    Michelle Obama’s East Wing staff suggested she would take it slow once she started campaigning, emphasizing her nonpolitical “mom-in-chief” role and her noncontroversial fight against childhood obesity. Instead, the first lady made her political presence felt immediately Wednesday, delivering an impassioned and overtly religious pitch for Democrats to defend her husband’s legacy in the midterm elections. “We got this man in office; we’re all proud of Barack and his accomplishments,” Obama told syndicated radio host Tom Joyner before embarking on a week of campaign events that will take her to Wisconsin, Illinois, Colorado, Washington and California on behalf of endangered...

    TROY, N.Y. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton told graduating students at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute today they shouldn't let politics interfere with the pursuit of science. In her commencement speech, Clinton said she fears the proud American tradition of free inquiry in both science and democracy has been threatened in recent years. She said interference in publicly funded science, the suppression of scientific evidence and the politicization of scientific advisory panels are all on the rise. The New York senator said -- quote -- "At the root of democracy is free inquiry, open debate and dialogue. "What happens in a scientific laboratory,...

    WASHINGTON -- Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton called Tuesday for tougher punishment against Syria, saying the country was aggressively supporting terrorism in the "dangerous neighborhood" of the Middle East. In lambasting Syria, Clinton joined a growing chorus of officials in Washington urging the United States to take a harsher stance against that country following a Feb. 14 bombing in Beirut that killed the former premier of Lebanon.

    TAFT, Calif. - Five years ago, Aaron Tonken was riding high, hobnobbing with Hollywood celebrities and helping to raise millions for the Senate bid of first lady Hillary Clinton. Tonken's life these days is neither flashy nor frenetic. Since September, he's been in a federal prison north of Los Angeles serving a 63-month sentence for mail and wire fraud. The abrupt end to Tonken's career as an organizer of charity fund-raisers delivered a financial blow to the foundations he worked with and a public relations headache for the entertainers he accused of profiting from ostensibly charitable events. Now, however, there...

    I commend Senator Boxer from California for joining with members of the House, most particularly Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs-Jones, in raising the objection because it does permit us to air some of these issues, something that I believe is necessary for the smooth functioning of our democracy and the integrity of the most precious right of any citizen, namely, the right to vote. As we look at our election system, I think it's fair to say that there are many legitimate questions about its accuracy, about its integrity, and they are not confined to the state of Ohio. They are questions...

    A California businessman who says he spent nearly $2 million on an event that helped finance Senator Clinton's 2000 campaign abruptly changed his legal strategy and may be moving closer to a plea bargain on securities-fraud charges he is facing. Peter Paul, 56, recently dumped a lawyer provided by a litigious conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, and hired a former prosecutor as his defense attorney. At a hearing today in federal court at Long Island, Paul's new counsel is expected to renew the former executive's request to be released on bail.

    Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (NY) today called for Senate support of two bills designed to reduce the burden on immigrants to the United States who send money to family members in their native lands. The Senator made her remarks during the unveiling of a report on these Foreign Remittances entitled "All in the Family." The report was produced by the Inter-American Dialogue, a Washington D.C. based organization that focuses on issues affecting the Western Hemisphere. "Unlike tourism dollars and export revenues, these remittances go directly to segments of the general population that need the most help," said Senator Clinton. "This...

    Hillary Clinton dons baker's smock for charity Published: Thursday, February 19, 2004 YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton donned a white baker's smock, sprinkled some crushed walnuts on a freshly frosted carrot cake and campaigned for the federal programs that have helped make the Greyston Bakery in Yonkers a success story.

It is expanding by about half, to 100 workers, with a move next month...

I thank the Senator very much. I am proud to rise in support of the bipartisan climate change legislation offered by Senators LIEBERMAN and MCCAIN. I will be brief in my remarks, because I believe that the sponsors of the amendment have eloquently made the full case for the legislation. But this is a very important issue, and I did not want to miss the opportunity to voice my support. Climate change is greatest environmental challenge that we face. Its effects will unfold over decades and will touch every...
