“I think I was struck by my early travels, where one of the most common questions I kept being asked, especially in the audience of young people at universities and elsewhere, is: How could you work with President Obama? You ran against him. Because still in democracies, even ones that we think of as fairly mature, that was just a totally bizarre idea that two people who were political foes could ever end up working together. … And my answer always was: Yes, I mean, we ran hard against each other. He tried to beat me, I tried to beat him. But he won, then he asked me to work for him. And I said yes because we both love our country. So I think that that message resonated with a lot of people and, again, I would stress particularly young people.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on working alongside her former opponent, Barack Obama, in Washington. This quote is just one tidbit of the Q&A — mostly about foreign policy — that Hillary did with TIME‘s editor-in-chief. As I read their conversation, I was blown away by her intelligence and intellect. I highly, highly recommend you read it, too!  [TIME] Keep reading »

  • Breathe easy, everyone: Sarah Palin is not seeking the GOP nomination for president. In a statement released yesterday, Palin said, “As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.” Translation: I can make a hell of a lot more money writing books, appearing on Fox News, and doing public speaking gigs. [ABC News]
  • Speaking of Palin, one of her former handlers, Nicole Wallace, has written a novel about a mentally ill vice presidential candidate. “The idea of a mentally ill vice president who suffers in complete isolation was obviously sparked by the behaviors I witnessed by Sarah Palin,” Wallace told The Hill. “What if somebody who was ill-equipped for the office were to ascend to the presidency or vice presidency? What would they do? How long would it take for people to figure it out?” Oh, dear. [The Hill]

Lefties, Righties Split On Food As Well

If you like deep-dish pizza, you’re a lot likelier than fans of thin crust to have conservative politics, according to Hunch, a taste-tracking website that cross-referenced millions of responses to discover that the differences between left and right don’t end at the dinner table. Among its findings:

  • Liberals are slightly more likely to prefer their vegetables fresh instead of cooked, and more likely to eat fruit at least once a week.
  • Conservatives tend to believe there’s little nutritional difference between organic and processed foods.

Bill Clinton Was Approached For “Dancing With The Stars”

“Actually, they contacted me once about ['Dancing with the Stars']. And I told them I didn’t have the time to train for it. You know you actually go out there and train — you really work at it. Just last night Hillary said to me, ‘You know, when I’m not Secretary of State anymore, we should go take dancing lessons.’ So we’ll start with the tango.”

Bill Clinton explains on “The Rachael Ray Show” that he was approached to do “Dancing with the Stars,” but turned it down because of the time commitment. Man, oh man, would I love to be a fly on the wall when Bill and Hillary take their tango lesson. I am now imaging Bill with a rose in his mouth. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi Calls German Chancellor Angela Merkel “Unf***able”

Wow, the tale of Italian prime minster Silvio Berlusconi keeps getting more and more sordid. This week, Italian prosecutors have charged eight people with sending prostitutes to Berlusconi’s infamous Bunga Bunga parties. The leader of the prostitution ring is one Giampaolo Tarantini, who is also being investigated for blackmailing Berlusconi in exchange for keeping his mouth closed about what went down. Currently, investigators are pouring over transcripts of conversations captured via wiretap, and are finding all sorts of scandalous details. Like that a famous Italian actress was allegedly offered a high profile national television gig if she’d sleep with Berlusconi. And in another phone conversation, between Berlusconi and a newspaper editor, Berlusconi is rumored to say that German chancellor Angela Merkel is “an unf**kable fat a**.” Yes, really.

And therein lies a big problem.

The 9 Juiciest Claims Made About Sarah Palin In “The Rogue”

the rogue book cover photo

Joe McGinniss is definitely on Sarah Palin‘s s**t list. McGinniss moved to Alaska, next door to the Palins, to write a tome, The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, which comes out on Tuesday. He engaged in some pretty sketchy reporting to make it happen, like bringing a gift to the Palin house and engaging Track in a conversation without disclosing his purpose for being there. But, the book also makes some amazingly juicy claims about Sarah Palin. For example, McGinniss alleges that she has cheated on Todd twice—once with an NBA star. Furthermore, he claims that Palin was once seen snorting cocaine. While snowmobiling.

Check out the details after the jump. Keep reading »
