NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. -- Hillary Clinton is not the only member of the Clinton family who is generating a good deal of buzz these days. The former first daughter, Chelsea, has been increasingly talked about in New York political circles. As Chelsea Clinton steps out more and more, speculation that she may be laying the groundwork for a possible run for office has ramped up.(snip)Despite Clinton´s growing role in the public eye, she still shies away from unscripted moments with the media. An aide to Clinton said she would not do any interviews after the event.

Comments:
Oh please, she a clueless, stage managed vapid phony just like her old lady and is packing on the pounds like Madam Rodham as well.
Major Barf Alert.

This is a Time Warner Cable site that requires subscription to view video.

That said, the article is pretty much what we have seen elsewhere in recent days. Chelsea trying to gin up excitement over her "political future".

She would be a re-do of Carolyn Kennedy.

Can´t we please get rid of all these families, Democrat and Republican, who think they are entitled to a role in politics because their family member was once elected to office. I´m sick of them all.

Oh, Miss Clinton, may I know your qualifications for running for office? At age 32, what are your accomplishments? You must have quite a resume. May I see it?

But why is it that you won´t do interviews? Could it be that you and Caroline Kennedy have something in common beside the obvious, having a famous last name to trade on? That would be that, uh, you know, uh, you´re both inarticulate twits.

"So often, our most vulnerable, our children, are not thought about in a coherent way," Clinton said. "Not only here in New York City, but in our national dialogue. And that was something I felt particularly, in full candor, over the summer, in our election season."

Really, Chels?
You spent the whole summer, a-pining away over the poor chillun?..."in full candor," even?

Oh, I am most impressed. ´Tis a glorious thing to be so ... so ... caaaring.

Chelsea´s mom´s old mentor, the grimly righteous Marion Wright Edelman, must be revving the old "Childrens Defense Fund" political vehicle to help launch Chelsea´s career.

Iran has signed a deal to sell Iraq arms and ammunition worth £117 million in a move that would break a UN embargo on weapons sales by Tehran. The agreement was reached at the end of November, documents showed, just weeks after Iraq’s prime minister Nouri al-Maliki returned from Washington, where he lobbied the Obama administration for extra weapons to fight al-Qaeda-linked militants. (Snip) “We are launching a war against terrorism and we want to win this war. Nothing prevents us from buying arms and ammunition from any party and it’s only ammunition helping us to fight terrorists,” said the spokesman,

WASHINGTON — A new study reveals that nearly 33,000 jobs have been impacted due to the Affordable Care Act’s medical device excise tax. The report comes from the Advanced Medical Technology Association following an online survey of member companies last year. “According to the report, the tax has led to employment reductions of approximately 14,000 industry workers and foregone hiring of 19,000 workers,” the study stated. “The total job impact of the tax on industry employment was approximately 33,000.” Stephen J.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A former and possibly future first daughter came to Kansas City on Monday to launch an effort to honor women. Chelsea Clinton spoke to an enthusiastic crowd at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, sharing her passion for efforts that help boost women and girls. "How far have women come, and how far do we have to go?" she said. She told the audience that those questions are less philosophical than practical. She said she buries herself in the world of the Clinton Foundation to make sure she's doing her part. Another reason she was in Kansas City is to help establish the Starr Women's Hall of Fame,

Global Warming ‘Hiatus’ Caused By
Volcanoes’ ‘Cooling Effect,’ Study Says
Eruptions Slow Global Temperature Rise

Since 1998, the average rate of Earth’s rising global surface temperature has relaxed, much to the chagrin of climate scientists whose climate-model predictions told a different story. Now, researchers say they’ve found the cause of Earth’s global warming “hiatus.” According to a new study, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, volcanoes are the reason the average rate of warming dropped from .31 degrees Fahrenheit per decade between 1970 and 1998 to .072 degrees Fahrenheit per decade between 1998 and 2012. This “muted surface warming” was the result of a series of 17 small volcanic eruptions, beginning in 2000, that spewed

We´ve paid plenty of attention here at KCET to the problems caused for desert tortoises when their habitat is replaced with renewable energy facilities. But now one scientist is saying that big solar facilities in the Mojave could seal the desert tortoise´s fate in a way you might not expect.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s recently released climate data shows that U.S. winters have cooled over the past 20 years at a rate of minus 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit per century. Data from Rutgers University shows that the Northern Hemisphere has been seeing more snowfall in recent decades — at a rate of over 100,000 square kilometers per year.

The “greatest buried treasure ever unearthed in the United States” is about to be hit by the tax collector. According to Kathleen Pender, a columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle, the couple who found in cans buried on their property more than 1,400 rare gold coins worth more than $10 million will probably owe close to half of that sum in federal and state income tax, whether or not they sell the coins.

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

President Barack Obama fired a few verbs across the front armor of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s tanks, in a rushed statement just after 5 p.m. on Friday. The statement was made as Russian forces — including attack helicopters — appeared in peripheral parts of the Ukraine that are largely populated by ethnic Russians. There’s no evidence that Obama wants to get involved in what may become a war between the Ukraine and Russia. He did not threaten any significant retaliation if Russian force attack nor did he offer military aid to the Ukraine. He announced that Vice President Joe Biden — but not

The question isn’t why Arthur Chu brought his peculiar, buzzer-smacking brand of game play to “Jeopardy.” The question is why, in 50 long years of the show’s history, more people haven’t done the same. Chu, if you haven’t heard of him, is the “Jeopardy” contestant nonchalantly bulldozing America’s collective nostalgic vision for how game shows should work, who cruised to his eighth straight victory on Thursday night. The insurance compliance technician from Ohio who is also a “stand-up comedian, Shakespearean actor, improviser, tour guide, genius and, most importantly, voiceover artist,” according to his Web site — has used his renegade style

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., has told Fox News that Morell, a former deputy director and twice acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will likely be recalled to testify. The recall comes after new charges surfaced that Morell misled Congress about what he knew regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack and when he knew it.

SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine — Heightened Russian military activity in Crimea on Friday prompted a stern warning from President Obama and a deepening sense of crisis among the leaders of the new Ukrainian government in Kiev. U.S. officials said Russian troops had entered Crimea, and Obama told reporters Friday evening that he was “deeply concerned by reports of military movements” and that there “will be costs for any military intervention.” Earlier in the day, the new Ukrainian government said that hundreds of soldiers in green camouflage, without insignia but carrying military-style automatic rifles, had taken over two airports in Crimea.
