Sixteen percent (16%) named Senator Edwards and 10% Senator Kerry.No other candidate reached double digits among Democrats or unaffiliated voters in the Rasmussen Reports survey. None of the three "Red State" candidates reached 5%. Those...

    Maybe I haven't visited enough presidential libraries. And, yes, I do know they all inevitably have something worshipful about them; it's in their nature. But I can't recall anything - anything! - so blatantly partisan, so full of just plain bullfeathers, so completely . . . Orwellian in its approach to the truth as one display at the newly opened Clinton Library here in Little Rock. You really need to see it to disbelieve it. [snip]But as every apparatchik knows, the real trick to disguising propaganda as history isn't what's said but what isn't. Some terms are clearly verboten in...

    Bill’s library is launching pad for Hillary By DICK MORRIS Syndicated Columnist Last week’s events in Little Rock had less to do with a library retrospective of the Bill Clinton years than a campaign launch for the prospective presidency of Hillary Clinton. Doubt it? Then why was it Hillary, not Bill, who appeared on all the talk shows? It’s his library. But it’s her candidacy. So she did all the softball TV interviews, not him — reminding voters of her availability for 2008 while seeming to talk about the ’90s. The timing is perfect: Democrats demoralized by John Kerry’s defeat...

    Some Hillary supporters say the former first lady may not make a bid for the White House after all. Though initial polls show Sen. Clinton as the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination in 2008, U.S. News & World Report says Hillary may not seek the job. Paul Bedard's "Washington Whispers" column in the latest edition of U.S. news reports that ". . . some friends and allies advise against placing bets that the former first lady will be the nation's 44th president." Citing these close friends to Hillary, the magazine says Hillary has made no commitment to running, and some...
  • CNN correspondent labeled Safire's smear of Hillary Clinton "journalism"

    Media Matters ^ | Nov 30, 2004 | N. C.
    On the November 29 edition of CNN's Wolf Blitzer Reports, CNN correspondent Mary Snow reported that New York Times columnist William Safire, who is retiring in January 2005, "is praised not just for his columns, but for his journalism." Citing a 1996 column as one of three examples of Safire's praiseworthy "journalism," Snow stated: "In the Clinton years, he once called Hillary Clinton a congenital liar for her role in the Whitewater scandal." But Safire's January 1996 column calling Hillary Clinton a "congenital liar" was just one example of the numerous false accusations Safire leveled against Bill and Hillary Clinton....

    Patti Solis Doyle. Recognize that name? Lady Shillary wants you to. It is the signature at the bottom of the first "Friends of Hillary" letter that is kicking off the Senator's appeal for campaign funds by asking donors to "fight back" against what it is calling the "new flood" of anti-Hillary rhetoric coming from conservative groups. Doyle says in the Shillary appeal letter, "We have to have funds on hand even before the campaign begins so that we can respond right away." And Doyle also paints the Senator as the "sacrifical servant" of the democratic party because she had...

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 4 - In a race for the presidency, Hillary Rodham Clinton faces a problem that has dogged her since her days as first lady: an entrenched bloc of voters who simply do not like her. And her experience as a senator in New York shows that despite vigorous campaigning around the state since taking office, she remains an extremely polarizing figure who is unable to sway these voters to her side. One poll after another shows that roughly one of three New Yorkers has an unfavorable opinion of Mrs. Clinton, a statistic that has not changed since she...

    Sen. Clinton strikes out The day before former President Clinton's library was dedicated in Little Rock, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Democrats' front-runner for the party's 2008 presidential nomination, gave Fox News Channel's Greta Van Susteren her first sit-down interview since her party got pummeled in the last election. If Mrs. Clinton aspires to become president, it would be helpful for her to get her facts straight. The junior senator from New York could begin by settling upon a consistent explanation for what happened to her party on Nov. 2. From one moment to the next in the interview, Mrs....

Let's pay some attention to Hillary Clinton, just for fun. I wrote a book about her more than four years ago.

    ...Even though the Democrats will probably nominate two of the most controversial people in American politics, Hillary Clinton for senator and Attorney General Eliot Spitzer for governor, they will probably face no serious challenge. Hillary and Spitzer got lucky. The two Republicans who might have given them fits — Rudy Giuliani and George Pataki — both have their eyes on the presidency and neither wants to go through a bruising, no-win battle in New York two years before making the big play for the White House. Pataki knows he is living on borrowed time. When 500,000 whites left New York...

    (Paragraphs created for clarity) Even if the latest allegations about Marc Rich--that he helped broker Saddam's oil-for-food deals--prove accurate, that won't be the main reason Clinton's pardon of the fugitive financier was scandalous. Saddam could presumably always get someone to broker his lucrative schemes--if not Rich, then another high-level operater. The Marc Rich pardon was scandalous mainly because it taught a generation of young Americans that you could buy your way out of punishment. ... But buy with what? ... Here's an instance where the convenient case for public figure privacy in matters of sex--made most conveniently by Clinton himself,...

    A one-time top aide to the architect of the Republican Revolution is praising New York Sen. Hillary Clinton for her tough stance on immigration reform, saying that if the GOP fails to take action on the issue it could make Clinton president of the United States. "I never thought I would write the following words, but: God bless Hillary Clinton," said Tony Blankley, one-time chief of staff to former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. "Though her motives are cynical, their effects may well be vital both to our national security and to our sovereign responsibility to control our borders,"...

    U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton has been awarded the "German Media Prize" of 2004, the organizers said Friday. The prize is awarded to leftwing political figures. The 57-year-old former US first lady wins the prize for her efforts to strengthen the role of women in politics, society and media, said the press release of German market research firm MediaControl. The same prize was also awarded to her husband, former US President Bill Clinton, in 1999. Mrs. Clinton will come to Baden-Baden, in southern Germany, to receive the prize on February 13, 2005. The German Media Prize is established by Media Control...

    WASHINGTON - Many people want to see Sen. Hillary Clinton take on Rudy Giuliani in the 2008 presidential race, a new national poll shows. A new Quinnipiac University poll found 57% of voters like Clinton (D-N.Y.) and only 4% express anger toward her, though she is widely considered one of the most polarizing politicians in the country. In a hypothetical matchup, Giuliani and Clinton are neck and neck: 45% to 43%. "I don't think it's going to happen, but both Democrats and Republicans think a Rudy-Hillary race would be a lot of fun," said Maurice Carroll, Director of the Quinnipiac...

Hillary Clinton as the Democratic Party's star presidential candidate in 2008, saying that women in America would turn out in droves to vote her back into the White House. In quotes first reported by California's Santa Monica Mirror, Moore told Democrats gathered last week at a Pacific Palisades home, "Hillary is a star. She walks into a room and it lights up." Story Continues Below Saying his party needed to nominate "a candidate people want to watch," Moore contended that Clinton would be hugely popular with female voters, especially single-moms....
