Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign said Wednesday it has raised $45 million since its launch in mid-April, with the vast majority of its donors having given less than $100. John Podesta, Clinton's campaign chairman, said on Twitter that 91 percent of all of Clinton's donations were for $100 or less. But while Clinton's aides touted their success with such small-dollar donors, the leading Democrat in the 2016 race also pulled in a large chunk of campaign cash from donors who are giving her the maximum allowed by law. read more

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders drew 10,000 supporters, the largest crowd of his campaign thus far, at an event in Wisconsin. Sanders used the occasion to slam Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a likely Republican White House hopeful, for Walker's battles against state labor unions. "When you deny the right of workers to come together in collective bargaining, that's extremism," he said. "When you tell a woman that she cannot control her own body, that's extremism." read more


You might say that's one way to stimulate economic growth. A piñata maker in Reynosa, Mexico, has created a new viral star in the form of a papier-mache creation that looks just a little bit like a certain businessman-turned-
presidential candidate. Dalton Avalos Ramirez made the Donald Trump piñata "because of the hatred Trump expressed for the Mexican people." He noted that, in their own way, the Trump piñatas had proven popular. "People want to burn the piñatas. They want to break them," he said.

You'd think he'd be smarter than that.... OK, nevermind.

"Let's mention high up what is the main point here. This "investigation" now constitutes openly and defiantly urinating on the grave of Amb. Stevens. Many diplomats and friends of Stevens's are aghast at this.

"It's a desecration of Chris's memory," says his old friend Daniel Seidemann, the American-born and Jerusalem-based peace activist who got to know Stevens during the latter's time in Israel.

"That this should be the ‘reward' for the finest American public servant I ever met is a sad commentary on the decay of political culture in the United States. Shameless."

Robert Ford, the courageous former ambassador to Syria, told me:

"Chris Stevens cared deeply about the people of the Middle East and North Africa, and about helping them build better futures for themselves and their families and about building better relations between them and the United States. Those goals weren't Republican or Democratic.

Using his tragic death, and the deaths of his dedicated colleagues, for partisan, tear-down political gain minimizes the importance of their deaths and the issues with which they were grappling. It's really an insult to demean them this way."

"The committee's motivation has always been obvious, but it became undeniably so on Monday, when Politico ran a piece headlined "Beyond Benghazi."

The gist of it was that committee chairman Trey Gowdy has now expanded the scope of the probe to include "the administration's entire policy toward Libya, not just the brief period before and after the Benghazi attacks of September 11, 2012."

"In other words -- Gowdy's investigators have come up empty on the consular attack itself, but their assignment, undoubtedly never spoken but equally undoubtedly always understood, is to find something that will keep Clinton out of the White House. And so the net will now be cast far more widely."

In uphill 2016 bid, Jim Webb brings conservative bent to Democratic field

www.washingtonpost.com

He's come along way from being Reagan's Naval Sec. Good review of Webb's politics, including this:

"Webb pushed unsuccessfully for congressional authorization of continued military action in Libya. His successor, Democrat Timothy M. Kaine, has taken up that cause in the battle against the Islamic State. The administration is currently negotiating with lawmakers over a new authorization of use of force. Years after his bipartisan commission to review the nation's sprawling criminal justice system was blocked by Republicans, conservatives have embraced a sentencing overhaul.

Both Kaine and Mark R. Warner, Virginia's other senator, have endorsed Clinton."

HRC needed someone to the right of her on the stage.
