VIDEO: Hillary Clinton: Cuba embargo must go

The position, which Clinton has already outlined in her 2014 book "Hard Choices," puts her in line with President Barack Obama, who moved in December to establish diplomatic relations with Cuba and has called for normalized trade relations.

Perhaps more importantly, it draws a sharp contrast with two top Republican presidential contenders from Florida, Senator Marco Rubio and former Governor Jeb Bush, at a time when younger Cuban-American voters in Florida are softening their stance on the matter.

Clinton, Kerry join in criticism of Trump's McCain statement

In Iowa on Saturday, Trump said that he doesn't consider McCain, a prisoner of war in the Vietnam War, to be a war hero.

The front-runner for the Democratic nomination, Hillary Rodham Clinton, not only harshly criticized Trump during a campaign event in Arkansas, she accused the GOP field of being slow to repudiate Trump's other controversial statements.

Former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb to run for president

Webb, in an announcement posted on his campaign website, acknowledged he would face major hurdles but vowed to bring an outsider's voice to the 2016 race.

"I understand the odds, particularly in today's political climate, where fair debate is so often drowned out by huge sums of money. I know that more than one candidate in this process intends to raise at least a billion dollars," Webb wrote. 

Clinton says Confederate flag has no place in US

The Democratic presidential contender calls the deadly shootings of nine black church members in South Carolina "an act of racist terrorism perpetrated in a house of God."

She's welcomed news that South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and legislators are working to remove the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the South Carolina Statehouse.

Clinton addressed church members Tuesday in suburban St. Louis, near the epicenter of violent protests that occurred in Ferguson, Missouri, after the August death of Michael Brown.

House panel on Benghazi attack releases more emails

These emails were received from a longtime confidant, including both publicly available and unconfirmed material from sources about the cause of the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi that killed four Americans.

About 180 pages of emails to Clinton from Sidney Blumenthal were released Monday by a Republican-led House panel investigating the attack on Sept. 11, 2012.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., who leads the panel, said the emails were new and were not among those earlier released to the committee by the State Department or Clinton herself.
