The Insiders: Is Hillary Clinton growing distant from her own party? As we reach the end of 2014, we find Hillary Clinton in an awkward situation within her own party.  That is, the Democratic Party’s energy appears to be emanating from a progressive, populist movement that the former secretary of state is not a part of.  The “Elizabeth Warren wing” of the Democratic Party is an ill fit for Hillary Clinton. She just isn’t suited to be an anti-Wall Street, fist-shaking populist; and I cringe to think of her trying to play that role in a campaign. Can she really lead the fight over income inequality? Anyway, the Clintons will forever be associated with the “good years” of the 1990s, what with the dot-com boom, strong economy, welfare reform and a new style of Democrat made popular by Bill Clinton. But the reality is that the Democratic Party has changed since then, and no Democrat espousing those issues could get nominated today. As popular as President Bill Clinton was — and really, still is — the core Democratic voters are not looking for a third Clinton term.  (17 hrs ago | post #784)

Hillary 'Can't Hide' From Failures As Secretary Of State, Vet Group Says CASEY HARPER, Daily Caller Could Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state come back and bite her with veterans in 2016? A conservative veterans group behind a new anti-Clinton video series thinks so. “As veterans, when we have friends who are still on active duty still going back to these conflicts without a clear mission it very much upsets us,” Dan Caldwell, Marine Corps veteran and legislative director for Concerned Veterans for America, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. ”The fact remains that Hillary Clinton was at the table and helped craft, drive, and implement a lot of these failed national security policies. She cannot walk away from that, and she cannot hide from that.” Caldwell said that Clinton has tried to spin her involvement with the botched foreign policy maneuvers of the Obama administration, but he said veterans won’t forget Hillary’s failures if she runs for president.  (Monday Dec 22 | post #781)

Report: Hillary Instrumental in Cuban Deal Washington Free Beacon: Hillary Clinton was the main architect of the deal reached with Cuba and her advocacy toward opening a new relationship with the Castro regime began almost immediately when she became secretary of state, according to a report from Bloomberg’s Josh Rogin. From 2009 until her departure in early 2013, Clinton and her top aides took the lead on the sometimes public, often private interactions with the Cuban government. According to current and former White House and State Department officials and several Cuba policy experts who were involved in the discussions, Clinton was also the top advocate inside the government for ending travel and trade restrictions on Cuba and reversing 50 years of U.S. policy to isolate the Communist island nation. Repeatedly, she pressed the White House to move faster and faced opposition from cautious high-ranking White House officials. [...] Clinton’s advocacy on behalf of opening a new relationship with Cuba began almost as soon as she came into office. Obama had campaigned on a promise to engage enemies, but the White House initially was slow to make good on that pledge, and on the Cuba front enacted only a modest relaxation of travel rules. From the start, Clinton pushed to hold Obama to his promise with regard to Cuba.  (Thursday Dec 18 | post #780)

Jesse Watters: Hillary Clinton 'Lenin in a Pantsuit' "I don't think Hillary's a skilled-enough politician to hide her radical roots from the American people," O'Re illy Factor corresponde nt Jesse Watters said of Hillary Rodham Clinton. He listed a number of recent statements by Clinton, including the assertion that businesses don't create jobs, supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants as well as siding against the Ferguson, Missouri, police department.  "She's another clumsy leftwing politician," Watters said. The #OneLuckyGuy noted that progressive Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (D), a very liberal woman, would push Clinton farther left during any prospective 2016 presidential runs by either politician. "She's going to look like Lenin in a pantsuit," he said.  (Tuesday Dec 9 | post #775)

Republicans tie Landrieu loss to Hillary On the heels of Sen. Mary Landrieu's (D-La.) crushing loss in Louisiana Senate, Republicans were quick to tie her defeat to the Democratic Party's heir apparant: Hillary Clinton.  Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus crowed that Louisianans had “rejected the Democrat agenda and the Obama-Clinton policies that have produced higher healthcare costs and job-killing regulations.” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a likely Republican presidential contender in 2016, also sought to hang the loss around Clinton, the frontrunner for the Democratic nominatio.  The final loser of 2014 #hillaryslosers pic.twitter.com/ya Zz9TZlTM — Senator Rand Paul (@SenRandPaul) December 7, 2014 The RNC said its new majority would allow it to pass the “pro-jobs legislation that was stalled in the Senate when Democrats were in control.” “Bill Cassidy will be a champion for policies that create jobs and grow the economy, especially building the Keystone Pipeline,” Priebus said in a statement. “And as a doctor treating the uninsured, he has seen firsthand how ObamaCare has hurt healthcare in this country and will work toward market-driven, patient-centered reforms. Americans’ priorities will be Republicans’ priorities in the new Senate.”   (Monday Dec 8 | post #774)

Oliver North: Hillary Clinton 'Just Wrote Off Being President of the United States ...' GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Listen to this. Former secretary of state and potential presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, speaking at a foreign policy conference and saying this: HILLARY CLINTON, FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE: This is what we call smart power, using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security, leaving no one on the sidelines, showing respect even for one's enemies, trying to understand and, insofar as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view, helping to define the problems to determine the solution. That is what we believe, in the 21st century, will change, change the prospects for peace.  (Friday Dec 5 | post #772)

Hillary Demands Diva Treatment On Speaking Tour By Ben Shapiro, Truth Revolt It was like a scene out of "The Princess and the Pea," only this was real life. Along with her $300,000 fee for her speech at UCLA , Hillary Clinton had a list of demands, one of which was "that the chairs be outfitted with two long, rectangular pillows — and that two cushions be kept backstage in case the chair was too deep and she needed additional back support." Through a Freedom of Information Act request the Washington Post received the emails exchanged between UCLA and Clinton's people as they were preparing for her March 5, 2014 speech at the school. "The documents show that Clinton’s representatives at the Harry Walker Agency exerted considerable control over her appearance and managed even the smallest details — from requesting lemon wedges and water on stage to a computer, scanner, and a spread of hummus and crudité in the green room backstage.    (Friday Nov 28 | post #768)

Romney tops Republican poll for 2016; ahead of Clinton in election WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Mitt Romney, the Republican Party's unsuccessful presidential nominee in 2012, leads the field for the 2016 election among Republican voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released on Wednesday. The former Massachusetts governor would have a slight edge over potential Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton by 45 percent to 44 percent in a general election, the poll found. Among possible Republican candidates, Romney's 19 percent put him ahead of former Florida governor Jeb Bush with 11 percent, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Ben Carson each with 8 percent each, and U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky with 6 percent.  (Wednesday Nov 26 | post #766)

By Matthew Continetti, The Washington Free Beacon The 2014 election was a disaster for Hillary Clinton. Why? Let us count the ways. She will have to run against an energetic and motivated Republican Party. If the GOP had failed to capture the Senate, the loss would have been more than demoralizing. It would have led to serious discussion of a third party. Donors would have reconsidered whether their spending was worth the reputational cost. Candidate recruitment efforts would have stalled. Republican voters would have asked why they bother to show up. The Republican circular firing squad, always a problem, wouldn’t use conventional weapons. They’d use ICBMs. Clinton would have loved to capitalize on this scenario. It would have enabled her to prolong strategic decisions such as how and when and to what degree she breaks from Obama. She would have claimed partial credit for saving the Senate. She would have promised to build on Democratic success. You would have been able to see her aura of inevitability for miles. But she has been denied. Instead she must calculate how to salvage the wreckage of 2014. She must convince Democrats that their savior is a grandmother who lives in a mansion on Massachusetts Avenue. It is her party that is shell shocked, not the GOP. Trust me: You don’t want to be in that position.  (Nov 7, 2014 | post #765)

Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin declared Tuesday’s midterm elections a loss for Hillary Clinton as she prepares to announce her candidacy for president in 2016. The Democrat’s election debacle disrupted Clinton’s campaign plan and added a new level of complexity to her camp’s operation. “The party is now in disarray,” Halperin said. “Hillary Clinton and her team are so cautious–they overthink, overanalyze everything–this gives them a lot of new complexity to deal with.” Complexity is especially important, because when talking the Clinton campaign, Halperin said, “this operation does not deal well with complexity.” Clinton’s managers now have serious decisions to make. Does she distance herself from Obama? Will she be a candidate of “compromise”? Will her agenda match that of the shaken Democratic Party? Halperin said he believes such questions do not bode well for Clinton. “I just think whatever plan they had, about how to proceed after the midterms in terms of potential announcement–consi dering even whether to run, it’s all thrown up in the air because no one expected the result they got.”  (Nov 6, 2014 | post #763)
