Hillary Clinton is popular in her father’s hometown, and she is especially happy, always, to spend St. Patrick’s Day there!

Hillary Clinton said she was “ready to come out of the woods” and help Americans find common ground.

Mrs Clinton’s gradual return to the public spotlight following her presidential election loss continued with a St. Patrick’s Day speech in her late father’s Pennsylvania hometown.

“I’m like a lot of my friends right now, I have a hard time watching the news,” Mrs Clinton told an Irish women’s group.

 But she urged a divided country to work together to solve problems, recalling how, as first lady, she met with female leaders working to bring peace to Northern Ireland.

“What can we do to try to bring people together and to try to find that common ground, even higher ground, sister, so that we listen to each other again and we know that we can make a difference? I’m not sure it will come out of Washington yet, but I think it can come out of Scranton. Let’s find ways to do that,” she told the Society of Irish Women.

Vital Voices, which Hillary Clinton was instrumental in founding in 1997, held its 16th Annual Global Leadership Awards event on Wednesday evening, and Hillary was there, in red and fierce, for International Women’s Day 2017. The event was held at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC.

 

Thank God for the Kennedys, the Clintons, and the Democrats in general for their support of the performing arts. We are going to have to fight for them. Certain parties think reality TV qualifies as performing arts. There may be performance there, arguably, but the artfulness is in question.

Hillary spent a few days in Massachusetts last week. She held an event at Wellesley, her alma mater, and also visited Harvard for a “Fireside Chat!”

Hillary Clinton Visits Harvard

Hillary Clinton waves at a crowd of students gathered outside Loeb House on Friday afternoon. The former Secretary of State visited Harvard’s campus to be interviewed as part of a joint Kennedy School, Law School, and Business School project.

Several dozen students listened to Hillary Clinton speak about her own college experience at Wellesley and the value of learning from peers’ experiences and perspectives at a “Fireside Chat” in Kirkland House Friday.Undergraduate members of the Institute of Politics’ Student Advisory Committee, some board members of the Harvard College Democrats, and five Kirkland students who received lottery tickets attended the chat. Jesse I. Shelburne ’18 and Sharon Yang ’18, the student president and vice president of the IOP, respectively, moderated the discussion with Clinton.

After her appearance in Kirkland House, Clinton took part in an interview later that day for the “American Secretaries of State Project: Negotiation, Diplomacy, and Statecraft,” a joint effort of the Law School, the Kennedy School, and the Business School.

It’s Fashion Week in New York, and Hillary’s personal style is having an effect on the runways.

At New York Fashion Week, pantsuits for all!

She may not have won the election, but remarkably, Hillary Clinton, pilloried for her appearance her entire public life, has become a fashion trendsetter.The 2016 presidential candidate could very well be the inspiration for New York Fashion Week’s most pervasive fall 2017 trend, the pantsuit, seen on nearly every runway so far, including Calvin Klein, Victoria Beckham and Gabriela Hearst. While the style has been a red carpet favorite of Emma Watson, Blake Lively and Evan Rachel Wood (the Westworld actress has made the look her new unofficial uniform), brands as disparate as Aussie babe fave Zimmermann, French club wear go-to Zadig & Voltaire and dresser-of-Indian-royalty Naeem Khan have also offered up pantsuit options for every occasion.Zimmermann

Former presidential candidate, Secretary of State and First Lady Hillary Clinton was greeted with cheers and a standing ovation February 15 at Broadway’s Palace Theatre where she came to see Glenn Close in Sunset Boulevard.

Clinton arrived at the theatre about three minutes before curtain, and was quickly recognized by the audience, which began cheering.

As the lights went down for the show to start, just as the audience quieted down, someone shouted “We love you, Hillary” and the crowd applauded through the beginning of the overture clearly in response to the shout-out.

Hillary Clinton was the first student to deliver a commencement address at Wellesley when she graduated in 1969. She had been chosen for the task by her classmates. When the guest speaker that year, Senator Edward Brooke of Massachusetts,  delivered remarks which she felt conflicted with the aspirations she and her class held, she departed from her prepared address and spoke from her heart – famously!

Well, she’s coming back! This time as the guest speaker at the 2017 commencement.

Hillary Rodham Clinton ’69 Will Return to Wellesley College to Deliver 2017 Commencement Address

Former Presidential Candidate, Global Champion for Women, and Iconic Leader of Our Time Selected to Speak by Class of 2017
Wellesley, Mass.—Hillary Rodham Clinton ’69 will address the members of the Wellesley College Class of 2017 and an international audience of their family and friends at Wellesley’s 139th commencement exercises on Friday, May 26, at 10:30 am. Unlike many other colleges and universities, Wellesley’s commencement speaker selection process is driven by its students.

“Secretary Clinton’s decision to come to Wellesley is profoundly inspiring to all of us at the College. As Wellesley students, we arrive here believing in a future that respects women’s potential and accomplishment, but as graduating seniors, and at this moment in history, we look to Secretary Clinton, our sister, as someone who will inspire us to make that future now,” said Casey Butler ’17, co-president of the senior class. Amal Cheema ’17, also co-president, added, “She is the best person to represent who we have become at Wellesley and who we strive to be in the world. Her tireless push for progress embodies the spirit—and the courage—we seek in breaking down barriers and shattering glass ceilings of all kinds.”
