The media message to Clinton was clear last week: You can't lose your cool when dealing with the press. You can't try to intimidate reporters. Who is allowed to do all those things? Chris Christie, for one.
Iraq is self-destructing. This led the Wall Street Journal to call for a few airstrikes and some American paratroopers to fix the problem, because we all know how well that turned out the last time, right?
Hillary Clinton supports the freedom to marry. And while she has not always supported it, that puts her in no different category than President Obama or any number of other high-profile Americans who have come to understand marriage as a fundamental right. It also puts her in the same category as me.
Many Democratic women believe Clinton deserves the 2016 nomination because she was a graceful loser in 2008 and a good soldier thereafter. Nonetheless, having Clinton and Warren debate Democratic principles would be good for the party. However, the most serious problem with a Clinton-Warren battle is not gender or ideology. It's money. Many Democrats believe that having Clinton as their presidential candidate would ensure that Dems would receive millions in Wall Street donations, and enough campaign funds in general, to triumph over any likely Republican candidate.
Elizabeth Warren, not Clinton, has taken on Wall Street, picked fights with prominent Republicans, and eloquently voiced the concerns of American around the country.
To her credit, Hillary apologizes in her memoir for voting as a member of the U.S. Senate to authorize the invasion of Iraq. Well, some mistakes, like gifts, just keep on giving.
What remains of the carcass of Hillary Clinton's new book and dubious tour, picked over by legions of fellow pundits, is the simple duty to observe the obvious -- that Hillary Clinton runs plays. Lots of them.
In these tough economic times, Hillary is in a far better position to understand and help people with their money problems than any multi-millionaire candidate who inherited his wealth and doesn't believe in the government giving any help to others... like you.
Why don't they just stop? Hillary's absolutely right on this one. As a former senior-level appointee in the White House, under two presidents and three cabinet secretaries, I came out last October, 2013.
Diana Nyad, America's most celebrated long-distance swimmer, tried and tried to cross the Florida Straits. On her fifth attempt, at age 64, she made it. If she runs for the presidency in 2016, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could echo if not exceed the scope of Ms. Nyad's achievement.
As Secretary of State, she visited 112 countries, and travelled one million miles. The book will appeal to Clinton supporters, and her many critics will harshly trash it.
A Union of 450 million can certainly do better than the process it is currently entangled in, which is shameful and harmful. The sooner it is over, the better.
All Hillary, All the Time
In the introduction to her upcoming book, Hard Choices, Hillary Clinton writes about the challenges she faced as secretary of state -- starting with "the problems we inherited, including two wars and a global financial crisis."
We weren't surprised to learn this week that an Alabama church group has erected a billboard trumpeting the importance of educating our kids using a quote from that master wordsmith... Adolf Hitler.
