  • Jet-setting Hillary Clinton breaks travel record

    Associated Press ^ | July 17, 2012
    If diplomatic achievements were measured by the number of countries visited, Hillary Rodham Clinton would be the most accomplished U.S. secretary of state in history. When her plane touched down at Andrews Air Force Base outside Washington on Tuesday morning, the former first lady and America's top diplomat completed an epic 13-day journey of 27,000 miles -- about 2,000 miles more than the circumference of the Earth -- through and over Europe to Asia and then doubling back to the Middle East.
  • What’s in Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan’s Clinton-era White House memos?

    Daily Caller ^ | 05/11/10 | Jonathan Strong & Jon Ward
    Elena Kagan, President Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court, seems to have prepared for her nomination since high school, studiously avoiding stating her views on all but a few issues. But one aspect of her record sure to receive scrutiny is her time at the Clinton White House, where she was a high-ranking aide on domestic policy issues. There, Kagan waded into a wide number of thorny issues. Rahm Emanuel, then a Clinton senior adviser, reportedly ended numerous conversations each day with: “Well, Elena better come up with some policy!” Kagan helped defend Clinton from the Travelgate scandal and worked...

    ...In 1995, lawyers for the independent counsel asked Clinton who made the decision to fire the Travel Office workers. She answered, "Well, the best I know is David Watkins and Mark McLarty, I assume, based on what I have learned since and read in the newspapers." The lawyers asked if Clinton had any role in the firings. "No, I did not," she said. They asked whether she "had any input with either Mr. McLarty or Mr. Watkins as to that decision." She answered, "I don't believe I did, no." The First Lady's statements, under oath, were patently false. And indeed,...

    The Internet is helping so-called "Hillary Haters" prepare for battle should Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton become the Democratic presidential nominee. A vast army of the self-proclaimed "haters" is repackaging old news and rumors for use on the blog-loaded Internet, the Chicago Tribune reported. Among them is Richard Collins, a wealthy Texas philanthropist, businessman and political aficionado who openly aims to destroy the presidential ambitions of the New York senator. Collins, 60, is behind StopHerNow.com, a snide Web site with a cartoon called "The Hillary Show," a satire portraying Clinton as a mean and unforgiving talk show host, the Tribune reported....

    "Clinton Fights to Keep Impeachment Taboo" headlined the Washington Post, with the following subheadline: "After Spat, Campaigns Know to Expect Swift Reprisal for any Hint of the Scandal." And the Post reported: "Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has a new commandment for the 2008 presidential field: Thou shalt not mention anything related to the impeachment of her husband." Can you believe this? The American people are now expected through all members of the media – and all election crowd questioners – to observe censorship. There are to be no questions regarding impeachment, trial and conviction for perjury and obstruction of justice...

    She had only token opposition, but Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton still spent more on her re-election — upward of $30 million — than any other candidate for Senate this year. So where did all the money go? It helped Mrs. Clinton win a margin of victory of more than 30 points. It helped her build a new set of campaign contributors. And it allowed her to begin assembling the nuts and bolts needed to run a presidential campaign. But that was not all. Mrs. Clinton also bought more than $13,000 worth of flowers, mostly for fund-raising events and as thank-yous...

    An upcoming book by a longtime Democratic insider asserts that Sen. Hillary Clinton is “ethically unfit” to hold public office. The author of the book is Jerry Zeifman, who was counsel to the House Judiciary Committee for 17 years. He was chief counsel to the committee during the Watergate episode, a role he chronicled in an earlier book, “Without Honor: The Crimes of Camelot and the Impeachment of President Nixon.” Hillary was a committee staffer at the time. And Zeifman’s new book “Hillary’s Pursuit of Power” is based in large part on his personal experiences with Hillary. A press release...

    ABC has changed its "The Path to 9/11" television special, set for a commercial-free broadcast Sunday and Monday, because of pressure over the message it carries, according to a report on a television blog site. The network heard from a number of leading political figures, many of them Democrats, who complained of alleged inaccuracies and bias in the production, according to the report in the Los Angeles Times' CalendarLive.com website. The report said the five-hour docudrama also is in the middle of an information war between a left-wing organization that wants changes made in the film and conservative blogs defending...

Clinton pointedly refuted several fictionalized scenes that he claims insinuate he was too distracted by the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal to care about bin Laden and that a top adviser pulled the plug on CIA operatives who were just moments away from bagging the terror master, according to a letter to ABC boss Bob Iger obtained by The Post.

The front-runners in the four statewide races at stake have participated in just three debates. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, facing a Democratic primary challenge from anti-Iraq war activist Jonathan Tasini, has so far refused his pleas for any such showdown. Meanwhile, state Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, who is battling Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi for the Democratic nomination for governor, has participated in just one face-to-face debate.

    I’m hearing all kinds of disturbing, though predictable, stories about a Clintonista offensive against “The Path to 9/11,” an ABC documentary written and produced by Cyrus Nowrasteh ("Into the West"), and directed by David Cunningham ("To End All Wars").  I haven’t seen it yet (although I hope to this weekend), but it is already drawing rave reviews from people who have (the piece is reviewed at FrontPage, here).   Apparently, the documentary recounts the bureaucratic bungling and lack of action against al Qaeda that was pervasive prior to the September 11 atrocities.  It is by no means, I understand, pro-Bush.  It...

Dem pollster Peter Hart summed up the segment's zeitgest nicely: "I think Americans are ready for a female president. I think they are definitely ready for Hillary Clinton." Not a discouraging word was to be heard, as 'Today' found it unnecessary to invite to the party anyone who might have a negative view of...

As of today, we have almost 50 members of congress introducing bills to stop the UAE port deal. If only they would propose as much legislation to protect US borders.

The Republican expected to step in, former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer, is a no-name in most of the state, and polls show Clinton with a commanding lead against all potential challengers....

Positioning herself for the 2008 presidential campaign, Sen. Clinton (D-N.Y.) is simultaneously broadening and narrowing her policy positions. Mostly, she just calls repeatedly for "new leadership." Hillary's policy positions are nothing new. She has nothing particularly interesting to say. In fact, Hillary's talking points are the same as 2004 Democratic presidential nominee...

    Hillary Clinton is most certainly not the scheming, bitter, partisan portrayed in Dick Morris and Eileen McGann's bestselling book "Condi vs Hillary," which the New York Times derides in a Sunday book review as "a Fox News fairy tale." Times Washington correspondent Robin Toner insists that the Morris-McGann tome is more parody than reality, dismissing their claims that Hillary is filled with "rage" at Republicans; along with the assertion that Clinton, "at her core . . . believes in income redistribution." So when Mrs. Clinton bellows - as she did at a Democratic fundraiser in 2003 - that she's "sick...

But there is a massive amount of ground to cover before she can allow visions of settling back into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. to dance in her head. First up is her Senate reelection campaign. In a development that could spice up the 2006 race, two antiwar candidates have announced they will challenge Clinton for the Democratic...

    For better or worse, Leakgate Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald has brought a new legal standard to Washington, D.C. - where he is said to be readying indictments against top White House officials based on false statements they made to investigators about a crime that may have never happened. Though such a prosecution by Fitzgerald could certainly be legally justified, allegations similar to those currently under consideration for indictment - as well as other potential crimes that are far more serious - were seldom if ever prosecuted during the 1990s. Here's a short list of potential criminal violations for which prosecutors...

But on Oct. 14, when Mrs. Clinton revealed her early 32-to-1 financial edge over her likely rival next year, another unspoken answer crystallized: Mrs. Clinton is already running for President, and next year’s election is just part of that campaign. Campaign-finance regulations encourage members of Congress to store up money in Congressional accounts for use in a Presidential race. From Mrs. Clinton’s perspective, then, her prospective Republican opponent, Jeanine Pirro, is...

    This summer, Hillary Clinton is reportedly rolling in dough. New York's junior senator has amassed a $12.6 million war chest for her re-election bid next year, raising half that amount from April to June alone. Clinton's latest campaign reports, filed on July 15 with the Federal Election Commission, became public on July 28. Her second-quarter contributions totaled $6,108,413. Combined with interest and refunds, the campaign took in a total of $6,145,305 during the period. More than $5.8 million came from individuals—65,691 in total. Those filings sprawl across hundreds of pages, so finding out exactly where her money came from in...

    You'd think by reading this e-mail that only Republicans are engaging in corruption in Congress. But with over 200 lawmakers filing late reports like Rep. Ellen Tauscher, D-Calif, reporting 21 trips and Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., reporting 20 past trips, it comes as a surprise to learn there are just as many Democrats engaging in the time dishonored practice of junkets. The biggest traveler with privately funded trips is a Democrat also. Rep. Harold E. Ford Jr., a Tennessee Democrat who is running for the Senate, holds first place as Congress' most prolific traveler since 2000. While his travel reports...

    WASHINGTON -- Members of the inner circle of high-ranking House Republicans privately agree that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York is an absolute lock for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination and will not be easy to defeat in the general election. The same lawmakers believe the Republican race to oppose Clinton is wide open but regard Sen. George Allen of Virginia as having the edge over Sen. Bill Frist of Tennessee. The consensus among them is that Allen is a better candidate than Frist and will the advantage over him in GOP primaries. The House members see little or...

    It is a cast worthy of a political thriller: a former convict whose claims about a former president and first lady spurred a criminal investigation; a prominent senator's brother-in-law, who worked undercover for federal agents looking into the case; political enemies of the former first family trying to dig up fresh dirt; and some of Hollywood's biggest stars. All these characters will share some of the spotlight beginning Tuesday in a Los Angeles courtroom, where David F. Rosen, the former fund-raising director for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, will go on trial on charges that he illegally underreported the cost of...

    I was having a fascinating conversation with a Middle East expert about the intricacies of Israel's disengagement from Gaza when I noticed the fellow growing impatient. "Enough of this," he said. "What about Hillary?" Welcome to my life. In airports, on checkout lines, at the doctor's office: "What about Hillary?" (Everywhere except in Washington, where everyone "knows" she's running.) I shrug, I try to avoid the question, I say it's too early—and it is. But you want to know too, right? So here it is. I like Senator Clinton. She has a wicked, ironic sense of humor (in private) and...

    WASHINGTON - Sen. Hillary Clinton doesn't mention the "vast right-wing conspiracy" in her latest fund-raising letter, but warns "they" are still out to get her. "We know one thing for sure, the Republicans and their right-wing allies are going to be hitting us hard with false charges," Clinton said in the letter released in recent days. "Our first belief is that the best way to deal with this kind of stuff is to fight back hard and fast," said Clinton's political adviser Ann Lewis. Clinton's letter appeared as GOP operative Arthur Finkelstein launched his long-anticipated "Stop Her Now" Web site...

    Hillary Clinton makes Ohio stop Senator teams with Cleveland's Tubbs Jones on voting reform act that would make major changes By Martin Cizmar Beacon Journal staff writer WARRENSVILLE HEIGHTS - Before the United States can encourage democracy in other nations, it needs to improve its own process, Sen. Hillary Clinton told an area audience Saturday. ``We cannot be exporting democracy to places like Iraq and Afghanistan when we don't have democracy at home,'' the New York Democrat said at an election reform forum at Warrensville Heights High School gymnasium in suburban Cleveland. Clinton joined U.S. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, D-Cleveland,...

    U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton has announced a new initiative for legislation to create a homeland security position in charge of the northern border. Clinton has encouraged the creation of a northern border coordinator for some time, but with the surprising announcement of a possible passport requirement for crossing the U.S. - Canada border, she said now may be the best time to push this legislation forward. 'I've introduced this as an amendment to existing homeland security bills,' Clinton said in a conference call on Wednesday. 'I've given speeches about it and arranged meetings with Canadian officials. 'I have been particularly...

    Sen. Hillary Clinton has been in politics long enough enough to know that polls can be misleading. So she told us yesterday that, despite a recent survey that indicated only 68% of men would be willing to vote for a female president, she thinks the time is right. "It depends on the woman," she said at the New York Women in Communications Matrix Awards luncheon yesterday at the Waldorf-Astoria. Indeed, the New York legislator may very well be that woman on the 2008 Democratic ticket. Cristiane Amanpour agreed. "I feel Americans will be ready to empower a woman." And CBS'...

    Borrowing a page from President Bush, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton told a Boston audience this week that prayer has always played a meaningful role in her life - though accounts from her days as a student radical suggest that's probably not true. "I've always been a praying person," Clinton told a crowd of more than 500, including many religious leaders, at Boston's Fairmont Copley Plaza. According to the Boston Globe, the newly religious former first lady "invoked God more than half a dozen times" as she urged society to accommodate religious people who "live out their faith in the...
