Hillary Clinton Asks Frank Underwood for Bill Clinton Birthday Wishes

Again, Hillary Clinton misses the mark of actually being funny in a recent video posted to the Clinton Foundation’s YouTube channel of a “prank call” the former Secretary of State receives from “House of Cards’ ” Frank Underwood. In it, Spacey imitates former President Bill Clinton, and in closing, the former First Lady encourages Underwood to sign Bill’s online and public 68th birthday card.

WATCH, and comment if you actually laughed.

Script Shines Through as Hillary Clinton Joins Stephen Colbert on ‘The Colbert Report’

Hillary Clinton appeared on “The Colbert Report” last night with host Stephen Colbert for what proved to be one of the worst media appearances related to her blitz for Hard Choices.

The show’s host started off by highlighting instances from the book in which the former Secretary of State “name drops” celebrities and world leaders. After, the likely 2016 presidential hopeful “surprises” Colbert and joins him onstage. In a far too scripted back and forth, the two recall memories with Tom Hanks, George Clooney, and Oprah.

Hillary Clinton on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” answering what Vladimir Putin is ‘like as a man’ : “Well, he’s very tough. He’s a very arrogant person to deal with, which I think is a combination of this vision of Russia and some fundamental insecurity because when you are dealing with him, he often acts as though he couldn’t care less, he’s not interested, even talking with him about getting Russia into the World Trade Organization which is something the Obama administration was determined to do because we want to have a rules based order in so far as possible.”

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on President Putin on CBS’s “Face the Nation” : “I think that Putin is living in his own world.  He has made up an awful lot of lies in terms of who is responsible for the fact that the Soviet Union disintegrated. He actually called that the greatest disaster of the 2oth century. Hard to believe, when there were two world wars that killed millions of people; among them, Russians. So that’s the first lie. And then he has, in fact, propagandized all that to his own country, and then into central and Eastern Europe. I think what he wants to do is to reestablish himself as the identification of Russian nationalism. And then also to do everything he can to kind of reestablish something akin to the Soviet Union, obviously not that, but a grouping of countries around Russia that are completely subservient to him and to Moscow. And until he can get that, he’s going to work to destabilize Eastern Europe.”

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on NBC’s “Meet the Press” : If you had 2,500 rockets falling on your cities, if you had terror tunnels dug underneath your border to reach your kindergarten, if you had attacks by land, by sea, and by air, of course  take action. You take action, you take military action aplenty. I have no doubt that you would. So does Israel.” Read more

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

The Ten Most Crowd-Pleasing Quotes at Hillary Clinton’s Talk at GW

IMG_5375On Friday night at GW’s Lisner Auditorium, Hillary Clinton sat down with her former speechwriter Lissa Muscatine, co-owner of Politics & Prose, for a conversation on the Hard Choices of her career as Secretary of State.

Much of the dialogue brought on audience displays of excitement through laughing, cheering, and clapping. Below are ten of the most crowd-pleasing quotes at at Hillary Clinton’s Friday night talk at GW.

On writing Hard Choices from her “writing room” in her home: “I would go up there early in the morning and I would make as many detours as I possibly could. It was always for something else. It was time to walk the dogs. It was time to go down and get more water…because you have to be very well hydrated…Ohh, and then of course, I read that you really should not sit for more than an hour. That became my favorite excuse.”

Recalling a drive to the camp of the King of Saudi Arabia with the country’s Foreign Minister: “The Foreign Minister was telling me how much he disliked camels. And I was saying, ‘My goodness! That’s like an Australian not liking kangaroos. That’s just so hard to imagine.’ But we were having a bit of a banter and a back and forth, and when we got to the meeting, it was a very large, formal setting, and I turned to the King and said, ‘Your Majesty, the Foreign Minister said he doesn’t like camels,’ and he said ‘What is wrong with him?’ ” Read more
