    I don't know whether Gen. Wesley Clark is qualified to be president, but Peter J. Boyer's profile in this week's New Yorkerwhich paints him as scarily unqualifiedis an unfair portrait as well as a misleading, occasionally inaccurate prcis of the 1999 Kosovo war and Clark's role in commanding it.Boyer relies heavily on some of Clark's fellow retired Army generals who clearly despise him. The gist of their critique, as Boyer summarizes, is that Clark, while a brilliant analyst, "had a certainty about the rightness of his views which led to conflicts with his colleagues and, sometimes, his superiors." I have...

    Hillary Clinton launched an astonishing public attack on Nigel Farage on Thursday - hours after he taunted her scandal-hit reputation as he campaigned beside Donald Trump. The Democratic presidential candidate used a speech attacking Trump and claiming he was linked to the KKK to launch an assault on Farage, whom she labeled as 'one of Britain's most prominent right-wing leaders' - and accused him of being inspired by Vladimir Putin. Farage had been hailed by Trump for his role in securing an anti-establishment victory in the British referendum on leaving the European Union. The former leader of the United Kingdom...

    Donald Trump has fired his first shots of the general election campaign. Predictably, they have nothing to do with anything that matters. In a new video released on Instagram, Trump features audio interviews with women whove accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault. Against the backdrop of shadowy audio clips, the accompanying text asks if Hillary Clinton is really protecting women. We hear the voices of Monica Lewinsky, Kathleen Wiley, and a clip from a 1999 Dateline interview with Juanita Broaddrick. Near the end, as the sound of Hillary Clintons cackle fades, the words Here we go again flash on the...

    Is this why stocks are slipping? Following Hillary's hint last night that she would like to put her husband in "charge of revitalising the economy, because you know he knows how to do it," Bill confirmed the farce this morning, admitting he has asked for an "economic role" in his wife's adminstration. As Yves Smith so eloquently noted, after having institutionalized the neoliberal economic policies that have enriched the 1% and particularly the 0.1% at the expense of everyone else, Hillary Clinton wants to give the long-suffereing citizenry an even bigger dose.

    Someday historians will acknowledge the direct causal relationship between the near high tech lynching of Clarence Thomas and the impeachment of Bill Clinton. Liberal partisans such as Nina Totenberg, disguised as reporters, contrived as feminists to enrage much of the world against Clarence Thomas for alleged offenses which, in the wake of Clinton's sordid grotesqueries and felonies committed during the Monica Lewinsky affair, can only be considered trivial. What exactly did Thomas do to Anita Hill? She testified for the first time years after the alleged facts, that he (1) exclaimed that there was a "pubic hair" on his coke...

Sticking mostly to descriptions of Mrs. Clinton’s policy positions and biography, the former president made only glancing references to her opponents, saying that some were “kind of scary” but not naming names.

    In the early 1990s, fried foods, carbohydrates and desserts dominated Marybelle's high school lunch choices. Vending machines lined the school hallways, offering sugary drinks and unhealthy snacks. With limited healthy options, Marybelle unsurprisingly developed habits that led to high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Today, it's a different story for her son, Bobby, who's in the seventh grade, and his generation. Bobby started an afternoon fitness club at his middle school and volunteers in his school garden. The school's food service director ensures that students are served fresh fruits and vegetables. Bobby has motivated his mom to give up soda,...

    The State Department says there won't be an internal investigation into why the agency couldnt find part or all of 15 emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clintons personal email server. I know of no such investigation, certainly not by the State Department, no, State Department spokesman John Kirby said during a Friday press briefing. We were clear about that in our communication with the committee that of the 15 that we did not have, that Mr. Blumenthal had, they were not specifically related to Benghazi, which was the original mandate on the select committee, Kirby said. Again, we...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton today rolled out a series of programs designed to reduce the youth unemployment rate, but Clinton, herself, is building out a portion of her campaign with unpaid labor. Clintons campaign is establishing a network of grassroots trainees, called Organizing Fellows, who are being signed on full-time to work for free. Some, even those who are young professionals with experience in politics, are reportedly being told they need to work without pay for at least the summer months. Some see Clintons fellowship program, which is comprised of mostly 18 to 24 year olds likely doing much...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton, at a major outdoor rally planned for Saturday, will directly address concerns that have emerged in the early weeks of her candidacy. It will be held in New York City on an island named for Franklin D. Roosevelt, in the shadow of diverse middle-class neighborhoods. And she will channel her personal hero, Eleanor Roosevelt, in emphasizing womens and civil rights and her assertion that the Republican Party is out of touch with an increasingly diverse electorate. Mrs. Clinton has yet to put forth a clear rationale for her candidacy since announcing in a brief online video that...

    Bill Clinton gave one of his lengthiest rebuttals yet on Wednesday of allegations that his wife Hillary Clinton, now running for president, gave favorable treatment to donors to the family's charities while she was U.S. secretary of state. "No one has ever asked me for anything," he said of the foundation's donors in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper. Clinton said he did not know whether foreign governments, companies and other foundation donors were seeking anything in return beyond supporting philanthropy. "And I don't think Hillary would know, either," he said. "She was pretty busy those years. I never saw...

    New York Times ^ | June 1, 2015 | By Maggie Haberman
    Hillary Rodham Clintons top campaign lawyer has filed a second voter-access lawsuit accusing a Republican-led state of trying to suppress the vote this time in Wisconsin, home to Scott Walker, the governor and likely Republican 2016 presidential candidate. This lawsuit concerns the most fundamental of rights guaranteed citizens in our representative democracy the right to vote, the complaint states, then refers to a curtailing of early voting in the state, among other changes that affect minority voters and other groups. That right has been under attack in Wisconsin since Republicans gained control of the governors office and both...

    Former President Bill Clinton is pushing back against the controversies swirling around his familys foundation and vexing Hillary Clintons presidential campaign. Its the political season in America, so the purpose and impact of the efforts your support makes possible has largely been ignored in recent coverage of the Foundation, Clinton wrote Friday morning in a 1,178-word letter to donors and supporters of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. Clintons only concession to the spate of bad news was that the foundation will continue to look for ways to improve our reporting systems so that we can operate as accurately,...

    ... Mrs. Clinton lacks some of the extraordinary gifts for connection and empathy that her husband possesses, and the round-table events that have characterized her early campaign can feel stage-managed. But even these settings are producing revealing moments, as Mrs. Clinton finds herself far from the world of international diplomacy and scrambling to re-educate herself about the nation she hopes to lead. A lot has changed since Mrs. Clinton left domestic politics to become the secretary of state: Student debt has ballooned, access to credit has tightened, and the cause of income inequality has taken on a forceful momentum. Ever...
