  • Hoary old Bill (Clinton) making liberals sweat (poor old codger alert)

    Brit Hume, speaking on FOX News, noted that Bill Clinton is now an elderly man - a thought that I'll wager has been going through many American minds since last Monday night, when Hillary gave her post-caucus acceptance...er, victory speech in Iowa. [Snip] The visage that Bill wore for much of that harangue was truly revealing - more like something you'd see in a nursing home day room than on a presidential campaign stage. His head drooped, and his mouth frequently gaped open in what almost appeared to be a slack-eyed but leering old geezer smile directed towards his partner's...

    NYTimes ^ | PATRICK HEALY
    Bill Clinton came to the vote-rich city of Mason City on Wednesday night and recounted his wife's life experiences, recited her policy ideas, and ripped into the Republicans a bit. But what Mr. Clinton used to do so well -- and what Hillary Clinton needs, only days before the Iowa caucuses on Monday -- was nowhere to be found: a polished, piercing critique of an opponent, in this case Bernie Sanders. At an event in Las Vegas last week, Mr. Clinton, 69, looked smaller and his voice seemed weaker than in past campaigns, and people had to strain to hear...

    (CNN)—Hillary Clinton's longtime aide and 2008 campaign manager said in an interview published Sunday night that she considered quitting her White House post in 1998 during the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Patti Solis Doyle, who served as a senior adviser to Clinton when she was first lady, said that she considered resigning, but ultimately resolved to stay: "Why would I punish her by quitting?" 

    Bill Clinton's affairs numbered in the "thousands," and Hillary Clinton's response was to "disseminate information and destroy the women with whom he dallied," according to Linda Tripp, a key figure in the Monica Lewinsky scandal. "Everyone knew within the West Wing, particularly those who spent years with him, of the thousands of women," Tripp told Breitbart.com's Aaron Klein in a an interview Sunday night on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio.” "But as to the hundreds or thousands, remember I worked closely with the closest aides to the president," she said. “And it was a loosey-goosy environment so there was not a...

    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...

    Faced with a sea of raised hands, Democrat Hillary Clinton often struggles out loud trying to decide who to call on. At a town hall meeting on Tuesday in Sioux City, Iowa, she knew right away. "I gotta call on you," she told a young man near the front. Turning to the audience, she said, "He has a T-shirt that says, 'Bill Clinton for First Lady.'" "You know," the former first lady said, "I'm sort of more partial to First Mate or First Dude." The voter went on to ask a question about the criminal justice system It wasn’t the...

    EXETER, N.H. — Eight years after aggressively defending his wife during her first presidential campaign, Bill Clinton was unusually understated and subdued on Monday during his first solo swing back in New Hampshire for Hillary Clinton, restraining himself even in the face of taunts from Donald J. Trump. 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. He also suggested that he would not thrive politically today because he was not “mad at anybody,” an implicit jab...

    Bill Clinton's political muscle memory took him down a well-worn path Monday in New Hampshire: the rally in Nashua, the lunchtime mingle in Manchester and the afternoon town hall in Exeter. Like the snow flurries on one of the coldest days of winter so far, Clinton's Arkansas twang was so familiar in the hamlets of the Granite State that it seemed to signal that the time to pick a president is near again. Asked about the repeated assertions by Republican front-runner Donald Trump that Clinton's history of sexual indiscretions was "fair game" in the campaign, he demurred. "There's always a...

    Dale L. Bumpers, a liberal governor and four-term Democratic senator from Arkansas who came out of retirement in 1999 to make a passionate closing argument defending President Bill Clinton against removal from office in a Senate trial, died on Friday at his home in Little Rock, Ark. He was 90. His death was confirmed by his granddaughter Linn Bumpers. Mr. Bumpers was part of a generation of moderate Southern Democrats, among them President Jimmy Carter, who emerged in the late 1960s and the ’70s. He always said his proudest achievement had come early in his career when, as a small-town...

    To those of us who have followed the ongoing Clinton Saga, which now reaches back almost twenty-five years, Hillary Rodham Clinton's computer server promises to become as historic as Monica Lewinsky's stained dress. That is to say, that her server may indeed become as significant to her presidential prospects as Monica's dress was to Bill's prospects for impeachment. It is now apparent to fact finders across the nation that some of Hillary's e-mails-thousands of which have been saved on her personal server-show that she lied to the American people as surely as Monica's dress proved that Bill lied to the...

    ...Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday launched a vigorous counterattack on behalf of her husband's beleaguered presidency, declaring that the president is the victim of a "politically motivated" prosecutor allied with a "vast right-wing conspiracy." Using a nationally televised interview as her forum, she assumed a familiar and crucial role as Bill Clinton's first defender. She said she knew him better than anyone in the world, still loved him, and fully believed his denial of allegations that he had entered into a sexual relationship with a White House intern and had urged the young woman to lie about it. The first lady's...

    If Hillary Clinton thinks Big Bad Bubba is going to dust up Donald Trump, she is in for a rude, crude awakening. Former President Clinton is the most target-rich environment that Trump could ever hope to direct his vitriol. And he’ll have fun doing it, too. Think Lenny Bruce onstage, rattling on for hours about his legal troubles — but this time it will be Donald J. Trump, excitedly working his way through selections of the Starr Report. He might start with the chapter titled “Narrative Pt. II: Initial Sexual Encounters.”

Hillary Clinton provoked a fearsome outrage from the political right on Monday with an online video in which she insists Americans should reflexively side with young women on college campuses who accuse male students of sexual assault.

But most of all, her tweet seems to have backfired among most people on Twitter. Some noted that using sad faces, cats...

The statement does not say how much Clinton earned each year. She made roughly $15 million in charitable donations. Weve come a long way from my days going door-to-door for the Childrens Defense Fund and earning $16,450 as a young law professor in Arkansas and we owe it to the opportunities America provides, Clinton said in the statement.

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.

Lorella Praeli is here under President Obamas 2012 deportation amnesty for Dreamers, or young adult illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. As part of that amnesty, she has tentative legal status and a work permit, so it is legal to hire her but she is still not in lawful presence.

Her lawyer, in response to a specific question about the “hrod17″ e-mail address, claimed flat out that that address didn’t exist until after she’d stepped down as secretary.

Again and again, the ethics office responsible for vetting his appearances hurriedly signed off on them, even in cases where questions had been raised about the behavior of organizations hiring Bill Clinton to appear. It approved at least 330 requests for the former president's appearance at speeches, dinners and events. More than 220 of those were...

    (CNN) A month after launching Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy, with every moment of her announcement video and reintroduction tour to voters carefully crafted, her campaign team now finds itself consumed by fending off a familiar, yet far more elusive, adversary: The Clinton legacy. Aides to Clinton still insist she will run the race on her own terms without distraction from whirlwinds of controversy. Yet strategists acknowledge sufficient concern by an erosion of trust and credibility that they are forcefully fighting back. One way is through a new blog, "The Briefing," which is notably not devoted to Clinton's platform for 2016,...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | May 5, 2015
    Hillary Clintons stature has been battered after more than a month of controversy over her fundraising and email practices, but support for her among Democrats remains strong and unshaken, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds. In just seven weeks, a period in which Mrs. Clinton formally began her presidential campaign, the share of people with a negative view of her jumped to 42% from 36% in last months survey, and only a quarter of registered voters said they viewed her as honest and straightforward, down from 38% last summer. But she remains highly regarded among Democrats, with 76%...

    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. "Its unwise to attack a political...

    Long before her entrance into the Twitter-verse and subsequent self-declaration as a "pantsuit aficionado," Hillary Clinton left little doubt that she was, well, a pantsuit aficionado. Tangerine, candy apple red, lemon yellowthe former Secretary of State hasn't found a juicy hued suit that she hasn't just loved. And why should she? They're her staple! Mrs. Clinton's pantsuit kick isn't anything new. Her passion for pantsuits began in the early '90s, and since she's treated the American political scene to a stylish parade of rainbow-hued suits. From her time as a Senator to her 2008 presidential campaign bid, Mrs. Clinton has...

    Around Christmas, Hillary Rodham Clinton set off on her annual holiday vacation at Oscar de la Renta's beachfront estate in the Dominican Republic.

She was also wrestling with a final decision on whether to run for president. By the time Clinton arrived in the Dominican Republic, she had largely settled on running a second campaign, but wanted to make the final determination with her husband, Bill. Friends fret over...

    Hillary Clinton joins the race for president today. If you believe the leaks from her staff, and theres no reason you shouldnt, shell do it in a video released at noon as she herself flies high above the nation in a chartered plane. She and her top advisors, all smart people, must think its a good idea. It doesnt feel like one. SNIP Barring a Jeremiah Wright-level crisis, a presidential candidate gets just two or three chances to make her case to a big audience. Her announcement is often her best shot. That Hillary passed on hers is unsettling. If...
