Putting their money where their mouth is

Hillary Clinton said two weeks ago that her family was "dead broke" when they left the White House in 2001. She quickly tried to clean up the comments.

But the clean-up doesn't appear to have been committed to memory.

In an interview with Britain's Guardian published over the weekend, Clinton reignited the debate over her wealth by comparing herself to other wealthy people who Clinton said were "truly well off."

Today, Joe Biden touted his modest finances. He's long joked about his modest financial standing, but on Monday Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged he's come a long way since being listed among the poorest members of Congress.

Clinton defends paid speeches

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton defended the fact she's reportedly made $5 million in speaking fees since leaving the State Department in early 2013 by arguing that her family "came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt."

Pressed by ABC's Diane Sawyer in a clip of an interview that will air in full on Monday night, Clinton added that her family had "no money" when they left the White House more than a dozen years ago and "struggled to piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea's education."

Hillary the "inevitable" Dem candidate?

Hillary Clinton's name was the talk of the town on Sunday, as political talk shows were filled with attacks, speculation and praise.

Could posing Hillary as the "inevitable" candidate end up hurting Democrats? Are both parties so focused on Clinton that they're missing opportunities in 2014?
