The total cost of the Iraq war is approaching the Vietnam War's expense, a congressional report estimates, while spending for military operations after 9/11 has exceeded it. The new report by the Congressional Research Service estimates the U.S. has spent $648 billion on Iraq war operations, putting it in range of the $686 billion, in 2008 dollars, spent on the Vietnam War -- the second most expensive war behind World War II.

Indiana, a state which President Obama flipped from red to blue in his 2008 election victory, became the Republican Party's first pickup in a U.S. Senate race Tuesday. At 7 p.m., multiple outlets projected that former Sen. Dan Coats would defeat Democratic Rep. Brad Ellsworth to claim the seat being vacated by retiring Democrat Evan Bayh. Bayh's surprise decision not to seek reelection in February jolted the party, still reeling from the shocking defeat of Democrat Martha Coakley in the special election to fill Ted Kennedy's former seat in Massachusetts.

It always helps to show up. Republican Herman Cain, a former chief executive of Godfather Pizza and the only declared candidate of either party for the 2012 presidential election, won a straw poll Sunday among "tea-party" supporters at a weekend policy summit in Phoenix. Cain was one of the weekend's most popular speakers. Two other presumed candidates who showed up -- U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty -- placed second and third. But the event's sponsor, Tea Party Patriots, also released separate results for online voting.

The 2012 presidential campaign lurched to an unconventional start Thursday night, as the Republican Party put several lesser-known candidates on display in the first debate of the season. A handful of second-tier contenders was given 90 minutes of precious national TV time after better-known GOP contenders declined to participate. The event might have played to the advantage of Tim Pawlenty, the most heralded of those on the South Carolina debate stage. But it didn't exactly work out that way. Instead, tough questioning from the debate panel repeatedly put the former Minnesota governor on the defensive.

Gary McGivern, convicted of murdering a deputy sheriff but granted clemency by Gov. Mario M. Cuomo in a politically explosive decision, was denied parole Friday. Cuomo commuted McGivern's minimum sentence on New Year's Eve and made him eligible for immediate parole consideration, provoking vehement protests from law enforcement groups.
