An interesting article from the Washington Post, published on July 22, 2016.
Feb. 22, 1999, the country’s attention was riveted on the U.S. Capitol. For only the second time in U.S. history, the Senate was set to vote on whether to remove an impeached president from office.
But in the private residence on the second floor of the White House, the topic at hand was someone else’s political career.
First lady Hillary Clinton had summoned longtime adviser Harold Ickes to discuss a delicate question: What would it take to become a senator herself — specifically, to win an open seat in New York, a state in which she had never lived?

Almost 100 people gathered at the Coastsider Senior Center on Tuesday the 17th to hear noted environmentalist Tom Steyer speak about the work he is doing on environmental and government issues. Steyer is the founder of the group Nextgen Climate, a San Francisco-based environmental advocacy organization.” Its mission is to “act politically to prevent climate disaster and promote prosperity for every American.”
Steyer spoke for about 30 minutes and then took a number of questions on important issues, including education, the need for community engagement, and affordable housing. He noted that Donald Trump had just stated that he would renegotiate the Paris Climate Accords. Steyer said “Trump’s denunciation of the Paris climate accord is not only short sighted, but would be terribly costly for America and our ability to lead the world. We cannot go backwards on this important step towards a clean energy economy that benefits all our families.”
Club president Bill Kehoe thanked Steyer for coming to speak to the Coastside Dems, adding “We appreciate the opportunity to hear from someone who really is working to make a difference in the world.”
