From THINK PROGRESS:
Republican Allen West was just elected to the House of Representatives in Florida’s 22nd district, defeating two-term Democratic Rep. Ron Klein. His first move since being elected is rather strange: he has hired a conservative talk radio host, Joyce Kaufman, to be his congressional chief of staff.

From The New York Times:
WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama left the glittering splendor of the White House on Thursday to visit one of the poorest neighborhoods in the capital to push, prod and inspire struggling high school students.
Her visit to a public school was the start of a star-studded career day organized by Mrs. Obama, who said she had long dreamed of gathering an “amazing group of women” to talk to young people.
On Thursday, the first lady and 21 other women — including the singers Sheryl Crow and Alicia Keys; the former astronaut Mae C. Jemison; Gen. Ann E. Dunwoody of the Army, the first female four-star general; the actor Alfre Woodard and the makeup maven Bobbi Brown — scattered to public and private schools across the region in honor of Women’s History Month.
