Quotable: Hillary Clinton Talks Possible Presidential Run … And Her “Hair Strategy For 2016″

hillary clinton people

“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: Keep reading »

Hillary 2016, Here’s Your Campaign Song

In the event that Hillary Clinton actually declares that she’s running for President in 2016, she should obviously choose “Timber” by Pitbull as her campaign theme song. But this expertly edited Hillary version, not the Ke$ha one. (Click the icon above for sound.) [Vine]

Monica Lewinsky Opens Up To Vanity Fair About Slut-Shaming, Humilation And … Beyoncé

You only need to look at the front page of The New York Times to find out what Bill and Hillary Clinton accomplish on a daily basis. But what about someone who used to be in the headlines every single day, followed by years of near-silence?

For the first time ever, Monica Lewinsky is opening up in Vanity Fair about her affair with then-President Clinton. She’s written openly about the humiliation she suffered from her involvement in the very first sex scandal of the Internet Age, her struggles with suicidal thoughts, and her disappointment in Hillary Clinton’s slut-shaming attitude towards her. The 40-year-old Lewinsky sounds poised, mature and in control of her own narrative — sadly, perhaps, for the first time. Keep reading »

A Brief History Of Hillary Clinton Lesbian Rumors

Conservative shock jock Glenn Beck is very angry about a lot of things. One in particular? Politicians who opposed marriage equality before they supported it — not because Beck himself actually cares about marriage equality, mind you — he just thinks these politicians are hypocrites. And the biggest hypocrite of them all is Hillary Clinton, of whom Beck said:

“I’m telling you, Hillary Clinton will be having sex with a woman on the White House desk if it becomes popular. “

To what do we owe this sort of graphic visual image? Beck wasn’t relying on his own tawdry imagination, but instead a decades-old rumor from political consultant Dick Morris. The disgraced Morris started as a friend of the Clintons and after a falling-out (including a prostitution scandal), he is now one of the Clintons’ biggest adversaries. Morris is responsible for pretty much flat-out saying that Hillary Clinton is a lesbian, which, as a former close friend, people assumed he would know.

I don’t care what sexual orientation Hillary Clinton is (though I would love an LGBT president in the future for sure). I find it pretty depressing that one rumor has gotten loads of replay over the years, resurfacing almost always in ultra-right-wing media but also occasionally in liberal LGBTQ ones. I did a little search, digging into only the last decade, and came up with quite a bit of history for the Hillary Clinton lesbian rumors…
