News from The Hill:
Pelosi: House is ‘in play’ in 2012
By Mike Lillis
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that Democrats have a shot at taking back the House in 2012.
The former Speaker touted the diversity of the candidates the Democrats have recruited – “two generals, a colonel… legislators, small business people, mayors, many women and minorities” – and noted that the party, despite being the minority, has outraised the Republicans on the campaign trail this year.
“We have definitely put the House in play,” she said during her weekly press briefing in the Capitol.

The two worked together in the late 1990s, the report said.
Cain campaign spokesman J.D. Gordon told CNN that Cain “has said over the past two days at public events that we could see other baseless allegations made against him as this appalling smear campaign continues. MORE

In a rare show of goodwill, Pakistan’s cabinet has voted to normalize trade relations with India, a key step in patching up the neighboring nations’ fraught relationship. Pakistan will grant “Most Favored Nation” status to India, meaning that the countries can trade on equal terms and eschew high tariffs. India accorded the same status to Pakistan almost 20 years ago, but Pakistan didn’t return the favor until now.
