What Bill and Hillary Clinton did during the Democratic debate

While presidential hopefuls faced off in the fourth Democratic debate, Bill and Hillary Clinton took in a Broadway show.

On Tuesday, Bill, 73, and Hillary, 71, were spotted at hot new mentalist act “Derren Brown: Secret” at the Cort Theatre.

The power couple — who just celebrated their 44th wedding anniversary — was joined by daughter Chelsea, her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, Diane von Furstenberg and Barry Diller.

Hillary Clinton honored in hometown “Trailblazing Women of Park Ridge” event

PARK RIDGE, Ill. — Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton returned home to Park Ridge Friday, to view a documentary of her life and talk with local students.

A packed house of elementary, middle, and high school students joined Clinton at the Pickwick Theatre to preview the Park Ridge Historical Society’s exhibit, the “Trailblazing Women of Park Ridge.” The exhibit is set to open in the spring of 2020, and will honor Clinton along with three other women.

A new documentary chronicling Clinton’s experiences in Park Ridge also premiered at the event.

Onward Together!

Last month, I joined our friends at the Albert Shanker Institute and the American Federation of Teachers for a conference on the ways we can protect and defend American democracy. In my opening remarks, I spoke about the risks that voter suppression, fake news, and a lack of election security pose to our country’s very foundation.

The founders of four Onward Together partner and grantee organizations also joined the conference as panelists that day: Eric Holder of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, Andrew Gillum of Forward Florida, Leah Greenberg of Indivisible, and María Teresa Kumar of Voto Latino.

Watch what we had to say here.

Meanwhile, it’s a busy time for all of the groups we work with. Our friends at Run for Something Action Fund have just launched WhereCanIRun.org, an all-new site that helps potential candidates decide where, how, and when to run for office. Dream Big Nevada, one of our grantee organizations, is raising money to cover DACA renewal fees for eligible young people — and you can contribute today.

As always, I’m grateful to have you on this team.

Onward!

Hillary

 

 

 

 

 

 


At the Eleanor Roosevelt Memorial in Manhattan, Hillary Rodham Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, look upon a 20th-century giant. “I think she was one of the greatest Americans in our history,” Hillary told “Sunday Morning” host Jane Pauley.

“She is a kind of transcendent figure over generations because of all that she did in her life,” Chelsea said.

Hillary added, “I just find that depiction of her to be as I imagine her – thoughtfully listening, taking it all in.”

And at the New York Historical Society, they handled a racquet from the hands of tennis legend Billie Jean King. And they examined a century-old banner from the Women’s Suffrage Movement. “I have one of these at my home,” Hillary said. “I have it over the fireplace; I look at it every day.”

The mementos breathe life into a collection of stories called “The Book of Gutsy Women,” co-authored by mother and daughter, and published by CBS’ Simon & Schuster.
