Godless Man Miraculously Elected
Religion. California Rep. Pete Stark becomes the highest-ranking elected official to confess he does not believe in God. Thirty-four years in Congress will do that to you. Humanist groups credit Stark for flouting taboo. Just wait till they find out Hillary Clinton is a woman.
Espionage. Real-life Bond girl Valerie Plame, the face that launched a thousand subpoenas, testifies before Congress. She wants to set the record straight that she was working undercover when "fall guy" Scooter Libby and others leaked her identity to members of the press. As for why she waited so long to speak out, she could tell Congress, but then she'd have to kill them.
