Democrats yet to decide on Benghazi panel

Will it be a boycott or a chaperone?

House Democrats remained undecided Friday on whether they would join a select committee created by majority Republicans to investigate the Benghazi terror attack.

The chamber's Democratic leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, described a split in her caucus over the matter in remarks to reporters that lambasted Republicans for what she called a "political stunt," "subterfuge" and a "diversionary tactic."

Options under consideration include participating as a minority bloc, which Republicans have proposed; having a lone member take part to register disapproval but maintain a presence, or rejecting the entire process as a partisan witch hunt.

"The question is what are the terms under which Democrats can participate," Pelosi said, citing the need for her side to concur with any committee decision to issue subpoenas. FULL STORY.

At 6:30p ET, two Congressman are in the #Crossfire; Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) and Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA) join Van Jones and S.E. Cupp to debate.

Santorum: No, Rand's not my leader

(CNN) – Rick Santorum said Monday he doubts a Libertarian-leaning candidate, like Rand Paul, could be nominated to lead the Republican Party in a presidential election.

Asked by co-host Van Jones on CNN's "Crossfire" if he could support the Kentucky senator if he winds up running and is nominated in 2016, Santorum said he doesn't think he’ll have to consider that ultimately.

Tune in to Crossfire, weeknights @ 6:30 pm ET on CNN

"Well, first off, I don't think that will happen because a Republican Party is not a Libertarian Party. It is a conservative party and it will nominate a conservative, not a libertarian," Santorum said. FULL STORY

Does Clinton need a tough primary fight?

A small edge right now in a key indicator of the midterm elections could lead to a big advantage for the Republicans over the Democrats come November.

That's the suggestion from a new CNN/ORC International poll, that also indicates that President Barack Obama's lackluster approval ratings and pessimistic perceptions about the economy could also make 2014 a good year for the GOP at the ballot box.

Is there a Republican wave coming to Washington? Are Democrats doing themselves a disservice by putting all bets on Hillary?

At 6:30pm ET, Former Republican Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum debates with Former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland. Newt Gingrich and Van Jones will host the debate.
