  • 10 striking revelations from Ed Klein’s new book ‘Blood Feud’

    07/07/2014 8:30:20 AM PDT · by Beave Meister · 24 replies
    The Blaze ^ | 6/25/2014 | Benjamin Weingarten
    Ed Klein’s new book, “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas” has been making waves for its many salacious details — for example Klein’s assertion that there is a deep rift between Michelle Obama and the president such that they slept in separate bedrooms at Martha’s Vineyard (and continue to do so in the White House). However, the broader purpose of the book is to show that there is a heated battle going on — dating back to the brutal primary contest between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential election cycle — that continues to manifest itself...
  • Elizabeth Dole: Hillary Clinton 2016 ‘Front-Runner’ (RINO's picking their candidate)

    Politico ^ | 6/20/13 9:56 AM EDT | By KATIE GLUECK
    Former Sen. Elizabeth Dole, who briefly ran for president herself, on Thursday called Hillary Clinton a “front-runner.” “I have to say as far as Hillary is concerned, you know … we can recognize that we’re past the point of a woman being accepted as president because she almost made it last time, and also just to think she could be a front-runner — a few years ago, that wouldn’t have been something that would have been conceivable,” Dole, a former Republican senator from North Carolina, said on “CBS This Morning.” “But she is the front-runner. Of course, it’s a very...

    It remains unclear whether President Barack Obama's lies about attacks on U.S. embassies will cost him re-election. One thing is certain, however: whatever ambitions Secretary of State Hillary Clinton once held to run for president in 2016 have been damaged beyond repair. Obama was literally asleep when the proverbial "3 a.m. call" came, but Clinton--who bears responsibility for embassy security--was asleep on the job for weeks. Clinton's response--"How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?--bears the same naďveté for which she once mocked her Democratic rival in debates and campaign...

    US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday night rejected Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's demand that Israel freeze all settlement activity as a precondition to negotiations. Stopping construction in the settlements "has never been a precondition, it has always been an in issue within the negotiations," Clinton said at a joint press conference with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem. In a strong show of support for Israel, she said she approved of Netanyahu's decision to issue a moratorium on new construction permits. "What the prime minister has offered... a restraint on the policy of settlements, which he...

    Hillary Clinton, once a front-runner herself, warned Barack Obama's supporters Sunday that, though he leads John McCain in the homestretch of the presidential campaign, it's not over. "Sure, the polls show Barack and Joe [Biden] ahead now, and that's good news," said Clinton during her first joint appearance with her husband, former President Bill Clinton, to tout the Obama ticket. "But I don't pay much attention to polls - nobody should be lulled into any false sense of security."

    Hillary Clinton took center stage at the Democratic National Convention last night to endorse Barack Obama for President and urge her supporters to follow suit. Clinton's prime time appearance on the second day of the Denver convention was a part of a marked tone change from a soft set of opening day speakers to stronger direct attacks on GOP rival John McCain. But Clinton's key task of the night was to convince those of her supporters who are still reluctant to support Obama to get behind him for the strength of the Democratic Party.

    Days after denouncing fellow Republicans for producing a television advertisement linking Senator Obama to polarizing comments made by his former pastor, Senator McCain is softening his opposition to political use of the issue and is even stoking the story by publicly condemning newly published inflammatory remarks from the Reverend Jeremiah Wright Jr. Speaking at a news conference in Coral Gables, Fla., the presumptive Republican nominee for president linked his new view to Mr. Obama's statement in a television interview that it was "legitimate" for his opponents to seize on Rev. Wright's sermons. "I was interested that this morning Senator Obama...

    The Clinton campaign, which is losing the pledged delegate race, is now talking up a different metric: the cumulative popular vote. "I'm very proud that as of today, I have received more votes by the people who have voted than anyone else," Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday, a day after she won the Pennsylvania primary by more than 200,000 votes. Her characterization is true only in a highly technical way: If you count the votes she received in Michigan (where hers was the only name on the ballot) and Florida (where an outlaw primary was held in January), and if...

I was also reading angry letters about my post on the ABC debate and recovering from three college visits in a week with my daughter. I share that TMI because the context was important.

    Hillary won just enough to show that it is ludicrous to oust a 10-point winner at this late junction, but not quite the blow-out that might cause a stampede to her in the next few states. The Democrats are tottering at the edge of the abyss. They are about to nominate someone who cannot win, despite vastly out-spending his opponent, any of the key large states — CA, NJ, NY, OH, PENN, TX, etc. — that will determine the fall election. And yet not to nominate him will cause the sort of implosion they saw in 1968 or the sort...

    My wife Barbara has begun yelling at the television set every time she hears Hillary Clinton.

For Barbara, Hillary has become the screech on the blackboard. From First Lady to Lady Macbeth.It's getting to me as well.

    Unable once again to score a knockout, Sen. Barack Obama is likely to make his new negative tone even more negative -- with a sharp eye on trying to end the Democratic presidential nomination fight after the May 6 primaries in Indiana and North Carolina. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's victory yesterday in Pennsylvania has only accentuated the quandary that Obama faces: Stay negative and he risks undermining the premise of his candidacy. Stay aloof and he underscores Clinton's argument that he will not be able to beat a "Republican attack machine" sure to greet him this summer. Obama campaign manager...

    Pay no attention to that woman behind the curtain. Be afraid. Be very afraid, for if you don’t obey the Great and Powerful Oz will turn her wrath on you. Yawn. Hillary Clinton’s favorite girlhood movie was the “Wizard of Oz.” But now, as the primaries clank along, her subjects are refusing to wear the green-tinted glasses and buy her act. She’s less and less terrifying every day, and fewer of those closest to her -- her Senate colleagues -- are intimidated. Despite their best efforts, the Clintons' powers seem to have gone on the fritz, and those Democrats who...

    Are Sen.

That's the question Inside the Beltway put to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) yesterday, which does not rule out the possibility. First, some background supplied by the FEC: The goal of the 1966 Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) was to "minimize foreign intervention" in U.S. elections by establishing a series of limitations on foreign nationals. In 1974, the prohibition was incorporated...

    WASHINGTON - Liberals are antsy. They haven't seen Democratic voter enthusiasm like this in a long time and they'd rather not wait until the party's August convention to harness it to the party's presidential nominee. Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama are still fiercely competing just when liberal activists and labor leaders wanted to mobilize voters and gear up their message for the general election. Activists who gathered at a Washington hotel this week said Obama and Clinton have energized the electorate with their prolonged contest, but several warned that a convention fight could be fractious and leave little...

    Forty-seven percent. That is the hurdle that has stood in front of Hillary Clinton since the day she announced her intention to run for president. Forty-seven percent is the portion of Americans who have a negative opinion of Clinton, and getting them to change their minds is extremely difficult. Not that she hasn't tried. Her campaign began with an effort to "reintroduce herself to the American people," and her claims that she was the most famous person Americans didn't know. How did that work out? Overcoming that 47 percent is not an insurmountable task. George W. Bush won both his...

The 46-year-old Mr Obama is just too green about the gills for the highest office in the land, Mr Young argued, and lacks a network of political allies that could sustain him in times of trouble. “To put a brother in there by himself is to set him up for crucifixion,” he said.

    Looking past the presidential nomination, Democratic leaders quietly fear that Sen. Hillary Clinton at the top of their 2008 ticket could hurt candidates at the bottom. They say the former First Lady may be too polarizing for much of the country. In more than 40 interviews, Democratic candidates, consultants and party chairmen form every region pointed to internal polls that give Clinton strikingly high unfavorable ratings in places with key congressional and state races.
