Hillary Clinton calls for ?resistance and persistence? from Democrats
In a video released Friday, Hillary Clinton encouraged Democrats to ?move forward with courage, confidence and optimism? as the party prepares to rebuild after losing the White House and failing to gain majorities in either house of Congress in the November elections. The three-minute video was posted online shortly after it was greeted with applause at a Democratic National Committee meeting in Atlanta, Ga.

Rio's evangelical mayor skips wild carnival start
The decision by Rio de Janeiro's deeply religious new mayor to skip the traditional opening of the world's most famous carnival overshadowed the party on its opening night.
