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.

Challenging South American custom, Hillary Rodham Clinton told Argentina's leading women yesterday that they should push for reproductive rights as a means to equality. Her reference to abortion was fleeting, but its mere mention was exceptional in a country where 92 percent of the population is Catholic and most abortions are illegal. In a provocative speech on women's rights from the stage of South America's most heralded opera house, she called family planning a crucial ingredient needed to end discrimination and give women fair footing in society.

Responding to charges that her law practice has benefited directly from her husband's position as governor of Arkansas, Hillary Rodham Clinton said yesterday, "I've done the best I can to lead my life. "I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas. " She told reporters that she has studiously avoided any conflict of interest between her law firm and its business with the State of Arkansas. "I have never, ever shared in a penny of state funds," she said.

What you don't know about Hillary Clinton is a lot. She'd tell you herself: "I am a very well-known unknown person. " Biographers and journalists have spent years studying the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, coming away with partial portraits at best. That's because Clinton is a mass of contradictions. Analysts say she is: graspingly ambitious, brilliant, thin-skinned, a do-gooder, deceptive, caring, inauthentic, shockingly unself-aware, entitled, bighearted, vindictive, funny, mean, foulmouthed, and dedicated to God. People project onto Clinton whom they think she is based on their own prejudice - a human Rorschach test, observers have said.

A South Jersey prison inmate has been charged with threatening to kill U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. Federal authorities said the man had a violent past and figured an assassination would bring him fame. Edward A. Falvey, 51, was charged on Monday in U.S. District Court with threatening to kill an immediate family member of a former president, a federal crime. Authorities did not publicize the arrest, and Clinton is identified in court papers only as "H.R.C. " Falvey, a New York bank robber serving a 30-month term at the federal prison in Fairton, Cumberland County, was scheduled for release in June.

A poised and confident-looking Hillary Rodham Clinton came here yesterday to deliver her first speech since President Clinton's admission of an "inappropriate" relationship with intern Monica Lewinsky. She talked about peace, she talked about women's role in democracy, and she talked about women who put their families first. She did not say a word about the Lewinsky sex scandal. But her reference three times to the President as "my husband" left little doubt that Hillary Clinton was standing by her man. Sleek in a dark navy knit pantsuit, she smiled later when asked how she was feeling.

DENNIS RODMAN landed in China on Saturday after a 4-day visit with his buddy Kim Jong Un, the nutty dictator of North Korea. It was the second time the ex-NBA player had visited with Kim. This time, he and Kim spent time swilling Rodman's newly launched "Bad Boy Vodka. " Just what the world needs, two worms boozing it up in a country that has nuclear weapons. We're lucky we're all still here. Before the trip, there was some chatter about Rodman asking Kim to release Christian missionary Kenneth Bae, a U.S. citizen who is serving a 15-year jail sentence in North Korea for allegedly plotting against the government.

In a departure from the diplomatic, coddling language that visiting U.S. officials and businessmen typically use when speaking on Chinese soil, Hillary Rodham Clinton lashed out yesterday at China for curtailing the freedom of the participants in the U.N. Fourth World Conference on Women and a related conference. In a speech that listed numerous human rights violations against women around the world, including forced abortions and female infanticide in China, Clinton referred to China's conduct of the conference as yet another example of women being denied their rights.

In a wide-ranging speech that jumped from the protests in North Carolina over the shootings of black men by police to the need for health-care reform and plans to build a wall separating the United States from Mexico, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump delivered a remarkably on-message speech Thursday night to a crowd of thousands in Delaware County. For the second time in less than 10 days, Trump addressed a Delaware County audience, this time in Chester Township, touting a broad platform that included repairing inner-city communities and bringing manufacturing jobs back to the country - particularly to Pennsylvania.

So, Donald Trump thought he'd have a little fun this weekend with the idea of Hillary Clinton being assassinated. The Republican presidential nominee suggested that, because Clinton favors restrictions on guns, her security detail should be disarmed. "Take their guns away," he proposed. "Let's see what happens to her. " There was a time when fantasizing aloud about the murder of your opponent would have been beyond the pale - but not anymore. "Absolutely nonsense," Trump's running mate, Mike Pence, told ABC News when asked if such a message could incite violence.

As a former combat veteran of the Vietnam War, living through the thrill of complete strangers trying to kill me, I cannot understand how 55 percent of military service members and veterans can support this charlatan, scam artist, service avoider, and coward - Donald Trump - according to an NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll taken a few weeks ago.

Defending Donald Trump's charitable giving, Gov. Christie said Wednesday that the GOP presidential nominee had given away "tens of millions of dollars" of his own money, even though Trump has not released, and news media have not found, evidence of such sizable giving. Christie's office did not respond to a request for comment on what donations the governor was referring to in his interview with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham. In the interview he asserted that Trump had behaved more ethically than Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in managing their respective charitable foundations.

PAT TOOMEY, in terms of a national voting trend, is in a bad place at a bad time. The place is Pennsylvania. The time is now. The reason it's bad for the first-term senator is a dramatic drop in ticket-splitting all across the nation. The trend is perhaps more problematic for Toomey than his dancing around Donald Trump (of whom he's critical but not dismissive), or dealing with Democrat Katie McGinty, who's vying to become the state's first female senator in a year the nation could well elect its first female president.

Spiro Agnew is remembered for pleading no contest to tax-evasion charges related to bribery and resigning as Richard Nixon's vice president. But his signal political achievement was igniting a campaign that endured for more than four decades painting the mainstream media as biased, liberal, and elitist. Anti-media sentiment had long been bubbling on the right when Agnew targeted what were then the Big Three television networks for representing "a concentration of power over American public opinion unknown in history.

Hillary Clinton, campaigning Monday at Temple University, told college students - many of whom are drowning in debt - that she's the candidate to address their needs. "No one will work harder to make your life better," Clinton said, promising to give young people a say in White House decision-making. Clinton told the crowd of 300 at Mitten Hall that she has a plan that would offer debt-free public college for everyone, apprentice programs for those who opt to not go to college, and high-quality child care for every family.

If you are the status quo candidate in a change election in which the national mood is sour and two-thirds of the electorate think the country is on the wrong track, what do you do? Attack. Relentlessly. Paint your opponent as extremist, volatile, clueless, unfit, dangerous. Indeed, Hillary Clinton's latest national ad, featuring major Republican politicians echoing that indictment of Donald Trump, ends thus: "Unfit. Dangerous. Even for Republicans. " That was the theme of Clinton's famous open "alt-right" speech and of much of her $100 million worth of ads. Problem is, it's not working.

When Erin McClelland addressed Pennsylvania's delegates at the Democratic National Convention, she told them that female candidates are plagued by three words: " She . Can't . Win . " McClelland pointed to contests such as hers for the 12th U.S. House District in Western Pennsylvania as races that get overlooked. "We're going to keep working," the 41-year-old health-care consultant told the crowd. "We owe that to rural Pennsylvania, we owe that to the Democratic Party, and we owe that to every woman who has the guts to put her name on the ballot.

"RACIST. SEXIST. Homophobic. Xenophobic. Islamophobic. " That was Hillary Clinton's droning description of half of the Donald Trump cohort. She later apologized for saying "half" and revised it, presumably downward, but who really knows? Trump earlier called Clinton a "bigot. " Meanwhile, Colin Kaepernick is taking a knee. Clinton's monotone recitation before an adoring crowd had an element of truth. But Democrats don't have surgically clean hands - and won't like hearing that.
