Hillary Clinton Shows New Willingness to Tackle Risky Issues


MAY 7, 2015

It has been only three weeks since Hillary Rodham Clinton declared her candidacy for the White House, but she already looks more confident than she did during the almost 17 months of her last campaign.

Sure, no serious rival has yet emerged to get under her skin the way Barack Obama did in 2008. But Mrs. Clinton and her team have also shown a determination not to be thrown off course: not by the blowback on her use of personal email while at the State Department, not by reports critical of the Clinton Foundation, nor by congressional investigations of the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

Such flare-ups used to make Mrs. Clinton go cold and cautious. Now, she is projecting a scandals-be-damned attitude and barreling ahead with her agenda.

Hillary Clinton: 'I have said repeatedly I want those emails out'
CNN-10 hours ago
Cedar Falls, Iowa (CNN) Hillary Clinton's nearly month-long stretch of avoiding the press ended Tuesday when she told reporters here that her ...
If Clinton wanted all of her emails to be public, she wouldn't have created her own server in the first place," said Allison Moore, a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee.
. . .

Relationship to Sidney Blumenthal under scrutiny

Clinton made her comments at a time when it seems the issues facing her campaign are growing. A New York Times story on Tuesday documented emails Clinton exchanged with longtime ally Sidney Blumenthal about Libya. The messages were sent while Clinton was Secretary of State and Blumenthal worked for clients in the country.

Clinton told reporters she won't distance herself from allies if she's elected president, even if they might pose political problems.

"I'm going to keep talking to my old friends, whoever they are," Clinton said.



Hillary Clinton: I'll give press 'due consideration' 00:16

"He's been a friend of mine for a long time. He sent me unsolicited emails, which I passed on in some instances, and that's just part of the give-and-take," she said. "When you're in the public eye, when you're in an official position, I think you do have to work to make sure you're not caught in a bubble and you only hear from a certain small group of people."

She's not 'disliked' - It is stronger than that !


(To know, know, know her, is to ???? her!)

Why Hillary Clinton shouldn't worry about her latest drop in the polls Hillary Clinton has taken a beating in the polls on e-mails and donations.

So far, the controversies are peeling away Republicans who likely would have returned to their own party.


Hillary Clinton’s been hit with lots of tough news reports in recent weeks. For instance, many journalists have been exploring the nexus between the Clinton Foundation, its donors, and Mrs. Clinton’s actions as secretary of State. Others have taken hard looks at the Clinton family’s personal finances. Did you know Bill and Hillary Clinton have made about $25 million giving speeches since January 2014? That’s what The Washington Post reported. Wow. Just think how much that is, per anecdote.

Clinton’s pesky e-mails also continue to generate headlines. You know – the ones that she sent via her own private server while she was secretary of State. A federal judge on Tuesday ordered the State Department to release those on a rolling basis after they’re reviewed. Foggy Bottom had preferred to wait and make them public all at once.


But is this steady stream of negativity hurting Clinton’s standing with the public?

We’d argue that it isn’t, really. What it is doing is help push away voters who weren’t actually going to mark a ballot for her in the end. That exodus was inevitable. The only question was when it would happen.


Recommended: Beyond Hillary Clinton: 7 other Democrats possibly (or definitely) running for president


“Hillary Clinton has thus far weathered the political storms swirling around her fairly well,” concluded Gallup’s Lydia Saad in a recent analysis of Clinton’s electoral position.

A quick glance at a chart of Clinton’s favorability ratings and you would not think that’s the case.


She appears to be on a steady decline in this important measure. In November 2012, about 58 percent of voters had a positive view of her, and 33 percent had a negative view, according to Huffpost Pollster’s rolling average of major surveys. Today those two lines have converged. About 46 percent of voters have a favorable impression of Clinton, while 48 percent have a negative one.


She’s been dropping steadily. She’s one of the most famous people in the world, so voters must have had a strong impression of her already. It looks as if they’re changing their minds, and not in a good way as far as the Democrats are concerned.

However, the vast majority of the erosion in Clinton’s favorability ratings has occurred among self-described Republicans and Republican leaners. In March, about 75 percent of Republicans viewed her negatively, according to Gallup’s own figures. Now, 90 percent do.

“Over the same period, her unfavorable rating has increased only three percentage points among independents and Democrats, hardly significant except that it has held at this slightly higher level for two months,” writes Ms. Saad.

Answer: Badly ... and Rightly
As it is, Hillary has a Target painted on her back

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — Hillary Rodham Clinton was in a forgiving mood. She had been discussing the small-business economy at a round-table gathering at a bike shop here on Tuesday when the Fox News correspondent Ed Henry interrupted. When, he ...
. . .

Unlike in 2008, when Mrs. Clinton’s regal bearing was brought low by Barack Obama’s insurgent campaign, there is no one to force her out of her Rose Garden. Neither Bernie Sanders, the socialist senator from Vermont, nor Martin O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland, has applied significant pressure on her. That leaves the news media as her only real opponent so far on the way to the Democratic presidential nomination, and while it may not be great for an educated populace or the furtherance of American democracy, it makes all the political sense in the world for Mrs. Clinton to ignore them, too.

There is no shortage of reminders of the downsides of engagement. She need only look at her Republican counterparts, starting with Jeb Bush, who has made a point of opening up more to reporters but damaged himself during a several-day struggle with how to answer a question about the wisdom of the war in Iraq.

. . .


Mrs. Clinton’s relationship with the political press has never been warm. She started the 2008 race straight-arming reporters, and only when the nomination began slipping from her grasp did she seek to embrace them. It was too late. When she boarded the press bus with bagels (“I didn’t want you to feel deprived”), no one partook. Despite that chill, though, there was a sense of professionalism and familiarity on the Clinton bus, because many of the reporters represented New York-based publications and had covered her as a senator. News conferences were not frequent, but they occurred behind curtains after events.


Now, both Mrs. Clinton and the news media have changed. She seems less a presidential candidate than a historical figure, magically animated from a wax museum to claim what is rightfully hers. And the press corps, both blessed and cursed with live streaming, tweeting and Snapchatting technologies, is armed with questions devised to win the moment. The result is a carnival atmosphere. It is not clear what Mrs. Clinton gains politically from playing the freak.

CNN - ‎8 hours ago‎

Washington (CNN) Jitters about Jeb, some praise for Rick Perry, the meaning of Hillary Clinton's holiday weekend parade march and some coming Democratic competition filled our Sunday trip around the "Inside Politics" table. Plus, a take from ...

. . .

Maggie Haberman of The New York Times reminded us that Secretary Clinton -- formerly Senator Clinton -- has walked in her local New York parade before and gotten a great reception. Perhaps there's a tad more scrutiny this time because she is back in the running for president -- and because she is about to enter a somewhat new phase of the 2016 effort -- including the big official rollout rally.

"There has not been a sense of great energy around her candidacy so far," said Haberman. "So that is one thing to keep an eye on."

"So far, she's keeping these events small. They're doing it for a reason, but you lose something when you do it that way and they need to really kind of galvanize and mobilize people."

2. The summer of Bernie?

So far, the Clinton strategy is pretty obvious: lay out her positions in a way that both protects her standing as the prohibitive Democratic front-runner and, when possible, exposes GOP divisions.

Can she stick to what at times seems to be already a general election approach? Stay tuned.

CNN's Jeff Zeleny notes that the Democratic field is about to become bigger, at least officially, when Bernie Sanders launches his campaign on Tuesday.

"He's going to have a big rally, probably reminiscent of Howard Dean's big entry into the race in '03-'04," said Zeleny.

"The question is, will this be the summer of Bernie? Will he be able to rally things? He's already getting a lot of online support and a lot of interest from that side."

Zeleny adds that he will be watching Sanders and O'Malley, who will launch later in the week, to see how much "space they occupy" in the Democratic 2016 presidential field.

3. Jitters about Jeb, even as he says the ship has been righted

It's a bit off when the candidates get into self-analysis, but there was Jeb Bush this past week saying all is well and the ship is righted.

He felt compelled to make that statement after a stretch in which he seemed to have a hard time talking about the Iraq War and his brother's judgment in launching it.

Great at raising money, Lousy at campaigning


Are these people really the Front-runners? See anything wrong in this?


Jeb, Hillary are raising money faster than Snapchat, Uber

Published: June 4, 2015

Faster than a startup: Jeb Bush has touted record-making fundraising.


Fiscal policy reporter

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Quick, which can raise money faster: A. Silicon Valley startups or B. presidential hopefuls?

Sorry, Snapchat. Too bad, Twitter TWTR, +0.79% . The correct answer is B, according to a report released Thursday from Hamilton Place Strategies, a Washington-based consulting firm.

The report says modern presidential campaigns are the fastest startups in the world, and that, in the roughly 18 months between a campaign’s kickoff and Election Day, the general election candidates will likely have raised and spent over a billion dollars each.

The authors offer Snapchat as an example of campaigns outpacing companies. They write the messaging company was valued at $2 billion just two years after its founding. And in less than three years it has raised more than a billion dollars in funding.

But presidential campaigns can do better than that, they note. Just compare the paces on this chart.


Any candidate with their eyes on the White House prize will probably nod in recognition at this finding. The 2016 election is reportedly on track to be the most expensive in history, with Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton and her supportive super PAC, for example, expected to raise well over $1 billion.

Jeb Bush, who is expected to announce his candidacy next month, told donors in April he’d set a record for Republican politics for fundraising in the first 100 days of a White House bid. Bush leads Republicans in the RealClearPolitics average of polls about the nomination.

She's an opportunist, with no fixed bearings... Sanders is different (much more genuine in his beliefs)


People are sick and tired of the corruption and the lies that surround Mrs Clinton, I reckon


Washington Times - ‎15 hours ago‎
Sen. Bernard Sanders' strong second-place showing in Wisconsin Democrats' presidential straw poll has party leaders warning Hillary Rodham Clinton that she could have a real primary race on her hands. Mrs. Clinton, who is supposed to be the party's ...
. . .

Mrs. Clinton, who is supposed to be the party’s all-but-inevitable presidential nominee, barely beat Mr. Sanders in the balloting this past weekend, garnering 252 votes to his 208, or 49 percent to 41 percent.

“By golly, I think Clinton has got to pay attention to who’s out there,” said Gerry Lisi, Wisconsin Democratic Party chairman for Barron County. “I know Clinton is listening, and I’m sure this will have an effect.”

. . .

Mrs. Clinton declared herself the living-wage candidate when she spoke by telephone to a convention of about 1,300 fast-food workers in Detroit.

“I want to be your champion. I want to fight [for] you every day,” she said. “No one who works an honest job in America should have to live in poverty.”

Still, Mr. Sanders‘ campaign platform reads like a wish list of liberal activists: break up Wall Street banks, expand Social Security, crack down on unaccounted money in political campaigns and fight climate change.

Mrs. Clinton mostly has talked in general terms about fighting income inequality but hasn’t delved into details...

. . .

The favorability rating for the former first lady, senator and secretary of state fell to 46 percent from 53 percent in March, with 50 percent of Americans viewing her unfavorably. It was her lowest score in that survey in 14 years.

MESSAGE For Hillary: "there is some shit we will not eat"
(I am amazed that ONLY 50% view her unfavorably. I think she could hit 65-70% unfavorable, before she drops out of the campaign.
