California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's fitness advice for Barack Obama -- squats for his "skinny legs" and biceps curls "to beef up those scrawny little arms" -- got the Democratic nominee's chief strategist wondering: How are the California governor's basketball skills? Schwarzenegger might not know it, strategist David Axelrod said, but "Sen. Obama's pretty fit."

Signaling his commitment to take on the thorny challenge of refashioning American healthcare, President-elect Barack Obama has asked former Sen. Tom Daschle to be secretary of Health and Human Services, placing a political ally with vast Capitol Hill experience at the forefront of the debate.

WASHINGTON - It was a simple scam: Coleen Newton-White, a government contractor, and her husband would take General Services Administration credit cards from the motor pool at Ft. Monroe, Va., and use them to sell fuel at a discount to cash customers who pulled up to service stations five at a time. Between 2008 and 2010, the scheme netted the couple almost $300,000, according to court records. Although the gas scheme is a world away from the nearly $823,000 spent on a lavish Las Vegas-area conference put on by GSA official Jeff Neely - including a mind reader, sushi and in-room parties - it is an example of the fraud that the procurement and property management agency faces regularly.
