Last May, Hillary Clinton sat down with Christiane Amanpour at the Women for Women International Luncheon and told her that but for James Comey’s letter of October 28, 2016, she probably would have won the election, a theory she fleshes out in her memoir What Happened.

Hillary supporters had a new date to add to the list of days that we will never forget as October 28 joined May 31, 2008 – the day the Democratic Party Rules and Bylaws Committee altered the delegate count in the wake of the primaries that year.

So here we are a year later. CNN chose to commemorate the day with a chronological look at social media one year ago today for the record of how attitudes changed over the course of the day.

Reliving the day Hillary Clinton says cost her the election, one year later


You’ve got to love Hillary!

Christiane Amanpour conducted an interview with Hillary Clinton at the annual Women for Women International luncheon today in New York City.

Clinton blames Comey letter, Russian interference for election loss

As always happens when Hillary Clinton speaks about anything, far too many folks latch onto what they want to hear instead of what she actually said. They slam her without regard to context and extenuating circumstances that prevent her from giving the answer they want or actually deserve. The Women for Women International gathering in New York City on Tuesday was the cause of the latest smackdowns of Clinton.

The Post’s Dave Weigel took apart the erroneous snap assessment of her comments on high-speed broadband. So, after having watched her 35-minute interview with CNN chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour and having read the transcript, I’m going to dive into this maddening business that Clinton refuses to take responsibility for her loss. My snap take: Dammit, people!

Hillary Clinton with the RNC squirrel.

A Republican National Committee intern dressed in a furry orange squirrel costume has been following Hillary Clinton on the media tour for her book “Hard Choices.” On Tuesday, Clinton confronted her squirrely stalker – by giving them a signed copy of her book.

The encounter occurred outside the Newseum in Washington D.C. where Clinton was participating in a town hall-style interview that aired on CNN. ABC News posted a video showing Clinton’s chat with the squirrel.

“Hello Mr. Squirrel,” Clinton said as she stepped out of her car. “How are you?”

Hmmmmm… this speech was never announced or publicized!  The event was kept pretty quiet, but there is a slideshow here.

Clinton, Amanpour Headline Global Fund for Women Gala

Global Fund for Women’s 25th Anniversary is a party with a purpose. On Wednesday, April 17th, we will celebrate 25 years as the world’s leading funder of women’s rights, and recognize some of the extraordinary women leading the way to equality and justice around the world.

CNN’s Christiane Amanpour anchors the sold out event. The Hon. Rodham Hillary Clinton will deliver the keynote speech and honor Charlotte Bunch, one of the brains behind UN Women. Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood Federation of America will present the inaugural Charlotte Bunch Human Rights Defender awards to three extraordinary women from Colombia, Egypt and Serbia. Jennifer Buffett and Jacquelyn Zehner will be honored with Global Philanthropy Awards.

Hillary Clinton reacts to Boston bombing

(CNN)“I’ve been obsessed the last few days as I’m sure a number of you have been about the terrible violence and loss of life and injury in Boston,” she said. “Like so many Americans and those watching around the world, we saw ordinary citizens alongside first responders rushing into danger to help. It was a tragic terrible day, but it seemed to exemplify what Patriots Day really means, because we do better when we work together. Women and men, all of us across every line that is used to divide us.

With Angela Merkel and our Hillary Clinton topping the ridiculously unbalanced  Forbes list of 100 Most Powerful Women,  I did not have much hope for a more serious list of Most Powerful Couples of 2012.   I was not wrong.  The Clintons top the list with the Gateses #2 and the Obamas #3, but beyond #5, Diane Sawyer and Mike Nichols,  this list is as wildly incoherent as the list of powerful women – maybe more so.

Here is the gallery.

One might argue that this is a more difficult list to develop since both members must exert power, but like the 100 Most Powerful Women list, this one is most eloquent in who is missing.   Where are foundation head  Cherie and Quartet Envoy Tony Blair?  They are less important than entertainers, models, and sports figures?

Seriously?  Shakira and Gerard Pique?  Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady?  They merit appearing on this list?  Beyonce and Jay-Z outrank Christane Amanpour and Jaimie Rubin,  Diane Von Furstenberg and Barry Diller, AND Tina Brown and Harold Evans?  Why Ellen DeGeneres and Portia?  Where is the “Portia power?”  Seems they were gratuitously included just to have a gay couple there, but to rank them above Tina Brown whose Newsweek endorsed Romney a few days ago and Evans, whose September Condé Nast Traveler features in depth coverage of a tour of Asia by the secretary of state seems patently ridiculous.

Forbes, please be serious.  We love seeing our Clintons honored, but give it some heft.

The World’s Most Powerful Couples In 2012

Jenna Goudreau, Forbes Staff

Who says women can’t have it all? On the 2012 FORBES list of the world’s 100 most powerful women, 70% are married, with an average 2.1 kids. Often, these women don’t do it alone. Some have the help of extended family or a stay-at-home husband. Others marry their power equals and scramble to make it work. Here’s a look at the world’s most powerful couples, and what it takes to house two top careers under one roof.

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton and current U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton together form the world’s top power pair. Hillary, the second most powerful woman in the world, made history as one of a handful of women to ever run for U.S. president. In her current role, she is the nation’s chief foreign advisor and is constantly on the go, traveling to over 40 countries in 2012 alone. Meanwhile, Bill served two presidential terms as ruler of the world’s largest economy and remains an active diplomat today.
