Washington (CNN) - Hillary Clinton has been upfront about her support for Israel's recent military operations in Gaza. And her outspokenness is infuriating pro-Palestinian supporters in the United States.
Since Israel kicked off Operation Protective Edge against Hamas in early July, Clinton has strongly and repeatedly said she backs Israel's right to defend itself. She stepped up that message in a recent interview with The Atlantic, in which she charged Hamas for "stage-managing" the conflict to engender sympathy.
(CNN) - Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont says his brand of liberalism could serve as a "damn good platform" to run for president.
In an interview posted Monday to ABC/Yahoo News, Sanders, an independent who aligns himself with the Democratic Party, said income inequality is at its highest point in over eight decades - and the American people are ready to elect someone who's able to close that gap.
(CNN) – Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama's first secretary of state, dramatically distanced herself from the President's approach to foreign policy in an interview published Sunday.
"Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle," Clinton told The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg, knocking the Obama administration's foreign policy.
Washington (CNN) – Taj Magruder has never voted for Hillary Clinton. He has no connection to her paid staff. And he is not collecting a paycheck from a cadre of groups anticipating a Clinton presidential run in 2016.
All of this bothers him.
Magruder, a 23-year-old "Clinton-ologist" from Pennsylvania, devotes much of his online life to supporting, defending and responding to her every move.
Washington (CNN) - Embattled former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, the man who was at the center of the $1.6 billion MF Global collapse, will be the co-host of a Ready for Hillary fundraiser in the Wainscott, New York later this month.
Corzine will co-sponsor the event along with special guests David Brock, the head of Correct the Record, a pro-Clinton messaging and rapid response group; actress Ashley Judd and Craig Smith, a longtime Clinton friend and Ready for Hillary senior adviser.
Washington (CNN) – Hillary Clinton – and her personal office staff – are going home. Sort of.

Washington (CNN) – Hillary Clinton poked fun at herself on an unannounced visit to "The Colbert Report" on Tuesday night.
The former secretary of state, who has been on a two-month tour to promote her book "Hard Choices," joked with Stephen Colbert in a scripted segment about the amount of name-dropping in her book and her regular use of diplomatic language.
Washington (CNN) – Hillary Clinton is beating New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on his own turf, a new poll finds.
Fifty percent of New Jersey voters - who reelected Christie in 2013 - said they would vote for Clinton over Christie if the presidential election was held today, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released Wednesday. Forty-two percent of voters said they would pick the New Jersey governor.
Washington (CNN) – Hillary Clinton told an interviewer in 1999 – the year after the Monica Lewinsky scandal rocked Bill Clinton's presidency – that the President's infidelity issues stemmed from his abusive mother and led to a sex addiction for the former president.
The comments come from an upcoming book by Lucinda Franks, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, whose book – "Timeless: Love, Morgenthau and Me" – is set to hit bookshelves in late August. Clinton's comments come from an interview she granted Franks, at the time a writer for the short lived Talk magazine.
Washington (CNN) – Just like anyone thinking about applying for a new position, Hillary Clinton – or people close to her – have tinkered with and beefed up the promotional biography she uses at different events.
Since leaving the State Department in 2013, Clinton's speaking agency provided organizations before which she was appearing with a variation of the lengthy bio that she uses at the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. The organization would, in turn, use some or all of the bio in promotional and press materials.
