Hillary Clinton ‘Most Electable,’ Survey Shows

Adweek Magazine ordered up an online survey on presidential candidates the way an advertiser might launch a survey on brand-name products, and found that Hillary Clinton is considered the "most electable” choice for 2008.

That’s the good news for Clinton. Now the bad news for her: The survey also found that she’s the "least electable.”

Despite the "love-hate” relationship Americans feel toward the former first lady, she still packs a powerful brand, as the Ad Week survey discovered.

Clinton pushing 'clean' power plants

Sen. Hillary Clinton unveiled details of the Strategic Energy Fund legislation she will introduce to expand incentives and build clean coal power plants such as the NRG Energy Inc. Huntley facility in Tonawanda.

Clinton, D-NY, said the new plant represents a future that is more environmentally-friendly, cleaner and more dependent on energy, and the time is now for the federal government to be involved in the process.

Hillary Clinton Seeks Aid for Minority Students

Clinton Criticizes Bush Education Policy, Urges Parents of Minority Children to Get Involved

The Associated Press

MIAMI - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton on Tuesday criticized President Bush's education policy as doing little to help minorities and acknowledged that she is still searching for ways to raise minority student test scores.

More needs to be done to prepare children for school and to get parents involved in their education, Clinton said while visiting a historic black neighborhood during her first campaign trip to Florida since announcing her candidacy. She said Bush's No Child Left Behind Act isn't providing a solution for raising test scores.

"This achievement gap is deeply troubling to me," Clinton said. "If we don't invest in our children, our society and our economy will decline. This is not just something nice to do, this is something that we have to do."

Clinton, Giuliani holding lead in South, Elon poll results say

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and former New York May-or Rudy Giuliani hold an edge among prospective candidates for the White House in five southeastern states, where most voters remain undecided, according to a poll released yesterday by Elon University.

Thirty percent of those polled who said they would vote Democratic supported Clinton, 14 percent backed Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, and 8 percent supported former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards. But 24 percent said it was too early to decide and 22 percent didn't know who they would support.

Hillary Clinton woos technology leaders in San Francisco

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Hillary Clinton took her turn Friday in the Bay Area’s continuing march of presidential candidates, pitching to two key groups she’s depending on for support: Progressive women and Democratic technology leaders.

Surrounded in San Francisco by an enthusiastic crowd of 1,000, mostly women who paid $250 or more for a boxed lunch, Clinton declared she is “not running as a woman candidate. I’m running because I think I’m the best person to hit the ground running.”

Never mind the theme of the lunch was “Making History.”

“From my perspective, as a woman executive who has run a couple of companies, I’d be thrilled to have Hillary as the first woman president,” said Lorraine Hariton, a technology executive who helped organize Clinton events on Friday.

“She is her own person and is very interested understanding what’s on the mind of people and Silicon Valley is a key area.”

Arriving later in the afternoon at Google, Clinton met with technology executives from several companies who had been invited by the technology giant to discuss policy issues. She then met with Google employees.

Thank You

by Hillary Clinton
2/23/2007 10:36 AM
It's now just over a month that I have been in to win.

It's been exciting and challenging and fun all at the same time. The people I have met have been terrific. 

And we decided day one that this campaign would live as much on the web as in the living rooms - and the opening of the blog is just another in the many web firsts in this campaign, following the unprecedented announcement and three straight nights of live video chats.

I believe that the web is not only creating new forms of political dialogue but offering a new wave of opportunity for all Americans - and one of my highest priorities will be to make us number one again in the world in broadband. If we are not at the forefront of the web as a nation, we simply will not be able to keep up our role as the world's leading innovator. Net Neutrality is something that I am also fighting for now in the Senate so that the web remains open and democratic.

I appreciate the hundreds of thousands of you who are participating on this site in one form or another.  This is truly the dialogue decade, and through the miracle of technology I can talk WITH you, not just at you. I will be holding more web chats soon, and I have started a "HillCast," a regular web broadcast that will be about some of the most important issues I am tackling. The first one was on my plan to end the war in Iraq and the next one will be on the energy crisis we are facing. I believe campaigns are about ideas - and how together we turn those ideas into action.

I have been reading through the comments you all have been making - many of them encouraging,  some critical and some with great suggestions - all of them are appreciated. We have gotten off to an exceptional start, and in the coming months I look forward to talking with you more about my specific plans to restore what I call the promise of America, and I will look forward to your comments. Hopefully I will also see you out there on the campaign trail.

February 21, 2007 -- MIAMI - Hillary Rodham Clinton vowed yesterday to change the United States so it's no longer an "arrogant power" that alienates the world.

"When I'm president, I'm going to send a message to the world that America is back - we're not the arrogant power that we've been acting like for the last six years," Sen. Clinton said during her first campaign stop in the Sunshine State.

"We want to be an admired country again in the world. There is a lot of work to be done," Clinton said to applause from a predominantly black audience gathered for her town-hall-style chat in the Liberty City section of Miami.

Message from Bill Clinton "One Week, One Million"

Dear Friend,

Am I enthusiastic about my wife's campaign for president? You bet I am. I know her better than anybody on earth, and she's got the best combination of mind and heart of everybody I've ever known.

All across the country, Hillary is campaigning with the signature wisdom, grace, and humor that make her a great candidate. I know that if we all work hard enough, those same traits will make her an even better president.

You and I know something about waging and winning presidential campaigns.

Winning the White House takes persistence, energy and effort -- not just from the candidate, but from a massive network of grassroots supporters.

Hillary's campaign is off to a great start. And this week, we're going to help take it to another level. Our goal: to demonstrate the range and breadth of Hillary's support by raising one million dollars in grassroots donations in a week's time.

Will you help me get our "One Week, One Million" campaign off to a powerful start?

Click to donate:

Look, with Republicans using everything in their arsenal to stop her campaign, Hillary is going to need every one of us to do everything that we can for her.

During eight years in the White House, Hillary and I faced a constant barrage of attacks from Washington Republicans. No insult was off-limits. No tactic was too low. They threw everything they could at us -- but we beat them time and time again.

The attacks on Hillary haven't stopped, and she hasn't stopped winning. You know how they say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger? Well, Hillary is as strong as they come.

Let's make this a week when we demonstrate that her campaign is strong, too. Strong enough to sustain Hillary's run for the presidency through thick and thin. Strong enough to win.

Click to donate:

I can't wait to join Hillary on the campaign trail and talk to people about what a great president she's going to be. She is a tireless fighter and a brilliant born leader, and I have no doubt the American people will make her our first woman president.

Over the next week, you'll hear from some other friends and admirers of Hillary. I hope you'll join them in making our One Week, One Million campaign a success. But, most importantly, I hope you'll act right now to get this dramatic display of grassroots support off the ground with a big outpouring for Hillary on the first day.

Thank you so much for your support. Hillary and I couldn't do it without you.

“Can a woman be president?” Clinton asked the crowd, which responded with a roar. “One of the great things about America is anyone can be president. What it depends upon is the individual. “

Hillary Clinton urges troop withdrawal to begin in 90 days

US Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, the early front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, has called for a 90-day deadline to start pulling American troops from Iraq.

Senator Clinton, the wife of former president Bill Clinton, has been criticised by some Democrats for supporting the war in 2002 and for not renouncing her vote.

"Now it's time to say the redeployment should start in 90 days or the Congress will revoke authorisation for this war," the New York Senator said in a video on her campaign website.

She was repeating a point included in a bill she introduced on Friday.

Up close and personal with Hillary

MANCHESTER – Sen. Hillary Clinton breezed through the second day of her Presidential campaign's inaugural tour through New Hampshire yesterday with dual stops at Democratic "house parties" in the southern tier.

In Manchester and Nashua, the New York Democrat and former first lady took her first crack at the living-room politics that typically defines the New Hampshire Primary. One day after launching her New Hampshire campaign with highly scrutinized speeches in Berlin and Concord, Clinton spoke comfortably with small crowds of would-be voters and took questions at random, mostly from Democrats who haven't yet committed themselves to any one candidate.

For Clinton, celebrity status is a given

Justin Timberlake blared in the background as Sen. Hillary Clinton strode into the kitchen of Pappy's Pizza in Manchester yesterday, ready for a bit of early-morning retail politics.

For nearly an hour, Clinton signed pizza boxes, menus and bits of stationery. She gamely spoke into cell phones thrust upon her by customers. (Their relatives were on the other end.) She inquired about the ins and outs of pizza making. And she talked to diners about their grandkids and the war in Iraq, patiently listening to each before moving on to the next table.

"I'm so proud of you as a woman," Niki Miller of Manchester told Clinton at the end of a lengthy discussion about the nation's mental health services.

Hillary helping College Students

February 7, 2007 -- Washington, DC - Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton today reintroduced the Student Borrower Bill of Rights, a bill that gives rights to student borrowers trying to repay their loans. The bill provides student borrowers with basic rights to ensure that loan payments are affordable, to allow students to shop for loans in a free marketplace and to give students timely information about their loans.

"There are too many students in New York State and across the country that are overly burdened with loan payments or treated unfairly as they repay student loans. This bill makes it easier for students to repay their loans by putting in place a basic set of rights, including the right to borrow without exploitation and the right to real loan choices," said Senator Clinton.

GOP Views Clinton As Virtually Unbeatable

What many conservatives regard as the nightmare scenario -- President Hillary Rodham Clinton -- is increasingly seen by veteran Republican politicians and strategists as a virtual inevitability.

In GOP circles, the Democratic front-runner is seen as so strong, and the political climate for Republicans so hostile, that many influential voices -- including current and former lawmakers, and veterans of President Bush's campaigns -- have grown despairing. These partisans describe a political equivalent of the stages of grief, starting with denial, then resentment and ending with acceptance.

Hillary Wins Support From Businesses, Ex-Foes, Aiding 2008 Bid

Feb. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Buried in the campaign filings for
Hillary Clinton's 2006 re-election were $3,000 in donations from America's Health Insurance Plans, a trade group.

That may seem like no big deal for the New York senator, who raised $51 million as she coasted to victory in November. What's surprising is that America's Health Insurance Plans is the same group that vilified Clinton in 1993 with the ``Harry and Louise'' commercials -- an advertising blitz that helped doom her plan to guarantee health-insurance coverage for all Americans.

Why the change of heart? Clinton worked with Republicans to back one of the Washington-based organization's priorities: setting up electronic networks to help doctors share patient information. ``We made the decision to invest the resources because of that leadership,'' says Karen Ignagni, president of the group.

Michigan Supports Hillary

Michigan Democrats want a Clinton back in the White House -- by an overwhelming margin. But independent voters have lingering doubts about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, raising questions about whether she can continue her party's streak of winning Michigan's presidential delegates.

Almost a year before the state's parties hold primaries or caucuses, Clinton is the clear choice of Michigan Democrats with a nearly 30-point lead over her nearest rival, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, a Detroit Free Press-Local 4 Michigan Poll conducted last week shows. The New York senator and former first lady got strong support crossing racial lines, income levels, geographical boundaries and age.

And in head-to-head matchups, she led those who polled best among the Republicans: former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Arizona Sen. John McCain, tracking national polls that show the Democrats taking an early lead and reversing trends from some polls last year.
