This blog turned nine years old this month. On Sunday, Salon re-published an interview with Hillary Clinton from 10 years ago. It has never been posted here before and makes for some very interesting reading!


Hillary Clinton was interviewed over the telephone by Salon [on June 14, 2007] before she flew to New Hampshire.

The first time I interviewed you was in the governor’s mansion in Little Rock in 1992. So I was tempted to ask: Anything happen in your life since then?

Oh, I don’t know. What’s new with you?

Rebecca Traister was recently given unusually extended access to Hillary, interviewing her over a period of months this Spring and ending just this morning at Wellesley.  This profile is set for the May 29 issue of New York Magazine. It’s a hefty weekend read. There might be tears. Just saying.

Hillary Clinton Is Furious. And Resigned. And Funny. And Worried.

The surreal post-election life of the woman who would have been president.

Hillary backstage at a speech in May.

  2:36 pm

When I walk into the Chappaqua dining room in which Hillary Clinton is spending her days working on her new book, I am greeted by a vision from the past. Wearing no makeup and giant Coke-bottle glasses, dressed in a gray mock-turtleneck and black zip sweatshirt, Hillary looks less Clinton and more Rodham than I have ever seen her outside of college photographs. It’s the glasses, probably, that work to make her face look rounder, or maybe just the bareness of her skin. She looks not like the woman who’s familiar from television, from newspapers, from America of the past 25 years, but like the 69-year-old version of the young woman who came to the national stage with a wackadoodle Wellesley commencement speech in 1969. With no more races to run and no more voters to woo with fancy hair, Clinton appears now as she might have if she’d aged in nature and not in the crucible of American politics. Still, this is not Hillary of the woods. She is reemerging, giving speeches and interviews. It’s clear that she is making an active choice to remain a public figure.

It’s the day after Donald Trump has fired FBI director James Comey, the man who many — including Clinton — believe is responsible for the fact that she is spending this Wednesday in May working at a dining-room table in Chappaqua and not in the Oval Office. Clinton checks with her communications director, Nick Merrill, about what’s happened in the past hour — she’s been exercising — and listens to the barrage of updates, nodding like a person whose job requires her to be up-to-date on what’s happening, even though it does not.

“I am less surprised than I am worried,” she says of the Comey firing. “Not that he shouldn’t have been disciplined. And certainly the Trump campaign relished everything that was done to me in July and then particularly in October.” But “having said that, I think what’s going on now is an effort to derail and bury the Russia inquiry, and I think that’s terrible for our country.”

ICYMI: Hillary Clinton Appears on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show”

Today, Hillary Clinton appeared on Steve Harvey’s morning show to discuss her campaign built on the belief that we are stronger together when we are inclusive. Clinton laid out her plans to help African American families by building an economy for all, make college affordable and supporting Historically Black Colleges and Universities.  Clinton also addressed the death of Terence Crutcher and said, “…this is just unbearable, and it needs to be intolerable.”

Sooner or later it was going to happen.  There would come a Sunday when Hillary would have to go into the Foxhole.  Today was that day and she did very well.  Even in interviews it is hard to defend yourself when the host controls the content.  Here are her full remarks at the transfer of remains ceremony at Andrews and she absolutely did use the word terror.

I think she did a beautiful job here, and Chris Wallace did not make it easy.  For those who say she is not warm and not “human” watch her talking about that speech and her daughter.  Also watch her reaction to the question about Pat Smith in comparison to how Donald Trump is tweeting about the Khans today.

When Hillary sat down with Huffington Post‘s Sam Stein, she turned the tables and started by asking him a question.  He concluded by thanking her for not blacklisting HuffPo.

Transcript: Hillary Clinton’s Interview With The Huffington Post

The presumptive Democratic nominee addressed a number of foreign and domestic topics.

06/15/2016

Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, spoke with The Huffington Post by phone for roughly 10 minutes on Wednesday, discussing everything from gun control and drone policy to campus rape and women in the military. 

Below is the full transcript from the interview. It has been edited for clarity.

Hillary Clinton: Great to talk to you, Sam. Aren’t you from one of the [Trump-]banned publications?

The Huffington Post: Yes, and our group is growing bigger. We have a real crew now.

I think there should be some kind of badge of honor that you all put on.

The day after claiming the Democratic nomination for president, Hillary was all over the TV networks tonight. She appeared with Anderson Cooper on CNN discussing such topics as party unity, Bill Clinton’s possible role in her administration, and her pick for Veep.

In the post mortem, Jeffrey Toobin said what someone should have long ago: that there is a word for what happened to Bernie Sanders – he lost and needs to get over it.  Toobin said the party has coddled Sanders long enough, and it is time for him to get in line.  He said Hillary cannot tell Bernie this, but President Obama can and, he supposes, probably will at their meeting tomorrow. He backed up his statement by arguing that Hillary got the most votes, the most delegates, and the most states.  Case closed as far as he is concerned.

Hillary also spent some time last night before her big speech last night with ABC’s David Muir. The segment aired on World News Tonight.

Before Hillary left the west coast, she also sat down with Mario Lopez, and that segment aired tonight as well.  It was very short and focused on the history of the moment.

Finally, Lester Holt interviewed Hillary for the Nightly News.  She rejected the notion that Bernie Sanders brought any new ideas to the table but praised the passion he inspired.  Lawrence O’Donnell replayed this at 10 EDT on MSNBC.

Lawrence O’Donnell  ended his hour recalling that other California primary. The 1968 one. I did not cry last night when Hillary claimed the nomination. I knew she was going to do it, and thank God. She is healthy and fine. But 1968….. I woke up early in the morning and the TV was on. I asked my husband – “Why are they talking about JFK?” He said, “They are talking about his brother.”

The cortege went through NJ by train on the way to D.C. People lined the tracks the whole way. It still hurts after all these years. Eight years ago, after suspending her campaign, Hillary Clinton went to the fields of California and began campaigning for the Obama/Biden ticket. She had, long before that, filled the Bobby space in my heart along with his Senate seat. Where she went and what she did after accepting defeat was so much like Bobby as were her visions and plans as laid out in her campaign that year. There is a grace in what she did.  There was a grace in Bobby.

Chip in something if you can and continue to help make history!
