Rounding out weeks of interviews and exclusives on the topic of her new book Hard Choices, Hillary Clinton joined CNN’s Christiane Amanpour for a CNN town hall yesterday at the Newseum followed by a joint live interview closing out Bret Baier’s “Special Report” and opening Greta Van Susteren’s “On the Record.”

Both the televised town hall and her sit down with FOX led with yesterday’s breaking news of the arrest of Benghazi attack suspect Ahmed Abu Khatallah.

“This is another indication, as President Obama said in his statement today, that the United States has an unwavering commitment to bring to justice those who are responsible for attacks on Americans, no matter where they are, no matter how long it takes,” said Clinton in her conversation with CNN chief international correspondent Amanpour.

Mirroring her earlier comments before CNN, Clinton told Baier, “My point is that what we try to do in this country and I think what was made abundantly clear by this latest effort is we have an unwavering commitment to go after anyone, no matter how long it takes, who is responsible for harming Americans and everybody around the world who thinks about that, plans that, needs to know that will be the outcome.” Read more

POLITICO Lands Exclusive for Hard Choices Benghazi Chapter

hillary-clinton-hard-choicesHillary Clinton‘s forthcoming Hard Choices is again back in the spotlight after POLITICO exclusively obtained “Benghazi: Under Attack,” the chapter that chronicles the September 2012 events in Libya that led to the death of four Americans, including US Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

“Those who exploit this tragedy over and over as a political tool minimize the sacrifice of those who served our country,” writes Clinton in the 34 page chapter.

POLITICO’s Maggie Haberman explains that, “Her tone is less defensive than defiant: Clinton takes responsibility for the ‘horror’ of the loss of life in Benghazi, but puts it in the context of ‘the heartbreaking human stakes of every decision we make’ — and she accuses adversaries of manipulating a tragedy for partisan gain.” Read more

Dan Savage on his HUMP! Tour, Sex in DC, and the GOP

Screen Shot 2014-03-20 at 13.24.15Earlier today, FishbowlDC had the opportunity to speak with love and sex advice columnist Dan Savage, in advance of the DC stop of his amateur adult film festival, HUMP!. The show premiers tonight and runs through Saturday at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company.

HUMP! films take a nuanced approach to amateur adult films by using parody, documentary themes, animation, and more to give viewers an artistic look at the genre. The festival was created in 2005 by the “Savage Love” author as a sex-positive and creative outlet for amateur pornographers.

Eight screenings are planned for its visit to DC, including Thursday, March 20 and Friday, March 21 at 8 and 10 pm and at 4, 6, 8, and 10 pm Saturday, March 22. Tickets may be purchased at http://humptour.strangertickets.com. The festival’s DC stop is presented by the Washington City Paper, which runs “Savage Love” weekly and online.

Read on for our Q&A with Savage on the origins of the tour, what we can expect, and naturally, his answers to Push/F@#k/Marry with Fox News’ Bret Baier, CNN’s Jake Tapper, and MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.
