Hillary Clinton Fractures Elbow, What Would You Write On Her Cast?

As it turns out, Hillary Clinton is not a robot. You see, robots don’t break bones. They don’t even have bones. They have gears.

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.

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

We all know sexism is alive and well in America.

And yes, much of the media’s coverage of Hillary Clinton’s campaign was sexist too—and I…
