Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Majority of Americans find Republicans 'too extreme'

Washington - A majority of Americans believe Republicans are too extreme and need to compromise more, a new poll has suggested.

According to a CNN/ORC poll, 53 percent of Americans said the GOP is too extreme, which is up 17 percentage points from two years ago, when Republicans were coming off a midterm walloping where they took control of the House.

A matching 53 percent said Republicans should compromise more. However, the poll showed that Americans don't want the GOP to lose control of the lower chamber, Politico reports.

Only 37 percent said Democrats are too extreme, and 41 percent said President Barack Obama's party should compromise more, the poll said.

The poll of 620 adults was conducted from Dec. 17 and Dec. 18 and has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points, the report said.
