Sweeping change likely after Donald Trump takes oath
 He will be a president like no other, and whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing seems to, at this point, be a matter of remarkably disparate opinion. But when President-Elect Donald Trump takes the oath of office on Jan. 20, the nation will see a sweeping change in policy, style and rhetoric, possibly unlike any they’ve seen...

Ben Carson to Sen. Sherrod Brown: ‘You remind me of Columbo’
 Sen. Sherrod Brown has heard imitations of his gravelly voice, watched people imitate his retelling of why he wears a pin of a canary in a cage (it’s about worker’s rights) and had people point out his occasionally rumpled appearance.
