(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?"
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.
(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.
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.
(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.
New York (CNNMoney) – Businesses hired far fewer workers than expected in May, throwing into doubt the strength of the economic recovery.

(CNN) – President Barack Obama's campaign went up with a new web video Friday, entirely featuring footage of Republicans attacking Mitt Romney's economic record.

New York (CNNMoney) – President Barack Obama has made a boatload of promises for the economy.
He's pledged to do plenty of things during his presidency - cut the deficit in half, double exports and slash unemployment. The list goes on and on. Some have worked out, and others not so much.
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."
(CNN) - On the first day of June, candidates and their campaigns will be busy fund-raising.
