From the Los Angeles Times:
Under President Bush, California Democrats often felt like Rodney Dangerfield.
But with Barack Obama headed to the White House — giving their party control of both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue for the first time in 14 years — lawmakers from one of the nation’s bluest states are looking to gain more than just respect. They expect to wield more political clout as well.
Not only will House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco preside over a bigger Democratic majority with a friendlier president, but Californians will chair four House committees, more than any other state.

From the Yakima Herald-Republic:
Former 4th District Congressman Jay Inslee has introduced a resolution in the House that directs the House Judiciary Committee to investigate whether Attorney General Alberto Gonzales should be impeached.
“The White House is defending the indefensible actions of Alberto Gonzales,” Inslee said in statement on his congressional Web site. “If the president won’t do his job, Congress will do ours.”
