OTTAWA -- Canadians on both sides of the nation's deep linguistic divide say they were stunned by President Clinton's unexpectedly passionate appeal here for national unity and federalism.Clinton traveled to the flash point of separatism in North America and, without mentioning Quebec nationalism, argued Friday that "the United States and Canada are among the most fortunate countries in the world because we have such diversity."If every major "racial and ethnic and religious group" won independence, "we might have 800 countries in the world and have a very difficult time having a functioning economy," Clinton said, addressing a forum on federalism that earlier in the week had become a platform for complaints by Quebec separatists.

Democrat John Delaney, running for Congress in Maryland's competitive 6th District, began using a robo-call Thursday that features former President Bill Clinton. In the call, Clinton says that Delaney has "proved he knows what it takes to create jobs and grow this economy. You can count on John Delaney to stand up for the middle class and for our Democratic values. " Clinton has been a frequent presence in the race. He endorsed Delaney before the April primary and he headlined a fundraiser for him last month.

Bill Clinton has some advice for Democrats heading into the 2012 elections, and you don't have to read very far into his new book to realize that what he has to say should be of particular interest to the current occupant of the White House. The former president thinks President Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats have the right policies but have done a poor job of getting their message out. Mr. Clinton is worried that if that doesn't change, the Democrats will face another Republican shellacking like the one they endured in 2010.

Former President Bill Clinton got a Father's Day surprise from Maryland's Eastern Shore yesterday: a new chocolate Labrador retriever pup. Clinton's wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, arranged the transport of the pup from Wild Goose Kennels in Federalsburg. It's the same kennel that bred Clinton's chocolate Lab, Buddy, killed by a car in January. The new pup, named Seamus, a purebred, 5-month-old Lab, is the son of Buddy's nephew, said breeder Linda Renfro, who collaborated in the surprise delivery with Sen. Clinton's staff.

WASHINGTON - Hillary Clinton's name will be placed into nomination at the Democratic National Convention later this month, ending months of speculation about how her candidacy -- and supporters - would be represented there. "I am convinced that honoring Sen. Clinton's historic campaign in this way will help us celebrate this defining moment in our history and bring the party together in a strong, united fashion," Barack Obama said in a statement issued jointly by their two press offices.

WASHINGTON - Secretary of State-designate Hillary Clinton promised yesterday a new diplomacy that would give America "more partners and fewer adversaries," and signaled her intention to reach out to Iran and continue the uphill struggle for Middle East peace. At a five-hour Senate confirmation hearing, Clinton said she and President-elect Barack Obama would overhaul the approach of the Bush administration with a rejuvenated emphasis on diplomatic engagement, alliance-building and development.

Cordell Hull was a veteran lawmaker with a worldwide reputation when Franklin D. Roosevelt appointed him secretary of state in 1933, in part to win needed support from Hull's army of Democratic admirers. But the dignified Tennessean was never close to FDR. As time passed he was "muscled out by others in the administration," said Michael Hunt, a diplomatic historian at the University of North Carolina. Barack Obama's election as president has drawn other comparisons with Roosevelt, especially for the economic crisis he inherits.

The dream ticket is already looking like a nightmare for Barack Obama. But that doesn't mean it won't materialize. Talk of a pairing with Hillary Clinton accelerated last week, just as Obama was putting her away at the close of the longest primary season ever. Clinton's bid to claim a piece of the ticket was regarded as brazen by some experienced Democratic politicians. It could prevent another Democratic woman from eclipsing her and even sabotage Obama's chances of winning, advancing a Clinton comeback by four years, to 2012 instead of 2016.

CRAWFORD, Texas -- Perhaps not since Herbert Hoover took issue with the blame heaped on him for the Great Depression by Franklin D. Roosevelt have two presidents or their spokesmen feuded quite so publicly - and angrily - as former President Jimmy Carter and President Bush. Yesterday, the White House fired a new salvo. Carter kicked off the war of words by declaring that Bush's tenure in the White House was "the worst in history" in terms of international relations. Bush spokesman Tony Fratto, who had shrugged off the comment Saturday, decided to return fire.

SOMEBODY in the White House goofed when the chief of staff said the Bush administration would shutter offices that deal with race relations and AIDS policy. Why that decision got made is unclear, but we're glad President Bush moved quickly to reverse it. The Office of National AIDS Policy was created in 1994 to improve treatment, education and research into the deadly disease. All three remain important national and global goals. The Office on the President's Initiative for One America grew out of former President Bill Clinton's national conversation on race.

WASHINGTON - It has been hard for Hillary Clinton to step down, and even tougher for Lanny J. Davis, the longtime Clinton defender from Maryland who is the force behind an online petition to persuade Barack Obama to make her his running mate. The nascent effort has been widely criticized, and Obama said that "everybody just needs to settle down" about his selection. The Clinton campaign tried to tamp down the movement yesterday, declaring that she is not seeking the vice presidency. But Davis remains unapologetic about pushing the discussion and said critics who accuse him of pressuring Obama misrepresent what he is trying to accomplish.
