As if you needed another reason to love former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton!
Clinton just released a PSA for the Human Rights Campaign in which she comes out in full support of marriage equality for lesbians and gays:
“LGBT Americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones. And they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. That includes marriage. That’s why I support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. I support it personally and as a matter of policy and law, embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for LGBT Americans and all Americans.” Keep reading »
Friday afternoon wasn’t just any old Friday afternoon: it was also Hillary Clinton’s last day of her four-year-long tenure as Secretary of State. Her successor, Senator John Kerry, was sworn in on Friday in a private ceremony and may do just as well a job as Hill did. But he certainly won’t give us any GIFs where he gets his freak on bumping and grinding,
So, what do we think Hillary Clinton is going to do with all her free time now? Text Meryl? Nag Bill about his diet? Plot world domination? [Photo: Getty]
Not only is Hillary Clinton creating a frenzy of 2016 election speculation and my favorite internet memes, but she’s also brought blood clots into the media spotlight. While the buzz has gone down, and you rarely hear commentators on CNN analyzing deep leg thrombosis anymore, the incident stuck with me. I, too, have blood clots.
In April of 2012, an unusual set of symptoms put my dear Bubbe, a retired oncology nurse, into a strange panic. She demanded daily, “Go see a doctor!”, as she was increasingly worried about my high fever, swollen glands and other symptoms that were unbeknownst to me as signs of lymphoma.
I, of course, remained completely ignorant of what my illness could be, only calling the doctor to avoid incessant nudging that had now spread to my mother. You’ll do anything promptly at the urging of two Jewish women.
It was only when my doctor told my grandmother it was not what she feared that I finally realized what all the fuss was about. I burst into tears and exhaled a sigh of relief all in the span of about five minutes in the waiting room, before I was strapped in for a series of precautionary blood tests. Keep reading »
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s been in the news a bunch lately, so it makes sense that bloggers from all genres would want to capitalize off her name recognition. But the guys over at Homesessive have taken it to a new level of absurdity. They’ve fashioned a homewares slideshow with Hillary as its inspiration. Because, “with all of her travels, Hillary undoubtedly decorates her home with items from all over the globe,” reads the copy accompanying an image of lovely spinning globes you could procure for your sitting room or whatever. And because your love for H-Dawg knows no bounds, you can buy a couch in some of Hillary’s signature suit colors. What might they be? “Hillary seems to mostly sport a well tailored suit in solid colors like blue, black and white. [A] black suit with white piping is a prime example of Hillary’s refined color palette.”
Might this start a trend? Will we be seeing a Tim Geithner room makeover? A Thomas Vilsack garden renovation? Yeah, didn’t think so. [Homesessive]
