Also unknown is whether that person would have a prayer against the experienced Pelosi, as flawed as her detractors say she is. Pelosi is acting like the next speaker alrea... Read more

That drop has been felt the hardest in the West, where the homeownership rate stands just under 60 percent, according to the U.S. Census ... Read more
