    Who wouldn't pay to listen to such sweet sounds? Here’s what I’ve never quite worked out about people paying Hillary $200,000 to speak to them (or even $1 for that matter). Since it obviously isn’t because they enjoy listening to her, are they simply paying for her star power in order to ensure they get standing-room only for their business or association event? Or is (or should I say was) it the other way around . . . you’re paying Hillary to speak as a kiss-up so that she’ll take care of you once she returns to political power?

    This man is in second place nationally, and tied for first if you believe a few recent polls. He's steadily gained momentum and ground on Donald Trump, and now he's going to capitalize on his momentum by...stepping away from the campaign trail for two weeks for a hybrid fundraising push/book tour. ABC News reports: Republican presidential contender Dr. Ben Carson has put his public campaign events on hold for two more weeks to go on book tour for his new tome “A More Perfect Union” and catch up on fundraising events. The campaign has been careful to separate campaign events...

    n 1986, I was as ready to leave the closet as I would ever be—but how would I do so? Though I was a third term Democratic congressman from Massachusetts, I had lived too long with the burden of “the gay thing” to treat coming out as a political matter alone. For many years, I was ashamed of myself for hiding my membership in a universally despised group. I’d been afraid of exposure, and angry at myself for my self-denial. I’d felt shame as I watched younger gay men and lesbians confront the bigots openly with a courage that I...

    Neurosurgeon Ben Carson has hired former Newt Gingrich fundraiser Amy Pass to be his national finance director. Pass, according to longtime Carson pal Terry Giles, who is running the show for his friend behind the scenes, helped raise over $52 million for Gingrich’s group American Solutions and went on to serve as the national finance director of his 2012 presidential campaign. “While I believe Dr. Carson will be second to none in grassroots fund raising, we are by no means willing to surrender to anyone regarding traditional approaches,” Giles told National Review Online in an email on Tuesday. He said...

    Lena Dunham is reportedly threatening to sue the right-wing website which last week accused her of sexually abusing her little sister Grace when they were children. In the wake of the allegations, the creator and star of HBO's Girls, has cancelled two stops on her book tour scheduled this week in Belgium and Germany for health issues. On Monday, she tweeted that she was 'deeply sorry' to miss the Antwerp Book Fair and a signing in Berlin, adding that she's 'so grateful for your energy and support'.

    Lena Dunham has canceled two book tour dates in Europe amid accusations that she molested her sister when they were children. The actress tweeted on Monday that she was no longer going to attend events in Belgium and Germany. "To my Belgian readers, so very sorry to miss the Antwerp Book Fair today but I can't wait to come back and eat fries with you. Much love," she wrote. "German readers: I am deeply sorry to miss tomorrow's event in Berlin. I am so grateful for your energy and support. Mit viele liebe." The "Girls" star, 28, has been criticized...

    Mitt Romney and his former running mate, Paul Ryan, will be making their first public appearance together since losing to Obama/Biden two years ago. Ryan is traveling the country to promote a book and is also said to be considering a run for the White House himself. Romney will interview Ryan Thursday night on stage at the Union League Club of Chicago. Ryan's book has met some criticism given its handling of the immigration issue - which is increasingly being exposed as a stone cold loser of an issue in the very mid-term elections Ryan suggested it be used by...

    A standard defense for Hillary Rodham Clinton when facing questions about Benghazi, Libya, has been to cite her commissioning of a report from the State Department’s Accountability Review Board (ARB), which took a deep look at the attacks that claimed the lives of four U.S. personnel on Sept. 11, 2012. In testimony before Congress in January 2013, Clinton said: “I hurried to appoint the Accountability Review Board led by Ambassador Pickering and Admiral Mullen so we could more fully understand from objective, independent examination, what went wrong and how to fix it. I have accepted every one of their recommendations.”...

    Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably already know that Hillary Clinton has a memoir coming out. “Hard Choices” hits bookshelves nationwide next Tuesday and a month-long, cross-country book tour will follow. Notably, however, for the potential presidential contender, there are no stops planned – yet – in Iowa, New Hampshire, or any other politically key, early-primary state. And there’s at least one other big hole in her schedule: Arkansas – the state that launched Bill and Hillary Clinton’s political careers. Clinton has yet to announce any stops there, although her tour schedule continues to evolve by the...

    I can feel the schadenfreude welling inside me as I read that a group of Cherokee women are preparing to confront Elizabeth Warren as she sets forth on a national book tour to publicize her new book.  Sen. Warren matters a lot more than most freshman senators because she must be considered a near-frontrunner for the Democratic 2016 nomination if Hillary Clinton decides that playing with her forthcoming grandchild is better way to occupy her time than going through the meat grinder as a candidate. In Elizabeth Warren’s new book, A Fighting Chance, Warren claims to be “hurt and angry”...

    SAN ANTONIO — One of the great upsides to a national book tour is the chance to break out of television's cocoon and interact directly with the American people. Don't get me wrong; I love what I do at Fox News. My "beat" is keeping company with soldiers, sailors, airmen, guardsmen, Marines, special operators and others who protect us from harm. Though I live with these American heroes for weeks at a time overseas, I rarely have the opportunity to look their loved ones in the eye without visiting our wounded at a military hospital. A book tour completely alters...

    A Fox News anchor abruptly ended an interview when the guest criticized the news network. Jon Scott was interviewing Thomas Ricks about his book, "The Generals" when Ricks accused Fox News of hyping up the recent attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi. According to the AP, Scott questioned Ricks as to why he would make such a claim when the attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Christopher Stevens - the first U.S. Ambassador assassinated in more than three decades. Ricks asserted the incident amounted to a "small firefight" and said, "I think that the emphasis on...
