With vocal support of Israel, Clinton rankles pro-Palestinian Americans

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.

Sanders stirs up 2016 speculation, says he's got a 'damn good platform' to run on

(CNN) - Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont says his brand of liberalism could serve as a "damn good platform" to run for president.

Hillary Clinton's unpaid warriors

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.

New book says Hillary Clinton blamed husband's infidelity on abuse as a child

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.

Applying for new job? Clinton tinkers with her bio

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.
