CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Some of the harshest attacks on Mitt Romney on the opening night of the Democratic National Convention came from the ranks of governors, including the one who succeeded him, who charged that Romney was “more interested in having the job than doing it.” “In Massachusetts we know Mitt Romney,” Gov. Deval Patrick told the delegates. “[He] talks a lot about all the things he's fixed. I can tell you that Massachusetts wasn't one of them.” From former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, the jabs were far more pointed.

New Jersey's state Assembly passed legislation to allow same-sex marriage on Thursday, and with an expected veto from Gov. Chris Christie, supporters of gay marriage are gearing up for the next step. Steven Goldstein, leader of Garden State Equality, said that he "chose not to waste a breath in pleading" with the governor not to veto. Goldstein, on the gay advocacy group's website, said Friday that to expect the governor to have a change of heart was " ridiculous .

Roscoe Bartlett this fall in a district that could help the party regain control of the House of Representatives. Delaney, who was endorsed by former President Bill Clinton and the Washington Post, defeated state Sen. Rob Garagiola, a rising star in Annapolis who had the backing of Gov. Martin O'Malley and a number of other prominent Maryland Democrats.

You might just be able to make a federal case out of an employer asking to snoop around your social networking account if a new bill wends its way into becoming law. The Social Networking Online Protection Act, or SNOPA, was introduced late last week by Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.). If passed, SNOPA would "prohibit current and potential employers for requiring a username, password or other access to online content," according to a news release on Engel's website.

WASHINGTON -- It may have taken her a while, but Hillary Clinton joined Twitter on Monday, right on the heels of a new poll that finds her popularity dipping after stepping down as secretary of State. The self-described “wife, mom, lawyer, women & kids advocate,” had been noticeably absent from the prominent social network. Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, recently took the family's spotlight with his own Twitter debut on “The Colbert Report.” Speculation had recently increased as to why Clinton, who, if she runs for the nomination for president in 2016, is seen as very difficult to beat , hadn't yet dipped her toe into the social media waters.

A group of Democratic governors sent a simple message to the GOP: "Cheer up. " "These Republicans that are running for president are so depressed," Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin said Friday after a White House meeting with fellow Democrats. "We've got some good news -- a great president creating jobs. And governors who are seeing job creation and therefore revenues. " Most of the state executives are in the nation's capital this weekend for the annual winter meeting of the National Governors Assn.
