“It took a Clinton to clean up after the first Bush and I think it might take another Clinton to clean up after the second Bush.” – Hillary Clinton The applause after that line stopped the debate. Wolf simply decided it was time to go to break. Clinton commanded moment after moment. Issue after issue [...]

Wolf tries to bait Clinton. She laughs. The audience howls. –break– Obama: No to censorship on violent entertainment. Parents need to parent. Spouse question to Clinton: “I’m running for president and I’m running this campaign. I want the campaign to stay focused.” Wolf: People think Clinton – Obama is the “dream ticket.” Would you consider [...]
5:49: I’ve been fighting for immigrants long before you came to the Senate. Snap! Clinton is against drivers licenses for illegal immigration. It puts people in danger. Obama: At this point she’s got a clear position, but it took a while. .. … Clinton: We agree, but let’s correct the record. Clinton supported her governor. [...]
“Well, I’m very proud of his promoting my candidacy, and I’m very happy that he is able to travel as widely as he has been, along with my daughter,” Clinton told reporters while campaigning in Little Rock, Ark. “But this is my campaign, it is about my candidacy,” she said. Hillary Clinton: ‘This Is My [...]
bumped There’s a reason Teddy Kennedy backed Obama, and it has nothing to do with Bill. Frankly, I knew this from the start. Anyone knowing the history of the John F. Kennedy legacy, especially where Lyndon Johnson is concerned, saw this coming a mile away. I’ve been trying to get the story before mentioning it, [...]
I’d like to see Obama and Clinton really go at it on the issues. But they should do it with the facts. Yesterday in Denver, Obama said something interesting in his stem winder stump speech. “It’s time for new leadership that understands that the way to win a debate with John McCain is not by [...]
Sean Hannity is channeling this Jake Tapper headline: Bill: “We Just Have to Slow Down Our Economy” to Fight Global Warming. That’s how this works on wingnut radio and in the traditional meda. This is Bill Clinton’s actual quote: “But if we did that, you know as well as I do, China and India and [...]
The above video comes from Barack Obama’s official presidential website. It’s meant as proof that his “present” votes on choice were the right thing to do and supported by Illinois NOW. However, the truth is quite different from what Lorna Brett is saying in the video. How do I know? Just recently I’ve traded emails [...]
The Presidential Library of George, and Bill’s Foundation All of these libraries are obscene, the money, the me-me-me idea of them, all of it. Now I know each president has to have one. It’s tradition. But it really now has gone over the top, mainly because we don’t know how they’re funded. After all, we [...]
The Anybody But McCain faction is in free fall and it’s only going to get worse from here. After all those hours of venting, the head blowhard was scrambling. After Florida was called for McCain, with the his radio ego on the line, the guy simply had to come up with something good, really, really [...]
Case closed. I’ve already proven this (also see here and here), but the videos above, via Mark Ambinder (don’t forget “The View’s” Whoopi verdict), add the final gavel on this case. Body experts are even weighing in now, with one guy on Fox “News” busting Claire McCaskill for smirking when Obama gave his second excuse, [...]
by Paul Szep Talk about a comeback. It’s the mother of all comebacks, baby. Don’t miss Ann Telnaes on McCain today! Oh, and did you see Mr. 9/11 endorsing “Mack,” as in “Mack is back,” today? Unity and bliss, at long last. Mr. Toe Sucker, now reformed I’m sure, gets to the heart of it: [...]
The clip above speaks for itself. There’s nothing to add. And here’s the quote of the day, from January 2001, via ABC’s Jake Tapper: “The proof in the pudding is looking at the treatment of the other Bush nominees,” Obama said. “I mean for the most part, I for example do not agree with a [...]
Edwards Returns to New Orleans updated Taylor Marsh LIVE! 3:00 p.m. eastern – 12:00 pacific Missed the show? Podcast is up. His bid for the presidency is over, but the cause of his life, as well as his wife, lives on. Earlier on MSNBC, Mudcat Saunders made a comment regarding Clinton that does a disservice [...]
getty images “Well, I reached my hand out in friendship and unity and my hand is still reaching out,” she said, lapsing back into the dissed-woman mode. “And I look forward to shaking his hand sometime soon.” … .. Given her brazen quote to ABC News, Obama is right to be scared of Hillary. He [...]

THE 21st century world offers ways to tweak your appearance, or alter it altogether, with women finally able to combat directly the comparison that’s always been around. Men look distinguished as they age, while women look old, unattractive, or to use Rush Limbaugh’s favorite comment, who wants to look at a woman with wrinkles? The 2012 plastic surgery statistics are out and the American Society of Plastic Surgery tells the story.

Great sex doesn’t always just happen. Sometimes, it takes a little planning, especially if — like many Americans — you’ve been in a bit of a sex rut.

“Last night I interviewed Jill Stein the presidential candidate for the Green Party on this show. And I confess right now, I should have asked her to just get out of the race.” – Jennifer Granholm, “The War Room” [Current TV] THE ARGUMENT Jennifer Granholm makes above is a tactic that no longer fits the times.
“With that drum magazine, he could have gotten off 50, 60 rounds, even if it was semiautomatic, within one minute,” Chief Oates said. [New York Times] IN THE GAPING MAW of our leadership vacuum stands Aurora Police Chief Daniel Oates, whose resolve, vulnerability and humility inside the vortex of a man made hell revealed what nobody in Congress or either political party has shown in decades. Leadership without regard to anything but his own duty to the people, which included the cops in the eye of volcanic carnage.
“Rick Doblin has done a lot for the field, but he is more of a populist,” Grob says. “We need careful and controlled scientific studies showing the efficacy of these drugs so funding can continue.” Broader awareness of these sorts of end-of-life psychedelic studies could be good for everyone, the researchers say.

“If we can prove that a biological attack originated in a country that attacked us, then all bets are off.” – Sect. Hillary Clinton Women can do it, too.
The interview with Obama by George Stephanopoulos wasn’t nearly as contentious as the interview with the Edwardses. No Republican talking points from Stephanopoulos yesterday, like when he accused Edwards of abandoning the troops with this beauty: “Do you think the Democrats should be saddled with the idea of completely cutting off funding for the troops?” Or this one: “You know, a lot of Democrats still in the Senate think that your position here is cynical political theater.
