10 People with Unbelievable Medical Conditions
From just plain bizarre to the highly debilitating, these folks suffer from medical conditions few will ever understand.
"America’s Wars of Self-Destruction" -- War is a poison. It is a poison that nations and groups must at times ingest to ensure their survival. But, like any poison, it can kill you just as surely as the disease it is meant to eradicate
"Conservative Identity Crisis" -- There is a second transition under way over which President-elect Barack Obama has no control—the transition of conservatives to minority status. How they do this will have a powerful impact on the new presidency.

"Closing Guantanamo" -- The U.S. government’s failure to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center for alleged terrorists continues to haunt and color our standing in the world.
"Third-Party Blues" -- Ralph Nader is right: The two-party system is failing America.
