    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Former House Democrat Pat Schroeder predicts that Hillary Clinton would face "a lot of sexism" if she decides to run for president in 2016. Schroeder served in the House from 1973 to 1997 as the first woman elected to Congress from Colorado. Now 73, she appears in "Makers: Women in Politics," a film airing this fall on PBS. She was asked about Clinton on Tuesday at a summer TV critics' meeting. "She's still going to have a lot of sexism," Schroeder said. "I can't believe there's people saying can she still be a grandmother and...

    An email from Monica Lewinsky was omitted from the Clinton library’s latest document dump for privacy reasons. Every two weeks this spring, the National Archives has been releasing documents from Clinton’s presidency through The William J Clinton Presidential Library & Museum in Little Rock, Ark. Included in a list of withdrawn/redacted documents, midway through a batch of documents concerning Gen. Wesley Clark, is an email from Monica Lewinsky’s Pentagon email address. Vaguely referenced as concerning a “medical record,” the omitted email is listed as four pages long.

    In Kentucky, Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is running even or slightly behind in polls for reelection, despite the state’s heavily Republican lean. The central dynamic of the race concerns whether the Democratic challenger, Alison Lundergan Grimes, can distance herself from President Obama. McConnell is painting Grimes as Obama’s puppet, while Grimes is instead attaching herself to Bill and Hillary Clinton, who are far more popular in the state. Why is that? Here, in today’s Washington Post, is an odd passage explaining Clinton’s popularity vis-ŕ-vis Obama: While President Obama’s approval rating in Kentucky is in the mid-30s, Bill Clinton...

    Love him or hate him, Bill Clinton is probably the most charismatic former president still around. He also seems to, somehow, be the star of the show wherever he goes. Monday's presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C. was no different. During a performance of "My Country 'Tis of Thee" by "American Idol" champion Kelly Clarkson, Clinton's head popped out from the crowd as he photobombed her. The internet instantly lit up with people passing the photo around and attaching their own jokes to it.

The two men stood side by side Tuesday as Clinton introduced Romney before the GOP candidate's speech to Clinton's annual global conference in New York. Clinton recalled working with Romney to save AmeriCorps, and praised the former Massachusetts governor's efforts to persuade fellow Republicans to support the national service program. Romney, taking the podium, returned the compliment. "If there's one thing we've learned in this election season,...

In early excerpts of the former president’s remarks, Clinton amplifies on the message Democrats delivered on the first day of the convention Tuesday, describing Obama as a champion of the middle class and Republicans as hostile to the interests of regular people. “In Tampa, the Republican argument against the president’s reelection was pretty simple:...

"I said, 'How you doing, Jerry?' He said, 'This is tough.' I said, 'Yes, but I think you're doing the right thing. You have to live by the laws of economics and the money you've got.'

    Inviting Bill Clinton on campaign trail carries risk, reward for ObamaBy Josh Lederman - 04/09/12 05:25 AM ET President Clinton is willing to do whatever he can to get President Obama reelected, according to his former aides. It’s just a matter of whether Obama wants the help. Bringing Clinton on the campaign trail could do wonders for Obama’s appeal among disenfranchised blue-collar voters and reluctant donors, strategists say. But it could also pose risks for Obama, who could be overshadowed by the effusive former president. “President Obama would be wise [to use him], and I’m sure he would welcome President...

    Bill Clinton plays politics with Timothy McVeigh. Liberal Democrats and their friends in the media have tried just about everything to dismiss and discredit the tea-party movement. They've accused Americans who are anxious and angry about a rapidly encroaching government of being racists, extremists, birthers, pawns of a corporate "AstroTurf" effort—and, now, potential Timothy McVeighs. No less a figure than Bill Clinton seized on the occasion of the Oklahoma City bombing's 15th anniversary to lecture tea-party activists, first in a speech last week to the Center for American Progress Action Fund, then in a Monday New York Times op-ed. "Have...

    U.N. Special Envoy to Haiti Bill Clinton was stunned by the devastation. The former president remained hopeful that Haiti can recover and vowed to fight for more aid. PORT-AU-PRINCE -- As the United States moved to take over Haitian government-run aid distribution centers Monday, a teary-eyed former President Bill Clinton saw first-hand the destructive scars of Haiti's biggest natural disaster.

    Former President Bill Clinton will visit Boston on Friday to lend his support to US Senate candidate Martha Coakley, joining the Democratic nominee for a rally at the Fairmont Copley Plaza. The event is a sign not just of Clinton’s continued support for Coakley - he endorsed her during last month’s primary - but also that Democrats are taking seriously the race between her and Republican Scott P. Brown. Clinton, who recorded a phone message sent to 500,000 potential voters on the eve of the primary, will appear with Coakley and US Senator John F. Kerry at the rally, which...

    Nebraska Democratic holdout Sen. Ben Nelson has declared "not sufficient" the compromise abortion language offered to him, and is digging in by raising numerous other objections to the Senate health bill. His fellow home-state Senator, Republican Mike Johanns, joined a GOP press conference today railing against the legislation, reading aloud condemnations from Nebraska's governor, also a Republican, to intensify the pressure on Nelson. He appears not to need it. Former President Bill Clinton, who a few weeks ago wowed Democrats in their Senate luncheon chamber, clearly agrees with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's argument, and disagrees with Howard Dean's. He called...

    A bid by Florida cops to probe whether Tiger Woods mixed a powerful potion of painkillers, sleeping pills and booze before he crashed near his home was rejected by a Sunshine State district attorney, according to a newly disclosed document. The report states Woods had access to the sleeping medicine Ambien and the painkiller Vicodin. The state attorney for Orlando, Fla., brushed off a subpoena request by the Florida Highway Patrol to obtain blood tests from Health Central Hospital, where Woods was taken after the Nov. 27 crash, according to the subpoena request obtained by the Herald.

    Former president Bill Clinton planned a rare visit to the US Senate Tuesday to unite Democrats divided on President Barack Obama's push for a sweeping overhaul of US health care. Fifteen years after his own dramatic push to remake the US system went down in flames after a strong start, Clinton was to address Democrats behind closed doors at their weekly policy luncheon to give Obama's plans a shot in the arm. The former president "is going to help energize our caucus to accomplish the three goals" of bringing health care costs down and covering every American without breaking the...
  • Clinton's endorsement of Newsom a slap at Brown?

    When former President Bill Clinton officially endorses San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom for governor today, the question on many people's minds will be: Is this about Newsom, or Jerry Brown? Clinton and Brown's decades-long feud is, after all, one of the Democratic Party's nastiest, starting when they both sought the party's presidential nomination in 1992. Seventeen years later, the former California governor has opened an exploratory committee for a possible gubernatorial run, and Clinton's endorsement has set off speculation about a redux of the fight. Newsom discounted such talk in an interview with The Bee conducted shortly after the endorsement...

    Bill Clinton on Lewinsky Affair: "I Cracked"Posted by Brian Montopoli September 21, 2009 3:14 PM (CBS)During a series of secret interviews in the White House with author and historian Taylor Branch, then-President Bill Clinton said his affair with Monika Lewinsky began because he "cracked" as a result of personal and political pressure. "I cracked; I just cracked," Clinton said, according to Branch, USA Today reports. The former president reportedly blamed the death of his mother, combined with the Democrats' losses in the 1994 midterm elections and the Whitewater investigation, for putting him in a state of mind that left him...

    In his struggle to change the nation's health care system, Barack Obama again faces certain obstacles that almost stopped his amazing march to the presidency. Aside from the Washington chattering class and the right-wing media, which always oppose progressive reform, Mr. Obama is losing his grip on the middle class and working families in swing states. He is losing Democratic senators and members of Congress in places like Florida and Arkansas. He is losing the propaganda war with his professorial style of explanation. So perhaps he should stop trying to walk this treacherous path alone. Perhaps the time has come,...
