Quotable: Hillary Clinton Talks Possible Presidential Run … And Her “Hair Strategy For 2016″
“I think [encouragement to become the first female president] reflects a desire on the part of a lot of Americans, not just women, that we have unfinished business. I’m certainly in the camp that says we need to break down that highest, hardest glass ceiling in American politics. To have a woman President is something I would love to see happen, but I’ll just have to make my own decision about what I think is right for me.”
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is on the cover of People magazine this week, which methinks is proof enough that she may have made her own decision already. (Also? Her forthcoming memoir is called Hard Choices, which seems like a deliberately tough-sounding title to me.) But of course, then People had to go and ask her about the hard-nosed, pressing matter of her hair:
Do you have a hair strategy for 2016?
“I’m at an age where I can pretty much do what I want: Here I am, whether you like my hair or not.”
If Clinton does run for President 2016 (with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand as VP, please?), this would be the first dumb question (of many, I expect) that a dude politician would never be asked.
