Does Hillary Clinton Really Want To Run Against Barack Obama Again?

Clinton versus Obama, so six years ago right?


The two one-time political rivals are being compared to each other again as Hillary Clinton likely embarks on yet another presidential run.

Since their tumultuous campaign rivalry the two have become friendly.

In one of his first big cabinet moves President Obama called on Clinton to be his secretary of state.

But in order to win this time Hillary Clinton is probably going to have to distance herself from her former rival and former boss, the President.

A new CNN/ORC poll show President Obama’s approval ratings well below 50 percent on all major issues from terrorism to immigration to helping the middle class to health care policy to the economy- all below 50 percent.

His lowest approval, handling the federal budget deficit, is just 31 percent.

However, Hillary Clinton’s approval ratings are above 50 percent on all major issues like foreign…

All the hype about Scandal

Over the past few weeks, I have been hearing and reading so much about this so called, Scandal. Every social network has been flooded with tweets and posts. So what did I do, tuned in. This week may be my third episode and I must say that it has been interesting. Now, I can’t exactly say if the hoopla is about the acting, cast or just the story line overall, but I can guess it has to do with a little all of the above. The cast and plot are remarkable. I was sold with the first episode. There are a few issues that I have with a couple of the characters and I will start with the leading lady, Ms. Oivia Pope (Kerry Washington) – strong character, fashionable, energetic, and very voiceful. The only problem I have with her character is I find that she is very fast talking and sometimes overact her parts at times, a bit too dramatic. Then there’s, Harrison Wright(Columbus Short) – I am happy to see him cast in a serious role, always admired him as an actor but the only thing that bothers me is his raspy whispering tone. I find myself having to struggle to hear and understand what he is saying. However, I am proud of Judy Smith, Shonda Rhimes for entertaining us with a suspenseful, power driven drama, thank you ladies. Also, I commend Kerry Washington for her leading role.

Paul Ryan’s Daughter Dresses As Obama Supporter Katy Perry For Halloween

Last night, Paul Ryan traded the campaign trail for a trick-or-treat route, celebrating Halloween with his three children, wife, sister-in-law, niece and invited members of the press in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin. It was a routine affair with just one exception – his daughter’s costume. Ten-year-old Liza dressed as Katy Perry, who recently performed at an Obama campaign event.

Along with Beyonce and Jay-Z, Perry is among the few pop stars taking action for Obama’s re-election, with additional support from rock icons like Bruce Springsteen. She engaged youth voters with a performance at an Obama rally in Las Vegas on October 24, where she encouraged the barely-legal members of the massive crowd to vote for the first time. On October 7th, Perry performed at an Obama fundraiser in Los Angeles, and this Saturday (Nov. 3), she’ll appear with the president at a rally in Milwaukee. “I sang for…
