This week Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley brought the legal hammer down on some of the country's biggest banks. Coakley filed a lawsuit Thursday against Bank of America Corp., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Wells Fargo & Co., GMAC and Citigroup Inc. on Thursday, accusing the banks of deceptive foreclosure practices.

Also this week, after more than three decades in Congress, Barney Frank, one of the nation's most out spoken, articulate and pugnacious liberals, announced he would not seek re-election.

And with just over one month to go before New Hampshire's presidential primary, businessman Herman Cain is stumbling over allegations of infidelity. Mitt Romney remains the front runner in New Hampshire, but there is fresh buzz building around former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
