Hillary Clinton Speaks To Thousands of Iowan Supporters, Hints About Presidential Bid: VIDEO

Clinton

Hillary and Bill Clinton made a public appearance at the 37th annual Harkin Steak Fry in Indianola, Iowa this past weekend. Despite being a tribute to retiring Democratic Senator Tom Harkin, the more than 5,000 attendees treated the event more like a presidential rally, sporting “Ready for Hillary” paraphernalia.

Both of the Clintons encouraged the crowd, composed of Iowans and out-of-towners from Kansas and Kentucky, to remain active and engage in the Democratic party’s Senate and congressional campaigns.

“Hello, Iowa, I’m back," Clinton intoned to the cheering crowd. “Let's not let another 7 years go by."

Clinton last spoke in Iowa after placing third in the 2008 Iowa caucuses behind Barack Obama and John Edwards. Despite not explicitly making any mention of her plans on running in 2016, Clinton took time to talk to her supporters about “that other thing.”

“Too many people only get excited about presidential campaigns,” she expressed. “It’s true, I’m thinking about it. But for today, that’s not why I’m here.”

Despite her insistence on keeping the gathering focused on Senator Harkin, Harkin himself made a point of highlighting Clinton’s career and assuring the crowd that there were “many more chapters to be written in the amazing life of Hillary Clinton.”

Jenny McCarthy Apologizes For Calling Hillary Clinton A Lesbian: VIDEO

Jenny mccarthy

Jenny McCarthy has apologized for suggesting on The View that Hillary Clinton might be a lesbian, reports Huffington Post.

As McCarthy and her co-hosts discussed Ronald Kessler's new book, The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents, she suggested Hillary Clinton might be a lesbian and said the Clintons could have some sort of marital "arrangement."

However, in a later blog post, McCarthy claimed she uses jokes while on The View because she is out of her comfort zone:

“[Following the Clinton segment], we talked about a female CEO not helping other women in her workplace and my spiritual side felt excited to get out my personal mission statement about “girl code.” I stated that we women need to look out for one another. That we need to stop ripping on each other and empower one another. This is something that is very important to me and I hold so close to my heart.

"That night, as I lay in bed and reflected on my day, I realized I was a hypocrite. How could I make a joke like that and then five minutes later preach about female empowerment? It makes me sad when I see women ripping on other women, and there I was making a joke about our possible first female president!

"I hope you will be patient with me as I continue to figure myself out and grow to be the example of female empowerment I always intend to be."

Hillary Clinton sat down with Charlie Rose today and offered her thoughts on the Malaysia Airlines flight that was shot down over Ukraine today, Mediaite reports:

She noted that the Ukrainian government has been quick to blame the crash on “terrorists,” which is “their name for the Russian insurgents.” Clinton agreed that it “probably had to be” Russian insurgents that brought the plane down, but would need forensic evidence to determine that for sure.

“If there is evidence pointing in that direction, the equipment had to come from Russia,” Clinton continued. “There is a great deal of concern that, not only was a civilian plane shot down, but what this means about the continuing conflict in Eastern Ukraine and the role that Russia is playing.”
