Friend's papers give insight into rise of the Clintons

Fayetteville, Arkansas (CNN) - Only a few people would feel at ease to send Hillary Clinton cartoon clippings. Diane Blair was one of them.

Throughout much of Bill Clinton's eight years in the White House, Blair - a political science professor and longtime Clinton friend - exchanged political and humor cartoons with the first lady. Nothing, it seemed, was too small or inconsequential to send back and forth.

    I wonder how much CNN is being paid to run twenty year old nonsense, meant nothing then, less now. You know your in trouble when you have to churn up decades told stories. Is there really any relevance in running the same BS daily? Pathetic, they know there in deep doo doo.lmfao, daily!

  3. Dutch/Bad Newz, VA -aka- Where's Our $24 Billion?

    Why all of the Clinton press when she's not even decided if she's going to run or not? Is this some sort of early smear campaign brought to us by Rand Paul, Fox News & CNN? How about covering some important issues like how many bills are stalled in the House of Representatives.

    When you literally have zero accomplishments to run on your left trying yo make the other guy look worse than you, no small task for the gop, its daily bashing the same old story no one cares about but them. If that's all the more you got, I'd be very concerned too .

    Because it generates a lot of activity and interest with the conspiracy theory crowd. It is sick and scary in a way to see all the tin foil hat folks coming out of the woodwork with everything from recent GOP talking scare points to old chestnuts from the Ken Starr persecution. It is good press in terms of exposure but it is not really news.

    " Hillary Clinton defended her husband's adultery by saying it was caused, partly, because "the ugly forces started making up hateful things about them, pounding on them."

    I thought the affairs went back at least as far as his time as governor of Arkansas. Gennifer Flowers alleges a relationship with Clinton in 1980, among others.

    Granted, I wasn't there; they may be untrue allegations (but SO many).

    Sounds like Hillary is in denial.

    salty dog "When you literally have zero accomplishments to run on"

    I thought you were talking about Hilary.

    Sure, the righties seem to have no viable candidate (maybe jeb-boy), but right now the dems are doing no better
    Still early.

    Just like Obama shouldn't have been the first black president, Hilary shouldn't be the first female president. They're both very bad for the country.

    What is all this stuff about the history of the Clinton's?
    The teaklans/repugs think that this is going to hurt Hillary's chances with the car of clowns and losers they have for 2016?
    Good,luck. Unless she has murdered somebody she IS it!
