Hillary Clinton TIME cover

“I think I was struck by my early travels, where one of the most common questions I kept being asked, especially in the audience of young people at universities and elsewhere, is: How could you work with President Obama? You ran against him. Because still in democracies, even ones that we think of as fairly mature, that was just a totally bizarre idea that two people who were political foes could ever end up working together. … And my answer always was: Yes, I mean, we ran hard against each other. He tried to beat me, I tried to beat him. But he won, then he asked me to work for him. And I said yes because we both love our country. So I think that that message resonated with a lot of people and, again, I would stress particularly young people.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on working alongside her former opponent, Barack Obama, in Washington. This quote is just one tidbit of the Q&A — mostly about foreign policy — that Hillary did with TIME‘s editor-in-chief. As I read their conversation, I was blown away by her intelligence and intellect. I highly, highly recommend you read it, too!  [TIME] Keep reading »

Jennifer Garner Channels Hillary Clinton In “Butter”

Watch Video

I thought “Butter” was just a movie about Jennifer Garner as a competitive butter sculptor. It turns out, the film is a metaphor for the entire 2008 election. Jennifer plays a woman pitted against a young African-American girl in a butter sculpting competition, sure that they’ll win the first place prize she believes she deserves. But when the young upstart impresses the judges, Jennifer’s character loses it — and you can watch her freak out in this new clip.

Personally I think her crazy-eyed look, pin-straight hair and power pumps are more evocative of Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann. And, no lie, “I’m sorry that I was born white and tall and pretty” sounds like something one of them would actually say.  [Cinema Blend]

Hillary Clinton On Politics & The Double Standard For Women

“I’m not going to mislead anybody. Politics is really hard. And it is harder for women. There’s a double standard, and you can’t complain about it. You just have to accept it, and be smart enough to navigate it. And you have to have a pretty tough skin. To paraphrase a favorite quote from Eleanor Roosevelt: If a woman wants to be in politics, she has to have the skin of a rhinoceros. Most men who go into politics just think they’re great. They believe they can do anything. Most young women, not only in politics but in most areas, are more cautious and more likely to say, ‘Could I really do this? Am I good enough?’ I was talking to a friend and very successful businessman the other day, and he said, ‘The thing that still annoys me more than anything is that I see all these young women who are so much more capable than they allow themselves to believe. And I see so many young men who are so much less capable but who believe they are God’s gift to the world.’ I would just say to women: Try it! Put your foot in the pond and see if you want to swim.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a Glamour reporter along while traveling in Africa and trying to empower women through the African Women’s Entrepreneurship Program. I admire Clinton for what she’s accomplished and for her realistic outlook on how women should get ahead. Here, she is echoing Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, who implored young women to think they’re as awesome as young men do. You’re God’s gift to the world, too, ladies! [Glamour] Keep reading »

Morning Quickies: Tim Gunn Thinks Hillary Clinton Is “Confused About Her Gender”

 

  • Tim Gunn thinks Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is “confused about her gender.” The claws came out when Gunn went on “Lopez Tonight” and dissed Clinton’s “big, baggy menswear tailored pantsuits. No, I’m really serious. [They're] unflattering.” Wow. Inappropriate. She’s pushing 70 and works in government — what exactly do you want from her? [Celebitchy]
  • Lady Gaga is co-hosting “The View” on August 1. Consider us there. [Gossip Cop]
  • A heavily pregnant Jessica Alba and sex guru Sue Johanson shared “The Tonight Show” couch and Alba took the opportunity to ask about pregnancy sex. “As someone who’s in the later stage of pregnancy, is there any way to harm the baby during intercourse?” She asked. “That baby is in there and that baby ain’t going nowhere until it’s ready,” Johanson said. “That uterus wall is just like that.” Good to know.

Coming Soon: A Hilary Clinton Porn Spoof?

No, no, no, no, no. The other week, we introduced you to Sammie Spades, the porn star who has been in such hits as “White Bubble Butts #4m” and who, back in the day, was an intern in Hillary Clinton‘s Buffalo office. Sammie was lucky enough to snap a photo of herself with Hill that fateful summer of 2006. But now, the adult film star is leveraging the experience for evil. According to TMZ, Sammie is working on a new XXX spoof in which she’ll get to know her former boss in the Biblical sense. No, like really. Here is a photo of Sammie casting potential Hillary stand-ins for the flick. Keep reading »
