Top 4 Political Stories of the Day

Newly released documents from the Clinton White House reveal a candid assessment of the looming fight over the administration’s doomed health care plan, as advisers tried unsuccessfully to steer the sprawling legislation through Congress. A series of 1993 memos and briefing notes shows how the Clinton White House anticipated but was ultimately overwhelmed by Republican lines of attack against the health care reform effort, which collapsed under criticism through 1993 and 1994. Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, the independence veteran in power for 15 years, won re-election on Friday with more than 80 percent of a vote opponents dismissed as fraud to keep an ailing leader in power. Bouteflika had cast his vote sitting in a wheelchair on Thursday in what was a rare public appearance since suffering a stroke last year that raised questions about stability in the North African OPEC oil-exporting state. The State Department is giving federal agencies more time to review the Keystone XL pipeline before deciding whether to issue a permit. That could push a decision about the controversial oil pipeline until after the midterm elections in November. The State Department is citing a recent decision by a Nebraska judge that overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline's path through the state. The State Department says that created uncertainty and ongoing litigation. The government is not saying how much longer the review will take. But it says the process isn't starting over. James Franco 's former manager was robbing the actor blind for nearly a decade by skimming commissions and running up huge tabs on Franco's credit card ... this according to a lawsuit filed by the manager's own firm. Miles Levy allegedly told his partners at James Levy Management that Franco no longer wanted to pay their 15% fee, and instead would only fork over 10%. Miles had some help pulling this off -- according to the docs ... prominent celeb accounting firm Tanner Mainstain helped him set up a shell company to deposit the siphoned cash.
