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?
Washington (CNN) – If you wanted a friend to defend your reputation against serious sideswipes, who better to do it than one of the most recognizable women in the world, with years of experience beating back barbs?
Enter Hillary Clinton in defense of President Barack Obama. As conservatives throw arrows aimed at the President's handling of multiple world crises, Clinton defended her former adversary-turned-boss-turned-friend.
The former secretary of state – and prospective presidential candidate - sat down with CNN's Fareed Zakaria for a wide-ranging interview taped Friday and aired Sunday on "CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS."
Some conservatives accuse Obama of not being tough enough on Russian President Vladimir Putin. Is the President appropriately handling the Ukranian crisis, Clinton was asked?
(CNN) - Russian President Vladimir Putin bears at least some responsibility for the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday.
"I think if there were any doubt it should be gone by now, that Vladimir Putin, certainly indirectly - through his support of the insurgents in eastern Ukraine and the supply of advanced weapons and, frankly, the presence of Russian Special Forces and intelligence agents - bears responsibility for what happened," she told CNN's Fareed Zakaria in an exclusive interview that will air Sunday.
Clinton's comments come just over a week since Flight MH17 crashed in eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 on board. Pro-Russian militants have been accused of downing the plane using Russia-supplied armaments and of interfering with the subsequent investigation at the crash site.
U.S. President Barack Obama last week called the crash a "wake-up call for Europe and the world that there are consequences to an escalating conflict in eastern Ukraine," a view Clinton echoed in urging Europe to go further.FULL STORY
Washington (CNN) - If a rematch of the 2012 presidential election were held today, GOP nominee Mitt Romney would top President Barack Obama in the popular vote, according to a new national survey.
But a CNN/ORC International poll also indicates that if Romney changes his mind and runs again for the White House, Hillary Clinton would best him by double digits in a hypothetical showdown.
(CNN) – It was a mad dash to hug Hillary Clinton.
Toward the end of an event Friday at the Bronx Children’s Museum, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor set dozens of kids upon the former secretary of state, urging them to hug her and other leaders who attended.
Washington (CNN) - It worked.
That is the argument former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made during a Thursday interview about her much talked about 2009 reset of U.S.-Russia relations.
(CNN) – Hillary Clinton is the clear 2016 frontrunner in the nation's largest presidential battleground state, according to a new poll.
A Quinnipiac University survey of Florida voters indicates the former secretary of state, who's seriously considering a second bid for the White House, has leads from seven to 21 percentage points over potential GOP presidential candidates in possible 2016 showdowns.
(CNN) – Hillary Clinton, throughout much of her book tour, has made bold claims comparing the Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton economies.
Last week, Clinton stepped up those claims in an interview with Charlie Rose when she asserted “if I just were to compare Reagan's eight years with Bill's eight years, it's like night and day in terms of the effects, the number of jobs that were created, the number of people lifted out of poverty 100 times more when Bill was president. And did policies have something to do with that? I would argue that they did.”
Washington (CNN) – Hillary Clinton, Sonia Sotomayor and Julian Castro will appear together in New York City on Friday as part of Dream Big Day at the Bronx Children's Museum.
Earlier this summer, Sotomayor surprised the former secretary of state during a book signing Clinton held at a Costco in Northern Virginia. The Supreme Court justice and Clinton shared a few words and held each others hand while they chatted.
(CNN) - Marco Rubio's apparently not so concerned if Hillary Clinton decides to make another run for the White House.
"I just think she's a 20th century candidate," the first-term senator from Florida and potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate told NPR.
