    DELRAY BEACH, Fla. — The last time Bill Clinton and Barack Obama spent so many hours on the campaign trail, dashing across the country to appear before adoring crowds, they were on different sides of the Democratic argument. -snip “But I want to tell you something,” he continued, waiting for the crowd to listen. “It is my professional opinion that he has done a much better job than he has gotten credit for so far. And all elections are about the future, so what is the alternative?” -snip- “If you’re a Democrat, you need to hold your head up,” Mr....

    ( – At an event celebrating Gay Pride Month on Tuesday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton encouraged State Department employees to let teenagers know homosexuality is okay. “We’ve come such a far distance in our own country, but there are still so many who need the outreach, need the mentoring, need the support to stand up and be who they are and then think about people in so many countries where it just seems impossible,” Clinton said. “So I think that each and everyone of you, not only professionally, particularly from State and USAID and every bureau and every embassy...

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton waves as she leaves Tokyo on February 18, 2009, during her first trip abroad in her new position. (Photo: State Department) ( – From the time he entered the White House, President Obama frequently has spoken about having “inherited” an economic mess, and he has been criticized for it. But the expression arguably has been used even more often by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Nine months later, it is a theme she returns to regularly at home and abroad. During her most recent trip, a six-day visit to Western Europe and Russia earlier this...

    Democrat Hillary Clinton on Thursday rejected John McCain's Republican convention address, and gave her first damning judgement on his vice-presidential running mate Sarah Palin. "To slightly amend my comments from Denver," the former first lady said in a statement as soon as the Republican nominee finished his speech. "No way, No How, No McCain-Palin," Clinton said, reprising her top applause line from last week's Democratic convention. Clinton said that only Barack Obama, who beat her in the bitter Democratic primary and his running mate Senator Joseph Biden, "offered the new ideas and positive change" that America needed.

    WASHINGTON -- There always has been something delusional about the Clintons' project to make Hillary this country's next commander in chief. Start with the balderdash so frequently exuded through the media that she is, along with her husband, a "rock star." Well, they left the White House like rock stars. They trashed the place. Yet Hillary, a physically unprepossessing lady on the far side of middle age, is not a rock star. Agreed, when she and her bodyguards enter a room, she turns a lot of heads, but so does a roadside automobile accident or the clumsy waitress who just...

    WASHINGTON - Among Billaryland's inner circle, Maggie Williams is renowned as the ultimate Hillary loyalist, fierce and unwavering in her devotion for nearly 25 years. As the First Lady's chief of staff, her office was in the West Wing, right next to Hillary's. Her title gave away the extent of her clout: assistant to the President as well as Hillary's gatekeeper and chief enforcer. Even detractors agree with her admirers that Williams would go to the mat for Hillary. A Kansas City native, Williams, 53, was a central player in the Clinton damage-control machine during the White House years. In...

    During Thursday night's Republican debate, presidential candidate Mitt Romney said something that angered me a bit... And one more thing. What -- what an audacious and arrogant thing for the Democrats to say, as Hillary Clinton did, that they are responsible for the progress that the surge has seen, by virtue of their trying to pull out so quickly. Look, the success over there is due to the -- the blood and the courage of our servicemen and women, and to General Petraeus and to President Bush, not to General Hillary Clinton. No, this time I'm not mad AT Mitt.

    In the ‘90s, Judicial Watch, an organization that seeks to hold Democrats and Republicans accountable to the law, pursued members of the Clinton administration. Larry Klayman, the organization’s founder, filed several lawsuits to expose alleged cover-ups in Commerce Department trade missions and the suicide of White House aide Vincent Foster. When George W. Bush became president, Klayman demonstrated that he could also go after Republicans. In 2002, he sued the Bush administration in an unsuccessful attempt to gain access to documents and information about Vice President Dick Cheney’s secret energy task force. Now the self-described “public interest group” may have...

    New York Daily News ^ | December 21st 2007 | MICHAEL McAULIFF Hillary Clinton Thursday hurled the dirtiest four-letter Democratic epithet to describe arch-rivals Barack Obama and John Edwards: Bush. With another four-letter word - Iraq - fading from headlines, Clinton insisted the world is still too dangerous to trust anyone less experienced than she is. She said choosing a candidate simply because they are more likable - a thinly veiled reference to Obama and Edwards - would repeat the 2000 mistake of electing George W. Bush, a then-Texas governor with a regular guy reputation and little foreign policy chops. "It is tempting anytime things seem quieter for a minute on...

    JOHNSTON, Iowa - With her political life on the line, Hillary Rodham Clinton is adopting a sweet-and-sour approach to win over an increasingly skeptical Democratic electorate in Iowa. During a pair of appearances Friday, Clinton made a powerful, emotional appeal to women voters by talking about her mother's troubled childhood. Then she quickly toggled to an attack on Barack Obama and John Edwards, suggesting she is the only contender who can't be hurt by damaging secrets. Appearing on Iowa Public Television, Clinton said she had been "vetted" by two decades of political combat and that "there are no surprises" in...

    (Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton speaks at a town hall meeting flanked by daughter Chelsea, left, and mother Dorothy Rodham, right in Winterset, Iowa, Saturday). WINTERSET, Iowa - Barack Obama had Oprah. Hillary Clinton had Mom - and Chelsea. The Democratic front-runner, who's taken a beating in the polls lately and found herself overshadowed by the queen of daytime TV Saturday, turned to her 88-year-old mother, Dorothy Rodham, her daughter, Chelsea, and a phalanx of other notable women to beat back the Oprah assault on her female voter base. "We're getting close to the caucuses," Clinton told 100 people gathered...

    Listening to liberal politicians attempt to speak about Biblical Christianity is something akin to quizzing porn stars about the finer points of acting. ...And if you're last name is Clinton you may qualify for both - but I digress. They know it's not their best subject. They know they have no clue about it's authenticity, but the leading Democratic candidates continue to believe that they can somehow trick those who do into thinking they are one of us. We've already been panderbyted by both John Edwards and Barack Obama about the Gospel according to liberalism but this week it was...

    Clinton is neither secular nor awkward about her faith. She cites her Methodist upbringing as a formative experience, with its emphasis on "preaching and practicing the social gospel." As a teenager in 1962, she heard and met the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in Chicago -- what would have been a profound experience for a spiritually alert youth -- and was later politically radicalized by his assassination. The likely Democratic nominee participates regularly in small-group Bible studies and is familiar with the works of Reinhold Niebuhr, Paul Tillich and Dietrich Bonhoeffer -- the theological heroes of mainline Protestantism (and of...

    The public-interest group Judicial Watch has released the results of a nationwide poll that indicates nearly half of likely American voters are worried about corruption in the White House if Hillary Clinton becomes the next U.S. president. Judicial Watch conducted the poll in partnership with Zogby International. A total of 38 percent of those polled were Democrats, 36 percent were Republicans, and 26 percent were Independents. Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton says the results of the poll were quite revealing. "Forty-five percent [of the respondents] are concerned or very concerned about Hillary Clinton corruption and that there will be high...

    Asked if she believed homosexuality was immoral, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton declined to answer the question in a television interview this morning and said it was for “others to conclude.” General Peter Pace, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said in a recent interview that he personally believed homosexuality was immoral and that this view was a factor in his opposition to gays serving openly in the military. Mrs. Clinton, a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, supports allowing gays to serve, which would amount to a change in her husband’s “don’t ask don’t tell” policy. She has...

    Stephen Crowley/The New York Times Hillary Rodham Clinton visited Capitol Hill in 1994 in an effort to lobby support for a universal health care plan for which she was sharply criticized. WASHINGTON, June 9 — No policy issue has bedeviled Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton more than health care. Ever since the collapse of her proposal for universal coverage in 1994, critics have used the issue as prime evidence in their case that she is, at heart, a big-government liberal with a zeal for social engineering. But now, as Mrs. Clinton heads into her re-election campaign and a possible bid...
  • Senator Clinton Shafts Middle Class

    YONKERS -- Senator Clinton has shafted middle class Taxpayers in New York by voting against Alternative Minimum Tax relief contained in the President's tax cut extension bill. Under the AMT, taxpayers with incomes over $60,000 lose deductions. By raising the exemption from the AMT, the tax cut extension bill which Senator Clinton opposed prevented a $31 billion tax increase on 15 million middle class families. The bill prevented $2 billion in tax increases on 900,000 New York families. The bill also extended the cuts on capital gains and dividends which are especially helpful to New Yoke since Wall Street is...

    Since 1993, when she tried to become the tzarina of government-sponsored health care, I have suspected that Hillary Clinton wanted to become the President of the United States. Since the mid-1990s — when one of her best friends, Judith Hope, moved from Little Rock to New York, and then “suddenly” became the chairman of the NY Democratic Party — I was confident that the fix was in. Since 1999, when she bilked the taxpayers in a phony “listening tour” scam to launch her campaign, there was no doubt in my mind that Mrs. Clinton was going to use a run...

    Former-President Bill Clinton insisted yesterday that he was in complete agreement with wife Hillary's objections on the Dubai ports buyout - even though he reportedly advised the Dubai royal family on how to make the deal fly. "I supported Hillary's position, and the news reports to the contrary were wrong,” Mr. Clinton claimed while speaking in Harlem yesterday. What about that phone call Joe Lockhart, his former White House scandal spokesman, made to the Dubai Ports World chairman to lobby for the deal? (The call was made to Chairman Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, according to congressional testimony by DPW CEO...
