    Here's how you kill a book: First, see to it that it emerges into the public eye on the Friday of a holiday weekend. Then, express ostentatious boredom at its contents. Then, attack. Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson declined to comment on the question of whether the campaign leaked to The Washington Post a copy of one of two forthcoming biographies of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. And though there’s no confirmation that the Clinton campaign leaked either book, there is at least some circumstantial evidence that points that way. “The only people who have an interest in putting it out on...

    May 13, 2007 -- First he helped Al Gore fight George W. Bush. Now, he's helping Michael Moore do the same thing. High-powered attorney David Boies - chief counsel in Gore's recount battle against Bush in the 2000 presidential election - has been hired to help the filmmaker fight a federal probe into his new film "Sicko," according to The Weinstein Company. Moore landed in hot water when he took ailing 9/11 responders to Cuba seeking health care as part of the documentary, which highlights problems with the American health care system and HMOs.

    WASHINGTON - Heading into a midterm election year, Republicans find themselves with not one, but two congressional leaders — Bill Frist in the Senate and Tom DeLay in the House — fending off questions of ethical improprieties. The news that federal prosecutors and the Securities and Exchange Commission are looking into Frist's sale of stock in HCA Inc., the hospital operating company founded by his family, comes as a criminal investigation continues of Jack Abramoff, a high-powered Republican lobbyist, and his ties to DeLay of Texas. Less than a week ago, a former White House official was arrested in the...

    The Bay Bridge retrofit contractor's new spokesman is a political public-relations heavy hitter with a national reputation for digging up dirt on embattled clients' critics. Chris Lehane, 37, helped the Clinton White House spin the Whitewater investigation, spoke for Vice President Al Gore on the 2000 presidential campaign trail and advised former Gov. Gray Davis during the 2001 energy crisis and 2002 gubernatorial campaign. Now he's working for KFM Joint Venture, the contractor building the Bay Bridge's new eastern span. The Oakland Tribune has reported welders' accusations that many of the project's welds are defective and that unsafe working conditions...

    John Kerry's Intern Eruption The Year of the Skunk February 15, 2004 by Barbara J. Stock It’s the Chinese year of the Monkey and I guess that means something if you are Chinese.  I’m not Chinese so I suggest that 2004 be the year of the Skunk.  When you look at a skunk, it appears cute, even pretty with its black and white fur and that cute little nose and button eyes.  Of course, if you threaten one, you are rudely introduced to the business end of this fluffy, adorable little creature and it’s an encounter you will never forget. ...

    Former Clinton White House attack dog and one-time Gore campaign communications director Chris Lehane didn't deny last Sunday allegations that he's Gen. Wesley Clark's presidential campaign dirty trickster. Asked if he was "the guy behind the dirty tricks," Lehane brushed aside the question, telling Fox News Channel's Rita Cosby, "Well, you know, there has not been a single thing that's been covered on Howard Dean or any of these other candidates that was not accurate and true. Reporters report the information based on the facts." Cosby pressed Lehane to confirm or deny his role as the Clark campaign's primo attack...

    Acting at the behest of Bill and Hillary Clinton, a senior campaign aide to Gen. Wesley Clark has carried out the "political assassination" of Democratic presidential front-runner Howard Dean, former top Clinton advisor Dick Morris contended late Friday. "I believe we have witnessed a political assassination of Howard Dean by the Clintons," Morris told Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes" - hours after polls showed that Dean's once formidable lead in Iowa had evaporated. Morris named Clark communications director Chris Lehane, a former Gore campaign spokesman who cut his teeth as a key operative in the Clinton White House's attack...

    Webster's defines weasel as any of a worldwide group of agile, flesh-eating mammals with short legs and a bushy tail, the base of the word being weis, which in reference to the rank odor emitted by an animal means to flow out. They could save some ink by defining weasel as Chris Lehane, press secretary to Al Gore during the 2000 election. Lehane crawled out of his timeshare beneath Maine Avenue this week to reveal that, in his opinion, the sneak attack disclosure that George W. Bush had been arrested for DUI gave the popular vote to Gore in the...
