Statement by President Clinton on the passing of Joan Mondale
Hillary and I were saddened to learn of the passing of Joan Mondale. Joan was as wise and graceful in her role as our nation’s Second Lady as she was unwavering in her support of art and artists. From the state of Minnesota, to Washington DC, to our embassy in Japan, Joan was a singular American who happily devoted her life to her family, her considerable skills to public service, and her great charm to all who had the good fortune to know her. We were honored by our friendship with Joan and Fritz for more than 35 years, and our hearts and prayers go out to him, and to Ted, William, and their entire family.

CALGARY — She is the odds-on favourite right now to become the next President of the United States — if she decides to run for the position as one of the world’s most powerful and influential leaders.
But before then, Hillary Rodham Clinton, former U.S. Senator, Secretary of State, and first lady, will pay a visit to Calgary.
Clinton will have a public speaking engagement in the city the morning of Thursday March 6 at the Telus Convention Centre. Tickets for the event will go on sale Tuesday through Ticketmaster.
The event is being produced by Calgary entrepreneurs Christian Darbyshire and Andy McCreath of tinePublic Inc., which in the past has brought to the city such well-known personalities as former U.S. president George W. Bush, former British prime minister Tony Blair, Oprah Winfrey and former California governor and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Not only did this tweet go viral, it pushed Hillary past a million Twitter followers. WTG Hillary! (We always knew you had a great sense of humor although it was apparently news to some.)
I thought this was cute and worth sharing.
By now, the winner of Super Bowl XLVIII should be obvious. In a performance that took football oddsmakers by surprise, the trophy went to…

When Politico fashions a story out of nothing but old scraps and ascribes their imaginary “shadow campaign” to Hillary, the internet burns up with commentary and articles about articles about the article. The New York Times justifies its assignment of a single reporter to the Hillary Clinton beat with a Sunday Magazine feature, and both the article and the other-worldly cover draw such attention that the reporter, like a moon reflecting the light of the sun, is suddenly a celebrity herself appearing on CNN and C-SPAN and granting a self-congratulatory interview to a New York Times blogger about how she broke through into the Clinton inner circle. Yet when a reasoned analysis of the subject of Hillary’s much maligned and largely unread honors thesis from Wellesley appears in two digestible parts in Forbes, like a tree falling in the forest, not a sound emanates.
I fully expected, upon wading into Ralph Benko’s The Secret Hillary Rodham Clinton, to find yet another right-wing slam complete with name-calling and labels galore. Instead, to my astonishment, I found well-balanced and informative piece with a fair assessment not only of Saul Alinsky but also of the degree to which Hillary’s study of the man, his methods, and his mission impacted her political trajectory.
Links to Hillary’s thesis (a scan of a rough draft) have been available online for years. In his opus, Mr. Benko provides yet another. Not having linked to the hit jobs published by Politico and the NYT, I provide these links without hesitation and dub them my must-reads for the month. You may or may not agree with everything in Mr. Benko’s analysis, but you will find yourself in an atmosphere of intellectual inquiry that has been rare in connection to any piece about Hillary Clinton in many a moon.
This Hillary has been a secret only to the extent that people have not gone on a search for her. We can thank Mr. Benko and Forbes for shining a light here.
