Morning Newsdome: Is President Obama spending $200 million a day to visit India?

>> An anonymous Indian official told the Press Trust of India yesterday that President Obama would be spending approximately $200 million a day on his upcoming trip to India. Every source pretty much agrees that those numbers "have no basis in reality" except Republicans, with Sean Hannity pointing out that it's a lot of money to visit "one of the biggest mosques in Indonesia." (CBS)

>> Nancy Pelosi was expected to step down for her leadership position of the Democratic party, or retire altogether, but reports come that she wants to run for minority leader. Other Democrats have singled out Heath Shuler of North Carolina to run against Pelosi for the position. Whatever, losers, get over it. (ABC News)

>> 150,000 jobs were added in October, the first monthly increase since May. Thank goodness the American people voted out all the Democrats who had nothing to do with this. (Bloomberg)

>> Now with control of the House, Republicans will have a lot of sway in the once-a-decade task of redrawing congressional districts. Lets call out gerrymandering before anythings even decided. (MSNBC)

>> And finally: Eugenie Blanchard, a French nun and the world's oldest person, died at age 114. Family attribute her long life because "she had decided to give her virginity to God." If that's the case, there's no way I'll make it to 40. (BBC)
