Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

GOP ‘incapable of competing if Hillary Clinton runs in 2016’, says Newt Gingrich

Washington - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has brushed off the idea of running for the White House bid in 2016, but if she were to run, at least one prominent Republican thinks his party would be completely outmatched.

"The Republican party is incapable of competing at that level," Newt Gingrich said during an appearance on NBC's "Meet The Press."

"First of all, she's very formidable as a person," the Huffington Post quoted him, as saying.

"She's a very competent person. She's married to the most popular Democrat in the country; they both think [it] would be good for her to be president. It makes it virtually impossible to stop her for the nomination," he added.

“In addition to having Bill Clinton's support, Hillary Clinton would also have the backing of President Barack Obama, who will still be a "relatively popular president," Gingrich added.

"Trying to win that will be truly the Super Bowl," he said.
