Hillary Clinton

Today in “two names I didn’t expect to see in the same headline”: Hillary Rodham Clinton and Amelia Earhart. It’s true, though: the Secretary of State met with the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery on Tuesday to show support to their efforts. The group, composed of scientists and historians, is launching a new search for Earhart’s plane off the Pacific island nation of Kiribati, based on the hypothesis that Earhart’s aircraft actually landed on the island, and the pilot and her navigator may have been able to survive for days or weeks after they vanished off the radar on July 2, 1937. While Clinton won’t be participating in the actual search, her department said that “lauding Earhart’s legacy as a pioneer for women and a model of American courage” is an important mission in itself.
