Hillary has been sworn-in as our country's new Secretary of State. Party at Bill's house.

Now we hear that Caroline Kennedy withdrew from consideration for Hillary's Senate Seat because of an assortment of skeletons in her closet. If you just arrived on this planet, that's very rare for a Kennedy.

Heath Ledger's relatives say that they're excited the late actor earned an Oscar nominated and thrilled that, should he win, they'd have something else to fight over.

Kelly Osbourne has checked into rehab. Boy, who could have seen THAT coming?

A woman in California has given birth to octuplets. Kids today are just too afraid to come out by themselves.

Illinois Governor Blagojevich is making as many media appearances as possible to try and improve his image.  Unfortunately, in his rush to get on every show, he actually booked an appearance on "Deal or No Deal".

Home Depot has announced that they're laying off 7,000 employees, which of course, means a serious glut in the orange apron market.
