    Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former secretary of State Hillary Clinton, might make it a political trifecta for the Clinton dynasty. The former first daughter who currently works as a "special correspondent" with NBC, told that station in an interview on Monday that if she feels at some point in her life that she could make an impact on America, she would consider running for political office. "Right now, I'm grateful to live in a city and a state and a country where I strongly support my mayor, my governor, my president and my senators...

    Jeb Bush gave an impassioned endorsement of fellow Floridian Marco Rubio, advising Mitt Romney to pick him as his running mate and describing him as “the most articulate conservative elected official on the scene today,” and even spoke of the “great pride” he has for the U.S. senator from his home state. “Marco Rubio is my favorite [choice], because we have a close relationship,” the former Florida governor told Charlie Rose in an interview that aired on his PBS show Thursday evening. “I admire him greatly … He speaks with great passion about American exceptionalism. I think he would lift...

    Bush, 59, the son of a president and brother of another, pushed aside any interest in running with Romney. But he has strong feelings on whom he wants Romney to pick as a running mate. “Marco Rubio,” he said of the freshman Florida GOP senator, who served as a volunteer on Bush’s governor’s campaign. Bush described Rubio, 40, as “dynamic, joyful, disciplined and principled.” “He is the best orator of American politics today, a good family man. He is not only a consistent conservative, but he has managed to find a way to communicate a conservative message full of hope...

    Undoubtedly a team of scientists already has been dispatched to Las Vegas to study the phenomenon that tens of thousands of startled CNN viewers saw firsthand Tuesday night. For the first time in the five years since he launched his methodical, by-the-numbers, always placid, PowerPoint-inspired campaign for the presidency of the United States, an emoticon crossed Mitt Rombot's faceplate. In layman's terms, the former governor short-circuited. Even more surprising, the first person ever to dent that metallic exterior was the same one politicos had confidently written off only a few weeks ago. Yes, Rick Perry - who in two months...

    Here’s what you need to know from Monday’s (1/24/2011)White House briefing with press secretary Robert Gibbs: -- Gibbs hinted that President Obama will talk about gun rights in his State of the Union address.... -- Gibbs snuck a jab at the so-called birthers who don’t believe Obama was born in Hawaii. “I think rational people have long ago, many when they first heard and saw the president, come to the conclusion of his citizenship,” he said.

    It was a year ago this month that President Barack Obama began losing voters. In the 12 months since, he has had legislative victories that appear – especially in the case of health care – to have cost him large amounts of both political capital and political support. A comparison of the public’s views of him then and now tells us a great deal about the shape of American politics and how difficult it is for any president, even one as politically gifted as Barack Obama, to surmount the nation’s deep political and ideological divisions. [Snip] On Election Day 2008,...

    Kagan just said she wouldn't answer whether marriage was a state issue ... wait for it ... because there's a case coming down the pike. This is a load of horsepucky. It is perfectly legitimate to answer whether the federal constitution mandates man-horse marriage, even if Mr. Ed's human lover is filing a case. Then she said she wasn't going to use the 1972 case of Baker v. Nelson as precedential value -- a case that stated that the question of marriage was not a federal question under the Constitution -- and she followed that whopper up by saying "there...

    Citizenwells and Dean Haskins ^ | 12/31/08 | P. Barnett
    This is a great video that explains what a natural born citizen is using U.S. Case law, other federal laws, and founding father writings. This proves that Obama is NOT a natural born citizen, because he was born a British citizen. If you believe in preserving the Constitution please send this video link everywhere especially your Senators and Reps. before the Jan. 8 election certification. If the Congress doesn't do it's job of protecting the Constitution I pray that SCOTUS will Jan. 9 with the Berg case.

    "Get this done - Democrats, Republicans, step up to the plate and get it done," Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Monday shortly after the House of Representatives defeated a $700 billion bank bailout bill. "Understand that even as you stabilize the markets, we have to make sure that Main St. gets what Wall St. is getting," Obama said. The Illinois senator was speaking at a campaign event in Colorado.

    Anybody who doesn't think John McCain can defeat Barack Obama by focusing on real issues is somebody who hasn't seen Citizens United's latest documentary tour de force, "Hype: The Obama Effect." On the heels of successful documentaries a) answering Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 451," b) criticizing the United Nations, c) exploring with Newt Gingrich this nation's history of acknowledging God in the public square, and d) taking the fight to Hillary Clinton, CU's David Bossie now has produced a superlative, fact-heavy analysis of Barack Obama's record, rhetoric, ideology and inclinations. Granted, "Hype" includes no interviews with anybody left of the political...
