Bubba’s Playbook

…ects for reelection aren’t looking particularly promising either. That this could be said of two Presidents—Bill Clinton in 1994 and Barack Obama in 2010—says two things. Mark Twain was probably right when he said that history doesn’t repeat itself; it rhymes. But given the points of similarity that do exist, Obama should expect the worst and make use of the lessons of 1994 to understand how he can thrive with a Republican-controlled Congress. Cl…

Mudslinging in Denial

by by Marissa Tjartjalis Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been accused of many things throughout her political career. Yet until her visit to Egypt this past July, being a “Secret Islamist” was not one of them. Pulling up to the Four Seasons in Cairo, however, Clinton encountered a number of surprising allegations. “Hillary Clinton is the Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood,” one sign read in the midst of screaming protester…

The Fact Check Republic

…ecking has manifested itself most recently in a fact check done by the Associated Press on former President Bill Clinton’s speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. In his speech, Clinton said, “When times are tough, constant conflict may be good politics, but in the real world, cooperation works better…Unfortunately, the faction that now dominates the Republican Party doesn’t see it that way. They think gove…

#Diplomacy

…” As the Times reported in his interview, Ross played an instrumental role in connecting then-Secretary of State Clinton to major figures in the American technology industry like Eric Schmidt, the chief executive of Google, and Jack Dorsey, co-founder and chairman of Twitter. After hiring Ross, Secretary Clinton delivered her now-famous speech on Internet freedom at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. In her speech Clinton asserted that the United St…

Apology Accepted?

…hey lie in the history of prior presidential apologies, or lack thereof, made by such men as Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, and Bush himself. After famously stating that he did not have relations with “that woman,” Clinton suddenly found himself impeached and at risk of being evicted from office. Only at that point did Clinton give his decidedly perfunctory admission of guilt, but it did the trick. “Clinton’s apology occurred with…

Poll Bearers

…free trade, to woo voters in critical swing states where steel is produced, such as Pennsylvania and Ohio. Bill Clinton, too, despite his reputation for meticulously weighing the advantages and disadvantages of any policy before making a decision, got a lot of flak for relying too heavily on polling. “There are many anecdotal accounts of polls that were used in the Clinton administration to decide where the president should take a vacation,” sai…

It’s That Time Again: Veepstakes!

…e bats for the other team, but Romney’s never cared much for semantics like that. Plus the economy boomed during Clinton’s presidency, so Romney might actually have a chance at fixing things if he were to pick somebody who knew what he was doing. Again though, it’s just a shame Clinton’s got such a good gig with the Democratic Party. If the vice presidency were worth more power, it’d be hard for him to turn down.

Capitol Farce

…17;t be where I am today.” In 1996, vowing to produce “the end of welfare as we know it,” Bill Clinton signed into law the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA). That same year, Peter Edelman, former Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation at the Department of Health and Human Services, called PRWORA “the worst thing Bill Clinton ever did” and quit in protest. Clinton’…

Don’t Worry Yet

…, Egypt’s military has received billions of dollars to maintain the peace. During her visit to Egypt and Israel, Clinton discussed Egyptian-Israeli relations and US efforts to maintain cordial relations. Clinton stated that “we have a clear message of support for what the Egyptians decide is in their own best interest.” But what if a public opinion poll were to show that Egyptians believe a treaty with Israel is not in their best interest?
