One thing Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have in common — they both like to have big things named after them.
The latest batch of emails released by the State Department uncovers a massive ego trip by the former secretary of State.
On the heels of polls showing Bernie Sanders chopping 15 points off Hillary’s lead in Iowa — narrowing her advantage to 50-45 — Hillary Clinton has sent out an email to her supporters today (Wednesday, Dec. 23) warning them to brace themselves for the chance that she might lose Iowa or New Hampshire.
In the latest Rasmussen Reports poll, taken right after the third and most recent Democratic debate shows that Hillary has lost crucial ground in the Democratic nomination battle.
Before the debate, Rasmussen had her defeating Bernie Sanders by 50-29 (a margin of 21). Now her lead is down to 16 points – 46 to 30.

Last week, on the “Charlie Rose” show, former Obama CIA Director Mike Morell dropped a bombshell that was little noticed by the media. He said that the reason President Obama did not bomb the oil fields now controlled by Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was that he did not want to cause environmental damage.
The Huffington Post has reported that days before Hillary Clinton left office, she sent a confidential memo to the President urging him to transfer the terrorists housed in the Guantanamo military detention facility to the U.S.
It’s time for Governor Chris Christie to drop out of this cluttered, overcrowded race for president.
Polling data out this past weekend shows what a train wreck his campaign has been: The ABC News poll has him at just 2 percent.
In the wake of the ISIS Paris attacks, Donald Trump has moved to a clear lead over Ben Carson and the rest of the GOP field.
