  • Washington - On Hillary Clinton's Age, Republican Rivals Imply -- But Never Say -- She's Old

    REuters ^ | may 1, 2015 | Staff
    Her campaign barely three weeks old, Hillary Clinton already has been attacked by Republicans on everything from donations to her family’s charitable foundation, to her tenure as secretary of state and her ties to Wall Street. But her rivals, and the political action committees that support them, are treading more carefully on one incendiary subject: her age . If elected in November 2016, Clinton would be, at 69, the second-oldest person to take the presidential oath for the first time, behind only Ronald Reagan, who turned 70 weeks after being sworn into office in 1981. Questions of health and fitness...

    The fact that not every Republican presidential candidate is a white male may help in the fight against the Democrats/ The Republican presidential field is expected to double this week, as retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee are expected to declare their candidacies. Carson and Fiorina are expected to announce on Monday, while Huckabee is summoning the press on Tuesday to his hometown of Hope, Arkansas - a town made famous by Bill Clinton, who, upon becoming the Democratic presidential nominee in 1992, famously declared: “I still believe in a place...

    Americans appear to be suspicious of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s honesty, and even many Democrats are only lukewarm about her presidential candidacy, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. Is she strong and decisive? Yes, say a majority of people. But inspiring and likable? Only a minority think so. Clinton’s struggles to explain her email practices while in government, along with questions about the Clinton Foundation and Republican criticism of her openness, wealth and trustworthiness seem to have struck a nerve in the public’s perception of the dominant Democratic figure in the 2016 campaign. In the survey, 61 percent said “honest”...

    It’s been a tough week for Hillary Clinton, with a flurry of bad news that is casting further doubt on her prospects for winning the Democratic Party nomination, let alone the White House. She did receive a celebrity endorsement, but, alas, it came from pornographer Larry Flynt, and as Bloomberg’s John Heilemann observes, it “beggars belief that she and her team will be issuing any press releases touting the latest bold-faced name to clamber aboard her bandwagon.” A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds Americans suspicious of Clinton’s honesty, and even many Democrats are only lukewarm about her presidential candidacy.

    The PUMAs are back on the prowl. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s decision to run for president has stirred up old feelings for some loyal supporters who refused to accept her defeat in the 2008 Democratic primary. When other Democrats put away their swords and rallied behind Barack Obama, the resisters responded: “Party unity, my ass!” — hence the nickname PUMAs. After seven years in the political wilderness, some are ecstatic at the chance to help elect a candidate that they believe in, and to make history by putting the first woman in the White House. Others are excited but cautious, still...

    Hillary cited all sorts of stats about incarceration rates in her speech yesterday.  I could write paragraphs about her misuse of the statistics to make a point rather than build understanding.  But at bottom of all the statistics she cited is one simple question, “In each instance that is a part of the stats was the defendant guilty?”  If so then regardless of the statistics, the law was followed and presumably justice was done.  To contend differently is to contend that somehow the law and justice parted company. Justice is measured in the facts of each individual case.  It is not...

    Hillary Clinton tried to take a break from controversy this week with a speech at Columbia University in New York voicing her concern about civil unrest in Baltimore and her prescription for reforming the criminal justice system. But for the former Secretary of State and leading Democratic presidential candidate, renewed controversy is always just around the corner. On Thursday, House Republicans announced that their once floundering probe of Clinton’s conduct surrounding the 2012 terrorist attacks on a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya just got another important boost: The State Department handed over 4,000 pages of new documents to a...

    There is a growing realization inside Hillary Clinton’s Brooklyn headquarters and among the wider circle of Democratic operatives that coming up with the requisite $1 billion to $2.5 billion in campaign and super PAC cash for the 2016 campaign will be a lot tougher than anticipated — and demands a more aggressive approach to out-of-the-gate fundraising. The pace of donations to Clinton’s three-week-old campaign is surpassing forecasts — but the candidate herself wants to accelerate the timetable and just added several new New York City fundraisers to her May schedule, people close to Clinton tell POLITICO.

    Had Freddie Gray been robbed, beaten and left to die in the streets of his Baltimore neighborhood, no one would be mourning him today. No one would be marching for Freddie. No one would be using Freddie as the new poster child of “Black Lives Matter!” No one would care, three weeks later, but his family and friends. It was the manner of his death, suffering a fractured spine in police custody, that makes Freddie matter. For he can now be credibly cast in the victim’s role in the great new narrative against America – that ours is a society...

    Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea left earlier this week on a nine-day tour through Africa with a plane-full of family foundation donors and Hillary Clinton supporters in tow, adding jet fuel to accusations that contributors are getting rewarded -- and courted for even more money. Those on the four-country tour are expected to observe foreign projects the Clinton Global Initiative has backed connected to health care, global warming, wildlife protection, education and agriculture. While foundation aides tout their many successful initiatives in Africa, the trip comes amid the growing controversy over donations to the Clinton family's foundation. Conservative...

    In the nearly two-year smorgasbord of scandal (real and faux) that the Hillary Rodham Clinton presidential campaign promises to deliver, last month’s brouhaha over her email was but an appetizer. Not two weeks after she officially announced her run for president, Clinton has been informed that she will be hauled not once, but twice, before the House committee re-investigating the attacks on the U.S. compound in Benghazi in 2012. The book, Clinton Cash, by conservative author Peter Schweizer, makes a circumstantial case for possible wrongdoing by Clinton, tying the timing of speaking fees paid to her husband and donations to...

    A review of financial documents for the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (Canada) shows the charity’s revenue dropped substantially in 2013, the year Hillary Clinton resigned as Secretary of State. For the first time since it was registered to accept donations in 2007, CGEP spent more on salaries and office supplies in 2013 than it did on charitable giving. The NY Times revealed Wednesday that the Canadian charity collected about $33 million between 2008 and 2013 of which $25 million was passed across the border to the U.S. based Clinton Foundation. However there was a sharp drop in giving in 2013,...

That may well turn out to be the case. But it’s not because of the allegations about “Clinton cash” or deleted emails. Those are major political scandals, to be sure, but of a kind that a shameless Bill Clinton skated through easily during his own administration. The deeper problem is personal.

All but 13 Republicans voted for the resolution of disapproval, which passed on a largely party-line, 228-192 vote, while just three Democrats voted in favor of it. The measure got a high-level Democratic opponent on Thursday with Hillary Clinton's campaign weighing in, calling it a move to "overrule the Democratic process" in a statement to CNN.

These are real,” Chafee said.

    Hillary Clinton’s proposal to get money out of politics could allow the federal government to restrict or ban the publication of a book that has embroiled her presidential campaign in controversy, experts say. Clinton called for a constitutional amendment to “get unaccountable money out of” politics in an op-ed for the Des Moines Register published Monday. Her campaign did not respond to requests for additional details, but legal experts say similar efforts over the past two years would have profound effects on Americans’ free speech rights.

    Bernie Sanders just announced that he is running for President in 2016. The conventional wisdom shared not just by conservatives but many Democrats is that self-described socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is so unrepresentative of mainstream American political thought that he cannot pose a serious threat to Hillary Clinton. ItÂ’s true that the former secretary of state remains the prohibitive favorite to win her partyÂ’s nomination in 2016, and there isnÂ’t much evidence beyond the anecdotal that suggests Democrats are uncomfortable anointing her Barack ObamaÂ’s chosen successor. That dynamic might change, however, if Sanders runs against Clinton in a manner...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton isn’t just running against Republicans. She’s also running against parts of her husband’s legacy. On issues large and small, the Democratic presidential contender is increasingly distancing herself from — or even opposing — key policies pushed by Bill Clinton while he was in the White House, from her recent skepticism on free-trade pacts to her full embrace of gay rights. The starkest example yet came Wednesday, when Hillary Clinton delivered an impassioned address condemning the “era of incarceration” ushered in during the 1990s in the wake of her husband’s 1994 crime bill — though she never mentioned...

Unlike Bill Clinton, whose ability to convey to individual voters an air of personal concern for the issues that affected them and their families -- a campaign technique referred to as "retailing" -- Hillary Clinton's initial attempt to connect with voters at an Iowa coffee house and her stealth visit to...

    “It’s time to change our approach,” Clinton said in her first major policy address since launching her presidential campaign earlier this month. “It’s time to end the era of mass incarceration.” Clinton spoke in the days after violence and protests have swept through the streets of Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who suffered a spinal-cord injury while in police custody. In a speech at Columbia University, Clinton spoke of protests over policing in Ferguson, Missouri; Charleston, South Carolina; and in New York, and repudiated policies dating to her husband Bill Clinton’s presidency that lengthened...

    Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate, on Wednesday dove into the debate over the death of Freddie Gray, the young black man whose death has triggered days of protests in Baltimore. In her speech at Columbia University, Clinton outlined a broader vision of criminal justice reform. “What we have seen in Baltimore should indeed--and I think does--tear at our souls,” Clinton said. Her speech strove to put Gray’s death in police custody in the broader context of poverty in Baltimore. Clinton reminded the audience that one out of every three young black men in the city are unable to find...

    BloombergPolitics reported this morning that the Clinton Foundation refused to disclose the identities of at least 1,100 donors, most of whom are not U.S. citizens, to a Clinton Foundation affiliate. The donations were routed through the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (Canada), or CGEPartnership, a Canadian charitable organization. That organization then effectively bundled the foreign donations and sent them along to the Clinton Foundation itself, and it did all of this without ever disclosing the individual foreign sources of the income.If that sounds to you like more of a laundering operation than a charitable organization, that’s because it certainly looks...
  • Parallel Universe: Hillary's Campaign, Media's Nonstop Scandal Coverage

    The sentence jumps out of Hillary Clinton’s op-ed piece on how she’s been listening to “everyday Iowans.” “We can fix our dysfunctional political system and get unaccountable money out of it once and for all, even if that takes a constitutional amendment,” she writes in the Des Moines Register. Um, is this the right time for Hillary to be talking about “unaccountable money”? The optics of her fledgling campaign are mighty strange, almost like it exists in one universe and the media coverage occupies a parallel universe.

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave the most substantive speech of her nascent presidential campaign so far on Wednesday. In her address at Columbia University, Clinton called for a major overhaul in the US criminal justice system. She repeatedly lambasted "the mass incarceration that we currently practice" and overly punitive, "arbitrary" criminal statutes, which she said result in racial discrimination. "There is something profoundly wrong when African-American men are still far more likely to be stopped and searched by police, charged with crimes, and sentenced to longer prison terms than are meted out to their white counterparts. There is...

    Tough-on-crime policies that emphasized arrests and convictions for relatively minor offenses have failed the country, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday, leading to overcrowded prisons and too many black men "missing" from their families and communities. "We need to restore balance to our criminal justice system," Clinton told an audience at Columbia University in New York. Calling for an "end to the era of mass incarceration," Clinton endorsed body cameras for police nationwide to record interactions between officers and potential suspects. Making her most specific policy proposals since launching her campaign earlier this month, Clinton said it's time...

    Hillary Clinton on Wednesday addressed the issues of police brutality and rioting most recently seen in Baltimore, by saying the country needs to restore trust between citizens and police officers, and by arguing for an end to lengthy prison terms for low-level offenders. In an address to Columbia University, Clinton argued that throwing people in jail for smaller crimes isn’t making the country any safer. She also said it’s depriving thousands of children with parents, which is locking in place a cycle of poverty for these families. “Keeping them behind bars does little to reduce crime, but it does a...

    Bill Clinton collected $2.5 MILLION in speaking fees from companies that lobbied Hillary's State Department Former president Bill Clinton reaped more than $2.5 million in speaking fees from 13 companies that lobbied the State Department while his wife was secretary of state. Ten of those companies paid him within the same 3-month reporting period covered by the government documents that disclosed the lobbying activity. Most of the influence-peddling accusations swirling around Hillary Clinton in the past ten days have focused on claims that she traded the power of her office in exchange for foreign contributions to the Clinton Foundation, her...

    Aren't Democrats supposed to be more enlightened on this issue?Yesterday the Brennan Center for Justice published an essay collection that highlights both the emerging bipartisan consensus in favor of criminal justice reform and the vacuousness of some politicians who claim to support that cause. The book, titled Solutions: American Leaders Speak Out on Criminal Justice, features worthy and substantive contributions from, among others, Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), and Ted Cruz (R-Texas), not to mention nonpoliticians such as UCLA criminologist Mark Kleiman and Marc Levin, founder of Right on Crime. Even New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is...

    To cleanse the palate, I paraphrase “Spinal Tap”: It’s like how much gayer could this be? And the answer is none. None more gay.The logo is to celebrate oral arguments this morning at the Supreme Court, which is funny because as recently as a year ago Hillary didn’t even want the issue in front of SCOTUS. She told an interviewer at NPR in June 2014, fully a year after the Windsor case was decided and with today’s case already a very real possibility, that she thought the legality of gay marriage should be left up to the states. In other...
