London mayor makes up with Hillary
I didn't know about this controversy but apparently it was a thing.
The mayor of London had some apologising to do when he met Hillary Clinton at her office in Manhattan on Wednesday.
Boris Johnson, who is almost as well-known in the UK for his loose lips as his messy blonde hair, conceded that it was amazing that Clinton had agreed to meet him after he had previously compared her to “a sadistic nurse in a mental hospital”.
His comments in a 2007 article for the Daily Telegraph have overshadowed his six-day trip to Boston, New York and Washington...
If you're wondering what Hillary is up to at the moment, this video is an interesting snapshot.
Mostly, I just love this photo.
We finally know where the big party is gonna be.
In a pick that melds political calculations and historical resonance, the Democratic Party on Thursday announced that it had selected Philadelphia as the site of its 2016 national convention.
One of three finalists to host the convention, Philadelphia edged Brooklyn, N.Y., and Columbus, Ohio, for the honor. In a statement, party officials pointed to the city’s status as a cradle of American democracy as well as the logistical infrastructure to pull off a massive event in which thousands converge to celebrate the official nomination of the party’s presidential candidate.
“In addition to their commitment to a seamless and safe convention, Philadelphia’s deep rooted place in American history provides a perfect setting for this special gathering,” said Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz of Florida, the chair of the Democratic National Committee. A contract with the city to host the event was signed Thursday morning.This is a great choice...and Hillary HQ will be right there when history is made!
More evidence that New Hampshire is Clinton country
Continuing the theme from the previous post, here's another great poll:
Simply horrible numbers for Jeb Bush and Scott Walker in an important "swing state". Only Rand Paul gets noticeably closer, thanks to the state's well-known independent streak.
It's still not good enough to beat Hillary on Election Day...but good for him.
