    One of the top possible candidates to lead Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign has dropped out of contention. That has left the door open to the presidential of a leading pro-abortion group to become her campaign manager should she decide to run for presidential in 2016.Clinton is a longtime pro-abortion activists, opposing any pro-life limits on abortion and backing taxpayer funding of abortions. That gels with the views of Emily’s List, which opposes even a late-term abortion ban and requires that all of the candidates it endorses support forcing Americans to fund abortions.Now, reports indicate that Emily’s List’s president may run...

    As Hillary Clinton continues to collect honoraria well into six figures for speeches and “conversations with…” public appearances, her presidential prospects are evaporating. The “inevitable” nominee is experiencing something like a bad acid trip flashback, as memories resurface of a fresh faced, first term senator once again attracting the support -- or carefully calibrated neutrality -- of people the Clinton Dynasty expected fealty from. Beneath the haughty exterior, the former secretary of state may be suspecting subconsciously that people don’t like her very much. Two new slights to the former first lady’s entitlement to the Oval Office have recently appeared....

    WASHINGTON // A Pakistani immigrant who hosted fundraisers for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is being sought by the FBI on allegations that he funneled illegal contributions to Clinton's political action committee and to Sen. Barbara Boxer's 2004 re-election campaign. Authorities say Northridge, Calif., businessman Abdul Rehman Jinnah, 56, fled the country shortly after being indicted on charges of engineering more than $50,000 in illegal donations to the Democratic committees. A business associate charged as Jinnah's co-conspirator has entered a guilty plea and is scheduled to be sentenced in Los Angeles next week. ...The case has transformed Jinnah from a political...

President Obama has been re-elected since this piece was written and Republicans secured a massive, midterm victory in 2014.

They cancel out each others’ greatest weaknesses and deprive their foes of some of their strongest arguments. Both have similar flaws and are vulnerable to the same charges: that they are too old (Jeb would be 63 on election day 2016; Hillary, 69), too out of practice (Jeb was last elected governor of Florida in 2002; Hillary was last elected senator from New York in 2006), too tied to previous presidents...

Cruz, a deeply conservative Texas Republican and likely 2016 candidate himself, called Bush a “good governor in Florida,” before warning against nominating a centrist Republican. He didn’t specifically place Bush in that category, but the implication was clear: Bush, the son of former President George H.W. Bush and the brother of former President George W. Bush, is far more moderate than the Republican base is on a host of issues including immigration and education.“If we nominate another candidate in the mold of a Bob Dole or a...

    Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew the Obama White House’s Benghazi talking points BEFORE the White House even sent them around to administration officials. Hillary Clinton used the administration’s exact talking point blaming the attack on a YouTube video before Obama’s White House speechwriter Ben Rhodes drafted it to prepare Susan Rice for Sunday morning talk shows days later. As Rhodes prepares to leave the White House before he can be called to testify in front of Rep. Trey Gowdy’s select committee on the attack, a new timeline emerges that puts the video in Secretary Clinton’s hands.

    So far it looks like Mrs. Clinton would have at least as many problems in 2016 as she did in 2008. There have generally been two reactions to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's Dec. 3 statement at Georgetown University that America should try to “empathize” with our nation’s “enemies.” One camp holds that Mrs. Clinton simply chose the wrong word to express a banal thought—that the U.S. must understand its enemies. The other camp says her State Department record demonstrates she herself lacks the empathy to know how to deal with America’s adversaries or allies. Both responses are true,...

That is not to say that today’s profile is unimportant. On the contrary, the public has never fully digested the...

    Not since U2 gave its new album to every Apple iTunes user whether they wanted it or not has music felt this much like a threat.

But the group behind the clip appears to be completely sincere. The Washington Post reports that Stand with Hillary's creators are "Daniel Chavez, a longtime Democratic political operative, and media producer Miguel Orozco." Orozco wrote the song which is a very different flavor from his previous efforts for Obama in 2008.

    Most speculation about the 2016 presidential election has taken at least one thing for granted: Hillary Clinton will run. But the Cook Political Report’s Charlie Cook recently threw some cold water on that assumption (or at least some lukewarm water); Cook estimated Clinton has only a 60 to 70 percent chance of running. I have no clue whether Cook’s estimate is right. But recent data illustrates why Clinton might balk at running: She no longer looks quite so invincible, and early indicators point toward a Republican-leaning political environment. We’re still a long way from the 2016 election, but Clinton needs...

    In late October, Hillary Clinton traveled to the Hawkeye State to campaign for Democratic Senate nominee Bruce Braley. Hillary offered some choice words about Braley's Republican opponent, Joni Ernst, who'd recently declined to meet with a major state newspaper's editorial board. Ernst's refusal to answer tough questions (besides in her many media interviews and debates, that is) was "disqualifying," the likely presidential candidate averred: Hillary Clinton on Wednesday turned up the heat on Republican hopeful Joni Ernst for skipping meetings with newspaper editorial boards, calling it a “disqualifying” factor in the Iowa Senate race. “You test your candidates. You force them to be...

    Media Matters for the Left: Summary: David Brock defected from conservatism and now runs a political empire, sliming those who threaten his pals like President Obama and Hillary Clinton. He first established, with help from George Soros, the nonprofit Media Matters for America, a fake watchdog on the press. Now he also enjoys doling out millions of dollars for political activism with his new super PAC, American Bridge 21st Century. Conservatism is a disease in need of eradication, according to Media Matters for America (MMfA), a decade-old pretended media watchdog that focuses on a unicorn known as “conservative misinformation.” Of...

    Hillary Clinton is going to have a real problem running for president as a woman of the people. And the evidence mounts by the day. First, you'll recall her hilarious claim of being "dead broke" upon leaving the rent-free White House in 2001 and confronting mortgages on two mansions. We've all heard about her scores of strictly-controlled, quarter-million dollar speeches to every convention of scrap metal dealers and the like since jumping off the sinking S.S. Obama last year. Now comes a most amazing compilation of regal needs and demands before the ex-first lady, ex-senator, ex-secretary of State will condescend...
  • Bush vs. Clinton in 2016 is the perfect way to make millennials hate politics even more

    This was not a banner year for youth voter participation. To be fair, off-year elections never are, but this year's mere 12 percent participation rate of voters under 30 is about more than midterm ennui. Rather, it's part of a larger trend of millennial disenchantment with the Washington establishment in both major parties — a trend that is primed to kick into high gear if we have a Bush vs. Clinton contest in 2016. Unfortunately, that contest is not so difficult to imagine. While Jeb Bush, brother of George W. and former governor of Florida, has yet to declare his...

    Charlie Cook, one of the most respected political experts in the country, believes Hillary Clinton has only a 25-30 percent chance of running for president, and in any case he thinks she is either “rusty” or “she has lost her fastball.” He bases that on her disastrous book tour, in which she said some very inappropriate things and also did not sell many books. The author of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report newsletter for almost 30 years also disappointed a local audience when he did not give Jeb Bush much of a chance of gaining the Republican nomination. “Bush has...

    Every year at this time, Time magazine starts teasing their “Person Of The Year” issue by releasing the “short list” of finalists. They allow readers to vote on their website for who they think should win, but much like President Obama’s reaction to the midterm shellacking he just took, the votes don’t matter – the editors decide. So who gets nominated doesn’t matter, who readers pick doesn’t matter, and ultimately who wins doesn’t matter because who cares what the editors of Time think outside of the New York/Washington, DC bubble? No one. But who makes the short list is interesting...

    mmigration has been a hot topic recently, as President Obama used executive actions to protect approximately 4 million immigrants from deportation. Friday, Hillary Clinton came out and backed the President on this controversial issue. The former Secretary of State and potential 2016 Presidential candidate says Obama's actions are in line with previous decisions made by both Democrats and Republicans, and that this is about protecting the people who deserve to be here. "It's really the lives of people who are in many instances long time residents and workers who have not only raised children, but made contributions. And in many,...
