His title will be dean, rather than the previous, longtime designation of director, in keeping with JHU's practice with its other academic divisions.

Daniels said in a statement.

WHAT THIS COUNTRY needs is a George W. Bush-Joe Lieberman alliance. Not an alliance of political convenience but of national necessity. After losing the vice presidency and retaining his seat in the evenly divided Senate, Mr. Lieberman emerges as the nation's leading centrist Democrat. He may be the key man Mr. Bush has to deal with if the president-elect hopes to get anything done in Congress. Before the campaign, it would have been logical to consider Al Gore, the Democratic Party's titular leader, as a shoo-in for this role.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut, who rose to national prominence as the 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee, appears likely to face a serious primary challenge this year that could measure the depth of his party's discontent over the Iraq war. Ned Lamont, a businessman and war critic, publicly began seeking support this month for a run against Lieberman in the state's August nominating contest. Lamont is attracting interest largely because of Democratic grumbling - in Connecticut and nationally - about Lieberman's unflinching support of President Bush's policies in Iraq.

America owes a twisted debt of gratitude to Lee Alcorn, who lost his job as president of the Dallas NAACP last week by bringing mindlessness and bigotry out of the shadows, where the country can examine it instead of pretending we have outgrown it. Everybody braced for its arrival from the moment Joseph I. Lieberman became a candidate for vice president, and Alcorn was the first to deliver it in public. Thank you and, while we're at it, mazel tov. Poor Lieberman. Before Alcorn's outburst, he said he expected no bigotry in this campaign.

HARTFORD, Conn. --When John F. Kennedy was nominated for president 40 years ago, the question was whether he would submit to the authority of the pope or of the Constitution. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut would likely raise the same kind of issues as the Democratic vice presidential candidate. Where does the loyalty of an Orthodox Jew lie? Will he feel obligated to Jewish law above American law? This is a case, however, where two laws are better than one. Having two laws means making compromises, figuring out the way competing demands can fit and having a faith in your ability to negotiate the differences between the two. Mr. Lieberman has clearly excelled at this task.

After 24 years in the U.S. Senate, Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, the first and only Jewish politician nominated to a national major party ticket, in 2000, had some advice to his colleagues in a farewell speech Wednesday on the Senate floor. To break the impasse that has paralyzed the body in recent years, Mr. Lieberman preached: "It requires reaching across the aisle and finding partners from the opposite party. That is what is desperately needed in Washington now. " In the last years of his long Senate tenure, it certainly could be said that Joe Lieberman practiced what he preached.

Arguing that the two-party system is corrupt, a Montgomery County businessman is pouring his own money into an independent bid for the U.S. Senate from Maryland. Rob Sobhani, 52, who announced his candidacy this month, is the first candidate to buy television ads in the general election race for the seat now held by Sen. Ben Cardin, a Democrat. The spots have been aired heavily in Baltimore and Washington. "Our politics is broken," Sobhani, a political economist and energy entrepreneur from Potomac, says in one 30-second spot.

FRISCO, Texas — Someone told the girl about Rucker Park in Harlem, told her that all the best players gathered there for pickup games. Harlem was two train rides and a long walk from her neighborhood in Queens, but she had fallen in love with basketball — shooting hoops in the playground each afternoon until dark — and nothing could keep her from having a look. Taking money from her mother's purse, she announced that she was headed for the park, neglecting to mention which park.

To a self-described "old feminist" such as Hadassah Lieberman, the recent blog-inspired attack against her - all related to husband Joe Lieberman's obstruction of the Democrats' health care agenda - has been a surreal mix of "McCarthyism" and a "snowball fight on the playground." Actually, ambush is a better word. Blogger Jane Hamsher, a movie producer ("Natural Born Killers") and political activist, went after Mrs. Lieberman as Senator Lieberman was refusing to vote for a health care reform bill that included expanding Medicare to people as young as 55. Ms. Hamsher claimed that because Mrs. Lieberman was a lobbyist and had worked for the pharmaceutical industry, she should be fired from her position as global ambassador for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer charity.

Teacher wants acid thrown on attackers KANDAHAR, Afghanistan : A 23-year-old teacher burned in an acid attack on 15 schoolgirls and instructors wants the Afghan government to throw acid on her attackers and then hang them. Kandahar's governor said yesterday that authorities had arrested 10 alleged Taliban militants in the Nov. 12 attack and that several had confessed to taking part. Gov. Rahmatullah Raufi said the men would be tried in open court, a pledge that pleased Nuskaal, a first-year math teacher who suffered acid burns on her shoulders.

WASHINGTON - When Sen. Joe Lieberman broke from his longtime Democratic allegiance to back Republican John McCain for president, some rank-and-file Democrats were angry. And after Lieberman spoke at the Republican National Convention and criticized Barack Obama, they were practically apoplectic. Once Obama won and Democrats cemented their grip on Congress, the talk quickly turned to punishing the senator from Connecticut, who just eight years ago was the Democratic nominee for vice president.
