    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    We have just returned to Budge's house to do the FReep report because there is a lot of information to report. In attendance were Budge, Travelgirl, The Battman, parsifal, Don Frivoinai, sweetliberty, and another FReeper who, for reasons you will come to understand shortly, needs to remain anonymous until after the election. We arrived at Budge's around noon to get everything set up for the maiden FReep of the Arkansas Hog Wild FReepers and the FReepmobile. We got to the site around quarter after 1 and finished up some signs and headed over to the convention center to await the...

    Telling a New Yorker he's made a mistake is definitely a job for a volunteer, but as it is the place I was born and raised, I feel an obligation to tell the good folks that live there too a few things about the albatross they've hung around their collective neck. As much as any state in the Union, New York is populated by overachievers and pragmatists, not susceptible to the spiel of political con artists who show up periodically and try to pound sunshine up their asses. Suddenly they've decided to shoot crap with their state's future. The grim...

Chapter of Free Republic invites all FReepers and lurkers in good standing, as well as their friends and families, to join us in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, October 26, 2002 for the Patriots Rally for America II. As the United States prepares to take the next step in the war on terrorism, we will be gathering to show support for our troops, America and to serve as a patriotic counter-point to the anti-American leftists who will be holding an "anti-war" rally and march the same day in D.C. The "anti-war" rally, organized by International ANSWER, will be...

    DUNDEE - New Yorkers getting acquainted with New Yorkers. That's the purpose of a one-day tour of the Finger Lakes wine region, which will be hosted by Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and the New York State Wine & Grape Foundation Tuesday. The event is meant to spotlight New York state's world-class food and wine. "We're very excited and appreciative that Senator Clinton has really taken New York agriculture on, including New York wine and grapes, as a cause," said Jim Trezise, president of the New York State Wine & Grape Foundation. "She believes in the agriculture industry and in our...

    <p>From his taxpayer-funded exile in Harlem, William "The Zipper" Clinton lives the good life of a deposed monarch. His wife has been installed in the U.S. Senate. His bagman, Terry McAuliffe, runs the Democratic National Committee. And publishers proffer millions for his memoirs chronicling conquests over a multitude of maidens. Hollywood starlets and interns still coo his name. When not vowing to "fight and die" for Israel (something he wouldn't do for America), he hints at playing the Apollo. Meanwhile, the party he left behind must deal with his "no rules" legacy.</p>

    ZURICH, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Credit Suisse (CSGZn.VX) insisted on Friday it was adequately capitalised, hoping to quash fears it might need to raise fresh capital which sent its ailing shares down over 15 percent to their lowest in over nine years. "Due to the drop in its share price yesterday and today, Credit Suisse Group wishes to announce that it is not aware of any objective reasons prompting this development," Switzerland's second-largest financial conglomerate said in a brief statement. "The group's present capital resources remain adequate, and as stated before, no capital increase of the group is planned," it...

    Wall Street powerhouse Goldman Sachs gave officers or directors of 21 favored investment banking clients access to lucrative initial public offerings it managed, said a congressional committee on Wednesday in a scathing report Goldman slammed as "rubbish." The so-called "spinning" of IPOs by Goldman occurred from 1996 to 2000 and allowed numerous high-profile corporate executives to reap hefty profits from new, red-hot, mostly technology and telecommunication issues, said the report from the House of Representatives Financial Services Committee. Among those who received the IPO share access from Goldman were former Enron Corp. Chairman Kenneth Lay and former Tyco International chief...

    The United States may have no streams left that are free from chemical contamination, and about one-fifth of animal species and one-sixth of plant types are at risk of extinction, says a private report on the nation's ecosystems. The findings are in an ambitious study commissioned five years ago by former President Clinton and released Tuesday by the H. John Heinz III Center for Science, Economics and the Environment. The report tries to document in one place the sort of statistics about natural resources that until now were dispersed among several federal agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency and Interior...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Bill Clinton's political offspring are taking a beating at the ballot box this year, with Janet Reno in Florida and Robert Reich in Massachusetts the latest high-profile losers in bids for elected office. Reno, the former attorney general, conceded defeat to political newcomer Bill McBride in the race for Florida's Democratic gubernatorial nomination on Tuesday, just hours before Reich, the former labor secretary, finished behind state Treasurer Shannon O'Brien in the Democratic primary for governor in Massachusetts. The two joined former Housing Secretary Andrew Cuomo, who pulled out of the New York governor's race before anyone even...
