We loved and admired Louise Slaughter. She was a force to be reckoned with on Capitol Hill—skilled and smart, funny and fierce. For more than 30 years, she worked to bring the people of Western New York new economic opportunities. She was also one of the most effective advocates for health care reform, a respected voice for science, and one of our most important champions for women’s rights, including her co-authorship of the Violence Against Women Act. Her leadership and her wonderful laugh will be missed, but her legacy will live on in the young people she inspired to do public service and the countless Americans whose lives are better and healthier because of her remarkable career. We are grateful to have been her friends.

This visit took place in January of this year.

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton traveled to the summit of Maunakea in early January 2018 and learned about the cultural, natural and scientific significance of the mountain.

The Clintons were shown culturally and geologically important sites before touring the W. M. Keck Observatory, one of the largest and most scientifically important optical/infrared telescopes in the world. After watching the sunset from Hawaiʻi’s highest peak at nearly 14,000 feet, the Clintons returned to Halepōhaku at the 9,200 foot elevation for stargazing.

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo’s Department of Physics and Astronomy set up two, 9.25-inch telescopes, one with an attached camera capturing images viewed through the telescope. The Clintons were in awe during the 90 minutes of viewing the overwhelming number of stars that can be seen from Maunakea.

“We showed them the Orion nebula, Pleiades open cluster and Andromeda galaxy, and towards the end, Mrs. Clinton chose a couple of objects and moved the telescope herself,” said Marianne Takamiya, UH Hilo astronomy chair. Takamiya hosted the stargazing along with UH Institute for Astronomy astronomer Mark Chun, Waiākea High School senior Alicia Chun and UH Hilo astronomy student Mitchel Rudisel.

“Getting to show the Clintons different nebula and galaxies while sitting below one of the darkest skies in the world was an unforgettable experience,” said Rudisel.

Hillary and I are saddened by the passing of our friend Billy Graham, one of the most important religious leaders in American history. His powerful words and the conviction they carried touched countless hearts and minds.

I will never forget the first time I saw him, 60 years ago in Little Rock, during the school integration struggle. He filled a football stadium with a fully integrated audience, reminding them that we all come before God as equals, both in our imperfection and our absolute claim to amazing grace.

Later as Governor, in the White House, and afterward, I saw him live that faith fully in the constant kindness, encouragement, and counsel he extended to Hillary and me.

Billy has finished his long good race, leaving our world a better place and claiming his place in glory.

Bill and Hillary Clinton celebrated Presidents Day by taking grandkids, Charlotte and Aidan, to see Sesame Street Live. The following night, Hillary and Chelsea had a girls’ night out. Great pics here! I’ll say it right up front: I take issue with the word failed here. Ripped off is more like it.

  • The following day, Hillary was spotted grabbing dinner with her daughter Chelsea at Upland, an upscale restaurant near Madison Square Park 
  • The failed presidential candidate was given a standing ovation as she entered the restaurant  

Bill and Hillary Clinton have been on grandparent duty this week, coming down to New York City to spend some quality time with their two grandchildren.

On Monday, which happened to be president’s day, the former president and failed presidential candidate took their three-year-old granddaughter Charlotte and one-year-old grandson Aiden to Sesame Street Live in Madison Square Garden.

It was the second year that Hillary had treated her kids to the show. During last year’s show, Aiden was still a baby and had to be carried around by his mom. This year, he spent part of the time sitting on his grandpa’s lap, while Charlotte took a seat next to her grandma.

Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton attended the MusiCares Person of the Year honoring Fleetwood Mac at Radio City Music Hall on January 26, 2018 in New York City.

Former president Bill Clinton will always share a bond with the music of Fleetwood Mac, first using the band’s Don’t Stop as his campaign theme for 1992 presidential run, and hosting several Fleetwood Mac performances during his time in office.

Clinton reunited with the band onstage Friday night to present them with the MusiCares Person of the Year award, with the Grammys-associated charity honoring the group for their creative accomplishments and contributions to charitable causes.

“I did win two Grammys, and I also have a date tonight who won a Grammy herself — Hillary came with me tonight,” Clinton said, as the crowd gave Hillary a standing ovation.

You might have heard that there was a fire today at the Clinton compound in Chappaqua. It was in a Secret Service facility and was quickly contained. No one was injured, and the Clintons were not home at the time.

(CNN) A small fire broke out in a US Secret Service facility on the property of the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, New York, on Wednesday.

The building was not connected to the home of the former US President and former US Secretary of State, and the Clintons were not there at the time of the fire, Hillary Clinton Communications Director Nick Merrill tweeted.

The fire was put out and nobody was injured, said Sgt. Arthur Mendoza of the New Castle Police Department.

The former first couple bought the home before Hillary Clinton’s successful 2000 run for a US Senate seat.

Chappaqua is about 40 miles north of New York City.
