Michael D'Antonio is the author of the book "Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success" and co-author, with Peter Eisner, of the book "The Shadow President, The Truth About Mike Pence." The opinions expressed in this commentary are his own. View more opinion on CNN. (CNN) With so many Trump-related books already on the shelf, publishing houses have reached the point where perhaps the only author still worth hearing from would be the fly that landed on former Vice President Mike Pence's head during his debate with now Vice President Kamala Harris. Absent the fly, Simon & Schuster has signed their next-best option: Pence . The question now, is whether his story will create any buzz. Michael D'Antonio Pence, who was drafted as the pious counterweight to then-candidate Donald Trump, is one of the few major figures who stayed on the job for all four years -- no small feat, considering the high turnover in Trump's administration. (Of course, he … [Read more...] about Mike Pence knows the truth about Trump, but will he tell all?

NASA’s Artemis program , already slated to send the first woman to the moon in 2024, will also send the first person of color to the moon. Acting NASA Administrator Steve Jurczyk revealed the additional mission objective in a news release Friday praising a freshly released Biden administration budget proposal that would give the agency $24.7 billion.

Kamala Harris in Iowa in 2019. Is she excited about going back? Photo: Joshua Lott/Getty Images A couple of months ago, on the anniversary of the star-crossed 2020 Iowa Democratic caucuses , I suggested that the many traumas of the pandemic year had made the Iowa caucus-results meltdown seem a lot less important, and the prospects of a major shakeup in the presidential nominating process a lot less likely. Now as the political machinery for the next presidential cycle slowly gets underway, the odds that Iowa and New Hampshire will maintain their traditional positions as the first caucus and first primary states, in tandem with the other two “protected “early” states, Nevada and South Carolina, keep going up.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine on Friday delayed the three remaining executions that were scheduled for this year. The Republican governor is making good on his promise of no executions in 2021. He cited no source for lethal injection drugs and lack of movement by lawmakers in making a switch in execution method a priority. In a December interview with The Associated Press, DeWine said lethal injection is no longer an option for Ohio executions, and lawmakers must choose a different method of capital punishment before any inmates can be put to death in the future. The statement was the first time the lifelong conservative and pro-life lawmaker made a definitive stance on the death penalty in Ohio. DeWine said in the interview that he still supports capital punishment as state law. But he has come to question its value since the days he helped write the state’s current law — enacted in 1981 — because of the long delays between crime and punishment.
