Best Quotes from the Sunday Shows, 6.8.14

From CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) on the Obama Administration not informing Congress on the Taliban/Bergdhal swap: “I think this whole sort of deal has been one that the administration has kept very close, and in the eyes of many of us, too close, because it has a long history, going back to 2011 when it was part of a major reconciliation effort with the Taliban and we were consulted.”

From “FOX News Sunday” with retired four-star General Jack Keane on the security threat of the five released Taliban members as part of the swap: “As we speak right now, they are now reintegrating at least with the leadership of the Taliban, on the phone, or in the Internet. They have visitors from them.” Read more

DIANE SAWYER, HILLARY CLINTONIn advance of tonight’s first television interview with Hillary Clinton on the topic of her new book Hard Choices, ABC’s Diane Sawyer previewed the conversation on today’s “Good Morning America.”

On the topic of getting paid to give speeches, for which she’s rumored to rake in $200,000 an appearance, Clinton said, “Let me put it this way…I thought making speeches for money was a much better thing than getting connected with any one group or company as so many people who leave public life do.”

On Benghazi: ”I was the one ultimately responsible for my people’s safety, and I never felt that responsibility more deeply than I did that day.”

Hard Choices – Which Interview to Grant When

hillary-clinton-hard-choicesIn the latest installment of “Hard Choices – Which Interview to Grant When,” former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton opened up to PEOPLE magazine on becoming a grandmother and a 2016 run for president.

“I know I have a decision to make…But part of what I’ve been thinking about, is everything I’m interested in and everything I enjoy doing – and with the extra added joy of ‘I’m about to become a grandmother,’ I want to live in the moment. At the same time I am concerned about what I see happening in the country and in the world,” says Clinton in the June 16 issue of PEOPLE.

The former Senator and First Lady gave those comments in her “first at-home interview since the end of husband Bill’s presidency in January 2001.”

And it’s all about firsts in this media blitz for Clinton. 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

Hillary Clinton’s Hard Choices Author’s Note Released

hillary-clinton-hard-choicesHillary Clinton‘s Hard Choices is set to release June 10 and this morning, publisher Simon & Schuster released the book’s Author’s Notes to the morning shows and NPR.

“When I chose to leave a career as a young lawyer in Washington to move to Arkansas to marry Bill and start a family, my friends asked, ‘Are you out of your mind?’ ” writes Clinton in the note. “I heard similar questions when I took on health care reform as First Lady, ran for office myself, and accepted President Barack Obama’s offer to represent our country as Secretary of State. In making these decisions, I listened to both my heart and my head. I followed my heart to Arkansas; it burst with love at the birth of our daughter, Chelsea; and it ached with the losses of my father and mother.”

Whose Shoe Revealed

Hillary-1.Cover.Final[1]Yesterday we asked who and today the same shoe was featured on the cover of TIME Magazine, which just hit newsstands. The answer was quite obvious, especially for those who happened upon time.com yesterday and saw the cover of today’s magazine with the headline ‘Can Anyone Stop Hillary?’

So for this installment of Whose Shoe, the answer is Hillary Clinton, for which many readers answered correctly. And a big FishbowlDC props to The Nation‘s Caitlin Graf who was the first to correctly name whose shoe. A close second goes to Beth Kalet.

Said shoe is actually a photo-illustration by Justin Metz for TIME.

In the cover story, TIME examines the unprecedented position held by Hillary Clinton in American politics. Even without a campaign, Clinton dominates the 2016 discussion, wielding massive influence on her potential challengers and prompting forecasts of a landslide election victory.
