    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Democratic presidential contender Hillary Rodham Clinton swiped at Donald Trump on Thursday for insulting a Republican rival's looks and said she'd "love to debate him" if he prevails in the GOP race. "There is one particular candidate who just seems to delight in insulting women every chance he gets," Clinton told a cheering crowd of several hundred supporters. She named no names but was referring to Trump's remark that Carly Fiorina's face would make her unelectable. "I have to say, if he emerges I would love to debate him," Clinton said, a comment that presumed she...

  • Clintons personally paid State Department staffer to maintain server

    Hillary Rodham Clinton and her family personally paid a State Department staffer to maintain the private e-mail server she used while heading the agency, according to an official from Clinton’s presidential campaign. The unusual arrangement helped Clinton retain personal control over the system that she used for her public and private duties and that has emerged as an issue for her campaign. But, according to the campaign official, it also ensured that taxpayer dollars were not spent on a private server that was shared by Clinton, her husband and their daughter as well as aides to the former president.

    Hillary Clinton admits she’s bothered by a poll in which voters said the best one-word description of her is “liar.” “It certainly doesn’t make me feel good,” Clinton responded when asked about the poll by MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Friday. “Dishonest” was the second-most-mentioned word in the Quinnipiac University poll last month, which included Democrats as well as Republicans and independents. During the interview, Clinton refused to apologize for setting up a private email server — an issue that her presidential campaign hasn’t been able to shake.

Mr. Obama, who has overseen a series of scandals at the IRS, the Veterans Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and now the Office of Personnel Management, was asked why government didn’t seem to be working on his watch. But the president said he’s not to blame, using the IRS as an example of how what...

On Friday, lawmakers were slated to appear in congregations across the country to mark the day. ......................... “When we allow anti-Semitism to take root, our souls are destroyed,” Obama said. “It will spread.” The statements follow a wide-ranging...

    In a move that stunned the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, liberal former Vermont governor Howard Dean agreed that the U.S. should now walk away from the nuclear negotiation table with Iran. Talks in Lausanne, Switzerland over the Islamic theocracy’s nuclear program extended past Tuesday night’s deadline, with negotiators stuck on what to do with the uranium already enriched and the time it would take for Iran to convert an approved nuclear energy program into one capable of producing weapons. While these details remain unresolved, Iranian negotiators are still demanding an immediate end to international sanctions on their country. “I...

    One of the most outrageous – and prominent -- homosexual activist groups in the state was given permission at the last minute to march in the Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Later the parade organizer said he didn’t know they were a “gay” group when he let them in. This preposterous alibi has only served to outrage faithful Catholics even more. On Friday, March 13 (two days before the parade) the Boston media erupted with the story that a second homosexual group, Boston Pride, would be marching. Unlike OutVets, the other homosexual group given permission back in December, Boston Pride...

You may say Ted Cruz is a dreamer, but he's not the only one. He hopes some day—especially if you live in Iowa—you'll join him, and, well, he'll be president. That, at least, was the message during his announcement, oddly redolent of John Lennon, that he's officially seeking the highest office in the land.
