    Arguably America’s most prominent American political consultant, Dick Morris tells NewsMax that President Bush’s key national address on immigration reform Monday night was "a great speech.” "It included all the elements it had to,” said Morris, who noted the president is living through record low approval ratings. But Morris conjectures Bush’s border plan may help lay the ground work for a comeback. Morris is almost universally credited with piloting Bill Clinton’s stunning comeback re-election victory in 1996 after the Democrats lost Congress to the Republicans two years before. The presidential plan to beef up the southern border fence in both...

    The most recent poll by USA Today clearly marks the end of the era of international focus and energy triggered by the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. Now, forgetting the lessons of that day, Americans are again turning inward and rejecting involvement with the rest of the world. To most politicians, pundits and journalists inside the Beltway, American voters can move to the left or the right on foreign-policy questions. But the voters themselves perceive a third option: to step backward.Isolationism, a largely ignored theme in our politics, is growing rapidly in the wake of the sacrifices we are making...

    Suddenly, thankfully, it does not seem that Hillary Clinton is on an automatic trajectory to become the next Democratic nominee for president. Two recent polls suggest problems that may loom in her path. From New York state comes the latest John Zogby poll, forecasting a race for the Senate instead of a cakewalk. For the first time since GOP wannabe Jeanine Pirro dropped out of the race, polls indicate that New Yorkers hare having second thoughts about re-electing Hillary. While the former first lady was leading her main opponent, John Spencer, 61-31 in Zogby’s Jan. 13 poll, her lead is...

    Dick Morris: Clinton on Dubai Payroll Former President Bill Clinton is up to his eyeballs in dealings with Dubai, his former top political adviser has revealed. According to Dick Morris, author of the best-selling book, "Condi vs, Hillary," Clinton is a paid agent of the crown prince of Dubai, now involved in a firestorm over its deal to take over some of the operations at six major U.S. ports. "Bill Clinton is a senior adviser - a paid adviser - to a company called Ukepa which recently set up a relationship with a group called the Yucaipa Investment group to...

    Sources close to New York civil rights leader Rev Al Sharpton tell me that Hillary used his annual Martin Luther King Day forum to liken the House Republican majority's conduct of the House of Representatives to a "plantation" because she fears a Sharpton challenge in the 2008 Democratic Presidential Primary. Hillary also fears that if Sharpton were to challenge her, it could weaken her in a possible contest against Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in the fall, if Rice were to be the GOP nominee. "She is afraid of Condi," one of Sharpton's key people said. "She did not attend...

    From The NEW YORK POST: THE BAGEL CANDIDACY By DICK MORRIS July 30, 2004 -- I LOVED Bill Clinton's speech. I was inspired by John Edwards. Barack Obama thrilled me. Max Cleland made me grow as a person as I heard him . . . And then there was John Kerry. All around him was eloquence but, in the center of the bagel, there was a speech that was a letdown. And did he just tell 140,000 men and women fighting in Iraq that they are there because of a mistake? By insisting that we are in Iraq because we...

    THE CENTRAL question facing the John Kerry campaign is whether to tilt left or go down the middle this week at the Democratic national convention in Boston. While American political conventions do not make any important decisions — everything is arranged in advance — they amount to a four-day opportunity to showcase the party programme on prime-time television. Even though the broadcast networks constantly cut back on their coverage of the conventions, cable news channels more than pick up the slack. In 2000 half of all American voters watched more than four hours of convention coverage and a quarter, the...

    VIRTUALLY every poll shows a dead heat between President Bush and Sen. John Kerry; the tie has persisted ever since early May, when Iraq let the Democrat back into the race. Some polls suggest Bush has recovered in the past month; others, that he's still slipping. Either way, the two campaigns are locked in mortal combat and each has to be looking for a way to break the tie. Yet beneath it all lies a deep consensus that spans the parties and both genders. Voters overwhelmingly believe that Bush would be the better president to wage the War on Terror....

    In his new book "Rewriting History," longtime aide to Bill and Hillary Clinton, Dick Morris reveals that he's guarded a secret about the Whitewater scandal for nearly a decade that could have led to Clinton's removal from office. "What I was not talking about and have not for eight years is an incident that took place in 1996," he told Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes" on Tuesday. Morris alleged that Clinton improperly influenced U.S. District Court Judge Henry Woods to dismiss Whitewater charges against then-Arkansas Gov. Jim Guy Tucker, who had threatened to go public about Hillary's involvement in...

    It's unlikely she'll ever be president unless she's on the ticket in 2004 DICK MORRIS Cagle If Sen. John Kerry beats President Bush and Sen. Hillary Clinton is not on the Democratic ticket as a vice presidential candidate, she will probably never be president of the United States. This cold, hard fact is staring the Clintons in the face as they assess the best way to inaugurate a new Clinton presidency. Consider the options and their historic contexts: If Kerry wins in 2004, he will very likely seek re-election. The last time a president served four years and didn't try...

    Former Clinton White House political guru Dick Morris is urging his Bush administration counterpart Karl Rove to go negative on presidential rival John Kerry hard and fast. "Bush needs to come out of the box with negative commercial after negative commercial," he told Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes" Tuesday night, after Kerry's nine state sweep locked up the nomination. "I ran with Bill Clinton 14 months of $40 million in advertising," Morris recalled. "Bush is gonna run five months of $150 million of advertising. And in eight weeks, John Kerry is going to be a distant shadow of...

    Al Rantel and Larry Elder are on KABC with Dick Morris. Dick said that the DemocRATS slit their throats tonight. Kerry was not vetted. He will be seen as a Dukakis liberal. Bush will spend 150 million dollars in ads up to convention time. It is too late. Kerry will have the delegates and cannot be un-nominated. Kerry looked like a reasonable candidate after Howard Dean. When his record is exposed, he will be in deep trouble. Bush must not be nice --- he must use negative ads, go after him, and define him. Possible for Hillary to take VP...

    Karl Rove must be crying That which the Democratic Party bosses — and Bill and Hillary Clinton — could not control, they chose to kill. Despite summoning a cyber-roots enthusiasm unequalled in decades, former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean committed the unpardonable sin of failing to kowtow to the leaders of his party. He paid for it with a third place finish in Iowa. The months of daily pounding, animated by diligent negative research by minions of Terry McAuliffe and the Clintons and disseminated into the national political bloodstream by the likes of Chris Lehane, proved effective. Dean, subjected to a...

    Why does the opposition party tend to become dominated by its own extremists when it is out of power? Why did the Democrats follow liberal leaders like Walter Mondale and Mike Dukakis while Ronald Reagan was president? Why did the right under Newt Gingrich take over the Republican Party during the Clinton years? Why is Howard Dean dominating the Democrats these days? Call it the ricochet effect. In the Clinton White House, we consciously used this theory to help the right dominate the Republican Party so that the centrists throughout America would vote to re-elect the Democratic president. Here's how...

    <p>GEORGE W. Bush's job approval ratings are dropping a point every other week. Most polls now have his support down in the high or mid-50s. Pollster John Zogby has them at 53 percent - a huge drop from the low 70s he was registering just two months ago. The lower Bush drops, the more likely it is that Hillary Clinton runs for president in 2004. She and her husband cannot permit a Democrat not named Clinton to beat Bush in '04. If one does, she can't run in '08 against an incumbent Democratic president. She'd have to wait until 2012, by which time she would be 65 and out of the White House for 12 years. The weaker Bush gets, the more likely a Hillary Clinton candidacy becomes.</p>

    The decision by Bill and Hillary Clinton to keep a high profile going into next year's presidential campaign amounts to a "conscious effort" by the former first couple to make sure that no Democrat wins the White House in 2004. That's the stunning assessment from political strategist Dick Morris, who said Thursday that the Clintons actually want to see Bush re-elected so he can retire just when Mrs. Clinton is ready to run for the White House herself in 2008. "There is a conscious effort going on by the Clintons to distract attention from the current field of candidates,"...
