    ....Bill Clinton told a Fort Thompson, SD audience, he'd "never seen a candidate treated so disrespectfully just for running." He picked apart the "frantic effort to push her out" of the race, saying no one asked Ted Kennedy, Jesse Jackson or Gary Hart to end their presidential campaigns early. He defended his wife in the dustup over her comments about Robert F. Kennedy's assassination. "That really made my blood boil," he said.

    "A full-blooded American." That's how 24-year-old Josh Fry of West Virginia described his preference for John McCain over Barack Obama. His feelings aren't racist, he explained. He would just be more comfortable with "someone who is a full-blooded American as president." Whether Fry was referring to McCain's military service or Obama's Kenyan father isn't clear, but he may have hit upon something essential in this presidential race. Full-bloodedness is an old coin that's gaining currency in the new American realm. Meaning: Politics may no longer be so much about race and gender as about heritage, core values, and made-in-America. Just...

    This is why the Obamarama is so disheartening. When a Black REP comes down the pike he or she is demeaned by the very liberals who scream for equality and equal representation for all. Or worse, they are painted with the sell out or “Uncle Tom” (thanks Spike Lee) brush. I was still in college during the shameless Clarence Thomas hearings but even then (in my more liberal leaning days) I saw them for the “modern day lynching” that they were. People think it funny that Lt. Gov. Michael Steele has to dodge Oreo cookies hurled his way at debates....

    (2008-03-27) — Sen. Barack Obama, the Democrat presidential front runner, today reiterated his intention to stand by his controversial pastor despite his presidential rival’s remarks that she would have left the church where the Rev. Jeremiah Wright preached racially-charged, anti-American messages. “I could no more disown my hateful, racist, self-aggrandizing, crazy uncle of a pastor,” said Sen. Obama, “than Hillary Clinton could quit her deceitful, adulterous, self-aggrandizing husband. But if a purging must happen to unite this divided party, I say to my esteemed opponent, ‘You first, Hillary. You first.’” Sen. Clinton said this week that she would have quit...

    The Clinton campaign has cited newspaper accounts, including one in The Washington Post, to bolster the senator's claim that her now-famous March 1996 trip to Bosnia was the first visit to a "war zone" by a first lady since World War II. She is overlooking a trip to Saigon by Pat Nixon at the height of the Vietnam War as well as a trip by Barbara Bush to Saudi Arabia two months before the Persian Gulf War began.

If Hillary! wins the Presidential Election in November, and then manages to get Re-Elected in 2012 to another 4 year term, Chelsea, who is now 28, will be 36, and could run for the presidency for up to another 8 years of the KKKlintoons in the White House.

Add the case of the missing husband to the list of reasons why Hillary Clinton saved her political skin Tuesday. He was mostly off the radar for the past week and was nowhere to be seen during her pitch-perfect victory speech that celebrated triumphs in Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island. Anyone who thinks all that wasn't planned doesn't follow the orchestrated stagecraft of the Clintons. The former President is a double-edged sword and the subject...

    January 31, 2008 9:26 AM Former President Bill Clinton was in Denver, Colorado, stumping for his wife yesterday. In a long, and interesting speech, he characterized what the U.S. and other industrialized nations need to do to combat global warming this way: "We just have to slow down our economy and cut back our greenhouse gas emissions 'cause we have to save the planet for our grandchildren." At a time that the nation is worried about a recession is that really the characterization his wife would want him making? "Slow down our economy"? I don't really think there's much debate...

    One year after the first World Trade Center bombing, in 1994, Bill Clinton hushed up a federal report that warned of possible terrorist strikes, including how hijackers could use airliners to hit landmarks such as the Pentagon or White House. The Clinton administration never released "Terror 2000" to the public, purportedly because of concerns in the State Department it would cause panic. The Sept. 17, 2001 story by UPI Pentagon correspondent Pam Hess said the report, not only outlined the changing face of terrorism but also seemed to predict the scope and timing of the attacks carried out against the...

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- One of the teenagers responsible for beating a Holly Hill homeless man to death asked a judge to reduce his 22-year prison sentence Monday. Warren Messner and three other teens pled guilty to killing the man because they were bored, but Messner said prison is too hard. Messner is a big boy. He was 15 at the time he was brought into the woods to see the homeless man his friends had been beating. Even at that young age, he outweighed the victim, Michael Roberts, by 200 pounds when he jumped on his chest, crushing his...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - On the eve of midterm elections, Democrats criticized Republicans as stewards of a stale status quo while President Bush declared, "we're closing strong" in a final drive to preserve GOP control of Congress. "They can't run anything right," countered former President Clinton, taunting Republicans about the war in Iraq, the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and even the scandal involving the House page program that complicated GOP efforts to win two more years in power.

    It was a revival of sorts. Former president Bill Clinton's speech to nearly 4,000 Harold Ford Jr. supporters at a Memphis church Wednesday echoed a time when Democrats had the Oval Office and the nation experienced an extended period of economic growth. But the mood just before he spoke at the Temple of Deliverance Church of God in Christ evoked scenes of gospel- and hosanna-filled Sunday services. The party faithful swayed, sang, waved signs and chanted "Harold Ford" and later "We love Bill." One woman swooned and spoke in tongues. Ford stepped center-stage to introduce Clinton, looked out over the...

    Former President Clinton swooped into Northern California on Wednesday to raise campaign cash and rally support for Proposition 87 and a Democrat who is making an unexpectedly strong challenge to Republican Rep. Richard Pombo. Proposition 87 would raise $4 billion for research into alternative energy by taxing the oil pumped in California. Opponents, mostly oil companies, have raised more than $80 million to defeat it, while supporters have raised more than $50 million, making it the most expensive ballot fight in California history. "It looks to me that the opponents are spending $100 million dollars to swell the 'I don't...

    Former president Bill Clinton joined U.S. Senate candidate Harold Ford Jr. in Memphis today at a get-out-the-vote rally with six days to go in the campaign. "I think it’s time to stop and think," Clinton said to zealous supporters who filled about three-quarters of the 4,000 seats at the Temple of Deliverance Church of God in Christ. "We need somebody who cares about getting people together and getting things done and about thinking." Advertisement Harold "represents the stop-and-think crowd," he added. Clinton criticized the "ideologues" in Washington and applauded the conservatives and progressives alike who "are still searching for the...

    NEW YORK - Snacks sold in schools will have to cut the fat, sugar and salt under the latest crackdown on junk food won by former President Clinton. Just five months after a similar agreement targeting the sale of sodas in schools, Clinton and the American Heart Association announced a deal Friday with several major food companies to make school snacks healthier — the latest assault on the nation's childhood obesity epidemic. "By working with schools and industry to implement these guidelines, we are helping to give parents peace of mind that their kids will be able to make healthier...
