Senator Hillary Clinton

RIGHT NEXT DOOR: Andrew Berends, Award-Winning Documentary Filmmaker

Berends's work put him in great peril back in 2008, when he was detained by the Nigerian government while filming Delta Boys, a firsthand look at rebels in the river oil towns of that resource-rich yet vastly impoverished country -- Africa's most populous. Securing his freedom after 10 days of captivity required the intercession of New York Senators Charles Schumer and Hillary Clinton. He was never in fear for his life, he says -- but his status as a documentarian offered him no particular protection whatsoever, he realized. Delta Boys was released in 2012 having received financing and support from the Sundance Documentary Film Fund, the Gucci/Tribeca Documentary Film Fund and Cinereach. Berends's most recent film, Madina's Dream, provides an unflinching glimpse into a forgotten war as it tells the story of rebels and refugees fighting to survive in Sudan's Nuba Mountains. The film will have its world premiere next month at South By Southwest International Film Festival.

Governor Paterson, if you haven't done so already, give William Jefferson Clinton a call and see if he's interested. It is not unprecedented. Two former presidents have served in the U.S. Congress in the past.

Obama And Clinton: On Stage In New York And On Topic With Women

"While Barack was at the gym each morning, I had to get my hair done," Clinton said. "It's one of those Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire things." Zing. Apparently, being friends doesn't mean you can't also be a little bit bitter.

Last night Hillary mirrored Nixon's famous and pathetic speech. In 1952 he told a national audience he was not a quitter and appealed to voters to help decide whether he should be the vice presidential candidate. "Wire and write," he said.

Obama's politics of change is just a more subtle version of the same. He said the debate was all about "gotcha games" and "slash-and-burn politics." Then he said Clinton "looked in her element" on stage there.
