At a town hall in the Congo, a student stepped up to the microphone to ask Hillary Clinton
about a loan China recently offered the Democratic Republic of Congo. “What does Mr. Clinton
think, through the mouth of Mrs. Clinton?”
Hillary stared at him. “You want me to tell you what my husband thinks? My husband isn’t Secretary of State. I am,” she said. “If you want my opinion, I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channeling my husband.” Keep reading »
It’s as if Bill Clinton boarded a plane, showed up in North Korea, said “Abracadabra!” and had Laura Ling and Euna Lee home minutes later. The two Current TV reporters are officially back in America and have been reunited with their families. We are ecstatic to hear this amazing news, but are dying to know—what exactly did Clinton do to get them released so quickly? Our best theories after the jump. Keep reading »
Bill Clinton to the rescue! Slick Willy is currently in North Korea, trying to negotiate the release of American journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who’ve been sentenced to 12 years of hard labor for “illegal activity” after entering North Korea to report on Korean refugees. North Korea’s nuclear negotiator, Kim Kye Gwan, greeted Clinton at the airport, which has led many people to think that North Korea might try to use the women as a bargaining chip with the U.S. over their use of nuclear weapons. Bill insists that he’s avoiding that sticky issue, but even if he does get sucked into that debate, I gotta hand it to Bill, his timing is totally brilliant. North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Il, is pretty sick—he may have pancreatic cancer, though people aren’t sure how bad it is because the government is so secretive. However, Kim Jong II is gonna be dying (pun!) for a photo shoot with the ex-prez. If he doesn’t make the photo-op, people are going to know he’s in really bad shape. [LA Times]
All of this sounds great—Clinton hopefully will be able to make some inroads in freeing Laura and Euna and do some reconnaissance work regarding North Korea’s government. But we do have one question—where’s Secretary of State Hillary? Keep reading »

The city of Denver’s official website says there are about 50,000 people attending the 2008 Democratic National Convention, including delegates, visitors, politicians and media. That’s a whole lot of people. And what do these people do, besides wave signs that read, “Unity” and shout “Yes, we can!”? They consume food and beverages and, therefore, have to relieve themselves a lot. The New York Post reports that despite efforts for equal restroom rights at the Pepsi Center, men have fewer toilets and urinals than women, but they take half as much time to go, so women will still have longer to wait. My recommendation for delegates sandwiched in the convention hall who don’t want to miss any of Bill Clinton’s speech tonight? Depends.
