  • John McCain: Warm Remembrances of Roads Not Taken, or Taken and Now Abandoned

    Warm remembrances of Sen. John McCain have been filling the political air since his death last weekend. They'll continue through his memorial service in Phoenix, his funeral Saturday at Washington National Cathedral and his interment at the Naval Academy cemetery in Annapolis on Sunday. Praise has been voiced by longtime political foes, admiration from recent detractors and recollections of his (self- and other-) deprecating wit from those long close to him. Why this outpouring of admiration for a politician who was far from universally admired by members of his own party and whose positive commentary went suddenly silent when he...
  • Hillary Clinton’s Most Dangerous Opponent Isn’t Donald Trump (It's The Media Isn't Biased Enough!)

    Over the past few days, much has been written and said about Wednesday night’s MSNBC “Commander-in-Chief Forum,” which ostensibly pitted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, but which, in reality, featured a much more daunting foe for the first woman nominee for president. Much of that analysis rightly scapegoats moderator Matt Lauer, who not only obsessed about the now-discredited “Emailgate” controversy, but by all accounts gave Donald Trump a free hand to lie, and utterly failed to challenge him on key areas. It’s hard to know where to begin with Lauer, who not only...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- There have been millions of words, decades of video and reams of commentary devoted to the story of Bill and Hillary Clinton. It's been dissected, defended and decried at kitchen tables and on cable news, in tabloids and classrooms. But on Tuesday night, as millions of voters watched and with the political stakes as high as they've ever been, the former president tried to make sense of it all and make the case for his wife, the newly minted Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. "In the spring of 1971, I met a girl," he began. The former...

    The UAW today endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, citing her support for UAW members, her lifelong commitment to the job security of American families, and her ability to unify and win in November. “Hillary Clinton understands our issues on trade, understands the complexities of multinational economies and supports American workers, their families and communities,” said UAW President Dennis Williams. Now is a time for unity, a time to focus on what lies ahead in November. Bernie Sanders has brought to this campaign a dialogue that has been needed for far too long. He has been, and remains, a great friend...

She first came out as pansexual — which is distinct from bisexual because it defines an individual who is attracted to various gender identities — in 2012 after first being elected, noting that she’d dated transgender and "gender-queer" people. But it had been reported that she came out as lesbian first and then later came out as...

    The White House legend that is Barack and Michelle Obama’s romance is heading to the screen. Southside With You, a drama in the vein of Before Sunrise, chronicles the summer 1989 afternoon when the future President of the United States of America wooed his future First Lady on an epic first date across Chicago’s South Side. Get On Up’s Tika Sumpter will play Michelle Obama (née Robinson), while the search is on to cast the young Barack. As Presidential lore has it, the date took some convincing. Obama, then an idealistic first-year Harvard Law student, took a summer job as...

    "I did see 'The Butler,' and I did tear up," said the president during an interview with radio personalities Tom Joyner and Sybil Wilkes. "I teared up just thinking about not just the butlers who have worked here in the White House, but an entire generation of people who were talented and skilled, but because of Jim Crow, because of discrimination, there was only so far they could go. And yet, with dignity and tenacity, they got up and worked every single day, and put up with a whole lot of mess because they hoped for something better for their...

    Hiring news rookie CHELSEA CLINTON for NBC’s “Rock Center with Brian Williams” has created an ugly behind-the-scenes backlash, insiders say. The former first daughter is the focus of “intense jealousy” among the show’s female cor­respondents, including news veterans Ann Curry, Natalie Morales, Kate Snow and Mer­edith Vieira, sources say. While the women are honored to work alongside anchorman Williams, legendary “Nightline” host Ted Koppel, former CBS newsman Harry Smith and NBC Sports anchor Bob Costas, “the daggers are out for Chelsea,” an insider told The ENQUIRER. “Chelsea has been hired as a ‘special correspon­dent’ with no TV news experience whatsoever,...

    WASHINGTON - Like many members of Congress, Rep. Michele Bachmann has been a fierce critic of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, blaming the government-backed loan programs for excesses that helped create the financial meltdown in 2008. And like millions of other home purchasers, Bachmann took out a home loan in 2008 that offered lower costs to the borrower through one of the federally subsidized programs, according to mortgage experts who reviewed her loan documents. Just a few weeks before Bachmann called for dismantling the programs during a House Financial Services Committee hearing, she and her husband signed for a $417,000...

Having sat with him for two years is the White House and watched him -- watching him work through some very difficult things with a lot of intelligence and grace, equilibrium. I, I have great admiration for him," Obama's chief campaign strategist told CNN. "The people who were participating in the campaign in 2008 weren't involved n some sort of cult of personality. It wasn't just about Barack Obama, it was the country and they cared deeply about this country," Axelrod said in his answer a question about how to...

    House Speaker John Boehner has broken into one of the most exclusive groups in Washington — the small circle of old friends and administration officials President Barack Obama has invited for a round of golf. Boehner, who sports a fairway tan and an 8 handicap, will tee off with Obama June 18 — marking one of the only times the leader of the free world will have played with a Republican or a fellow elected official and the first time he will have played with a sitting member of Congress.

    Hero Builders An Oxford company has released an action figure inspired by the capture of Osama bin Laden. Navy SEALs have become national heroes since news broke that they took down Osama bin Laden, so it’s fitting that the newest action figure from a Connecticut company is a fierce looking President Barack Obama as a SEAL. The minute Obama said late on the night of May 1 that the U.S. had found and killed bin Laden, Emil Vicale knew which his action figure company’s would make next -- Rambama. On Wednesday morning, Hero Builders released the Obama SEAL Team 6...

    SECRETARY OF STATE Hillary Rodham Clinton is more popular than President Obama, the onetime rival who grudgingly dubbed her “likable enough’’ on the New Hampshire campaign trail. According to a new Gallup poll, 66 percent of those surveyed have a favorable view of Clinton, giving her a higher rating than the president (54 percent favorable) or vice president (46 percent favorable). The Gallup poll was conducted from March 25 to 27, while the United States was actively involved in its controversial Libya mission; other polling is even more negative about Obama. As Libya goes, so goes Obama, and Clinton, too....

During my adult life, lunatics with guns or bombs have changed American history more than any election: President John F. Kennedy, Sen. Robert Kennedy, Rev....

    President Obama will sit down with Fox News host Bill O'Reilly in an interview set to air on Super Bowl Sunday. A Fox News spokeswoman confirmed reports that the president would sit down with the conservative pundit for a pre-game interview before the Super Bowl on the Fox broadcast network. The sit-down will be a moment of outreach between Obama and the network, which his administration has clashed with during the past two years over the network's coverage of the White House. It's also the second straight year Obama will use one of the most watched television events of the...
