    WASHINGTON – President-elect Barack Obama plans to nominate Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state after Thanksgiving, a new milestone for the former first lady and a convergence of two political forces who fought hard for the presidency.

    Today's New York Post Page Six gossip column offers readers the following prima facie risible item: Not So Secret HUMA Abedin, the traveling aide who is rarely out of Hillary Rodham Clinton's sight, has been seen with bachelor Rep. Anthony Weiner on the campaign trail. Shortly before Clinton arrived for a fund-raiser Thursday night at the Hiro club in the Meatpacking District, Abedin was spotted going into the Maritime Hotel around the corner with Weiner. If they were trying to keep their affair a secret, you'd think they'd find someplace where political reporters wouldn't be walking by. "If they were...

    The stunning political earthquake in New Hampshire on Tuesday and its aftershocks are opening a wrenching fissure in Democratic politics -- raising the prospect of a bitter campaign with racial and gender undertones that could damage Democratic presidential hopes in November by alienating an important voting bloc -- African Americans or women. Though the respective celebrations over Barack Obama's Iowa win and the resurrection of Hillary Clinton's campaign at first obscured signs of trouble, it has become apparent that together they inflicted wounds that may be difficult to heal. In the days leading up to Tuesday's voting, the Clinton camp...

    DES MOINES, Iowa - Hillary Rodham Clinton delivered a campaign sermon Sunday, but didn't stick around to hear the pastor do his preaching. "We're still at church. We're still going to worship no matter what," the Rev. Lee Maxey said as the Democratic presidential candidate, her daughter, Chelsea, and their entourage left Corinthian Baptist Church, the media pack close behind. Clinton stayed for about 20 minutes and, when she spoke, noted her support for children's rights. The New York senator also highlighted a chapter in her book, "It Takes a Village," that talks about every child needing a champion. She...

    Is Sen. Hillary Clinton feeling any doubts about winning the Democratic nomination for president? Not at all. "It will be me," Clinton tells Katie Couric in an interview to air Monday on the "CBS Evening News With Katie Couric." The broadcast airs at 6:30 p.m. on WKMG-Channel 6. Couric also asked if Clinton is concerned that Oprah Winfrey could boost Sen. Barack Obama by campaigning for him in three key states. "No, at the end of the day," Clinton says. "I'm proud to have my husband support me ... with his knowledge, experience and incredible ability to vouch for me."

    WASHINGTON -- Democrats face a potentially disastrous conundrum in the 2008 presidential nominating race: Sen. Hillary Clinton, the front-runner, is the most disliked candidate among her party's contenders. Despite the strong lead she holds over her closest rivals, the New York senator draws the general electorate's highest negative ratings of anyone in the race, Republican or Democrat, when pollsters ask the voters if they have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of each candidate. A Gallup survey conducted from Aug. 3 to Aug. 5 found that 49 percent of the 1,012 Americans they polled said they had an unfavorable opinion of...

    When will these candidates learn to turn or take off their microphones. At the end of an NAACP Presidential Forum in Detroit in which fringe candidates Mike Gravel and Dennis Kucinich repeatedly upstaged the top two tiers, John Edwards approached Hillary Clinton at her podium and, perhaps forgetting that microphones were still on, can clearly be heard saying "we should think about at some point... maybe some time in the fall, we'll try to have a more serious debate with a smaller group of people." Hillary agreed with Edwards, saying "We've got to cut the numbers of these, because they...

    Obama strategist David Plouffe released a memo last week arguing that Hillary Clinton's advantages were essentially those of incumbency, that her support was thin, and that Obama should actually be considered the front-runner. Mark Penn, Clinton's chief strategist, responded today with a memo that seemed designed to bludgeon all opposition into senselessness through the sheer power of numbers (links to 40 polls showing Hillary in the lead!) Penn strongly implies another i-word is the best description of Hillary -- not "incumbent," but "inevitable." In recent election cycles, any time a candidate has had as much as 35 or 40 percent...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton said Saturday she is “appalled” by remarks made by Republican Fred Thompson suggesting that some Cuban refugees could be terrorists. Thompson, an actor and former Tennessee senator, spoke about Cuban refugees Wednesday during an appearance in South Carolina. The topic was illegal immigration and Thompson’s opposition to any legislation that does not do enough to protect America’s borders. Using Cuban refugees as an example, Thompson said, “I don’t imagine they’re coming here to bring greetings from Castro. We’re living in the era of the suitcase bomb,” Clinton, New York’s junior Democratic senator, speaking to a group of...

    Memo to Hillary Rodham Clinton: Your deputy campaign manager was right. An internal campaign memo late last month urged the Democratic front-runner to bypass first-up and momentum-generating Iowa because of Clinton's lackluster showing despite drawing large crowds - a memo she immediately disavowed. Yet, the reality from Des Moines to Dubuque lends credence to deputy campaign manager Mike Henry's assessment that for Clinton, Iowa is "our consistently weakest state." Presidential rival John Edwards has capitalized on the remnants of his 2004 presidential operation in the state, the freedom to visit in the absence of a day job and a fresh...

    One of the most important decisions that Sen.

Yet Clinton herself, backed by another faction, never wanted to apologize -- even if she viewed the war as a mistake -- arguing that...

    Pumping her fists and shouting to the rooftops, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton vowed yesterday to bring an immediate end to the war in Iraq if she's elected president. "If we in Congress don't end this war before January 2009, as president, I will," Clinton pledged in a speech to the Democratic faithful as she staked out a new position on the conflict. While she has been escalating her criticism of the war for months, yesterday was the first time Clinton spoke about what she would do about it if she wins the White House in 2008. The former first lady's...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Let's go to the audiotape. Mrs. Clinton. This is last Saturday at Des Moines' East High School. She said this about her position on the war in Iraq. HILLARY: I said that we should not go to war unless we have allies. So he took the authority that I and others gave him and he misused it, and I regret that deeply. And if we had known then what we know now, there never would have been a vote and I never would have voted to give this president that authority. RUSH: Yay! This is an outright...

    I was listening to the Sean Hannity show today and he said that Hillary Clinton, in an effort to show us her "softer" side, said she likes to "organize her closet". This raises some interesting questions.Question 1: Would this be the same closet where she found those Whitewater billing records? And if so, how good could she possibly be at this "organizing" thing?Question 2: Don't you have to have a special permit or something to handle so many skeletons?Question 3: How long before Bill ends up in there?

    Sen. Hillary Clinton has spoken up in support of her husband Bill’s defense of his anti-terror efforts, saying she’s tired of Democrats being pushed around on national security issues. "I just think that my husband did a great job in demonstrating that Democrats are not going to take this,” she said on Monday in remarks reported by Newsday. In a heated discussion with Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday,” Bill Clinton said that as president, he did more than many of his conservative critics to pursue al-Qaida, and alleged that President Bush didn’t try to stop terrorism in the eight...

    As of March 31, Hillary Rodham Clinton's Senate re-election committee had 36 people on its payroll and $19.7 million in the bank, although Republicans still haven't decided which of two relatively unknown candidates to run against her. By contrast, Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania a top Senate Republican trailing in the polls in his bid for re-election had 23 salaried staffers and a mere $9 million on hand, federal records show. Clinton's re-election efforts are dwarfing her colleagues' campaigns and prompting speculation that she already is gearing up for a presidential bid in 2008. "It's hard to say she's not running...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton is the most polarizing figure in American politics. The former First Lady turned senator is almost certainly going to run for president in 2008. Despite more than a dozen years in the national spotlight and more than a dozen unauthorized books about her, she has managed to keep many secrets from the public -- especially about her turbulent marriage and its impact on her career. There have been plenty of rumors about what Hillary and Bill Clinton did behind closed doors, but never a definitive book that exposes the truth. Bestselling author Edward Klein draws on rare...
