Check out that screaming red headline on the DrudgeReport.com claiming Hillary Clinton is America's new secretary of state! The report comes from U.K. paper The Guardian, which says Hillary has accepted Barack Obama's offer.
The New York Senator will replace Condoleezza Rice for the top spot.
While Hillary was being considered, reports surfaced that insiders were concerned about hubby Bill's international business dealings through his charitable Clinton Global Initiative. His donor list was reported to include names of international figures with policies that could conflict with the new administration.
The New York Times has reported the list includes members of the Saudi royal family, the king of Morocco, a fund connected to the United Arab Emirates and figures connected to human rights abuses (which Hillary has criticized).
Bill has reportedly raised more than $500 million for the foundation, portions of which finance his presidential library, AIDS relief in Africa and other charitable causes.
Former President Bill Clinton has some thoughts on who should occupy his former home at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue -- and he shared his two cents with the ladies of "The View."
"I believe Obama will win," Clinton states matter-of-factly. Bill shared that he believes conditions are right for Dems to reclaim the presidency -- and reveals that wife Hillary didn't want to play second-in-command on Barack's ticket! "Not really, no," Bill admitted, when asked if Hill wanted to be VP.
When asked about the former Hillary supporters who threw their support to McCain after the GOP nom chose Sarah Palin as a running mate, Clinton responded, "We vote for some people because we identify with them on race or gender... it's not an entirely rational process, and it's different for everybody." He adds, "You can't tell someone else that the grounds on which they make their voting decision is irrational."
The former Commander-in-Chief went on to say that he believes sexism has been a factor in the race -- and that the debates could change everything.
This weekend's "SNL" skit with Sarah Palin standing alongside Hillary Clinton was all in good fun, but Hillary won't let that happen!
Clinton aides say the NY Senator has canceled an appearance at a NY rally next week, after organizers decided to extend the invite to the Republican VP candidate, who has not confirmed. The rally was organized by numerous American Jewish groups to protest Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the United Nations.
Clinton aides were so furious at the news of Palin potentially attending, Team Hillary backed out. Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines told the press, "This was never billed as a partisan political event. Sen. Clinton will therefore not be attending." It doesn't look these two will be pals any time soon.
"Extra" caught up with "Lakeview Terrace" star Samuel L. Jackson at the junket for his latest flick -- and, like many stars, Sam took the opportunity to voice his opinions about the presidential race.
Jackson lamented the fact that candidates aren't focusing on the issues, saying, "It's race versus gender now -- it's not about the issues anymore."
He's not the only one concerned with issues. On "Good Morning America," Senator Hillary Clinton shared her own political frustrations -- but focused on her fear that female voters may cast their ballot for McCain simply because he chose a woman as his running mate. "So many people are missing the boat here," Clinton shared with Diane Sawyer. "You can be excited about someone being nominated for vice-president, but that's not a good enough reason to vote for that ticket."
Sarah Palin's overnight popularity with voters fueled talk that Hillary Clinton may have been a better VP choice for Obama's presidential ticket -- and Barack's running mate Joe Biden doesn't necessarily disagree!
"She's easily qualified to be Vice-President of the United States of America," Biden said of the NY Senator and former First Lady. "Quite frankly, she might have been a better pick than me -- but she's first rate." Keep Reading...
FOX news anchor Shepard Smith is gearing up for the presidential showdown between John McCain and Barack Obama -- now, he's sounding off to "Extra" about the so-called GOP slant of his network, and who he thinks McCain should choose as his veep!
After scandalous allegations of another Bill Clinton affair surfaced in Vanity Fair, the ex-president lost it, calling reporter Todd Purdum "sleazy." Now "Extra" has an exclusive with Gennifer Flowers -- a ghost from Clinton's past -- and she's back to haunt him, dishing on everything from Bill and Hillary to her vote for president.
Flowers is teaming up with another alleged other woman -- Paula Jones -- for an explosive new website, GenniferandPaula.com. For the first time, they're making their private Clinton secrets public. "We wanted to announce to the world that we had met and we're now friends," said Gennifer, adding, "I think it's honest and straightforward."
Flowers also has advice for Senator Hillary -- and why she thinks that she didn't nab the White House. "I think Bill's been a hindrance to her," said Gennifer, adding, "My advice to Hillary would be Keep Reading...
