We don’t know whether she took ‘the bridge’ or ‘the tunnel,’ but she arrived in Bergen County after taping interviews with Charlie Rose today.
Hillary was in Ridgewood, New Jersey for a signing at Bookends on East Ridgewood Avenue. There was a time when this was Nixon country and Pat and Richard Nixon were familiar figures in this town, but today it was all about Hillary. An enormous, enthusiastic crowd welcomed her with cheers and applause.
They came from far exits on the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike as well as from points west on 80 and 78. They brought beach chairs and blankets to sit on giving the event a touch of Jersey shore flavor. (The actual Jersey shore – not the TV show).
I told her I am Still4Hill and have been blogging about her work since 2008. She said, “I know! I LOVE it!” I thanked her for everything she has done and continues to do, and she thanked me for what I do. I also thanked her for coming to NJ since I could not make it to Chappaqua.
Look for Hillary with Charlie Rose tonight on PBS at 11:30 EDT.
Contrary to one of his predictions, Hillary Clinton did not announce a campaign for the presidency on The Daily Show last night. In opposition to another of his forecasts, Jon Stewart’s career as a ‘journalist’ is not likely to be in any peril whatsoever. Having the most popular female statesperson in the country as a guest was an enormous coup.
To make the episode even more ground-breaking, it was Hillary’s first appearance in an extended TV interview situation with a live audience in attendance since accepting the post of secretary of state in 2008. (The Barbara Walters finale on The View excepted – that was more of a drop-in and was more about Barbara – or it was supposed to be – you know how Barbara is.)
Since the release of her memoir of her tenure as secretary of state, Hard Choices, on June 10, she has sat for a series of media interviews – all in quiet, sedate settings where she conversed one-on-one with such media luminaries as Diane Sawyer, Cynthia McFadden, and Jane Pauley.
This was different as anyone familiar with The Daily Show might have expected.
For the first time in years, Hillary was before a live audience on tele-display, not at an award ceremony or formal speaking engagement on C-SPAN (thankful as we are for those archives) but across the desk from a witty talk-show host who had interviewed her in the past and knew his subject well enough to ask the right and light questions to get the pithy and quick responses so typical of Hillary’s great wit.
Hillary entered to a huge welcome from the audience which she returned in her signature fashion. Ostensibly there to promote her heavy tome, within moments she weathered Stewart’s first dart. “Nobody cares [about the book]. They want to know if you’re running for president.” The party was on and there was no lack of humor or lapse in wit on either side.
It was a refreshing, and long overdue appearance on TV talk show. Hillary was delightful and Jon was his comedic self. Great fun!
NEW YORK (AP) – Hillary Rodham Clinton gave Jon Stewart no hints about whether she will run for president, but acknowledged during Tuesday’s taping of “The Daily Show” that the speculation surrounding her possible candidacy has become “a cottage industry.”
Stewart introduced Clinton by saying, “She’s here solely for one reason: to publicly and definitively declare her candidacy for president of the United States … I think.”
An ‘interview’ in Vanity Fairfeatures Hillary using bridge and tunnel metaphors.
In fact Hillary will literally be crossing a few bridges to make some neighborly visits to New Jersey, Connecticut, and a newly announced stop in beautiful upstate Saratoga Springs for some book signings.

@U.S. Senate: Time to ratify LOST!
"... ratify the Law of the Sea Convention, which has provided the international framework for exploring these new opportunities in the Arctic. We abide by the international law that undergirds the convention, but we think the United States should be a member, because the convention sets down the rules of the road that protect freedom of navigation, provide maritime security, serve the interests of every nation that relies on sea lanes for commerce and trade, and also sets the framework for exploration for the natural resources that may be present in the Arctic." -HRC, 06-03-12, Tromso Norway
