Washington (CNN) – On a chilly Washington, D.C. morning in January 1993, Maya Angelou's five-minute poem at Bill Clinton's inauguration turned the already accomplished author and poet into a national icon.
Standing on the West Front of the Capitol, Angelou became the first African-American and first woman inaugural poet when she read "On the Pulse of Morning," a poem she wrote for the new president. The five-minute reading was only the second time a poet has read at a presidential inauguration.
Washington (CNN) - Most Americans don't agree with Karl Rove's questioning of Hillary Clinton's health and age, according to a new national poll.
And an ABC News/Washington Post survey released Wednesday also indicates that a majority of the public says they'd support Clinton if she makes a second bid for the White House.
Washington (CNN) - Republicans didn't waste much time in trying to score some political points off of Tuesday's loss by Marjorie Margolies in her bid to re-capture the House seat she lost 20 years ago.
Margolies, the mother-in-law to Chelsea Clinton, was handily defeated as she ran in the Democratic Primary for Pennsylvania's 13th Congressional District. State Representative Brendan Boyle soundly defeated Margolies by 13-percentage points.

(CNN) – Republican strategist Karl Rove on Sunday once again defended his controversial comments about Hillary Clinton’s 2012 concussion, this time trying to use former President Bill Clinton’s own words to back him up.
“Her husband told us something the other day we didn’t know: It took her six months to get back,” Rove said on “Fox News Sunday.”
Washington (CNN) - Who needs the Kardashians - or has time for them, anyway - when "Keeping up with the Clintons" is so entertaining. Not to mention exhausting.
Karl Rove raises the idea that Hillary Clinton suffered a traumatic brain injury, and the debate rages:
Washington (CNN) – Hillary Clinton offered a strong defense of her husband's presidency on Friday as both Democrats and Republicans have started to link the former first lady to the economic policies of the 1990s.
Clinton's comments were more political than historical, and she offered a tough critique of former President George W. Bush as someone focused solely on tax cuts for the rich.
Philadelphia (CNN) - It's a large district in and around Philadelphia. It's not a swing seat; it's a safe Democratic stronghold-not a nailbiter. But in this midterm election, the 13th Congressional District race has attracted some national attention and some rock star fundraisers: Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Why such attention and star power? Because the candidate is Marjorie Margolies: related by marriage to the Clintons and tied to the former President by history.
(CNN) - Former President Bill Clinton suggested the Republican Party has become more extreme, saying Richard Nixon would be considered "a flat-out communist" compared to the people running his party today.
Kicking off a speech to a progressive think tank, Clinton said that to be successful in a life of public service, "you have to be obsessively interested in people and you need to be interested in them as individuals and not just as some collective body."
(CNN) - Former President Bill Clinton defended his wife Wednesday against renewed political tension over the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that left four Americans dead, including the U.S. ambassador.
He also argued there's been disproportionate attention on the deaths compared to diplomatic personnel killed when George W. Bush was president.
(CNN) - Chelsea Clinton graduated this weekend from Oxford University – her second commencement from the prestigious university - and her parents were in the audience.
A representative for Chelsea Clinton confirmed to CNN that former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodman Clinton are in England for the ceremonies Saturday.
