How did I miss this? Damn! Oh, I know. I had my nose buried in Woodward’s Fear! Serves me right for not lightening up after this grueling day.

Hillary Clinton Guest Stars in ‘Murphy Brown’ Premiere as Secretarial Candidate

Hillary Clinton was the first big name cameo of “Murphy Brown’s” revival season.

Clinton appeared in the Sept. 27 premiere of the Candice Bergen-led sitcom — but not as herself. Instead, she was “Hilary,” a woman who said she is often mistaken for the former presidential candidate but actually spells her name with only one “L.” She arrived at Murphy’s new cable news show, “Murphy in the Morning,” to interview for the “secretarial position.”

“Your reputation proceeds you, but I want you to know I’m not afraid of hard work, I’m qualified, and I’m ready on day one,” Clinton said to Murphy at the start of her interview.

Murphy went on to ask if she had any secretarial experience (“For four years I was the secretary … of a very large organization,” she replied) and if she had experience with technology and teamwork.

“I do have some experience with emails,” she said. And on the topic of how many people it takes to run a production, she relied on another one of her campaign mottos: “Everyone works together, it takes a village.”

With a new book to promote, Hillary Clinton is preparing to re-enter the public eye. Her first stop: a sit-down with Jane Pauley on “CBS Sunday Morning” this coming weekend.

It will be Clinton’s first television interview since the 2016 presidential campaign, and the first interview about her memoir, “What Happened,” a retrospective on her failed White House bid that will officially hit shelves next week.

For Pauley and CBS, the booking is a coup. Clinton has mostly kept a low profile since her stunning loss to Donald Trump last year. She’s been photographed on walks through the woods and in other random locations, but her interactions with the media have been limited.

Clinton did give an interview to New York Magazine in May in which she called the election night loss to Trump “a crushing, devastating blow.”

Yesterday in Cincinnati, Hillary sat down with Charlie Rose.  A portion of the interview aired this morning on CBS.  The full interview aired on PBS this afternoon.  It may repeat at 11 EDT tonight.

Charlie tried to cajole her into giving him a running-mate scoop.  She stood firm.

Charlie tried also to wear her down on the “unpopular” meme, and she laughed charmingly, told him she got a lot of votes, thinks she’s pretty popular, and intends to be more popular.  We agree, Hillary!

With Jake Tapper on CNN’s State of the Union, Hillary discussed, among other things, the water crisis in Flint, Michigan (where she is going today), the Sanders campaign allegations on banking influences, and the “shout out” from male pundits.


  1. She is very well-informed on the subject of lead poisoning from both a medical and an infrastructure point of view.  She knows what needs to be done, medically, for the children exposed to the toxic water, and she also knows what needs to be done to the water lines. Do any other candidates from either party have the battery of information on this subject that Hillary has?DSCN2808 DSCN2809
  2. She explained, once again, how her financial plan is broader than Bernie Sanders’s plan as she also is going after giant corporations that gouge the public and evade taxes. She said she doesn’t understand why he doesn’t join her in this battle. DSCN2820
  3. As to the shouting, she said we all know that we are still dealing with a double standard and that sexism is not a thing of the past. By the way, anyone who listened to her at her Portsmouth event last night must admit that her normal tone at rallies is conversational not the full-volume blast that Bernie continually puts out.DSCN2822 DSCN2823 DSCN2824


Great quote: “Anger’s not a plan and venting’s not a strategy.”

On This Week with George Stephanopoulos, she voiced her appreciation of Bernie’s SNL stint. She also took on the extreme remarks of Marco Rubio on abortion in last night’s GOP debate. There, too,  she took on the spin about the bankruptcy bill – specifically with regard to the effect of the proposals on separated and divorced women and their children. She said she is not going to take the Sanders smears anymore, but largely, she was arguing against comments by Elizabeth Warren there.  As to the Goldman Sachs speeches, she said everyone who has given speeches to private organizations should then release their transcripts and the standard, if this is going to be the new standard, should apply to all.

She also discussed the Flint situation on Meet the Press.  (That repeats later on MSNBC.)  She was on Face the Nation as well.  That repeats later on CBSN.

Charlie Rose interviewed Hillary in two segments that aired on “CBS This Morning” today.  She spoke about her plan to combat ISIS: sending combat troops would not be her strategy.  She also addressed her Wall St. ties.  She said anyone who thinks support from Wall St. would influence her does not know her.  As to why she is running for president, with the White House in the background, she said it is not to move back in there.  She called this election a watershed moment when we can either get the economy back on track for the majority, or we will find ourselves back in the economy of the 1920s.  The full interview will re-air this evening on Charlie Rose’s PBS program.


Later today, she will be in Montgomery, Alabama keynoting an event commemorating Rosa Parks and the bus boycott that began with her refusal to give up her seat.

Hillary Clinton details plan to defeat ISIS, defends ties to Wall Street

In her first television interview since the Paris attacks, Hillary Clinton spoke to “CBS This Morning” co-host Charlie Rose about her plans to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and controversies over her ties with Wall Street.

Sticking by President Obama’s current strategy, the former secretary of state said she could not “conceive of any circumstances” where she would agree to send American combat troops to fight ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

“We don’t know yet how many Special Forces… trainers and surveillance and enablers might be needed,” Clinton told Rose at the Hay Adams, across the White House. “But in terms of thousands of combat troops like some on the Republican side are recommending… it should be a non-starter, both because I don’t think it’s the smartest way to go after ISIS – I think it gives ISIS a new recruitment tool if we get back in the fight.”

Covering topics from Benghazi to Syria, from The Donald to the Dems, and from health care to the economy,  Hillary Clinton sat down with John Dickerson for a Sunday morning in depth one-on-one.  She was detailed, authoritative, and unhesitating in response to a wide range of questions and thoroughly relaxed in her signature warm and personable way.

Hillary reminded the audience that when Benghazi was under attack other embassies also were being threatened, i.e. more than one mission (anywhere from 12-18) was under some form of assault.  Benghazi was one of these.

She also spoke of her efforts early to to prevent the crisis we see today for the Syrian people – efforts that have been outlined here many times before.

While she faulted Donald Trump in particular for fostering a toxic, biased atmosphere, and Republican candidates in general for attacking policies and programs from Planned Parenthood to Obamacare, she refused to make any statement about Democratic opponents declared or otherwise.  She made it crystal clear that the battle right now is between the major parties and not among Democrats.   She also made it clear that she considers Bernie Sanders to be under the latter umbrella. “I want this to be about ideas and about policies.” She stated that she has no interest in attacking Bernie. (I hope everyone on her side of the campaign heard that loud and clear.)

As for persistent declarations that her persona is inauthentic, she laughed it all off rather musically.  That is the real Hillary, folks!

Below is the full video.

Hillary Clinton: U.S. should take 65,000 Syrian refugees

Last Updated Sep 20, 2015 10:58 AM EDT

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Sunday that the United States should accept 65,000 refugees from Syria to help alleviate the humanitarian crisis created by the war there.

“We’re facing the worst refugee crisis since the end of World War II and I think the United States has to do more,” the former secretary of state said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “I would like to see us move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000 and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people that we would take in.”

She said there should be a focus on admitting the most vulnerable, like persecuted religious minorities, or those who had been brutalized, like the Yazidi women.

Clinton also said, “I want the United States to lead the world,” and said the United Nations Secretary General should call for a meeting at the upcoming U.N. General Assembly meeting in which countries make specific commitments about to provide money and aid.

Hillary Clinton: I’m not preparing for Joe Biden

Hillary Clinton said she and her team are not taking steps to prepare for a possible late entry into the Democratic presidential primary by Vice President Joe Biden.

“This is such a personal decision and the vice president has to sort this out,” Clinton said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “He’s been so open in talking about how difficult this time is for him and his family and he’s obviously considering what he wants to do including whether he wants to run.”

“I just have the greatest respect and affection for him and I think everybody just ought to give him the space to decide what’s best for his family,” she added.
