Hillary Clinton’s Career Advice: Toughen Up, Ladies

Hill's Advice

"Grow Skin Like A Rhinoceros"

Your career plans might not include New York Senator or Secretary Of State. Even so, surely you can’t deny that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knows a thing or two about successful careers. Speaking this week at New York University about her new Clinton Foundation project, “No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project,” Ms. Clinton dished out career advice worth listening to. “One of the best pieces of advice that I ever heard from anyone was Eleanor Roosevelt in the 1920s who said that women in politics or in public roles should grow skin like a rhinoceros. I think there’s some truth to that,” she said. “It’s important to learn how to take criticism seriously, but not personally. And to do that, you have to be willing to hear what others, who are your critics, are saying and to evaluate where they’re coming from.” It’s sexist and annoying that women need to be this way  more than men (and mothers in politics and public life especially), but I don’t doubt that Clinton, who has an admirable rhinoceros hide herself, is correct.

When The Moon Hits Your Eye Like A Big Pizza Pie, That’s Hillary Clinton

People who complained about the TIME magazine cover depicting Hillary Clinton’s gargantuan high heel sauntering past a tiny male rival, look what you have wrought: The New York Times Magazine has one-upped everybody in the weirdness department with Hillary-as-planet. A Times editor tweeted the intergalactic cover this morning, confirming in later tweets, yup, it’s for real.

I’m sorry, did someone not tell the Times art department this image is CREEPY AS HELL? [Twitter.com/DavidJoachim]

What Do We Think Of TIME‘s Hillary Cover?

hillary time main image

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has not yet said one way or the other whether she intends to run again for president in 2016. But that hasn’t stopped the chattering classes from dissecting every single item related to a “Hillary ’16″ run ad nauseum. The latest iteration is the TIME magazine cover this week: a coverline reading “Can Anyone Stop Hillary?” over a photo-illustration of a huge, high-heeled woman in a pantsuit stepping past a miniature man who jumps out of the way.

Bill Clinton Wants A Woman President — Hmm, Who Might He Be Referring To?

“I hope we have a woman president in my lifetime, and I think it would be a good thing for the world as well as for America. But I do not know if she’s going to run, and there is no such thing as a sure thing in politics. … If that’s what she wants to do, I will support her. But if she decides for whatever reason she doesn’t, I will support that.”

– Former President Bill Clinton spoke in China this weekend and made his wishes clear in his wife’s “will-she-or-won’t-she?” game. Because you know when he says he wants the woman president, he isn’t talking about Sarah Palin … or Kirsten Gillibrand … or Michele Bachmann … or Liz Cheney … or anyone other than his wife.

These Anti-Hillary Clinton Buttons Were Spotted At A California GOP Convention

And they are, heh, foul. The San Francisco Chronicle‘s Carla Marinucci tweeted the following image Saturday, saying, “Popular buttons at @CAGOP convention already take on @hillaryclinton #2016 in a big way… Ouch!!” As far as I’m concerned, these buttons burn no one but the Republican Party, which clearly has to stoop to lame, offensive new lows because they can’t take on Clinton in the ways that truly matter. Fail! [Huffington Post]

Bill Clinton's Ex-Mistress Gennifer Flowers Now Writes Sex Advice Column "Ask Mistress Gennifer"

Did you forget Gennifer Flowers existed? Us, too. But here she is in the UK’s Daily Mail, for some reason. In the exclusive interview with Bill Clinton’s former mistress, she claims that the president would have stayed with her had his daughter Chelsea not been born and he reportedly told Flowers that Hillary Clinton is “bisexual,” but he didn’t care, and Hillary “had eaten more pussy than he had.”  Keep reading »
