Clinton: Iowans have great ideas for a better future

Hillary Clinton, Special to the Register 11:07 p.m. CDT April 26, 2015

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton smiles

When I came to Iowa, I wanted to do something a little different. No big speeches or rallies. Just talking directly with everyday Iowans. Because this campaign isn’t going to be about me, it’s going to be about Iowans and people across our country who are ready for a better future. It’s not enough to just get by, you deserve to get ahead and stay ahead. And everywhere I went, I met Iowans with great ideas for how we can get there.

No, Carly Fiorina, she did not mean you, and she laughed when asked if she did.

Bloomberg reporters  Elkin and Knowles  put together this tidy little package of Hillary-Martha collaborations from the past with videos.

Martha Stewart and Hillary Clinton: A History of Decorative Collaborations

Stewart hinted that she’s a Clinton fan on Saturday.

Lifestyle mogul Martha Stewart on Saturday signaled possible support for Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner.

“I like the lady that’s running,” Stewart told John Heilemann from the dinner’s red carpet event. Asked if by that she meant Republican Carly Fiorina, who is expected to announce her candidacy in early May, Stewart laughed.

As a long-time fan of BHL, I was delighted to find this excellent account of three meetings with Hillary whom he has long admired for reasons he makes crystal clear.  I simply had to share this.  I rarely come across a true must-read on a Sunday, but this is not to be missed.

Bernard-Henri Levy: Th​ree encounters with Hillary Clinton

NEW YORK, NY – APRIL 23: Democratic presidential hopeful and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton addresses the Women in the World Conference on April 23, 2015 in New York City. Clinton is in New York City after visiting Iowa and New Hampshire. Andrew Burton/Getty Images/AFP

July 2004. Boston.

A downtown restaurant to which Tina Brown has invited Hillary Rodham Clinton and a handful of notables, including Caroline Kennedy, filmmaker Michael Moore, and former U.S. Senator George McGovern.

What is immediately striking is Mrs. Clinton’s youthful appearance. Her bright laugh. Her blue eyes, a little too round, that gaze at you with curiosity. Sometimes that gaze is briefly clouded by a streak of stifled pain, obstinate and not wholly contained. Five years earlier, she was the most humiliated wife in America, a woman whose feelings, reactions, privacy, and bed linens were scrutinized by everyone. So she can talk national and international politics until she is blue in the face. She can sing the praises of John Kerry, whom her party has just nominated in an effort to deny George W. Bush a second term. She can expound on her notion of the role of the senator from New York, a role with which she pretends to be content. Still there persists an idea (of dubious political correctness) that it is impossible to push out of one’s head, one that I, at any rate, cannot resist the temptation of entering into the travel journal that I am writing for The Atlantic.

On her public speaking tour and then again on her Hard Choices book tour, Hillary made prominent stops in Nevada.  According to  her  campaign, Hillary will soon make another visit to Nevada – this time as a presidential candidate.

On her Hillary For America Facebook page there is a link to a Hillary for Nevada page, so keep your eye on that for further developments.  She is expected there May 5.  Unofficial reports have her moving on to California a few days later,  but this is unconfirmed at the moment.

The DVF Awards are presented following the close of the Women in the World Summit every year.   Last night’s event took place at the U.N.  Among the familiar faces are DVF herself, Tina Brown who hosts Women in the World, Gabriel Giffords, Melanne Verveer, Naomi Campbell and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

The DVF Awards – Honoring Extraordinary Women

This year marks the sixth anniversary of the DVF Awards. The DVF Awards were created in 2010 by Diane von Furstenberg and the Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation to honor and support extraordinary women who have had the courage to fight, the power to survive and the leadership to inspire. Women who have transformed the lives of others through their commitment, resources and visibility.

Hillary for America

Friend —

There’s a new book out — written by a former Republican operative with ties to a Koch-funded organization — that uses allegations and conspiracy theories to stitch together a false narrative about Hillary without producing a single shred of evidence.

Here’s what you need to know from some of the reviews so far:

  • TIME magazine says one of the book’s primary accusations “is based on little evidence” with allegations “presented as questions rather than proof.”
  • Yahoo News points out that the author “marshals circumstantial evidence” only to find “no smoking gun.”

We’re only two weeks into the election and we’re already up against these baseless attacks.

If we don’t fight back now, we send a signal to our opponents that we’ll shrivel in the face of whatever will follow.

This is an important moment in this campaign.

Sign your name to show you’ve got Hillary’s back — and forward this link to three friends you want to join us:


Thank you for doing what you can to support this effort.
