As if we need any more reason to believe that our President is as hip as they come: Obama’s throwing a party in his hometown, and all the biggest fashion folks are invited. Back in February, the POTUS introduced Runway To Win, a fundraising effort featuring reasonably priced Barack-branded clothing and accessories with proceeds going towards his re-election campaign, and now his people have announced a star-studded event for June 12. The show, hosted by Anna Wintour and Iman, will honor the unveiling of the Runway To Win pop-up shop and will feature looks by Prabal Gurung, Marc Jacobs, Narciso Rodriguez, Alexander Wang, and more (you can check out, and purchase, all of the offerings at the Runway To Win website). I’m kind of clueless about politics, but I do know a thing or two about fashion, and it looks like Obama does, too. Naturally, that has nothing to do with his Presidency, but I know it definitely piques my interest in the upcoming election. [Huffington Post]

Today’s Lady News: Hillary Clinton Probably Won’t Ever Be President

  • Speaking on a Thai television show, Hillary Clinton said she isn’t thinking about the 2012 election and is “100 percent focused” on her Secretary of State gig. “I doubt very much that anything like that will ever be part of my life,” she said. [Huffington Post]
  • After critics balked at the idea of using taxpayer money for abortions under Obama’s proposed health care bill, politicians are working on an amendment with a “compromise” in the U.S. House version of the bill. [WSJ] — We’re guessing this “compromise” will mean states can ix-nay the unding-fay?
  • NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he “will look into” allegations that Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback, “Big Ben” Ben Roethlisberger, sexually assaulted a former casino employee in Nevada last year. The woman says Big Ben asked her to come up to his hotel room to fix his TV, where he fondled her breasts and pushed her on the bed. She is seeking half a million dollars in damages. [NY Daily News]

Dealbreaker: He Voted For The Wrong Guy

I like to think of myself as a fair, open-minded individual. I have my opinions, sure, but I certainly don’t begrudge anyone for holding a different set of views than I do. In the past, I’ve dated plenty of guys with whom I don’t always agree, like the guy who counted Phil Collins as a personal hero, or the dude who thought yellow was “his color,” and then there was the guy who wouldn’t drink Belgian beer because he said it was “un-American.” Un-American! He had a refrigerator full of Budweiser that I overlooked because that’s just the kind of flexible, open-minded person I am. Keep reading »

Slideshow: All The Presidential Candidates’ Accessories

Because Barack Obama and John McCain are stuck in suits most of the time, the only chance we have to see their style is in the accessories. Now, we think some of the lapel pins that the candidates and their wives have been wearing are a little much — we’re in a recession, people, you shouldn’t be wearing so many diamonds, even if they are fake! Michelle Obama has completely nailed her accessories. Sarah Palin, on the other hand, has gone overboard. Keep reading »

Justin Timberlake Rocks The Voting Box

Justin Timberlake has put his “Dick In A Box,” but now he wants to stuff something else in there: a ballot! In this remix of his classic song for “Saturday Night Live”, JT rocks the vote! {Although, maybe not everyone can get down to change.) Jessica Biel is beautiful, but she makes for a bad fly girl. He should have asked Barack to be his back up dancer! [World of Wonder]

Where Women Rule

We’ve all wondered: What if women ruled the world? While it may seem far fetched, we’ve already got a town — McLean, Texas. It’s got one stoplight and a whole lot of unstoppable women. Since 2007, the mayor, her five aldermen, the post office master, the justice of the peace, school principal, the bank, nursing home, and grocery store managers, are all large and in charge ladies. Even their staunchest of critics, aka their husbands, can’t help but notice the positive changes around their town. Now, with Hillary Clinton in the presidential race, they’re even thinking nationally. While Bill Reeves, local and spouse of Alderman Lynn Reeves, wouldn’t vote for one lady alone, he said if Clinton picked an all female cabinet like they have in McLean, he’d vote for her. “They’d do no worse, and there’s a chance of it being much better.” Now that’s girl power!

What Does Fred Thompson Have Against Women?

We’re not political analysts or anything, but we’re going to take a wild guess and say that Republican Presidential Candidate Fred Thompson just lost a whole lot of potential votes. On Wednesday in Iowa, he said, “There is no woman on the horizon that ought to be president next year, let’s all agree on that.” Denouncing one woman would have been understandable – Hillary is the competition, after all, and sometimes you need to badmouth your opponents. But he didn’t even mention Hillary! Sure, she’s the only female with a fighting chance, but he kind of makes it seem like no woman will win, not next year, not ever. Fred, dear, it’s never wise to put down the group that makes up more than half of the U.S. electorate. [KGAN] Keep reading »
