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.

Bill Clinton: ‘I nearly got’ Osama bin Laden

Washington (CNN) - Bill Clinton, just hours before planes crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, reportedly told an audience in Australia that he almost killed Osama bin Laden during his presidency.

Speaking to a group of businessmen in Australia on September 10, 2001, according to audio aired by SkyNews Australia on Wednesday, Clinton said that he "nearly got" the al Qaeda leader but didn't go through with a missile attack because of the collateral damage that would have come from it.

Poll: Obama flirts with all-time low approval in Ohio as Clinton remains strong

(CNN) – Ohio voters have soured on President Barack Obama, according to a new survey, but are still upbeat about Hillary Clinton, his possible Democratic successor.

Thirty-six percent of Ohio voters approve of the way Obama is handing his job as president, according to the Quinnipiac University poll, a number that is only three percentage points above the President's Buckeye State low point of 34% in November 2013. Fifty-nine percent of Ohio voters disapprove of how the President's handling his duties.
