Mark Clinton's relatives turned out in Delaware County Court yesterday to tell the judge that the incident that took Clinton's life in November was more than an accident. Richard D. Hopkins, 24, of Collingdale, was driving on MacDade Boulevard in Glenolden early Nov. 15 when he struck and killed Clinton, 35, of Philadelphia, who was biking home from work. After hitting Clinton, Hopkins kept driving. He turned himself in to Glenolden police the next day. Hopkins pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in May. Yesterday, Judge Harry J. Bradley sentenced him to six to 23 months in prison and ordered him to perform 3,000 hours of community service.

WASHINGTON - Dorothy Howell Rodham, 92, mother of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and former President Bill Clinton's mother-in-law, died Tuesday after an illness. The family said Mrs. Rodham died, surrounded by her family, at a Washington hospital. Hillary Clinton had canceled a planned trip to London and Istanbul to be at her mother's side. In a statement, the Clinton family hailed Mrs. Rodham as a woman who "overcame abandonment and hardship as a young girl to become the remarkable woman she was - a warm, generous and strong woman; an intellectual; a woman who told a great joke and always got the joke; an extraordinary friend and, most of all, a loving wife, mother and grandmother.

As the big day approaches for Chelsea Clinton and fiance Marc Mezvinsky, we can only wonder what's going through wedding planner Bryan Rafanelli's mind. To shed some insight, the Daily News spoke with local wedding and event planners to find out how they would coordinate such an affair. Christina Hill, of cHill Weddings LLC, in Germantown, said that she would encourage a historic and classic theme using earth tones, while Charita Hall, executive director of A Platinum Affair LLC, suggests patriotic decor.

Mike Taibbi refers to "flabby arms" in his latest Hillary obit. Who cares? I want to ask. But apparently Mr. Taibbi does. (And how would he know? Hillary is always encased in a blazer.) . . . Look at a room of middle-aged male politicians - paunches and liver spots abound. Pathetic comb-overs that turn to greasy streamers in a high wind. Skin cancers turning to melanomas, flat feet, bursitic elbows and shoulders - who cares? Ronald Reagan got elected with a wandering mind. And that does impact performance.

Former Philadelphia City Controller Jonathan Saidel dropped out Tuesday from the Democratic primary in the 13th Congressional District, citing the party heavyweights backing former U.S. Rep. Marjorie Margolies. One of them apparently is a certain former president known as Bubba. Bill Clinton owes Margolies big-time - and besides, she is daughter Chelsea's mother-in-law. Saidel's sudden move was the biggest domino to fall thus far in the race to replace U.S. Rep. Allyson Y. Schwartz, who is running for governor in 2014.

Marjorie Margolies says she's the same centrist Democrat who lost her seat representing Pennsylvania's 13th District in the House two decades ago over one crucial and controversial vote. The district, however, is not the same. As Margolies begins her attempted political comeback, the 13th has morphed from a swing district entirely within Montgomery County into a Democratic lock that reaches into Northeast Philadelphia. "It will be a different kind of race," Margolies said Thursday, the day she filed a declaration of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission.

Unindicted co-conspirator. That ominous label is about to be stuck on one of Bill Clinton's closest confidants: White House deputy counsel Bruce Lindsey. With the President's support, Mr. Lindsey denies any wrongdoing, and says "there is no reason or purpose for me to resign. " It may well be that he has done absolutely nothing wrong. But even if deep down he knows that to be true, his job status is a separate issue. Public confidence in the integrity of the Clinton White House is inevitably wounded by Mr. Lindsey's being named as a "co-conspirator" in a bank-fraud case that involves the alleged concealment of large withdrawals from Mr. Clinton's gubernatorial campaign accounts in 1990.

WASHINGTON HELMS CLAIMS DEMS FEAR LESBIAN ISSUE Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C., predicted yesterday that Senate confirmation of San Francisco Supervisor Roberta Achtenberg, a lesbian, as an assistant secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development will "take a while" because, he said, the Democrats are afraid of the issue. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., disputed Helms' contention that Senate Democrats are afraid to bring the Achtenberg confirmation to a floor vote.

FORMER City Controller Jonathan Saidel on Tuesday dropped his bid to replace U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz, citing the interest in the race from Marjorie Margolies, who once held the seat. Saidel, in a statement, made clear that Democrats are starting to line up behind Margolies, including former President Bill Clinton, a fundraising powerhouse. Margolies' son is married to Clinton's daughter. "Over the past few days, I have had conversations with Marjorie Margolies and national Democratic leaders," Saidel said.

LAST WEEK, President Obama officially announced his bid for re-election. For all practical purposes, this was the most unnecessary announcement in recent political history. Not just because the president's intentions to run again were never in doubt, but because there's no chance that anyone can beat him regardless of what he does. To be clear, I'm not happy about this. As a hard-core leftist, I've been deeply troubled by the president's failure to challenge big business, defend unions, stop unjust (and unconstitutional)

I owe my husband 50 bucks. I'd said the dog wouldn't make it to 2002. I guess I underestimated the ex-president's caretaking skills. Buddy, ostensibly beloved dog of the Clinton family, was accidentally struck Wednesday afternoon when he darted out in front of a car on a busy two-lane road at the end of the cul-de-sac where the Clinton house stands in Chappaqua, N.Y. What happened to Buddy is precisely what can be expected to happen to...
