At the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, when the Clinton administration was consumed with damage control, a White House aide reached out to Maryland Gov. Parris N. Glendening and asked the fellow Democrat to back off his criticism of the president, according to a trove of documents released Friday by the Clinton Presidential Library. President Bill Clinton's former director of intergovernmental affairs, Mickey Ibarra, wrote in a Sept. 7, 1998, memo that he spoke to Glendening the day before and "delivered our message (it does not help any of us to pile on)

So Maryland Speaker of the House Michael E. Busch and fellow "high-rolling" Democrats guffawed at Bill Clinton's joking about the contrast between public housing and the "posh estate" when they were gathered Tuesday night for a million-dollar fund-raiser, reveling in "one of Maryland's wealthiest communities" ( "Brown gets boost from Bill Clinton," Oct. 1). And this from the Democratic Party that likes to portray itself as so caring and compassionate, yet is so entrenched in one-party rule as to be only beholden to millionaire donors and lobbyists.

Maryland Lottery spokeswoman Carole Everett said that the winning ticket was a manual pick, meaning that the purchaser chose the numbers. The winning numbers were 4, 23, 30, 43, 50 and 11 (Mega Ball). Everett added that the winning ticket came on the last draw of a 15-draw advanced purchase. The ticket was purchased on Aug. 27, and the winner now has 182 days to claim the prize, Everett said.

Washington. -- When President Clinton travels to Ireland this fall, he will be inviting comparison with his political idol, President John F. Kennedy, who also went there in search of his family roots.The similarities between Bill Clinton and Kennedy, however, pretty much end with their mutual Irish heritage.Mr. Clinton's trip is billed as a diplomatic effort to encourage the peace process in Northern Ireland, reinforcing his embarrassingly slender credentials as an active world leader.Sporadic violence recently halted the talks between the British government and Sinn Fein, the political arm of the Irish Republican Army, aimed at settling a guerrilla war that has raged for 25 years.

Gov. Douglas Wilder was expected to do well in Maryland's early-bird presidential primary. A recent poll showed him leading all Democrats, with strong support coming from blacks in Prince George's County near the governor's home state of Virginia. With Wilder out, Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, who came in second in that poll, is the front runner. He has more money, a better organization and, in Maryland and elsewhere, strong support from elected Democratic officials. Eighteen Maryland state senators and 36 delegates have already endorsed him. With Wilder on the sidelines, Clinton, the only Democratic presidential candidate with a history of winning large-scale black support, has suddenly become formidable in what may be the most influential Maryland primary in years.

New grandmother and former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton has decided to stay home in New York with daughter Chelsea today, skipping a planned high-dollar fundraiser for Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown.  Instead, former President Bill Clinton will headline the event in her place.  "I am very grateful to President Clinton for changing his schedule to travel to Maryland and attend our event this evening," Lt.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is scheduled to host what might be the single biggest fundraiser for Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown tonight in Potomac. The former secretary of state and potential presidential candidate is headlining Brown's 5 p.m. event at a wooded 2.8-acre estate in the wealthy Washington suburb. Tickets cost $4,000 each - even more for VIP tickets, according to an event invitation. Brown campaign manager Justin Schall said as many as 500 people might attend and the campaign expects to raise more than $1 million - a sum greater than that garnered during a May fundraiser for Brown featuring former President Bill Clinton.

The Baltimore Sun Subbing for new grandmother Hillary Clinton on late notice, former President Bill Clinton became the star attraction Tuesday night at a fundraiser for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Anthony G. Brown at a posh estate in Potomac. The Brown campaign said the former president helped Brown draw about 450 guests and raise more than $1.2 million for his campaign against Republican Larry Hogan in the Nov. 4 election. Hillary Clinton, the presumed Democratic front-runner for the 2016 presidential nomination, had been the expected headliner at the big-ticket event at an estate in one of Maryland's wealthiest communities.

In the rare moments when he speaks candidly about running for president, Gov. Martin O'Malley uses phrases such as "fundamentally newer" and "new way of leadership" to describe his approach - language intended to highlight the data-driven management style for which he is widely recognized. But it isn't hard to read another, more subtle message between the lines: The young, guitar-slinging governor represents a more youthful crop of Democrats, while the presumed front-runner for the nomination in 2016, Hillary Clinton, might struggle to do so. As he winds down his final months in Annapolis and crisscrosses the country in anticipation of a full-scale national campaign, O'Malley has delicately tried to draw contrasts with the former first lady, senator and secretary of state without appearing confrontational - or even using her name.

After playing at being a TV correspondent and doing some of the worst on-air network reporting I have seen in 30 years of writing about media, Chelsea Clinton is declaring victory and moving on, she told People magazine. Here's an indication of how People reported this "exclusive" news: After not quite three years as a special correspondent for NBC News - and with just a little while until she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expected to become parents - the former first daughter is now leaving that position, she tells PEOPLE in a statement, "to continue focusing on my work at the Clinton Foundation and as Marc and I look forward to welcoming our first child.

Hillary Clinton's tactical retreat in her soft apology and meet-up with President Obama at Martha's Vineyard, after her ill-timed criticism of his "failure" in aiding Syrian refugees, indicates she may not be quite ready to put her best foot forward for the 2016 presidential race. Her remark in her interview with The Atlantic magazine, otherwise fulsome in praise of him, came at a time when Mr. Obama is struggling with a full plate of foreign policy woes. Inadvertently or not, it seemed politically self-serving, as she seems bent on shoring up her own acceptance with the more liberal elements in her own party.

Jonathan Strum's commentary on Hillary Clinton's presidential prospects resonated deeply with me ("Dynasty or democracy?" Aug. 18). We have had quite enough of the Bush and Clinton families already. For the sake of a healthy republic it would be best, as he points out so well, if name recognition and money did not determine governance. I think that there is enough dysfunction in our political system already. We don't need to add to it the dysfunction of these political families.

Thank you to William L. Jacobsen Jr. for his commentary in The Baltimore Sun ( "President Hillary Clinton," July 31). As a woman reader of The Sun, I'm feeling as though this commentary is the first draft for one to be written on Wednesday, November 9, 2016. I'm also feeling that the same lingo about President Barack Obama will be a tagline for Ms. Clinton. If we didn't want Barack Obama to become president of the United States we are racist. If we don't want Hilary Clinton to be president of the United States we are misogynists.
