    Top barrister: Amal Alamuddin is defending a suspected Libyan war criminal accused of masterminding the Lockerbie bombing Having won the heart of the world’s most eligible bachelor, Amal Alamuddin is getting used to being the centre of attention. But George Clooney’s fiancée has also hit the spotlight for a very different reason – defending a suspected Libyan war criminal accused of masterminding the Lockerbie bombing. It has been just a week since her engagement to the Hollywood heart-throb was revealed but it is already clear that the high-flying barrister is not about to let her career take a back seat....
  • Why don’t South Carolina conservatives like Lindsey Graham?

    Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) faced his most vocal critics this weekend at the annual South Carolina Republican Party convention, though aides and state party leaders say this year’s criticism of the senator didn’t match the opposition he’s faced in previous years. As they’ve done several times in the past, a few hundred tea party-inspired activists attempted to seat a convention chairman who would help them remove Graham from the party, but their efforts failed when party leaders declined to recognize their motions and moved on with the day’s proceedings. Adding to the weekend drama, a recent Winthrop Poll found...

    South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham surprised many this morning on Meet The Press when he said he liked some of the provisions in President Obama’s expected budget. President Obama is expected to release have dinner with several Republican legislators next when he releases his new budget. Graham, who has shown openness to raising billions in new revenues in exchange for some austerity measures, is expected to be among the Senators that join the president for the dinner. One must remember, though, that the president’s budget is has no real teeth and is a blueprint on where to spend in a...

    WASHINGTON — President Obama went out for a round of golf Saturday afternoon, his second weekend in a row to hit the links at a course at Joint Base Andrews. The president golfed with White House aides Marvin Nicholson, Joe Paulsen, and Michael Brush. Last Saturday, the president played golf at the same course with Nicholson, Brush

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama had the kind of Saturday that many men dream of having, playing golf and attending a college basketball playoff game. Midday found him at Joint Base Andrews, the Air Force base on the outskirts of Washington where Air Force One is kept. He teed off at one of the base courses with friends Marty Nesbitt, Marvin Nicholson and Michael Brush. After a couple of hours, enough to probably play nine holes, Obama had his motorcade whisk him to the Verizon Center sports arena, where Syracuse defeated Marquette to advance to the semifinals of the...

    Via Mediaite, here’s why I said in the McCain post that I didn’t share Mollie Hemingway’s receding cynicism. I trust that Paul would have the same objections to drone policy under a Republican president. I trust that Mike Lee would too. Beyond that, things get iffy. Glenn Greenwald has a point here: Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald "Bush-cheerleading conservatives who "stand with Rand" = Rand-mocking progressives who pretended to care about civil liberties under Bush" Graham’s the right guy to challenge Paul because he is, in his own way, as nonpartisan on executive counterterrorism power as Paul is. If I understand him...

    There were several articles which mentioned Reggie Love disembarking Air Force One after Obama upon his return to DC...yet all mention of such has now been scrubbed from the web (except for a few blog notes).I guess Obama decided the time wasn't right to "come out."

    PALM CITY, Fla. -- Faced with a long weekend in an empty White House, President Barack Obama figured he needed a getaway, too, so he put together a golf outing with some buddies. Not at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland or at Fort Belvoir in Virginia, two Washington-area military posts where he's a regular on their courses. Instead, he went south, to Florida, to spend the long Presidents Day weekend staying and playing at the Floridian, an exclusive and secluded yacht and golf club on the state's Treasure Coast. He arrived Friday night after a speech in Chicago and wasn't...

    George Clooney has signed on for another special guest appearance as the Barack Obama re-election campaign takes its summer fundraising tour across the Atlantic in pursuit of Euro-cash. The Obama campaign posted an invitation on its website Friday revealing that the presidential pal-in-chief will appear at a pair of Americans Abroad for Obama events Aug. 27 in Geneva, Switzerland. Clooney, who usually spends summers at his villa on Italy’s Lake Como, made a similar appearance across the Swiss border on behalf of then-candidate Obama during the run-up to the 2008 general election. Charles Adams, co-president of the campaign’s European outreach...

    -snip- New Line/Warner Bros’ Rock Of Ages (3,470 theaters) is falling to earth with a thud. Which Hollywood expected because the pic had been tracking poorly for weeks (and even went down at one point week to week). The studio felt the 1980s period piece was a hard sell to younger moviegoers. I suspect the problem was casting. Russell Brand has been repellant to moviegoers, while Tom Cruise as iconic rocker proved just too incredulous for audiences.

    At a gay rights dinner last year in New York City, when President Obama listed gay-friendly policies he had enacted, hecklers shouted, "Marriage!" At a similar event Wednesday night in Beverly Hills, nearly a month after the president embraced gay marriage, there was no heckling. Instead, 600 supporters at the LGBT Leadership Council event rose to their feet as one, chanting, "Four more years!" L.A.'s gay community turned out in force to celebrate the man who has been dubbed the nation's "first gay president."

    Politico44 ^ | 5/26/12 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN
    President Obama departed Joint Base Andrews following a round of golf Saturday afternoon, but the press pool tracking his every movement got left behind as the president headed back to the White House. The vans carrying the reporters and photographers who rotate through following the president are generally at the tail end of his motorcade but, on Saturday, they were about 10 minutes behind Obama's car. The protective pool, as it's sometimes called, is meant to follow the president as he moves from place to place, to convey news to other journalists and to, in the case of catastrophe, convey...

    He may be the leader of the free world, but he still takes a moment to tuck his wife in at bedtime. First Lady Michelle Obama revealed that tidbit and other details from the couple’s personal life in a People magazine interview that hit newsstands Friday. "We have a ritual where he tucks me in, because I'm usually in bed before anybody," the First Lady spilled. "He'll come and turn the lights out and give me a kiss, and we'll talk. He's like, Ready to be tucked? I'm like, Yes I am.'"

    President Obama is banking on his endorsement of gay marriage to fill his campaign coffers. His team is selling a slew of LGBT merchandise on, just days after his historic backing of same-sex couples tying the knot. The items include “I'm out for Obama" T-shirts, beer koozies that read "LGBT for Obama" and even baby onesies with messages like "My two moms support Obama.” The items cost anywhere from $10 to $40.
