Iran asks UNs highest court to suspend US sanctions


first_imgTHE HAGUE, Netherlands – Iran warned Monday that re-imposed U.S. sanctions would cripple its economy and plunge the volatile Middle East deeper into crisis as it urged the United Nations’ highest court to suspend the Trump administration’s economic pressure on Tehran.In a written statement about the case at the International Court of Justice, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called Iran’s claims “meritless” and defended the sanctions as a way of keeping Americans safe.The world court’s wood-paneled Great Hall of Justice in The Hague is the latest backdrop for Washington and Tehran’s high-stakes dispute about Iran’s nuclear ambitions.President Donald Trump said in May that he would pull the U.S. out of a 2015 agreement over Iran’s nuclear program and would re-impose sanctions on Tehran. Washington also threatened other countries with sanctions if they don’t cut off Iranian oil imports by early November.Iran filed a case with the court in July challenging the re-imposition. Tehran alleges that the sanctions breach a 1955 bilateral agreement known as the Treaty of Amity that regulates and promotes economic and consular ties between the two countries.The treaty was signed when the U.S. and Iran were still allies following the 1953 revolution — fomented by Britain and the U.S. — that ultimately cemented the rule of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.However, diplomatic relations were severed following the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran and takeover of the U.S. Embassy and ensuing hostage crisis. Despite that dramatic deterioration in relations, the treaty remains in force.Iran and the U.S. have a history of litigation at the International Court of Justice, in cases covering crises including the embassy seizure and the shooting down of an Iranian passenger jet mistaken by a U.S. warship for a fighter jet.Rulings by the world court, which settles disputes between nations, are final and legally binding. However, it remains to be seen if the U.S. would abide by a court order to suspend sanctions on Iran.At Monday’s hearings, Tehran asked judges to urgently order a suspension of the sanctions while the case challenging their legality is being heard — a process that can take years. A decision on the urgent request for a suspension is likely to take weeks.Iranian representative Mohsen Mohebi told the court the U.S. sanctions are a clear breach of the 1955 treaty because they are “intended to damage, as severely as possible, Iran’s economy.” He called Trump’s sanctions policy “nothing but a naked economic aggression against my country.”Mohebi also warned that the sanctions could exacerbate regional tensions.His comments came a day after Iran’s defence minister said his country will continue its support of the Syrian government to ensure improved security in the region. Israel has expressed concern over Iran’s growing influence in Syria, accusing Tehran of seeking to establish a foothold near the frontier with the Jewish state. The United States has been pressing for Iran to withdraw its fighters from Syria.Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal, brokered when Barack Obama was still in the White House, imposed restrictions on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program in return for the lifting of most U.S. and international sanctions against Tehran.However, the deal came with time limits and did not address Iran’s ballistic missile program or its regional policies in Syria and elsewhere. Trump called the accord the “worst deal ever.”Some U.S. allies oppose the sanctions and are seeking to keep the nuclear deal alive. Last week, the European Union announced a financial support package to help bolster Iran’s flagging economy.Pompeo called the world court challenge an attempt by Tehran “to interfere with the sovereign rights of the United States to take lawful actions, including re-imposition of sanctions, which are necessary to protect our national security.”The United States, which argues that the court does not have jurisdiction in the case, is to present its legal arguments to judges on Tuesday.Pompeo said lawyers would “vigorously defend” the U.S. and “and we will continue to work with our allies to counter the Iranian regime’s destabilizing activities in the region, block their financing of terror, and address Iran’s proliferation of ballistic missiles and other advanced weapons systems that threaten international peace and stability. We will also ensure Iran has no path to a nuclear weapon — not now, not ever.”last_img read more

Closing Bell TSX closes lower after World Bank cuts global growth forecast


TORONTO — The Toronto stock market closed lower Wednesday with traders focusing on global economic conditions in the wake of a cut in the World Bank’s global growth forecast for this year and the latest take on the U.S. economy by the Federal Reserve.Here are the closing numbersTSX — 12,608.82 -33.15 -0.3%S&P 500 — 1,472.63 +0.29 +0.0%Dow — 13,511.23 -23.66 -0.2%Nasdaq — 3,117.54 6.77 +0.2%The S&P/TSX composite index lost 33.15 points to 12,608.82 while the TSX Venture Exchange slipped 1.59 points to 1,230.2.The Canadian dollar was down 0.21 of a cent to 101.41 cents US.U.S. indexes were mixed with the Dow Jones industrials down 23.66 points to 13,511.23 amid more problems for aircraft maker Boeing.Boeing stock fell 3.38% to US$74.34 as Japan’s two biggest airlines grounded all their Boeing 787 aircraft for safety checks after one was forced to make an emergency landing in the latest blow for the new jet.The 787, known as the Dreamliner, is Boeing’s newest and most technologically advanced jet. But since its launch, which came after delays of more than three years, the plane has been plagued by a string of problems, including battery and fuel-leak problems.The Nasdaq edged up 6.76 points to 3,117.54 while the S&P 500 index added 0.29 of a point to 1,472.63.The Fed says 12 of its regional banking districts reported “modest or moderate” growth in the final weeks of 2012.But the Fed also reported that employers in some parts of the country delayed hiring because of uncertainty over the fiscal cliff. Congress and the White House reached a deal on taxes on Jan. 1, but put off decisions on government spending cuts.Now, there is increasing nervousness about a fight brewing in Washington over raising the U.S. debt ceiling so that the government can keep borrowing money to pay its bills. The U.S. Treasury says it will run out of money to pay all the government’s obligations sometime in February or March if Congress doesn’t raise the current $16.4 trillion limit on borrowing.Markets were already lacklustre after the World Bank on Tuesday projected that the global economy will expand by 2.4% in 2013, down from a forecast of 3% growth in June.“Overall, the global economic environment remains fragile and prone to further disappointment, although the balance of risks is now less skewed to the downside than it has been in recent years,” the World Bank said in its twice-yearly report.The base metals component led TSX decliners, down 1.62% as the World Bank report raised demand concerns, pushing March copper on the New York Mercantile Exchange down three cents to US$3.61 a pound.Sid Mokhtari, market technician at CIBC World Markets, noted that the report would not have come as a complete surprise to markets.“We have to assume that the market tends to price a lot of stuff in ahead of time so by the time it gets published by the World Bank, you would think the majority of those assumptions were priced in,” he said.“Having said that, the dominant behaviour of the commodities are still on the weaker side. We have to see better data out of China, which has been the case (recently) and maybe another round of better sentiment out of Europe.”Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) shed 69 cents to C$36.28.Oil prices were off the lows of the morning as data showed an unexpected drop in U.S. inventories last week. The U.S. Energy Information Administration said crude supplies declined by one million barrels last week. Analysts polled by Platts expected a 2.5-million-barrel climb.Energy prices also found lift after Islamist militants attacked and occupied a natural gas complex partly operated by energy company BP in southern Algeria.February crude was up 96 cents at US$94.24 a barrel and the energy sector was down 0.35%. Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) gave back 35 cents to C$28.74.The gold sector was off about 0.4% while February bullion declined 70 cents to US$1,683.20 an ounce. Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) faded 34 cents to C$33.69.The TSX tech sector advanced after Research In Motion (TSX:RIM) said the Visa credit card system has approved the smartphone company’s method for handling secure mobile payments. The green light from Visa is a step towards offering global support for any device equipped with the BlackBerry maker’s mobile payments technology and its shares were up 28 cents or 1.96% higher at $14.55.In other corporate news, Canadian autoparts giant Magna International Inc. (TSX:MG) says it expects between US$31.3 billion and US$32.7 billion of sales globally this year. About half of the 2013 total will come from the sale of parts to North American manufacturing operations.Its stock added 96 cents to C$52.14.Meanwhile, there was good news from the American banking sector.JPMorgan Chase, the country’s biggest bank by assets, says its fourth-quarter earnings shot up 55% over the year to US$5.3 billion or $1.40 a share, far above the $1.16 per share expected by analysts.

To prevent flu pandemic UN health agency calls for global medical stockpile


“Right now, many wealthy countries are creating their own stockpiles of antivirals. However, poor countries simply cannot afford to do this,” UN World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Lee Jong-wook said in welcoming a donation to its rapid-response stockpile of 3 million treatment courses of the antiviral oseltamivir from the Roche company.“If a flu pandemic were to emerge in a poor country for example, these drugs could be flown quickly to the centre of a potential pandemic. We urge other countries to help us build up the international stockpile,” he told a news conference in Geneva. “Preparing the world for a pandemic strain of influenza is a WHO priority. It must also be a priority for every country in the world. Coordinated and effective action can reduce the death, suffering and social disruption a pandemic would otherwise cause.”Ever since the first human case of bird flu, linked to widespread poultry outbreaks in Viet Nam and Thailand, was reported in January last year, WHO has warned that the virus, H5N1, could evolve into a global influenza pandemic if it changes into a form which could transmit easily between people. The so-called Spanish flu pandemic of 1918-1920, unrelated to the present virus, is estimated to have killed between 20 million and 40 million people worldwide. Just last week WHO voiced concern over H5N1’s expanding geographical range to Russia and Kazakhstan, although there have been no human cases reported there. The longer H5N1 continues to circulate, the greater the possibility that people will be infected with it, and therefore the greater the risk that the virus will adapt to people and trigger a pandemic, the agency said today.“The timing and severity of a flu pandemic is uncertain, but experts predict a pandemic will occur,” it added in a news release. “Therefore WHO continues to urge countries to develop preparedness plans. Planning must include international cooperation between wealthy and poor countries to reduce the opportunity for national and international spread, and to reduce the death, illness and social disruption.”Should a pandemic strain emerge, “slowing its spread will be vital as this could buy valuable time to produce vaccines against the virus and introduce other emergency measures,” it added. “Antivirals, used intensively in an area where a pandemic is emerging, combined with other measures such as quarantine and isolation, could help to delay spread.”In the agreement signed today, Roche has committed to providing 3 million treatment courses which would be dispatched to people in greatest need at the site of an emerging pandemic.Oseltamivir could help to reduce illness and death, and when combined with other measures, could potentially contain an emerging pandemic virus or slow its national and international spread. If it reaches the site of an outbreak quickly, an antiviral stockpile could especially help people in poorer countries.Overall, there have been 112 reported human infections, 57 of them fatal, all in South-East Asia. Nearly 140 million domestic birds have died or been culled in an effort to curb the spread of the disease. read more

Un ver marin velu des profondeurs séchoue sur une plage anglaise


first_imgUn ver marin velu des profondeurs s’échoue sur une plage anglaiseRelatée par le DailyMail, la découverte, sur une plage du Kent, d’une étrange petite créature velue a causé une vive émotion à la promeneuse qui a croisé le chemin de l’animal voici quelques jours…”J’ai d’abord pensé que c’était une sorte d’alien – les poils avaient des couleurs des plus fantastiques. Je n’ai jamais rien vu de tel auparavant. C’était comme une souris morte – velue, très velue”, explique Julie Sherrard qui est tombée sur une créature tout à fait étrange alors qu’elle se promenait avec son fils de 6 ans sur une plage, près de Folkstone, dans le Kent. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Mon fils a été très surpris par ses petites pattes. Elle ‘respirait’ encore, donc je ne voulais pas la laisser mourir. Je l’ai rejetée à la mer, puis j’ai eu l’horrible pensée que cela pouvait ne pas être une créature marine, après tout”, s’inquiète la Britannique de 48 ans. A voir, la tête de la fameuse créature, on peut comprendre la surprise et le doute que celle-ci a ressentis. Mais que cette amoureuse des animaux se rassure : l’animal venait bien de la mer, et ne risquait donc pas de se noyer lorsqu’elle l’a remis à l’eau. Il s’agissait de ce que les Anglo-saxons appellent une ‘souris de mer’ – un annélide (ver marin) du genre Aphrodita. Cette étrange créature des profondeurs vit dans l’Atlantique et en Méditerranée, jusqu’à 2.000 mètres de fond. Mais le spécimen trouvé avait probablement été rejeté à terre par une tempête. Aveugle et hermaphrodite, cet invertébré ne mesure pas plus de 12 centimètres de long, et est doté de petits appendices qui lui servent de ‘pattes’. Ajouté à cela, il a le dos couvert de ‘poils’ rouges, qui peuvent virer au bleu ou au vert. Le 20 janvier 2013 à 17:11 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Kevin Owens says ROH and New Japan should be grateful to WWE


first_imgFacebook Pinterest The Gorilla Position recently spoke with WWE star Kevin Owens over SummerSlam weekend and got his thoughts about Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling selling out Madison Square Garden over WrestleMania 35 weekend next year.Owens, a former Ring of Honor World Champion, was asked if he saw this advancement as a threat to WWE. Owens disagreed, citing how it was great for everyone involved and how WWE thrives on competition when big things like this take place.Owens did however wonder if ROH and NJPW could do this without WWE in town.Excerpts courtesy of Fightful.“But, I think it would be silly for people to look at these companies thriving and not feel like WWE is a big part of them thriving as well. Even Ring of Honor selling out Madison Square Garden is fantastic, it’s unbelievable. But they’re selling it out on WrestleMania weekend you know what I mean? So, I feel people should still be a bit grateful to WWE and I know a lot of people–that’s not the cool thing, to admit that WWE might not be this giant thing trying to hurt the indies. I know that’s what a lot of people feel they are but I couldn’t disagree more and I hope that one day, Ring of Honor can sell out Madison Square Garden when WWE’s not in town and I’m sure… everything points to that happening eventually and that’s amazing.”Owens also felt the ALL IN event selling out was more impressive.“Look at All In. All In was Cody and The Young Bucks’ idea and they took it and they ran with it and they made into something huge. Like in my opinion, All In is almost (more) impressive than Ring of Honor selling out Madison Square Garden because they did it on their own and there’s not a giant, wrestling extravaganza that same weekend in the same town–like those people are going for All In and that’s awesome. But everybody who gets to benefit from that; whether its the fans or the wrestlers, how can you call that a bad thing? Its great.”You can check out the full interview with Owens above courtesy of Gorilla Position.

New South Park episode hates freetoplay games like everyone else


first_imgComedy Central’s South Park tends to get around to most social issues or topical events if given enough time. The show isn’t afraid to go in-depth about the niche subcultures it often covers, such as the famous World of Warcraft episode not pulling any punches when it comes to MMO mechanics or terminology. This time around, South Park aims its iron sights at the freemium payment model so prevalent in modern day video games — and the episode doesn’t disappoint.The episode, titled Freemium Isn’t Free, begins with Kyle playing a builder game — the genre with its roots in browser builders such as Travian and Ikariam that manifests today as games like The Simpsons: Tapped Out and Peter Molyneux’s Godus. Begin with a blank canvas of a town, collect resources by tapping on them, build buildings on empty plots, wait through an ever-increasing timer for them to complete, and then it’s on to the next improvement.The kids all find the payment model and game mechanics dumb, though they all admit they paid a bit of cash to try out the “free” game. Even Cartman, who generally aligns himself with the issue on which a given episode is commenting, finds the payment model dumb.Of course, the mobile game developer is located in Canada, and the show gets its customary shots in at the country. When resident Canadian celebrities Terrance and Phillip realize the mobile game portraying them is lying about its payment model, they head to the game developers, who explain the secret behind “freemium” games.Perhaps better than anyone has thus far, South Park explains the cycle of freemium games — by likening them to the traditional RPG loop grind. In an RPG — most notably, MMOs — you run around and look for things to kill or collect, then kill or collect those things, gain experience points and currency, use those experience points and currency to improve your character, then repeat the cycle.You can watch the full episode above and eagerly nod in agreement the whole time, and watch the handy clip below where the show explains the cycle of freemium games.This is likely the first time the payment model has been skewered by such a large, mainstream outlet, and it’s refreshing to see. Now, if only South Park can do an episode on how seemingly nearly every mobile game requires an always-on connection nowadays.last_img read more

Yoga may help treat chronic lower back pain


first_imgPracticing yoga may have health benefits for people with chronic lower back pain, according to a latest review of research conducted in India, the UK and the US.Lower back pain is a common health problem, and is usually treated with self-care and over-the-counter medication. For some people it may last for three months or more, and at this point it is considered “chronic”.Back pain is sometimes associated with a disease or condition, but the vast majority of lower back pain cases have an unknown cause, and as a Also Read – Add new books to your shelfresult are described as non-specific. Current guidelines state that exercise therapy may be beneficial, and in particular yoga is sometimes used as a treatment.”Our findings suggest that yoga exercise may lead to reducing the symptoms of lower back pain by a small amount,” said Susan Wieland from the University of Maryland in the US.Yoga has gained global popularity as a form of mind-body exercise, with general life-style benefits, and recent studies have investigated the Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsivepotential of yoga to relieve the symptoms of lower back related problems. The new review summarises the results of 12 randomised trials from 1,080 men and women with an average age between 34 and 48 years old. The trials were conducted in India, the UK and the US. All participants had chronic non-specific lower back pain.The researchers included studies that compared practising yoga in a class to not doing any back-focused exercise, or to other forms of exercise. Seven studies compared yoga with no exercise, three studies compared yoga with back-focused exercise, or added yoga for a back-focused exercise programme.Two studies compared yoga with two other forms of control group: no exercise or a self-care book. All yoga interventions used were specifically designed for treatment of lower back pain, and were provided by experienced and qualified teachers.Researchers found that compared to no exercise, practising yoga might improve back-related function and may also reduce symptoms of lower back pain by a small amount in the first six to twelve months, although the effect was consistently less than that judged to be clinically important. However, larger and more robust studies with longer follow up are needed to draw any firm conclusions about the long-term health effects of yoga.However, yoga may cause an increase in back pain in some people. About five per cent more yoga participants experienced increased back pain, although this may be similar to the risk of having side effects from other back-focused exercise.”At the moment we only have low to moderate quality evidence for the effects of yoga before six months as a type of exercise for helping people with chronic lower back pain,” said Wieland.The research was published in the journal Cochrane Library.last_img read more

first_imgRelated posts:Costa Rica, EU and Latam contact group on Venezuela will meet Thursday Guaidó-appointed ambassador takes possession of Venezuelan embassy in Costa Rica Guaidó calls for mass protests ahead of return to Venezuela Monday Guaido vows to oust Maduro as thousands of Venezuelans protest Sanctions have worsened Venezuela’s crippling economic and political crisis, the UN human rights chief said Wednesday, as Washington warned it may expand measures targeting President Nicoolás Maduro’s government.UN rights chief Michelle Bachelet said sanctions had exacerbated the crisis but also slammed Maduro’s “violations of civil and political rights” in her annual report to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.“Venezuela clearly illustrates the way violations of civil and political rights — including failure to uphold fundamental freedoms, and the independence of key institutions — can accentuate a decline of economic and social rights,” said former Chile President Bachelet.Venezuelans have been battered by an economic meltdown, shortages of food and medicine and a bitter political standoff between Maduro and opposition leader Juan Guaidó — who has been recognized as interim president by more than 50 countries.“This situation has been exacerbated by sanctions,” Bachelet said.Washington, which has recognized Venezuela’s opposition chief Juan Guaidó as the country’s leader, imposed sanctions on Venezuela’s state oil company PDVSA last month.It has also handed Guaidó control of Venezuela’s bank accounts in the United States.The U.S. envoy for the crisis in Venezuela, Elliott Abrams, said Tuesday that Washington was weighing more punitive measures to increase the pressure on Maduro.Guaidó vowed Tuesday to increase pressure on Maduro, who in turn promised to crush a “crazed minority” that wants to remove him from power.The 35-year-old National Assembly leader returned home to a hero’s welcome on Monday, having defied a ban on leaving the country to embark on a 10-day tour of South American allies. He remains free despite the threat of arrest by the government.

(Federico Parra / AFP)“They thought the pressure had reached its zenith, but it’s only just beginning,” Guaidó told reporters.On Tuesday, a national holiday, he met public sector union leaders.“Public sector workers have lost practically all their rights, we have no other option but to call for a civic strike,” said Guaidó, without giving further details.Maduro, meanwhile, pressed his supporters to hold “anti-imperialist” marches Saturday to counter fresh protests planned by Guaidó.“Today more than ever, we are victorious against the conspiracy, against blackmail, while a crazy minority continues with their hatred,” he said in his first public comments since Guaidó’s return.When he returned to Caracas — his latest challenge to Maduro’s authority — Guaidó announced to tens of thousands of supporters his plans for new protests.He has vowed to set up a transitional government and hold new elections.U.S. envoy Abrams said that given Maduro’s low popularity, it would be “a gift” if he decided to run in fresh polls.“That’s ultimately a decision for Venezuelans to make,” Abrams said.‘Paralyzed public administration’As part of his challenge to Maduro, Guaidó is attempting to take control of the state bureaucracy, which he considers to have been “kidnapped” through blackmail and persecution.Unions from the oil industry, basic services, the public bank and local government took part in Tuesday’s meeting, union leader Ana Yanez told AFP.“The public administration is practically paralyzed. In the town halls, people only go to work three days a week and even then barely half the day,” said Yanez.

Officers in Congo benefitting from mineral trade


first_imgGOMA, Congo (AP) – Armed groups and high-ranking officers in the Congolese and Burundian armies are continuing to benefit from the illegal mineral trade in eastern Congo, despite international efforts to clean up the supply chain, according to a report published Tuesday by an environmental watchdog group.Although there are signs of improvement in Congo’s tin and tantalum sectors, the “progress remains localized,” said the report by London-based Global Witness. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Senior Congolese officers also abuse their position to benefit from the minerals trade, says the report.Gen. Gabriel Amissi, the former army chief of staff, used his power to control the Omate gold mine in Walikale, says Global Witness.“Col. Mundos, a former member of the Presidential guard, manages collection of daily production at the mine site on behalf of the general,” says the report.Gen. Amissi was removed from his post in November 2012, following the revelations in the United Nations Group of Experts report, showing Amissi had provided weapons and ammunition to a local armed group called the Raia Mutomboki. Amissi is still benefiting from the gold trade through the patronage network he was set up, Global Witness says. Amissi, currently in the Congolese capital, Kinshasa, has not been charged with a crime.Although smuggling remains widespread, ongoing international efforts to clean up the trade have led to some improvements, says the report. In October 2012, the Conflict-Free Tin Initiative launched in the Kalimbi mine attempted to set up a system to trace the minerals’ journey out of Congo and ensure that the metals mined here do not contribute to the conflict. Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Top Stories Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day Comments   Share   center_img “Although localized, these positive developments represent emerging opportunities for responsible sourcing, which the Congolese government, companies and international donors should support and develop,” says the report.Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank law, passed by the United States Congress in July 2010, requires that American companies apply due diligence to make sure that the minerals they are buying from the Great Lakes region are not conflict minerals. The European Commission is currently considering a similar supply chain initiative for European companies.These initiatives have received mixed reviews, with critics pointing to the little impact they have had on the conflict itself, as well as the harmful, de facto embargo by U.S. companies leading to many local miners losing their livelihood.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist The gold trade in particular remains a problem. Because gold is easily smuggled across borders and proper checks are not carried out by local buyers in the Great Lakes region or by international traders, tons of the mineral mined in eastern Congo are smuggled to neighboring Burundi every year. Laundered through the Burundian local gold trade, the mineral is then exported to Dubai where it is bought by international traders, said the report.High-ranking officers in both the Congolese and Burundian armies are benefiting from the illegal trade, as well as local armed rebels who use the cash to buy weapons in order to carry on their fight, according to the research by Global Witness. Moreover, armed groups often fight each other over the control of mines.Eastern Congo’s population bears the brunt of the conflict fueled by the corrupted mineral trade. Last week, two groups fought each other for control of Pinga, in the Walikale territory, a mineral-rich area in the North Kivu province of eastern Congo. Thousands of people fled into the forest to avoid the clashes between the APCLS and Mai Mai Cheka rebels. Eleven employees of international charity Doctors Without Borders went missing.

Write to Laura Stampler at laurastampler@timecomIDEAS Troy is a professor of history at McGill University and the author of The Age of Clinton: America in the 1990s As Hillary Clinton prepares for the first Democratic debate on Tuesday she should consult one of Americas most experienced presidential debaters: her husband More actor than orator Bill Clinton was not the most eloquent debater And his wife is the great family phrase-maker having popularized iconic clichés including "the vast right-wing conspiracy" "3 AM" gut checks and the "glass ceiling" Moreover the most memorable 1992 debate highlights included one unfortunate gesture made by Clintons rival President George HW Bush and one line Bush never even uttered Still debates have become modern Americas gladiatorial contests political death matches wherein simply surviving can be miraculous And like a rock star whose lyrics are incomprehensible Clintons real power was in his overall performance Bill Clintons great skill during the 1992 debateand as presidentwas combining genuine compassion with a mastery of policy proposals that he believed would heal America Hillary Clinton lacks her husbands natural people skills She held her own during the 2008 debates appearing smart and informed but far from natural She doesnt seem to love having an audience like her husband does The contrast between them makes her look even stiffer than she is Even worse she is often too cautious to pitch policies passionately although the latest school violence roused her to endorse gun control eloquently For Bill Clinton his defining 1992 debate moment occurred when President George HW Bush glanced at his watch then stumbled through a question about how "the national debt personally affected" him during the Oct 15 Town Hall-style debate Clinton had lobbied hard for such an audience-focused format Bush fell into Clintons trap failing to discern the meaning behind the question then sounding like the high-toned WASP he was trying to pretend not to be He responded: "Are you suggesting that if somebody has means that the national debt doesn’t affect them" Bushs bumbling fed a national delusionstill occasionally recycled by reportersthat Bush did not know the cost of a gallon of milk This false political memory miscoded a real incident ascribing a gaffe that happened elsewhere to the overhyped debates The electronic scanner of a mock supermarket checkout at a technology exhibition "amazed" Bush even though it was as magical to most Americans by 1992 as a cell phone is today Both the debate mistake he made and the one he didnt reinforced Clintons critique that Bush was an out-of-touch patrician ready for forced retirement Bill Clinton exploited Bushs stumble subtly thenHillary take notetelegraphed caring concern and commitment A political maestro Clinton knew how to connect emotionally with suffering voters The young charismatic Arkansas governor approached the questioner who had asked the debt question and said: "Tell me how it’s affected you again" as if he were auditioning to be Americas therapist-in-chief The woman hesitated so Clinton filled in the blanks asking (not telling): "You know people who’ve lost their jobs and lost their homes" He then plunged into his usual "Arkansas governor as mayor friend and savior" speech emphasizing that as governor of a small state he knew people who were suffering he was alleviating that suffering and he had the right formula for ending our national suffering Clinton also offered an artful dodge that night which might help Hillary with the email server headache Refusing to attack Bush personally Clinton said: "I’m not interested in his character I want to change the character of the presidency" For Tuesday’s debate Bill should coach Hill to keep smiling keep caring and keep thinking during the debate without getting distracted by the three-ring journalistic circus She should not let Bernie Sanders annoy her or yank her too far left Given her latest late night talk show outingsdrinking on Jimmy Fallon and playing a bartender on Saturday Night Liveshe may be tempted to keep trying these folksy woman-of-the-people gestures But debates require what we thought of in the 1990s as a Clintonesque mix of substance and showmanship Hillary Clinton needs to show the American people that she loves politics that she loves people and
