Lincoln Chafee got ahead of his own campaign on Thursday over a possible bid to challenge Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.
Tales from the Trail
An interesting deep dive on the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) and the way it funds its charity work around the world by the Boston Globe. “It was our mistake,” Ira Magaziner, CHAI’s chief executive officer, tells the Globe in response to a Reuters’ report last month that revealed that the Clinton Foundation offshoot had breached a transparency promise to President Barack Obama by not publishing donor names while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.
NEW YORK – Hillary Clinton filled the online video that launched her run for the White House on Sunday with what her team call “everyday Americans”, whom she said she would champion. But her campaign team soon found themselves in disagreement with some of the voters who starred in the short film alongside Clinton on an unexpected question: Who was holding the camera?
Hillary Clinton has said she wants to have a “conversation” with voters to kick off her second presidential bid. Her campaign aides have said to expect her visiting much smaller venues than you might expect. It all got underway on Tuesday when Clinton showed up at the Jones St. Java House in Le Claire, Iowa, a quaint town on the Mississippi River that borders neighboring Illinois.
Hillary Clinton made the first stops of her 2016 presidential campaign in Iowa on Tuesday, rolling into the state in her “Scooby” van with several aides and her security detail. Clinton left her home in Chappaqua, New York, on Sunday, when she announced on social media she was launching her second presidential campaign. It was her idea to drive the 15 or so hours to Iowa, an early-voting state where U.S. presidential candidates spend a lot of time.
Jimmy Carter got a big hand and roar of approval from a festive and perhaps somewhat charitable crowd on Monday at the second inauguration of President Barack Obama.
