    [P]ublications including the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal have cited Clinton family confidantes saying that Bill Clinton may get a pass on much of the drudgery of ceremonial housekeeping—and that the responsibility for choosing cutlery and curtains may fall to the couple’s 36-year-old daughter, Chelsea Clinton. “People close to the Clintons said they could see Ms. Clinton, should her mother be elected, taking on some of the roles traditionally reserved for the first lady, such as organizing holiday parties and selecting menus for state dinners,” the Journal reports.

    If Hillary Clinton wins the presidency, Bill Clinton will not become a regular at cabinet meetings, his wife's advisers say. He will not be invited into the Situation Room. He will step away from his family's foundation work and may not even have an office in the West Wing, given the undesirable optics of a former president and husband looking over the shoulder of the first female commander in chief. But the steps Clinton aides are planning to shape his new life do little to address a potentially thornier problem: Historically, when Mr. Clinton does not have a job to...

    When Hillary Clinton was first lady, she did not have a security clearance, but she was "often provided" classified information, she told her longtime friend and ABC News host George Stephanopoulos in a long-forgotten Dec. 30, 2007 interview rediscovered by The Daily Caller. It was just weeks before the 2008 Iowa caucuses and Clinton was out touting her foreign policy experience, both as a senator from New York and as first lady. She wanted to be seen as the strong and experienced choice in contrast to upstart Barack Obama, then a senator from Illinois. But during the interview, video of...

'There is a social function to the first lady's role, and that will not go away,' C-SPAN co-CEO Susan Swain said. 'Diplomacy' is conducted through social settings, 'and it is important to have somebody in that role.'

With Hillary Clinton’s 30,000-plus emails still AWOL and scandal rather than charitable works erupting from the Clinton family’s billions-rich ‘charitable’ foundation, the big question from the Clinton presidential campaign team—at least according to the Washington Post—is: (drum roll) “What to do with Bill?” The fusillade of rude responses about where to stick Bill from the chattering classes should not be repeated in any family-read publication.

    Presidential politics first captured Heidi Nelson Cruz’s attention in the 1980s, when the 12-year-old read a Time magazine piece about the Ronald Reagan-Walter Mondale race while working at her San Luis Obispo bread stand. She would later become a Capitol Hill intern, a policy aide on the George W. Bush campaign and economic director for the Western Hemisphere with the National Security Council. But while government and politics might have been her calling at one time, nothing in her background could have prepared her for the summer of 2013, when her husband, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, helped force a shutdown...

Appearing for a segment on Jeopardy, the million-dollar question has now become: what happened to Michelle’s hair?

Looking like a female rendition of her husband’s hairdo in between dye jobs, Michelle seemed totally unaware of people not...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama used the power of her bully pulpit Wednesday to push food companies and television broadcasters to do more to promote healthier foods to children — and to do it faster. Research shows food marketing is a leading cause of childhood obesity because the ads and promotions lead impressionable kids to then pester their parents to eat what they saw on TV, consumer advocates say. The first lady cited a "cultural shift" taking place in America's eating habits, and highlighted as examples salad bars that are now in many school lunchrooms and kids' restaurant menus that...

    Can someone help me find the list of Michelle Obama's secretarial staff? I remember a post on FR that had all of her staff listed by name and pay and it was stunning. It would be useful to point out in the wake of the WH tour closing. If I remember correctly, Jackie Kennedy had 2 secretaries and Co-President Rodham Clinton had 6 - MO has more than a dozen, perhaps significantly more....

    Reports that the cost of entertainment at the White House have soared during President Obama’s term were called “unavoidable” by First Lady Michelle Obama. “Barack is no ordinary president,” Michelle contended. “He is a Nobel Prize winner. He is tremendously popular all over the world. Polls show that if everyone in the world could vote for the President of the United States he’d win with over 70% of the votes. So, naturally, it’s going to cost more.” The “rock star” status enjoyed by President Obama “boosts both the frequency and expense necessary to entertain visitors at the White House,” Michelle...
  • I Wonder if First Lady Indulgences, Air Force One Group Jaunts Have Done Michelle Proud(Yet or Ever)

    So, being informed of Michelle's speaking slot tonight at the DNC got me thinking what she might be saying about America after four years as First Lady. Would she be overwrought with Tourette's Syndrome trying to utter the word 'proud', 'proud' as in being 'proud' of the greatest copuntry in the world, 'proud' in the greatest country the world has ever known, or would it be more of the same as in "you white folks owe us big time"? Somehow I don't see how change in her abrasive, procupinesque attitude is going to be transformed, tonight or any other. Interesting...
