Joseph Cotto: Remember the ‘B’ word
Things are looking up for Hillary Clinton. Her daughter, Chelsea, recently went through a high-profile pregnancy and gave birth to a celebration fit for major royalty. Bill has long-since reinvented himself as a human rights crusader and political science guru. The days of Monica...

Donna Brazile: Clinton makes it official
Hillary Clinton’s announcement was as inevitable as the coming of springtime — and with the way the weather has been, the coming of springtime seemed a lot iffier for a while. But now it’s official: Hillary Clinton is running for president of the United States. Now that she’s...

Donna Brazile: Can Hillary survive this new ‘scandal?’
Former U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton confronted the controversy that’s enveloped Washington, D.C., over the private email account she used exclusively when secretary of state. Like all issues that capture the attention of our partisan-obsessed Congress, this one has been politicized....

Byron York: President Hillary Clinton would be secretive, too
News that Hillary Clinton exclusively used a private email account to keep secret her communications as Secretary of State should surprise no one. She came to Washington more than 20 years ago determined to keep secrets, and she’s still at it. In 1993, the newly inaugurated President...

Bob Franken: Healthcare politics — not so fastHillary running for president: Yes or no?
I’m sure you, too, have been caught up in breathless speculation over whether Hillary Clinton will do the deed and actually run for president. That’s all we’re talking about here in D.C., and of course, Washington is so typical of Anytown, USA. A lot of people are rooting for...

Rick Jensen: Poor, poor Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton’s term as Secretary of State was a disaster, from presenting the Russian’s with a culturally insular “reset” button ignorantly emblazoned with the Russian word for “overcharge,” to failing to respond to the desperate requests for available backup from Ambassador...

Michael Reagan: Dear Hillary: Run
Hillary, you go girl. Run as hard as you can for president. Play hardball to get your party’s nomination. Do whatever dirty party tricks it takes to knock off what’s-her-name up in Massachusetts, or what’s-his-name out in Montana. Compared to you, they’re a pair of minor...

Tina Dupuy: The six degrees of Hillary Clinton game
Here’s how to play: Find a horrible tragedy anywhere in the world and in six degrees or fewer—blame Hillary Clinton. Several hundred Nigerian schoolgirls are kidnapped by the terrorist cult, Boko Haram. The media pays absolutely no attention to it. Weeks later after a social...

Diana West: Did the U.S. choose war in Libya over Qaddafi’s abdication?
More than Benghazi skeletons should haunt Hillary Clinton’s expected 2016 presidential bid. It now seems that the entire war in Libya — where thousands died in a civil war in which no U.S. interest was at stake — might well have been averted on her watch and, of course, that...

Byron York: Why Hillary’s past is fair game in the presidential race
There’s a debate going on about Hillary Clinton’s past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as first lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as secretary of state, to build a case against...

It's time to address the burning question singeing the lips of every American this summer: What will happen to Bryan Cranston's pork pie hat after "Breaking Bad" ends its run? Okay, maybe that's No. 2. The big one is who's going to be the Democratic presidential candidate...
