    German newspaper wonders if Hillary Clinton is America’s ‘last hope’ By Colby Itkowitz November 6 at 2:28 PM  You’d be hard pressed to find a postmortem on the 2014 midterms in America that didn’t include analysis of what it would mean for Hillary Clinton’s presidential chances in 2016. Some say her support for losing Democratic candidates hurts her brand. Others say the Republican-controlled Congress will give her something concrete to run against. But perhaps no paper anywhere so blatantly transitioned to 2016 coverage than the taz die tageszeitung (or “taz”), a leftwing daily newspaper in Berlin.

    A politically conservative Los Angeles street artist is papering a strip of Tinseltown this week with Oz-like flying monkeys bearing "Hillary 2016" signs, just ahead of a Hillary Clinton-headlined fundraiser, the Hollywood Reporter reports. SABO, the guerrilla tagger and online commentator behind "Abortion Barbie" and a twerking Nancy Pelosi, has festooned the Brentwood neighborhood around the posh Tavern restaurant with wall posters and hanging cutouts of the winged, pro-Hillary primates.

    DENVER — Team Clinton is doing damage control on a series of comments by Hillary Clinton about the former first couple’s wealth. Former President Bill Clinton on Tuesday defended his wife as “not out of touch,” and lashed out at the criticism during an appearance at the Clinton Global Initiative America conference. With Hillary and Chelsea Clinton looking on from the audience of a hotel ballroom, he explained that Hillary Clinton’s comment two weeks ago that the couple was “dead broke” when they left the White House was “factually true.” He also criticized reporters for not including context in stories...

    Hillary Clinton’s former law partner was slated for a gilded position within the first Clinton administration. But a cluster of felonies landed Webb Hubbell in jail, and frozen out of the inner circle. Now he’s a novelist, and—after a near-death experience—friends with Bill again. “I think Hillary would make a great president,” Webb Hubbell says. “I’d like to see her run. She’ll get elected. But that’s not my call. It’s not my business.” Nor is it clear that Hillary Clinton will welcome Hubbell’s endorsement. After all, he’s an ex-con—and she has kept a prudent distance for the past two decades....

Yet some of Mrs. Clinton's closest confidants and allies aren't sold on the idea that she should run. Their cautions add an unpredictable element as Mrs. Clinton weighs whether to seek the presidency again, a decision she says she plans to make later this year. One of Mrs. Clinton's top advisers and former aides, Cheryl Mills, believes she should stay out of the contest and has told her as much, according...

Biden becomes Secretary of State — a position he’s apparently coveted for years. And Hillary Clinton, Vice President. So the Democratic ticket for 2012 is Obama-Clinton. Why do I say this? Because Obama needs to stir the passions and enthusiasms of a Democratic base that’s been disillusioned with his cave-ins to regressive Republicans. Hillary Clinton on the ticket can do that. Moreover, the economy won’t be...

She has warned that Iran is becoming a military dictatorship. She is trying -- with some success -- to persuade U.S. allies to support stronger sanctions against Teheran. There’s no sign that the U.S. is about to invade Iran but there’s tons of speculation that the Pentagon has been tasked to figure out what bunker-buster bombs would do to Iran’s underground nuclear industry and whether such an attack would help or...

    Last week raised important questions about whether Barack Obama is strong enough to be president. On the domestic political front, he showed incredible weakness in dealing with the Clintons, while on foreign and defense questions, he betrayed a lack of strength and resolve in standing up to Russia’s invasion of Georgia. This two-dimensional portrait of weakness underscores fears that Obama might, indeed, be a latter-day Jimmy Carter. Consider first the domestic and political. Bill and Hillary Clinton have no leverage over Obama. Hillary can’t win the nomination. She doesn’t control any committees. If she or her supporters tried to disrupt...

At first I dismissed it because I thought there was no way the Democratic Party would allow someone who is not qualified to run for the office of President. I now understand that at least half of the state attorney generals in the country will challenge Obama’s residency before certifying his nomination. Lawsuits will be filed to clarify Obama’s birth in the United States. Until today I simply believed that Obama was born in Hawaii. After doing some research I found it is not so clear...

    Barack Obama yesterday launched his search for a running mate - as Democratic calls for a "marriage" to rival Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton reached new heights. With the party sharply divided after a bruising primary season - and with Clinton having won many key states - a growing number of Democratic officials are now openly talking about an Obama-Clinton ticket that could unite the factions and take back the White House in November.

    ABC News' Ed O'Keefe Reports: Perhaps there will be a Madame President Clinton after all. No, not Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y. How about former first daughter and active campaigner Chelsea Clinton? "If you asked me (if Chelsea would run for office) before Iowa, I would have said, 'No way. She is too allergic to anything we do.' But she is really good at it," former President Bill Clinton tells PEOPLE magazine in their latest issue, hitting newsstands Friday.
