    Since launching her bid for president, Hillary Clinton has been a vocal critic of for-profit schools, pledging in speeches across the country to “crack down on predatory schools” and help students drowning in student loan debt. “If they load students up with debt for programs that don’t lead to good paying jobs, students and taxpayers should not be the only ones left holding the bag,” said Clinton in a campaign speech in New Hampshire.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Attorney General Loretta Lynch is expressing regret that she sat down with Bill Clinton while his wife is under federal criminal investigation, a chance encounter she acknowledges "cast a shadow" on the public's perception of a case bound to influence the presidential campaign. "I certainly wouldn't do it again," Lynch said of the meeting.

    ‘It is just too much to ignore,’ blasts Washington insider of Hillary’s husband.It’s Bill Clinton’s most outrageous sex scandal yet! Anti-corruption campaigners are demanding a fraud investigation into nearly $3 million in grants arranged by his charity and the federal government to a company co-owned by a beautiful divorcee identified by as his alleged “on-off” secret mistress. The ex-President’s Clinton Global Initiative — run by the charitable foundation he heads with presidential hopeful Hillary and their daughter Chelsea — pledged a staggering $2 million to an obscure Nebraska private company, Energy Pioneer Solutions.

    Bill Clinton has been getting a little more unfiltered on the campaign trail recently, and yesterday he riffed again on Bernie Sanders‘ young supporters. According to NBC News, Clinton said, “I think it’s fine that all these young students have been so enthusiastic for her opponent, and it sounds so good, just shoot every third person on Wall Street and everything will be fine.” Clinton clarified later he was joking. Sanders wasn’t laughing.

    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...

    The Clinton Foundation reported Thursday that it has received as much as $26.4 million in previously undisclosed payments from major corporations, universities, foreign sources and other groups. The disclosure came as the foundation faced questions over whether it fully complied with a 2008 ethics agreement to reveal its donors and whether any of its funding sources present conflicts of interest for Hillary Rodham Clinton as she begins her presidential campaign. The money was paid as fees for speeches by Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton. Foundation officials said the funds were tallied internally as “revenue” rather than donations, which is why...

    Ron Weddington, one of the attorneys who drafted the brief for abortion rights in Roe V Wade, wrote a private letter to President-elect Bill Clinton arguing for the state to use abortion as population control. This letter was written in 1992: “[Y]ou can start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of our country. No, I’m not advocating some sort of mass extinction of these unfortunate people. Crime, drugs and disease are already doing that. The problem is that their numbers are not only replaced but increased by the birth of millions of babies to people who...

    Bill Clinton is lending his political star power to Democrat Charlie Crist, a former Republican governor who is locked in a tight race for his old job in the nation’s largest swing state. The former president on Friday headlined a rally in Miami where he implored Democrats to defy historical trends and turn out and vote in November. “We’re great at doing what’s right if there’s a presidential election on the ballot, but we’re not nearly as good as our Republican opponents are at showing up in the midterm elections,” Clinton said. “The whole shebang is going to depend on...

This is an interesting counterfactual: What would have happened to Iraq during the Arab Spring and Syrian uprising if Saddam had endured? Clinton implicitly assumes that ISIS advancing on Baghdad is the worst possible outcome of the past 10 years, which is...

    Reporters who showed up to cover the first signing of Hillary Clinton's book tour in Manhattan on Tuesday faced strict restrictions that led to what one veteran correspondent called a "media mutiny." Barnes & Noble Corporate Communications Director Carolyn Brown addressed the assembled reporters and briefed them on the restrictions. Brown said Clinton would "hold the book and pose" before going "behind the desk" to sign copies. "No questions: She's not taking any questions," Brown said. "She's not making remarks." Many reporters griped about the situation. Print reporters were told they would be kept at least 20 feet away from...

    When I first saw the headline saying Bill Clinton was advising President Obama to “honor his commitment,” I had to laugh. The idea of Monica Lewinsky’s boyfriend as moral referee always cracks me up. Then I got to wondering. Which commitment was Clinton talking about? Is it the one Obama made to the Israeli people, that he had their backs and would never let Iran get a nuclear weapon? Or was it his promise to enforce a “red line” in Syria? Or maybe it was Obama’s promise to “never rest” until we caught the terrorists who killed our ambassador and...

Not only that, but according to CNET’s liveblog, in the midst of his remarks he digressed and started talking about gun control.

The fund-raiser will take place in Virginia at the home of former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe. More than 500 supporters will attend a reception with the two presidents, and 80 will attend a dinner at the house, the campaign official said. Tickets for the reception started at $1,000 a person and tickets for the dinner were $20,000 a person.

    President Bill Clinton and Naomi Campbell are among the rich and famous who have flown aboard convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, according to flight logs from Epstein’s private aircraft. The flight logs from 2003-05 have been filed in one of the many civil lawsuits pending against the billionaire money manager. Nearly two dozen young women have filed lawsuits against Epstein — some already settled — all alleging Epstein sexually abused them as minors at his El Brillo Way home. Epstein, 57, was released from jail in July after serving 13 months of an 18-month state sentence for soliciting...

    President Obama recently shifted authority for approving sales to China of missile and space technology from the White House to the Commerce Department -- a move critics say will loosen export controls and potentially benefit Chinese missile development. The president issued a little-noticed "presidential determination" Sept. 29 that delegated authority for determining whether missile and space exports should be approved for China to Commerce Secretary Gary Locke.

    ALBANY - Talk about Presidential pile-ons. First, President Obama sent word to Gov. Paterson that maybe he shouldn't run for election next year. Now, former President Bill Clinton is weighing in, saying Paterson is "not in good shape now" politically, but expressing confidence Paterson will do what's best for his state. Interviewed on NBC's "Today" show Tuesday, Clinton called Paterson "a good man" and said he trusted him to "make a good decision." Clinton's comments came as a new poll shows Paterson has been unable to turn his ratings around.

    Buzz is building that Chelsea Clinton will get married on Martha's Vineyard this summer. Sources on the island tell us that the former first daughter will wed Marc Mezvinsky at Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen's home in Chilmark this August. The wedding coincides with President Barack Obama's rumored vacation on the Vineyard. To prepare for the A-list affair, Danson and Steenburgen are said to be doing extensive renovations on their property. Vineyard caterer Jaime Hamlin, who helped throw one of Bill Clinton's birthday parties on the island, said there's plenty of local excitement about Chelsea's upcoming nupitals, especially among vendors...

    Bill Clinton regrets some things he said - and didn't say - on the campaign trail. But there's one thing he still can't utter: Barack Obama is ready to be President. "You can argue that nobody is ready to be President," the former President told ABC News. "You can argue that even if you've been vice president for eight years, that no one can be fully ready for the pressures of the office," Clinton said Monday during a visit to Rwanda. That's probably not what Team Obama wanted to hear from the former commander in chief, whose role in Obama's...

"The implication was that in the last few weeks since she'd been a candidate, I had endeavored to cover up records involving her. You agree with that? That's what people thought when they heard that question," Clinton said. "Here are the facts." He asserts the letter in question is five years old, involves Hillary only incidentally and requests that the National Archives speed up the release of certain documents, not slow it...

    Voters are torn between competing cravings: Change or experience in 2008? They are demanding something new, but there is comfort in the tried and true. The public's low opinion of Washington and growing concern about the direction of the country point to 2008 being a "change" election, one like the campaigns of 1974 and 1992 when people looked for a marked departure from the status quo. But the war in Iraq and the rise of global terrorism make for an anxious electorate and could turn this into a "war" election, one like the campaigns of 1944 and 2004 when voters...

Clinton, taking questions following a speech to the National Jewish Democratic Council, was asked by former Rep.

    LOOK out, Hillary - Bill is off the leash. The gobsmacking interview with Bill Clinton on "Fox News Sunday" is the first episode of reality television starring a former president of the United States. It's why God invented YouTube. Liberals love it, especially the Fox News Channel-bashing. Conservatives think it proves every insulting theory they've ever devised to encompass this gargantuan American personality. In truth, the whole performance defies reason. It was especially odd to hear Clinton complain that "Bush's neocons" faulted him for being "too obsessed with bin Laden." Really? All I ever heard from Bush's neocons - most...

    A WIFE aged 65 chopped off her dead husband’s willy in hospital — so she could keep it in a pickling jar as a souvenir. Uta Schneider used a butcher’s knife to hack off the “treasured” manhood. She wrapped it in foil and put it in a lunchbox — next to gherkins. But she was spotted by a nurse and arrested in Stuttgart, Germany. She is accused of mutilation. Uta was wed to Heinrich, 68, for 35 years. She told police: “It was his best asset and gave me so much pleasure. “I wanted to pickle it for eternity —...

    US network ABC aired "documdrama" The Path to 9/11, despite angry claims by aides to former president Bill Clinton that it unfairly tarred his record on hunting terrorists. Mr Clinton's camp complained the movie, the first part of which was shown on the eve of the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks, contained fabricated scenes and misrepresented the Democrat president as slow to chase down Osama bin Laden. Ex-Clinton aides based criticisms on early previews of the movie, which they said inaccurately portrayed actions of senior figures such as former secretary of state Madeleine Albright and former national security...

    BILL CLINTON responded furiously yesterday to an American television mini-series about the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, which portrays him as so distracted by the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal that he failed to focus on the emerging threat of Osama bin Laden. Senior Clinton Administration officials, including Madeleine Albright, the former Secretary of State, and Sandy Berger, the former National Security Adviser, also demanded yesterday that ABC either substantially edit or cancel its two-part The Path to 9/11, claiming that the drama was defamatory. The programme is also being shown by the BBC. The five-hour drama, which will be shown...

    The attack by Bill Clinton and his allies on the upcoming ABC miniseries "The Path to 9/11" is "outrageous," charges former Clinton aide Dick Morris. As NewsMax has reported, Bill Clinton through his surrogates have demanded that ABC "correct all errors" in the docudrama or pull it from the air, charging that it is a "fictitious rewriting of history" regarding President Clinton's handling of the terrorist threat. But Morris claims that Clinton's national security adviser, Sandy Berger, and the president himself "were both responsible for failing to catch or kill bin Laden on several different occasions." Morris has served Clinton...

    Dear Yahoo!: If Hillary Clinton is elected president what would we call Bill Clinton? Mark Cleveland, Ohio Dear Mark: The United States has never had a female president, so we've never grappled with this bit of etiquette. Or, to put it another way, there's no precedent for that president. That said, our first female president will be referred to as "Madam President." This is how female heads of state are referred to in other countries. We can only assume the same rules will apply here. Addressing the president's husband (if she's married) is a bit trickier. If Hillary Clinton were...

    WHEN Barbra Streisand sings, the cash register rings at Bill Clinton's favourite charity. With a gift of $US1 million ($1.3 million), Streisand has selected the former president's Climate Change Initiative as the first recipient to benefit from the millions she has pledged to charitable causes generated by her upcoming national concert tour. The gift helped make Streisand the leading contributor to Mr Clinton's effort to bring together a consortium of key cities around the world to drive down greenhouse gas emissions. Streisand recently announced that she would undertake a concert tour in October and November to help raise money for...
  • Bill [BUBBA CLINTON]and Belinda’s excellent adventure

    But Clinton’s new, er, friendship isn’t helping his wife’s presidential aims, writes eric reguly As potential girlfriends go, Belinda Stronach would rank as a true catch. She is single, youngish (she just turned 40), attractive, wealthy, impeccably well-connected and politically ambitious - glamorous in every respect. Two years ago, Time magazine listed her as one of the 100 most powerful people on the planet. The tabloids cut to the chase: they called her the "blonde bombshell" or "Bubba's blonde." Bubba, of course, is Bill Clinton. He has been photographed with Stronach (right) several times. The sightings seem to be getting...

    Excerpts of former President Bill Clinton's remarks earlier this month at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Aspen, Colo. I don't know how long they can make this old dog hunt. Ever since 2000, the 2002 and 2004 elections were about, "No matter how bad you think we are, you can't vote for them, because you can't trust them to defend the country. And oh, by the way, forget about global warming; let's talk about flag burning and gay marriage." I mean, I just don't know how long you can milk that old cow without its milk running dry. ... My...
