  1. GOP Takes Control of Congress

    It’s swearing-in day for the 114th U.S. Congress, with Republicans taking control of both the Senate and House. Incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the Keystone XL oil pipeline tops the agenda, with Obamacare and immigration close behind. The incoming class, with 104 women, 33 Hispanics, 12 Asian-Americans and two Native Americans, is the most diverse ever. John Boehner won a contested vote for his third term as House Speaker, giving him a front-row seat to the skirmishes ahead.
