Another Clinton in the White House?

(CNN) – Asked if Bill Clinton could see another Clinton running for president in 2016–possibly his daughter Chelsea or wife Hillary–the former president indicated Thursday, "We will just see."

"Chelsea will be too young, I think, maybe not quite. Hillary says she's going to retire. We will just see. You know, I think she intends to come home and start doing a lot of the charitable work," Clinton said on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." "She has worked so hard for 20 years, you know?"

Obama campaign reacts to Clinton on CNN

Washington (CNN) – The Obama re-election campaign is glossing over the off message positive comments former President Clinton made about presumptive Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, during an interview on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight Thursday.

They are instead focusing on one line where Clinton described the tactics some private equity investors use.

Florida defends voter roll 'purge' after protest from DOJ

(CNN) - Florida's proposed elimination of non-U.S. citizens from its voter rolls is necessary to preventing voter fraud, a spokesman for the state's Division of Elections said Friday after the U.S. Department of Justice called into question the legality of the action.

The so-called "voter purge" would remove names from Florida's voter rolls months before the 2012 presidential election, when Florida will play a key role as a battleground state with a large chunk of electoral votes.

Why politicians lie and why we want to believe them

Washington (CNN) – Wolf Blitzer and Donald Trump's heated showdown this week over claims of a conspiracy to conceal President Barack Obama's true birthplace was, at its core, an argument about lying.

Trump and other "birthers" believe the president, mainstream media outlets, the courts and the state of Hawaii are all lying, conspiring in a cover-up that began with Obama's birth announcement in a Honolulu newspaper in 1961.

Republicans blame Obama for job numbers

(CNN) - Top Republicans were quick to fault the Obama administration for Friday's job numbers, which showed a lower-than-expected addition of 69,000 jobs in May and a slight bump in the unemployment rate to 8.2% from 8.1% last month.

"It is now clear to everyone that President Obama's policies have failed to achieve their goals and that the Obama economy is crushing America's middle class," Mitt Romney said in a statement.

FIRST ON CNN: Romney intel briefings to start after official nomination

Washington (CNN) – The Obama administration will stick with the election-year tradition of both Democratic and Republican White Houses in offering presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney classified intelligence briefings only after he formally secures his party's nomination at the convention this summer.

"It's a long-standing practice for presidential candidates and select advisors to be provided intelligence briefings following the party's nominating convention," Shawn Turner, the spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, told CNN's Security Clearance. "During the last presidential campaign, all the candidates began receiving briefings in September following the conventions."
