All hands on deck

Akin’s breakin’ heart

WASHINGTON -- Some days Mitt Romney must wonder how he got involved with this crew. Here he's trying to talk about jobs, jobs, jobs -- and his political colleagues keep changing the subject to a topic about which an alarming few seem to know anything at all: women.

The hand that rocks the ballot box
