Hillary Clinton wrestling with White House run

Sep 23 2013, 11:30pm CDT | by IANS

Washington, Sep 24 (IANS) Not long ago, Hillary Clinton had "absolutely no plans to run" for the White House in 2016. Now she is "wrestling" with the idea, but is in no hurry to decide as it's a decision "not to be made lightly."

Washington, Sep 24 — Not long ago, Hillary Clinton had "absolutely no plans to run" for the White House in 2016. Now she is "wrestling" with the idea, but is in no hurry to decide as it's a decision "not to be made lightly."

A possible White House run by the former Secretary of State and First Lady, whom polls put as the leading contender Democratic nomination, has become a topic of renewed speculation with the publication of an interview by New York magazine.

In her first interview since leaving the State Department, asked by the magazine whether she wrestles with the idea of a possible run, Clinton replied "I do, but I'm both pragmatic and realistic."

"I think I have a pretty good idea of the political and governmental challenges that are facing our leaders, and I'll do whatever I can from whatever position I find myself in to advocate for the values and the policies I think are right for the country," she said.

"I will just continue to weigh what the factors are that would influence me making a decision one way or the other," said Clinton, who started out as a leading contender for Democratic nomination in 2008 too, but narrowly lost out to then Senator Barack Obama.

But "I'm not in any hurry. I think it's a serious decision, not to be made lightly, but it's also not one that has to be made soon," she said. "This election is more than three years away, and I just don't think it's good for the country."

"It's like when you meet somebody at a party and they look over your shoulder to see who else is there, and you want to talk to them about something that's really important; in fact, maybe you came to the party to talk to that particular person, and they just want to know what's next. I feel like that's our political process right now. I just don't think it is good."

Some of Clinton's closest confidants insist she will run, even if she hasn't realized it yet, according to the magazine. Of Clinton's failed 2008 bid, her aide Melanne Verveer told the magazine, "She doesn't repeat her mistakes."

Clinton also told the magazine that after many years, she and her husband Bill Clinton were enjoying their "ordinary" life together.

"We get to be at home together a lot more now than we used to in the last few years. We have a great time; we laugh at our dogs; we watch stupid movies; we take long walks; we go for a swim. You know just ordinary, everyday pleasures," she was quoted as saying.

'Bill Clinton would have fired Hillary'

Sep 1 2014 3:08pm CDT | Source: WND

DALLAS – Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., certainly seems to have no doubt Hillary Clinton will run for president, after delivering a number of pre-emptive broadsides on her fitness to hold the highest office in the land. Speaking to the “Defending the American Dream Summit” sponsored by Americans for Prosperity over the weekend, Paul zeroed in on the one incident alone he believes disqualifies her: Benghazi. Paul, who is widely considered to be preparing his own run for the Wh ...

Reid's Grip On Power Hangs On Democratic Aristocracy

Sep 1 2014 11:20am CDT | Source: Big Government

Control of the US Senate largely hinges on the outcome of election in 12 states. In half of these contests, the Democrat candidate is the scion of rich political legacies. In their own way, these contests will test the proposition that America is a land without an aristocracy. Obama's "Dreams of My Father" may be less a memoir than a political blueprint.   For many Democrat candidates this year, their last name is their greatest political asset. In Ark ...

Hillary Got It Right on Ferguson and Race

Aug 31 2014 7:22pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Hillary Clinton was pilloried and battered for days on end for not uttering a peep about the Michael Brown slaying, the Ferguson disorders, and most importantly race. Clinton took heat on this for the simple reason that she almost certainly will run for president and likely win. It would look pretty peculiar for a presidential candidate, especially a Democratic presidential candidate, and likely winner not to say anything about America's eternal fla ...

Why isn't Obama afraid?

Aug 31 2014 3:36pm CDT | Source: WND

Is there nothing that horrifies the president? Not even brutally cutting off the head of an American journalist in front of a camera? How about the kidnapping of hundreds of male and female school children, and doing terrible things to them? Think the worst, and it’s worse than that. For many, death is a form of rescue. What about attacking Christian churches, killing the priests and burning the buildings and the people in them to the ground? Is there no ...

Islamist militia seizes US embassy in Libya

If Barack Obama's hideous foreign policy debacles were a stage play, this is the point where Hillary Clinton would be lowered on wires to fly around the stage shrieking "WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?"  Tripoli has fallen to Islamists, prompting Egypt and the United Arab Emirates to conduct bombing runs against the Muslim Brotherhood without even bothering to inform former U.S. President Barack Obama (who is, once aga ...

Mitt Romney appeared on WNYM's "The Cats Round Table" with John Catsimatidis today and had some harsh words for both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama when it came to foreign policy. "Hillary Clinton and her boss Barack Obama were extraordinarily naive and misguided in describing a 'reset' with Russia—her smiling ear-to-ear with a big red button that says 'reset' on it, giving it to the Russian Foreign Minist ...

Rand Paul: If Hillary Had Worked for Bill, She'd Have Probably Been Fired

Friday and the Americans for Prosperity “Defending the Dream” summit, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) went on the offensive against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is said to be the frontrunner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. Paul took aim at her tenure as the nation’s chief diplomat and particularly hammered her on the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. According to Paul, that disqualified her to be commander-in-chief ...
