Hillary Clinton for President

Clinton networks with LinkedIn in small business pitch

Jeremy Diamond, CNN

Hillary Clinton expanded her social media footprint today, joining LinkedIn with an inaugural post about how she wants to be "a small business president" for the country. LinkedIn is Clinton's latest platform since she joined Facebook last month to announce the launch of her presidential campaign, though her LinkedIn and Facebook presences are dwarfed by the 3.55 million followers she boasts on Twitter.

Clinton is banking on the Obama coalition to win

Anne Gearan, The Washington Post

Hillary Rodham Clinton is running as the most liberal Democratic presidential front-runner in decades, with positions on issues from gay marriage to immigration that would, in past elections, have put her at her party’s precarious left edge. The moves are part of a strategic conclusion by Clinton’s emerging campaign: that it can harness the same kind of young and diverse coalition as Barack Obama did in 2008 and 2012, bolstered by even stronger appeal among women.

How many questions has Hillary Clinton answered?

Nick Gass, Politico

NPR on Wednesday compiled a list of 13 reporter queries to the former secretary of state since she announced her candidacy via web video on April 12. Many of the were softball "how do like Iowa" typ questions. By comparison, Republican candidate Carly Fiorina took 322 questions in her campaign’s first eight days, a Fiorina spokeswoman told Breitbart News on Monday.

Bush, Clinton taking different tracks on potential matchup

Thomas Beaumont and Julie Pace, AP

To judge them solely by their travels over the past month, you might think Jeb Bush has already plunged into the general election and Hillary Rodham Clinton has a serious fight on her hands for the Democratic nomination. Whereas the conventional thinking, at least, is quite the opposite: He’s got a real primary race to settle first and she doesn’t.

Maybe Hillary Is Right

The more we think about it, the more we like the idea of Hillary Clinton aggressively campaigning on the issue of amnesty for illegal aliens. 

It’s Not About Hillary’s Scandals: It’s Her Ideas Stupid!

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

To win in 2016 Republicans must stop treating Hillary Clinton's scandals like a silver bullet and start telling voters what the election of Mrs. Clinton would mean, and drawing a sharp and clear contrast between conservative policies and those far-Left policies upon which Hillary Clinton is already campaigning. But so far Republicans have given Hillary Clinton a pass on her truly radical ideas and policies – and instead played to her strongest point – the ability to weather a scandal.

Senator Bernie Sanders Calls Hillary Clinton Foundation Money ‘A Very Serious Problem’

Arlette Saenz, ABC's Good Morning America

The two-term Vermont senator announced he will run for president in 2016. Sanders, the longest serving independent lawmaker in congressional history, will run as a Democrat in the primaries – the first official challenger to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.Sanders said he is concerned by the millions of dollars flowing into the Clinton Foundation at a time when he thinks money plays too strong a role in politics. “It tells me what is a very serious problem,” Sanders said in an interview with ABC News’ Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl. 

Hillary’s Trade Wimp-Out

The Wall Street Journal

Some business executives like to say these days that while President Obama has a lousy economic record, Hillary Clinton would be so much better. So how do you explain Mrs. Clinton’s monumental waffle on the biggest pro-growth policy fight of the year—trade promotion authority?

History Shows Clintons And Bushes Are NOT Electoral Juggernauts

Eric Owens, The Daily Caller

The historical facts fly in the face of the widely-held conventional wisdom that Clinton’s presidential campaign was some kind of electoral juggernaut which steamrolled all opponents in the way. On the Bush side, both George H.W. and his son George W. have been even weaker.

Hillary Clinton and the Death of Truth in Liberal America

The latest, and perhaps final chapter of America's surrender to moral relativism, and the elimination among America's elite of any allegiance to objective fact as the standard by which all matters must be judged, is playing out in the failure of liberals and Democrats to confront the facts of the rapidly evolving scandal regarding foreign government contributions to the Clinton Foundation, Bill Clinton’s speaking fees and policy-making by Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State as documented in Peter Schweizer's new book “Clinton Cash.”

Why Hillary Clinton is going after hedge funds

MJ Lee, CNN

Gee her son-in-law works for one, but Hillary Clinton's got a problem with hedge fund managers -- or at least with the way they're taxed. The expected frontrunner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination is avoiding policy specifics for now, but the taxation of hedge fund managers -- an elite class of investors who will no doubt pour millions into Clinton's second White House bid -- has been an early exception.

Hillary Clinton Supports Driver's Licenses For Illegal Aliens, Reversing 2008 Stance

Dennis Lynch, IBT

Hillary Clinton now supports offering driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants, a 180-degree turn on her stance on the issue eight years ago, a news report released Thursday said. Clinton is known for a 2007 flub when she said doing so “makes a lot of sense,” but that she didn’t support such a measure. Her opponents vying for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, including then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, slammed her for not taking a firm stance on the issue.

Hillary Clinton to Supreme Court: Legalize Same-Sex Marriage Nationally

Patrick Caldwell, Mother Jones

Hillary Clinton's now-official presidential campaign has so far opted for gauzy announcement videos and vague feel good promises over much in the way of policy specifics. But on Wednesday, Clinton's team clarified one stance she she will take: same-sex marriage is a constitutional right that should be legal in every state.

Clinton’s Wall Street backers: We get it

Gabriel Debenedetti, Kenneth P. Vogel and Ben White, POLITICO

Hillary Clinton sounded like a woman on a mission after her long drive into the heartland: “There’s something wrong,” she told Iowans on Tuesday, when “hedge fund managers pay lower taxes than nurses or the truckers I saw on I-80 when I was driving here over the last two days.” But back in Manhattan, the hedge fund managers who’ve long been part of her political and fundraising networks aren’t sweating the putdown. Populist rhetoric, many say, is good politics — but doesn’t portend an assault on the rich.

Clinton's Standing In New Hampshire: More Dominant Than Ever

Scott Conroy, Huffington Post

New Hampshire state Sen. David Pierce had a bounce in his step as he made his way to church in his Upper Connecticut River Valley district on Sunday morning. Pierce headed to his garage and pulled down from the wall a dusty old yard sign that had been lying in storage for almost eight years: “New Hampshire For Hillary.” As she headed out on her road trip to Iowa on Sunday, there was little reason to believe that Clinton would face much of a challenge on her way to an expected victory there -- or anywhere else, for that matter -- once the first Democratic voting contests of the 2016 election begin next February.

Conservatives: Hillary is the Democrat We Want to Run Against

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Hillary Clinton is the perfect foil for a campaign run on reclaiming limited constitutional government, traditional values and peace through strength. Two-thirds of Americans are already dissatisfied with the direction of the country, what they need, and are looking for, is a candidate who will provide a clear conservative alternative to the third term of Obama that Hillary Clinton offered on Sunday.

NRA's LaPierre targets Hillary Clinton

Mary Troyan, The Tennessean

NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre skipped the Republican primary and went straight to the general election of 2016 by focusing his speech on likely Democratic frontrunner Hillary Rodham Clinton. "I vow on this day the NRA will stand shoulder to shoulder with you and good, honest decent Americans and we will stand and fight with everything we've got and in 2016, by God, we will elect the next great president of the United States of America and it will not be Hillary Rodham Clinton," LaPierre said.

Stephen Dinan, The Washington Times

The State Department’s inspector general has agreed to investigate the program that allowed former Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton to hire one of her key advisors, Huma Abedin, for government work even as she was also employed by a private firm, a senator revealed Friday. Inspector General Steve A. Linick also said he wasn’t aware of Mrs. Clinton’s or Ms. Abedin’s use of a non-government email account to conduct official business.
