Zahra Rahnavard: Iran’s New First Lady (We Hope)

Watch out (or celebrate), Iran, Zahra Rahnavard may be your next Hillary Clinton. She’s an artist, a politician, and also the fire behind husband Mir-Hossein Mousavi’s presidential campaign. From what I’ve seen, it appears she might even have more followers than he does — crowds of women (and men) roar when she shows up to…

Is Hillary Clinton Allowed To Cry In Peace Now?

Hillary Clinton was visibly shook up while honoring a 25-year-old fallen diplomat, Brian Adkins, at a State Department ceremony last Friday.

Hooray For Hillary!: Clinton Nominated For Secretary Of State

Earlier today, President-elect Barack Obama announced his nomination of Sen. Hillary Clinton for the position of Secretary of State. Sadly, the first thing I thought when she stepped up to the podium was that someone should have lowered the microphones because they blocked her face. The second thing I thought was that it’…

Hillary Clinton The Bitch?

Hillary Clinton laid pretty low following her withdrawal from the Presidential campaign back in June, although her historic run was somewhat overshadowed in the last leg of the race by Sarah Palin’s vice presidential bid.

The Sexism Card: Is Sarah Palin Really A Victim Or Is She Bluffing?

We all know sexism is alive and well in America. Hollywood’s seemingly endless celebration of the chubby, schlubby, slacker dude is sexist as hell, given that chubby, schlubby, slacker girls get nowhere in Tinseltown, least of all the big screen. And yes, much of the media’s coverage of Hillary Clinton’s campaign was sexist too—and I…

Soundtrack To The DNC: Hillary Clinton’s Dream Playlist

Politicians aren’t exactly known for having musical taste, but you would expect the people who throw big events like, I dunno, the Democratic National Convention, would do a better job of picking cool music to introduce some of their most important speakers. That’s why it struck me as an odd choice to have Hillary Clinto…

Presidential Candidates’ Spouses Participate In Cookie Bake-Off

Every year, Family Circle magazine has a cookie-off among the potential first spouses’ recipes, and the vote often goes the same way as general election. In 2004, Teresa Heinz Kerry’s pumpkin spice cookies lost to Laura Bush’s oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies; in 2000, Laura’s Texas Governor’s Mansion Cowboy cookies beat Tipper Gore’s ginger snaps; and…

The Daily Squeeze: Harvard Hates Harry Potter, Nudism, Women Voters, And Teen Sex On The Rise

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.

The Presidential (Fashion) Race

Last week, fashion writer Hadley Freeman critiqued Hillary Clinton’s wardrobe. This week, she takes on the male presidential candidates’ sartorial choices. There aren’t as many options for men, but the cut of a suit can suggest a lot.
