Vermont’s “independent” “Socialist” Senator Bernie Sanders may have a lock on the left-wing vote but Hillary Clinton is doing everything she can to stop his rise.

In so doing, the ultimate crony capitalist is demonstrating, once again, that she has no core set of beliefs other than in obtaining power. Hillary is...

Are you ridin’ with Biden in 2016?

If you’re reading this article, chances are you’re not; but if you’re a Democrat, and you’re on the fence about who to support in the upcoming primary battle, there’s a super-PAC that would like a few minutes of your time.

Speaking in South Carolina Thursday, Hillary dropped an atomic gaffe.

Of all the idiocy that’s seeped out of Hillary Clinton’s mouth, this just might take the cake as the dumbest thing she’s said so far.

There are few things more cringeworthy than watching stiff-shirted, scripted folks attempting charisma. But that’s exactly what happened in Hillary Clinton’s latest social media soirée.

Long gone are the days when parents struggled to figure out how to rewind a video tape… now we have smart phones.

Seriously.

From Salon’s article It’s time to draft Al Gore, with the subheading, “Hillary’s flailing. Biden’s grieving. Bernie’s a longshot. Gore bridges the party’s...

Yesterday in Iowa, the Hillary Clinton campaign told their young supporters they couldn’t speak to the press. This clumsy and seemingly paranoid move earned Hillary Clinton mockery even on MSNBC.

Daniel Halper of the Weekly Standard has the details:

Long ago and far away I predicted that the effect on Hillary’s presidential campaign of the multiple scandals would be cumulative.

Since a large portion of the electorate, the younger generation, didn’t know the real Hillary of the 1990s, Hillary’s vulnerability was that the manufactured “nice grandma” and glass-ceiling breaker image of...

Ready for Warren and MoveOn.org have gone to spend the Weekend at Bernie Sanders, the stand-in for who progressives really want, Elizabeth Warren.

Bernie!? Really? Is an open Socialist really going to stand a chance in a general election?

In a train wreck of an interview with CNN Tuesday, Hillary Clinton made some colorful claims.

CNN’s Brianna Keilar asked Hillary what lead her to delete 33,000 emails. Avoiding the question, Mrs. Clinton rambled on about how technology is hard and was finally redirected by the softball coach Keilar.

Mrs. Clinton joined CNN Tuesday night for an interview that was stranger than fiction. In fact, I’m honestly not sure if the awkward conversation was meant to be self-parody or an earnest attempt at a prime time interview. The pants suit, the seemingly botoxed brow and resultant crazy eyes, and the...

Amazingly, Hillary Clinton’s campaign has a Communications Director. Constructing approximately five answers to press questions per year must be an incredibly grueling job.

Monday morning Jennifer Palmieri sat down with MSNBC’s Morning Joe to chat about the state of the campaign.
