    Hillary Rodham Clinton with City Council candidate Elana Waskal Posner -- Sam's daughter August 9, 2002 -- WASHINGTON - A day after disgraced ImClone chief Sam Waksal was indicted for insider trading, bank fraud and obstruction of justice, his favorite politician - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton - said she has no intention of returning the $27,000 he's given her. Clinton has been the biggest individual recipient by far of Waksal's campaign largesse. He pumped $20,000 into her soft-money committee for her 2000 Senate race, gave that campaign $2,000 directly, and donated another $5,000 to HILLPAC, her political-action committee, in...

    <p>There is nothing like politics to break up a good friendship. Politics, pollsters, and a fairly bitter book. So it should not be a surprise that Bill Clinton and Bob Reich don't talk much anymore.</p> <p>They had been good friends for about 30 years, since they were young men on the track to join the nation's ruling class. They sipped tea together in England, raided the fridge in the Arkansas governor's mansion, talked about jobs and families, and how they would change the country.</p>
  • Multimillionaire Clintons Make Good on Hush Money Pledge

    Bill and Hillary Clinton have finally made good on a 1996 pledge to pay off witnesses who stuck by them throughout the scandal investigations of the 1990's, according to financial disclosure forms released by Sen. Clinton's office on Friday. Beyond showing that the former first couple now has a multimillion dollar annual income with up to $30 million in the bank, the disclosure forms reveal that the Clintons paid in excess of $1.3 million in legal bills from an account separate from their legal defense fund, with a portion of that money going to former staffers. Ostensibly, the staffer...

    ABC 2004: The Invisible PrimaryBy Mark Halperin, Elizabeth Wilner & Marc Ambinder U P D A T E D May 29 — Since we last published our Invisible Primary Ratings in February, we've had a big cattle call, a fundraising disclosure deadline, and at some point along the way, a silent but unmistakable go-ahead for the Democratic field to frontally attack the wartime President they hope to replace. All six of the top-tier contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination, plus the upwardly mobile (ratings-wise) Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, have stepped up their criticisms of President Bush. Former Vice President...

    Friday May 10, 2002; 2:57 p.m. EDT Clinton Still Rejects Bush Election Victory Nearly a year and a half after President Bush won more electoral votes than Al Gore in the 2000 election, ex-president Bill Clinton still doesn't believe he was the legitimate victor. "There's a lot of people who know we won the popular vote last time," the top Democrat told National Public Radio's Tavis Smiley in an interview broadcast Friday. He then added, "A lot of us think we won in Florida last time - I'm one of them. I'm one of them." Clinton's ongoing skepticism about the...

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- About 100 students said at a protest Sunday that Harvard President Lawrence Summers is not doing enough to promote diversity and is responsible for professor Cornel West's departure to Princeton. "Right now, we want to give him a shot. We're not occupying buildings -- yet," said Fred Smith, political action chairman for the Black Students Association. "We want to engage in real dialogue. For that to happen, there needs to be reciprocation. He needs to listen." Some in Harvard's Afro-American studies department have been at odds with Summers, saying he did not make a strong statement in...

    Black studies scholar likens Harvard chief to Sharon   BOSTON, April 16 (Reuters) - Slamming Harvard president Lawrence Summers as "the Ariel Sharon" of American education, top black studies professor Cornel West said on Tuesday Summers' behavior had led him to quit Harvard for Princeton. The two academics have been publicly feuding for some time but Tuesday's comments by West took the dispute to a new level of acrimony. "Larry Summers strikes me as the Ariel Sharon of American higher education," West told the New York Times in a reference to the Israeli prime minister, demonized by his critics as a military bulldozer responsible for a...

The state has too many other problems, he maintained, for voters to worry about ancient political history, even if he played a prominent role in it.A former congressman, onetime...

    Powell Talks to Trilateral GroupBy VANESSA PALO Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON(AP) — Between celebrating his 65th birthday and embarking on a trip to the Middle East, Secretary of State Colin Powell found an hour Saturday to outline U.S. diplomatic policy at the annual meeting of The Trilateral Commission. Characterizing Powell's private remarks, a senior member of the commission said he gave a ``commanding sense of U.S. diplomacy and the importance of its diplomatic role.'' Delivering unprepared and off-the-record remarks, the secretary gave a review of the problems facing the Western world and discussed some details of the Mideast tour, the...

    The Office of Personnel Management is reviewing the shift of 17 Clinton-era political appointees to the career civil service, according to a new General Accounting Office report. While career civil servants are hired using merit system principles based on fair and open competition, political appointees serve at the pleasure of the agency head. Such appointees are responsible for supporting and advocating the current administration's political agenda. When the administration changes, incumbents in these jobs usually have to resign. The practice of political appointees converting to career jobs, or “burrowing in,” is not uncommon. However, competitive positions in agencies are occasionally...
