draft valediction, she thought: "We've got to look after the people in Iraq; we've got to drive forward the peace process to get the Palestinian state; we've got to make sure there's not a humanitarian disaster."
