Most viewed: Jane Harman: Out of the fray

As we honor the life and legacy of Sidney Harman, who passed away Tuesday night, Patt Morrison's recent interview with Harman's wife, Jane, has also drawn attention. In it, the former congresswoman, who dubbed herself the "best Republican in the Democratic Party," opens up about her interrogation techniques, so-called tension between her and Nancy Pelosi, how Congress has changed over the years, and her new job at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. She also talks about her California ties and the Venice home she and her husband shared.
