The “full Ginsburg” is a buzzword that refers to an appearance by one person on all five American major Sunday morning talk shows on the same day: This Week on ABC, Fox News Sunday, Face the Nation on CBS, Meet the Press on NBC, and Late Edition on CNN. State of the Union replaced Late Edition on CNN in January 2009.

The term is named for William H. Ginsburg, the lawyer for Monica Lewinsky during the sexual conduct scandal involving President Bill Clinton. Ginsburg was the first person to accomplish this feat, on February 1, 1998.

The offices of shadow U.S. Representative and shadow U.S. Senator are elective offices created by the District of Columbia as part of its efforts to gain full admittance to the Union as a State. The office originated with the election of the first Shadow Senators in 1796, and the position of Shadow US Representative first appeared in 1956 in the Territory of Alaska. The name was based on the traditional practice of the Official Opposition appointing shadow cabinets in parliamentary systems.

The Harry S Truman Little White House in Key West, Florida was the winter White House for PresidentHarry S Truman for 175 days during 11 visits. The house is located in the Truman Annex neighborhood ofOld Town, Key West.

The house was originally waterfront when it was built in 1890 as the first officer’s quarters on thesubmarine base naval station. The wooden duplex contained Quarters A for the base commandant and Quarters B for the paymaster.

In 1911 the home was converted into a single-family dwelling to house the base commandant and additional land was filled in front of the house. The waterfront view was eventually blocked by a new building at the station.
