The latest release of some 7,000 emails from Hillary Clinton’s private email server overflows with gushing congratulations and praise as the former secretary of state came to the end of her time in the Obama administration.
Tales from the Trail
Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has already accused rival Jeb Bush of being low energy. Now he’s accused Democratic contender Hillary Clinton of lacking strength. Sure, he has already called her the worst secretary of state in the history of the country, but that’s just politics. Now it’s personality.
Republican Marco Rubio released his first television ad over the weekend, striking a noticeably gloomy tone that quickly drew attention on social media.
Ohio Governor John Kasich, trying to break out of a lower tier of candidates in the Republican presidential primary race, is using the Paris attacks as a pivot point to sketch out his approach to rebuilding American military power. “Let’s get through this period of time.
