    SAN FRANCISCO — In this midterm election season, it may not be good to be a Democrat — but it is very good to be Hillary Rodham Clinton. The presumptive Democratic front-runner for 2016 is among her party’s best assets to raise money and energize voters amid a gloomy election landscape for Democrats this fall, and she is campaigning hard even on behalf of apparent lost causes. As a pair of events this week in California illustrated, Clinton’s efforts to raise money and get out the vote for Democratic congressional and gubernatorial candidates often dovetail with her own political agenda....

    OWENSBORO — Former President Bill Clinton made his third lap around the track in Kentucky’s neck-and-neck U.S. Senate race, imploring a throng of supporters Tuesday to help push Democratic candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes first across the finish line in two weeks. Minutes after Grimes called herself a “Kentucky filly,” the 42nd U.S. president offered his own equine analogy. Every election cycle, Clinton said, “I feel like an old racehorse.” “They got me in a nice barn, and when it’s election season, they come in, they give me an extra bale of hay,” he said, drawing laughter from the crowd of...

    Shameless. There's no other word to describe Monica Lewinsky. Sixteen years after her affair with President Bill Clinton became public knowledge, she's returned to the limelight with a campaign against cyberbullying -- of which she claims to have been "patient zero." Ignore the fact that she was patently not the primary victim in the Zippergate affair (poor Hillary Clinton was) or that any comparison with someone suffering a disease, especially at a time when people are dropping dead from Ebola, is tasteless in the extreme. What's most depressing is that when she rejoined the public stage, she said she was...

    When Monica Lewinsky reemerged in the May issue of Vanity Fair, many speculated that the timing of the infamous former White House internÂ’s return to the spotlight was relatively good news for Hillary Clinton. It suggested, some speculated, that LewinskyÂ’s determination to air the dirty laundry of the 1990s in early 2014 was good timing for Clinton, and that the issue would be fully litigated long before the 2016 campaign began in earnest. That assumption went out the window this month when Lewinsky joined Twitter and began to speak openly and without regret about the incident that made hers...

She has a sizable lead on Vice President Joe Biden (13 percent) and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (11 percent), according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.

But as candidates in both states are slipping, help from the party’s preeminent power couple is falling short. In Kentucky, Alison Lundergan Grimes has clung tightly to both Bill and Hillary Clinton as she tries to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell(R).

It's made to order for campaigns of deceit. Environmentalism allows practitioners to claim to have the best interests of everybody at heart. They want to save something -- in this case the planet -- and they want everybody to be...

    Dozens of former world leaders are expected to converge on Minneapolis in October 2015 for an international summit on climate change and democracy, organizers announced Monday. The conference, called “Minnesota 2015: Democracy for a Sustainable Future,” is designed to draw people from around the globe to explore ways that democratic nations can reduce greenhouse emissions. “It takes it beyond ‘here’s the challenge, here’s the problem,’ ” said Orlyn Kringstad, executive director of the U.S. branch of Partnership for Change, one of the cosponsors. “It’s [about] what needs to be done and how governments around the world can support those efforts.” The...

    Hero worship is mostly what shines through this missive from Hillary Clinton to Saul Alinsky, but as one person noted on Twitter, that may not be the biggest point of this story from the Free Beacon’s Alana Goodman. In July 1971, the future First Lady, Senator, Secretary of State, and presidential contender lived in the New Left hotbed of Berkeley, California, and was looking for inspiration. She reached out to the grandfather of “community organizing” to express her deep need for his upcoming Rules for Radicals in order to have more fodder for her to “throw at people” in...

    Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal left his wife Huma Abedin’s role with Hillary Clinton in doubt. But one year later, Abedin's position as Clinton’s personal chief of staff remains intact, as well as her marriage to Weiner. ... As Clinton’s personal chief of staff, Abedin was constantly at her boss’ side as Clinton toured the country promoting her memoir, “Hard Choices,” over the summer. And there she was again last weekend, standing just behind Clinton as the former First Lady worked the rope line at an Iowa steak fry, a visit widely seen as the first concrete public step by Clinton...

    Everywhere Hillary Clinton goes, a thousand cameras follow. Then she opens her mouth, and nothing happens. Clinton made a much-ballyhooed appearance in Iowa over the weekend, giving a speech widely noted for its substancelessness. She “had no explicit message of her own,” Politico noted, while The Economist pronounced it “underwhelming.” MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough was so frustrated by Clinton’s lack of verve that he went on an extended rant about it, proclaiming, “I know her and like her, but she puts on that political hat and she’s a robot!” The coverage of Clinton’s speech seemed to contain more meditation about how...
