    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...

    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...

    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...

Those attacks will become a little harder to make now. New television ads airing this week show Bowles, a former White House chief of staff, with his old boss. The half-minute ads tout Bowles' part in the federal response to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. They include images of bloodied victims and the bombed shell of the federal building, where 168 people died. Both ads include a photo of Bowles sitting across a table from Clinton on Air...

    Bill Clinton's political legacy, at least for this election year, lies in the hands of his former staff. No fewer than six high-ranking officials from the Clinton administration are now candidates for office themselves. Four former cabinet secretaries are running for governor in various states, while two former White House advisers are hoping to be elected to Congress. All will face the challenge of explaining the actions of their former boss, but they have more in common than that. Five of the six have never sought office (former Energy Secretary Bill Richardson, running for governor of New Mexico, was once...

    WASHINGTON – Former Arkansas Gov. Jim Guy Tucker, a Democrat ally of Bill Clinton, was suspended Monday from the Supreme Court Bar and told he had 40 days to show why he should not be disbarred. Tucker succeeded Clinton as governor of Arkansas but was forced to resign after convictions in the Whitewater investigation. Clinton gave up his Arkansas law license for five years as part of a deal with Whitewater independent counsel Robert Ray in exchange for Ray's dropping the investigation into the president's perjury and liaison with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Clinton was disbarred from the ...

    Think back to 1992. George Bush (our 41st president) suffered a crushing defeat in his reelection battle against Bill Clinton. Bush received fewer votes percentage-wise than any Republican since Gov. Alf Landon of Kansas who had the misfortune of being nominated to run against FDR in the middle of the Depression. In l978, Gov. Landon's daughter, Nancy Kassebaum, was elected to the United States Senate. It took him over 40 years to get vindication.But getting back to 1992, George Bush, crushed as he was looked to 1994 for vindication. That year two of his sons ran for Governor. George ...

    <p>Precisely when did Howell Raines — the newly appointed, reputedly hard-charging executive editor of the New York Times — turn the newspaper's front page over to the PR department at Citigroup? Hard to say, but the love affair seems to be real. One recent story in the New York Times began with the observation that Mr. Rubin, a former treasury secretary in the Clinton administration, "has not abandoned his role as globe-traveling statesman." Get it? Statesman. Having established the diplomatic bona fides of Mr. Rubin, who now collects $800,000 per week as chairman of Citigroup's executive committee, the Times then ever-so-gingerly broached the understandably touchy subject of the tactics deployed by Mr. Rubin late last year in a telephone call to the highest-ranking Democrat in the Bush administration's Treasury Department.</p>

    If you think there happens to be an enormous number of unusual decisions coming down from US District Courts, upon the Bush/Cheney Administration...you are on the right track. Take Judge Kessler for openers. Here is a woman who recently demanded that the Bush Administration turn over names of individuals involved in energy task force meetings. But before you think she is "honorable", consider this. She also recently ruled that the AFL-CIO and the DNC do not have to release 36,000 pages of testimony showing collusion between both the Democrats and the Big Unions. That ruling is forcing the FEC ...

    Alumni candidates see him as neither asset nor liability SANTA FE -- Bill Richardson didn't so much walk into the county Democratic convention here as he lumbered. Shoulders hunched forward, he was a rumpled figure in jeans, a blue blazer, white shirt, red tie askew and black loafers. He knew everyone, or at least made them think he did, wrapping his large arms around the men's shoulders, kissing the women, making them all feel they were the only ones in the crowded room. He delivered a brief speech with almost surgical precision, reaching out to important Democratic constituencies--teachers, environmentalists, seniors, ...

    WASHINGTON — Can former Clinton cabinet members and White House aides who tasted fame and power in Washington find happiness in humdrum lives back home? If not, is a Clinton connection a political plus or the mark of Cain? That's what hungry Clinton alumni are about to find out. In their ability to win nomination in Democratic primaries lies a potential rise in the political clout of the Comeback Kid. This week President Bush traveled to North Carolina for a million-dollar fund-raiser to boost the prospects of Elizabeth Dole, who has the best chance of holding the Republican seat of ...

    CHICAGO- The White House office is history, as are the breakfasts with the president and the Oval Office strategy sessions. Rahm Emanuel, once a tenacious top adviser to President Clinton, now spends his days visiting bowling alleys and bingo halls. Rather than arm-twisting lawmakers in Washington, Emanuel shakes hands with morning commuters at elevated train stations. The frenetic 42-year-old is on the campaign trail, hoping to return to Washington as a congressman. The setting has changed, but the man who won the nickname "Rahmbo" in Washington and once mailed a rotten fish to a pollster who crossed him says ...

    Feb 24, 2002 (United Press International via COMTEX) -- Under the byline of "Anonymous', Joe Klein will forever be linked to the Clinton Presidency as the author of the best selling novel 'Primary Colors." A thinly veiled fictional account of a charmingly roguish Southern Presidential candidate, the book brilliantly conveyed the chaotic and self-regarding energy of the Clinton personality and campaign. Now with 'The Natural; the misunderstood Presidency of Bill Clinton', (Doubleday, 230pp, $22.95), Klein tries to disentangle the reality from all the other assorted fictions that have accumulated around the most successful Democratic politician since Franklin D. Roosevelt. ...
