    NEW YORK -- It was just a few minutes into Anthony Weiner's door-to-door canvass of a Harlem public housing complex Thursday night, and the New York City mayoral candidate was already agitated. As he scanned his staff-prepared list of apartment numbers and corresponding residents' names, the candidate shook his head in disapproval. "This is no good, the way you have this organized," he said to one of two young, female aides who were accompanying him. “This is N.G. -- not great.” A few minutes later, Weiner remained fixated on the quality of his staff’s advance work, voicing his displeasure in...

Anthony Weiner jolted the New York City mayoral race on Tuesday, saying his habit of sending lewd pictures and messages to women he met online had continued well past his June 2011 resignation from Congress. "I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have," Mr. Weiner said at a news conference. "While some things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there is no question that what I did was wrong. Mr. Weiner said he is no longer engaged in such behavior.

    A strap-hanging MBTA heroine said she went into “She-Hulk” mode to single-handedly collar a man who exposed himself on a crowded B-Line trolley — dragging him off the train and holding him until cops arrived. The 24-year-old Allston woman, who did not want to be named, said the man boarded one stop after she did on her ride home from her marketing job Thursday. She immediately noticed him staring. “This guy was just being a real creeper,” she said. As she shuffled along the train, he followed her. She zoned out, listening to music, only to look up and see...

    Windsor, Calif- A newly imposed ban on sexually suggestive dance moves prompted hundreds of teenagers to boycott a Hawaiian-themed party in their high school gymnasium. Windsor High School only sold 56 tickets to Friday night's semiformal Turnabout Dance, which usually draws as many as 500 students. It was the first dance where Windsor students — and their parents — had to sign a good-behavior contract to get tickets. The contract forbids dancers from "sexual" squatting or bending and from touching breasts, buttocks or genitals. The school bans music from the hip-hop genre "hyphy" and any move where one person's buttocks...

The book promises to be more even-handed than the presidential library and museum in Little Rock, which presents some of the controversies of Clinton's presidency squarely...

    It rained on Bill Clinton's parade -- and on a host of gathered Democratic luminaries -- in Little Rock earlier this month. The opening of Clinton's new presidential library, a disconnected bridge to the 21st century, was a largely sodden show. A military man gamely held an umbrella above the former president's already wet head, and the singer Bono's sunglasses were doing double duty as water shields. A day later, a photo preserved the sight of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton jammed together in a doorway, each intending to go first (Clinton won). It brought to mind the shadow-boxing...

    The same week he opened his presidential library, former President Bill Clinton sat down for an oft-contentious interview with ABC News anchor Peter Jennings. During the interview, Clinton reminded us of the lies, arrogance, and utter contempt for our nation's highest office that he routinely exhibited during his administration. When Jennings discussed the rankings of presidential historians who rated him beneath Richard Nixon in moral authority, Clinton went ballistic. "And still, [there's] not any example of where I ever disgraced this country publicly. I made a terrible public-personal mistake, but I paid for it, many times over," Clinton said. "And...

Now, in an ironic twist, a new poll reveals that most people think the Clinton years were indeed all about sex. Fifty-three percent of those responding to the Polling Company survey said that the Lewinsky affair is what they will remember most about the Clinton years. Only 11 percent will remember Clinton as a good president. While his impeachment is conspicuous by its near absence in the...

    Elusive building, like the man Tuesday, Nov 23, 2004 By John Brummett I agree with Hillary Clinton when she says her husband's new presidential library in Little Rock reflects him perfectly. But I see it and him differently from the way she sees them. She says the structure represents Bill in that it is open, expansive and full of light. She's correct as far as that goes. But the library mirrors him in a more substantive way: What you make of it depends on your angle. From the Interstate 30 bridge over the Arkansas River the structure looks for all...

    INDEPENDENCE, Mo., Nov. 23 - That legendary sign "The Buck Stops Here" gets prominent display at the Truman Presidential Museum and Library, along with a cautionary disclaimer that it is "unclear how long it sat" on Truman's Oval Office desk. But the sign, and its appearance here, provide a bracing contrast to the sensations inspired by the new William J. Clinton Presidential Center, 400 miles away in Little Rock, Ark. Some similarities might be expected. Both William Jefferson Clinton and Harry S. Truman were Democratic presidents sometimes facing hostile Republican-dominated Congresses; both were born without inheritance or distinguished lineage; both...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Nov. 19 - With its sleek horizontal form hovering at the edge of the Arkansas River, the new William J. Clinton Presidential Center has been called by promoters a "bridge to the 21st century," a trite allusion to one of the former president's favorite themes. Locals snicker that it looks like an enormous double-wide trailer. Actually, its best elements fall somewhere between those two extremes. Designed by James Polshek and Richard Olcott of the New York-based firm Polshek Partnership, the library has moments of genuine architectural power. Its sleek cantilevered form thrusts out aggressively toward the river,...

    ...“We’ve got to take the country back,” Clinton mused, “beginning right here with this little bit of blue in a sea of red.” Thousands braved a driving rain in Little Rock to celebrate the opening Thursday of the William J. Clinton Presidential Center. Locals think the rectangular building looks like a double-wide trailer on stilts, but architecture critics, a snobby bunch, give it rave reviews. Clinton wanted a building bathed in light and transparent, an apt metaphor for a president whose public and private life was laid bare before the public. He noted that the London Economist called the futuristic...

    (KRT) - Our quiz today is a multiple-choice question: What does Bill Clinton want? (A) To guide Democrats out of the deep woods. (B) To help heal the nation's bitter divisions. (C) To pave the way for President Hillary. The correct answer is all of the above - and none of the above. What Bubba really wants is vindication. Everything else, including Hillary in the Oval Office, is just a means to his end game of getting back on top again. It's all about one more comeback. It ain't gonna happen. Clinton's presiding over the opening of his $165 million...

    When Hillary Clinton runs for president, she may have to face her own version of the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth - in the form of her husband's accusers, the women the Clintons have been trying to erase from the national memory of Bill's presidency. Reacting to Sen. Clinton's efforts to use the opening of her husband's presidential library last week as a springboard for her campaign, star impeachment witness Kathleen Willey told NewsMax, "I have some words of advice for the former first lady. Remember the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth." Willey said she was struck by the fact that...

    Clinton did a masterful job putting the art of governance into a broader perspective last week at the dedication of his remarkable library in Little Rock. Typically, The Natural performed this feat while winging it, instead of trying to read a prepared speech in a driving rainstorm. In just a few minutes of oratory while the rain plastered down his hair, the former president managed to say more of consequence than any other political figure has blabbered since the latest ugly election season mercifully ended. Instead of new thinking or deep thinking, politicians have mostly been positioning themselves, thinking narrowly....

    Somebody is conspicuous by her absence in Little Rock THE six-year-old Billy Clinton received only satisfactory marks for arithmetic, reading, spelling and writing. But High Noon was already his favourite film and, using crayons, he could produce a picture of the final shoot-out. This and much more can be learnt from the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum, a sparkling $165 million (£88.7 million) glass and steel container dubbed “trailer home chic”, which is to be dedicated today and officially opens tomorrow. In among its 80 million pieces of paper, 2 million photographs and 77,000 objects and artefacts,...

    On November 21, William J. Bennett, conservative author and nationally syndicated radio host, falsely claimed six times that former President Bill Clinton committed "perjury" or a "felony" for lying under oath. Bennett appeared on FOX Broadcasting Company's FOX News Sunday opposite Robert B. Reich, former Clinton administration Labor secretary, to discuss Clinton's legacy three days after the November 18 opening of the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas. As Media Matters for America has noted, the Senate acquitted Clinton on both articles of impeachment, one of which was perjury. In order for a lie under oath to amount to...

    2. THE CLINTON LIBRARY It was definitely Not Hot in Little Rock, Arkansas, on that wet and chilly day in mid-November when the worshipful Friends of Bill -- the rich, the famous, the powerful, the crooked, and the self-deluded -- descended on the sleepy southern city to join other dignitaries in the garish, over-the-top dedication of the newly erected Clinton Presidential Center. With a torrential rain gushing down, it was as if the heavens themselves had opened up in a fury over the obscene celebration going on down below, casting a deliberate pall over the whole nauseating display of hubris,...

    During ABC's hour-long Primetime Special Edition promotion of the opening of the Clinton Library, titled, "Bill Clinton: A Place in History," Peter Jennings trumpeted his record as "full of accomplishment" and touted how he's "hugely popular in other parts of the world." But Clinton lectured Jennings on ABC's bias against him. Jennings had told the former President how a survey of historians had ranked him highly in some areas, but that "they gave you a 41st on moral authority." That prompted Clinton to launch into a rant against Ken Starr and the historians, but he maintained that "I don't really...
