The 31 year-old CEO of the nonprofit Global Health Corps said she wants to see a Clinton run in 2016 in the upcoming Aug. 26 issue of People Magazine. During an interview that focused primarily on her volunteer work, Barbara Bush called Clinton "unbelievably accomplished." But a Clinton vote by the Bush twin, herself unaffiliated politically, is not guaranteed. "I don't know who she'd be running against," said the daughter of the Republican president.

    Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell, the minister who presided over the recent marriage of President Bush’s daughter Jenna, has launched a pro-Barack Obama Web site sharply critical of conservative stalwart James Dobson. Caldwell, leader of the largest Methodist congregation in the country, launched his “James Dobson Does Not Speak For Me” site a day after Dobson’s Focus on the Family radio program aired a statement charging that Obama distorted the Bible to fit “his own confused theology.” The site urges readers to sign a statement declaring that Dobson does not represent them.

    A recent article on OneNewsNow featured comments by Methodist pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell, a Barack Obama supporter. The pastor took issue with James Dobson's contention that Obama distorts the Bible with his theological views. Caldwell, who is affiliated with the website, initially told OneNewsNow that the website was operated by Matthew 25, a political action committee working with Obama supporters. However, upon investigation, it was found that the site was actually registered to Alyssa Martin, an intern in the Obama campaign's "religious affairs" department. The domain registration has since been changed to Pastor Caldwell's name. In an earlier interview, Caldwell...

    PRESIDENTIAL NEWS OF THE DAY: The President, First Lady Laura Bush, and their daughter Jenna spent this weekend at the family's ranch, where a heavy rainstorm closed the main road into Crawford, Texas, today.

Harris County had been under a flash flood watch earlier today, but the National Weather Service cancelled the watch this afternoon.

    Dear America, It's Chelsea Clinton. Remember me? We got to know each other way back in the summer of 1991, when I was 11. Yep, that's right. I was the one with the ill-fitting velvet dress and the princess sleeves. Yeah, the one with all the bows. We've been through a lot, you and I, haven't we? So many seminal moments. You saw me go through my headband phase, I saw you go through NAFTA. I did complicated dances in ballet class, you did complicated dances in the Middle East. They let me into Stanford, you didn't let gays into...

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- In an interview in Washington, actor Matt Damon suggested that President George W. Bush's daughters "maybe" should join the military. Damon and actor Robert De Niro were guests on the MSNBC cable show, "Hardball with Chris Matthews," promoting their upcoming movie, "The Good Shepherd." Directed by De Niro, the film is an account of the early history of the CIA. During the interview, scheduled to air Monday, Damon talked about the fairness of fighting the war in Iraq with a volunteer Army. "I don't think that it's fair as I said before, that it seems...

    BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (Reuters) - The U.S. Embassy in Argentina rejected reports that it had told President George W. Bush's twin daughters to leave the country after a widely publicized purse-snatching incident. ABC News reported on its Web site on Monday that embassy officials had "strongly suggested" that the twins, Jenna and Barbara Bush, cut short their visit to Buenos Aires due to security concerns. Argentine officials confirmed last week that one of Bush's daughters had her purse stolen in San Telmo, a neighborhood popular with tourists. The incident led to teasing by Argentine media about the twins' seemingly ineffective...

    Amid a growing barrage of front-page headlines, U.S. embassy officials "strongly suggested" President Bush's twin daughters, Jenna and Barbara Bush, cut short their trip to Buenos Aires because of security issues, U.S. diplomatic and security sources tell ABC News. But the girls have stayed on, celebrating their 25th birthday over the weekend and producing even more headlines about their activities. Officials say the media coverage upstaged publicity plans for the new U.S. Ambassador Anthony Wayne, who had only recently arrived in the country. Neither the White House nor the U.S. embassy in Buenos Aires responded to requests for comment. The...

    Jenna Bush , the nation's most famous public-school teacher, is skipping the country and bidding a happy adios to the young-Washington social scene she once ruled. Uh-oh, what do we do now? Friends say that the blond, younger-by-minutes First Twin has been quietly making plans over recent months to leave D.C. for a teaching job in Latin America, most likely around the end of summer. The move reflects the growing seriousness of a 24-year-old whose collegiate partying provided endless fun for gossip columnists during her father's first years in office -- yet also offers an escape from the Washington spotlight...

    US President George W. Bush, who turns 60 on July 6, joked that six decades is "not that old" and blamed his gray hair on his twin daughters' teenage antics. "For you youngsters, I want to tell you something: When I was your age, I thought 60 was really old," he said during a speech on immigration. "It's all in your mind. It's not that old, it really isn't." Earlier, during a roundtable with immigrants to the United States, Bush joked with one father of two young children: "You think my hair is gray because I'm president? No, my hair...
