    On the surface, Joe Sestak seems like the perfect Democrat candidate. Sestak is giving Republican Representative Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania a tough fight for his seat in Congress. However, like most former Clinton administration officials, Sestak has much to hide and little to say about his work during the 1990s. Sestak is an ex-Navy admiral who served as Director of Defense Policy on the Clinton National Security Council from 1995 to 1997. Sestak often served in positions that required expertise in weapons and space technology. Sestak served in the G.W. Bush administration as Deputy Chief of Naval Operations Warfare Requirements...

    ALBANY, N.Y. - They were young and eager in the 1990s, these midlevel functionaries, hotshot lawyers and one Cabinet secretary in his father's shadow, all inspired by the same boss: President Clinton. Today, Clinton administration alumni are taking their turn in the political spotlight while their former leader cheers from the sidelines. "I am pleased and proud that so many of them have run or are running for office," the former president said in an e-mail to The Associated Press. "Their dedication and enthusiasm are part of the reason why we were able to accomplish as much good as we...
  • Clintonista's Indictment Kept Secret for a Year

    Though Hillary Clinton's former finance chairman David Rosen was actually indicted in 2003, the Bush administration kept it secret till the indictment was unsealed late Friday, a move that spared the former first couple and the Democratic Party significant embarrassment during the height of the 2004 presidential campaign. "The indictment was handed down more than a year ago," the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday. Citing "sources familiar with the probe," the Times said the Bush Justice Department decided that any criminal charges would not be made public until after last fall's presidential election for fear they would be seen as...

    SANFORD, Fla. - Eleven people directed to the wrong courtroom in the Seminole County Courthouse were arrested and jailed when they didn't appear before the proper judge, who was in an adjoining courtroom less than 100 feet away. The six men and five women spent eight hours Friday in a Seminole County Jail cell before everything was straightened out. "I'm hungry, I'm tired and I'm disgusted," said Frantarshia Coleman, after she was released from jail. "This is ridiculous. This is disgusting." Coleman, 33, of Orlando was in court on a ticket for not having her registration and proof of insurance....

    WASHINGTON (July 13) - The Democratic National Committee released on Tuesday its lineup of the big-name politicians speaking at the convention this month, and it included every major Democratic star except one. There were Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, near the top of the list. Al Gore was there, too, and so was Edward M. Kennedy. Even the wife of the Iowa governor made the cut. But Hillary Rodham Clinton, the junior senator from New York and one of the most prominent names in the party, was nowhere to be found. That caught the attention of many Democrats, who wondered...

    The Seattle Times ^ | 1/31/04 | Max Albert never-ending storyBy Max AlbertSpecial to The TimesIt seems some Democrats are these days blinded by fury, steering off the leftward cliff. "Gore Won in Florida!" bellows the Democratic National Committee's Terry McAuliffe; Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean wonders aloud if the president knew about 9-11 beforehand; and the mob clamors to burn (oil services provider) Halliburton at the stake for the unforgivable sin of charging for its services. Good grief, what ails these people? Never mind all the ballot reviews proving Gore would've lost whatever the decision of the courts to which he went running. Surely, they can't...

    In the bleak midwinter, Bill Clinton sits in the two-story garage out back, kneading memory into history. He scribbles his memoirs in longhand on legal pads, poring over notes and transcripts of his White House years. For the moment, this deadline is more pressing than raising money for India's earthquake victims or promoting peace in Northern Ireland or touring Miami nightclubs with Julio Iglesias. It is also lit by the incandescent question of the 2004 primary campaign: What does it mean to be a Democrat anymore? Having lost the White House and five straight House elections, does the party...

    Wesley Clark's Loose LipsSix quotes overheard in New Hampshire. By Chris Suellentrop Posted Monday, Jan. 12, 2004, at 5:47 PM PT Whether it's true or not, Gen. Wesley Clark's rise in the polls in New Hampshire is being partly attributed to some voters having "cold feet" about former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, especially Dean's penchant for making statements that are quickly seized upon by Fox News or the Republican Party as evidence of unpatriotic disloyalty. But Clark has the same propensity for speaking imprecisely off the cuff. Here are some statements I heard him make last week during my trip...

    DAVENPORT, Iowa -- Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean has a vision of where he'd like to take the nation. It turns out to be the 1960s. In campaign stop after campaign stop, in overheated high school gyms and smoky union halls, Dean repeatedly offers this misty-eyed homage to that turbulent decade: "When I was 21 years old," he says, "it was the end of the civil rights era, and America had paid an enormous price. Martin Luther King had been killed. Bobby Kennedy was dead. A lot of other people who are less well-known, including four little girls in a...

    Some of Democratic presidential front-runner Howard Dean's worst campaign gaffes have followed briefings by former Clinton administration officials who were sought out by the Vermont Democrat to tutor him on foreign policy. In August, Dean's campaign staff turned to former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who conducted a six-hour "private class" for the Vermont Democrat on Middle East issues, reported the Boston Globe in Sunday editions. A few weeks later, Dean caused an uproar by suggesting Israel and the Palestinians should be treated in an "evenhanded" way, the paper noted. After that blunder, President Clinton began personally advising the Vermont...

    Sometimes you can tell more about a person from what he does not say than from what he does. This certainly is true in the case of the pompous "100 Year Vision" statement put up by General Clark on his campaign website. A collection of neo-leftist, politically correct and poll-tested jargon, it tries to project Clark as something of a visionary. But while the carefully worded, consultant vetted rambling essay discusses things such as "American ecosystems", "bioethics", and "smoothing the business cycle", it leaves out the paramount concern of our time, the terror attack on the United States and the...

    Private Eye May Have Eavesdropped On DA, Police LOS ANGELES -- Federal agents are keeping District Attorney Steve Cooley in the dark about their wiretapping probe targeting former celebrity private eye Anthony Pellicano, it was reported Thursday. Pellicano, now imprisoned for illegally possessing explosives, may have eavesdropped on at least two deputy district attorneys, a Los Angeles police detective and an alleged rape victim, sources close to the wiretapping investigation told the Los Angeles Times. Cooley, who said he was not privy to details of the probe, said criminal investigations could have been compromised. "Such illegal wiretapping puts lives of...

    THE Year was 1979. The place was Arkansas, teeming with big hair bimbos, corrupt prison guards, and Brubaker. A young, rising liberal Governor was determined to remold the state in his image. But his eagerness to pursue his activist agenda would lead him to bite off more than he could chew, and imbibe in him a bitter political lesson. William Jefferson Blythe Clinton III angered state leaders when he increased automobile license plate fees and challenged powerful timber and utilities interests. His heavy-handed leadership style led to his biggest political defeat in 1980, when Arkansas voters did not reelect...

    WASHINGTON — The presidential election of 2000 was one of the low points of modern U.S. politics. But the upcoming 2004 nomination contests have the potential to be exciting. Either or both conventions could be electrifying affairs. Democrats may have the first multi-ballot convention since 1952, which could be a disaster or an unexpected opportunity. Republicans, who set their convention in New York City so President Bush could return to the scene of his apparent post-9/11 political triumph, might find Manhattan circa 2004 a much less friendly international stage. There may be more FBI agents and uniformed military people in...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq, Nov 28, 2003 (AP WorldStream via COMTEX) -- A day after U.S. President George W. Bush made a surprise trip to Baghdad, U.S. senators Hillary Rodham Clinton and Jack Reed flew in Friday, saying it isn't too late to bring the United Nations back to Iraq. The senators said the administration of Iraq - a huge expense - should be spread among a wider group of nations. "I'm a big believer that we ought to internationalize this, but it will take a big change in our administration's thinking," said Clinton, a Democrat from New York. "I don't see...
