Washington (CNN) - Haim Saban, a multibillionaire media mogul, said Monday he is prepared to spend "as much as needed" to get Hillary Clinton into the White House in 2016.

While it is no secret that Saban, the head of Univision and a prodigious Democratic money man, is excited about the prospect of Hillary Clinton running for president in 2016, these recent comments to Bloomberg up the ante of his support.

Clinton jokes: Darth Vader would not be my choice for president

Washington (CNN) - Attention potential presidential candidates: Beware of the dark side.

A recent tongue-in-cheek analysis shows Americans prefer Darth Vader more than any potential 2016 presidential candidate. Never mind that Darth Vader has done some pretty evil things across the “Star Wars” films, including blowing up planets and torturing his own son, Luke Skywalker.

What does former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton think?

The ‘Inside Politics' Forecast: The White House loves the GOP lawsuit

CNN's John King and other top political reporters empty out their notebooks each Sunday on "Inside Politics" to reveal five things that will be in the headlines in the days, weeks and months ahead.

WASHINGTON (CNN) – It is 100 days until the 2014 midterm election, so no surprise our trip around the Inside Politics table this Sunday delivered some fun campaign nuggets. But we didn’t ignore 2016 entirely.

1. Yes, the Obama White House loves the GOP lawsuit

That’s right, Julie Pace of The Associated Press talked about a rare bipartisan agreement in Washington: the sense in both parties believe that the House GOP plan to sue the president is a political plus.

Say what? In a nutshell, House Republicans see it as a way to go home to their red districts and promise they are standing up to the president, while the White House and fellow Democrats see a huge opening to question GOP priorities and gin up Democratic fund-raising in the process.

“They are going to be hammering this point: that there is one week left in this congressional session and this is what Republicans are focused on,” said Pace. FULL POST

Rubio decries ‘intolerance’ against same-sex marriage opponents

Washington (CNN) – Citing a “growing intolerance” against opponents of same-sex marriage, Sen. Marco Rubio argued that those who advocate same-sex marriage need to be more respectful of those who oppose it.

“Supporting the definition of marriage as one man and one woman is not anti-gay. It's pro-traditional marriage,” the Florida Republican said in a speech at Catholic University. “And if support for traditional marriage is bigotry, then Barack Obama was a bigot until just before the 2012 election.”
