In one of his final appearances on the Senate floor, Senator John McCain urged his colleagues on both sides of the aisle to get back to regular order. Hillary Clinton echoed that imperative on The Rachel Maddow Show last night. Appearing on the anniversary of the release of her book, What Happened, and upon the release of the paperback edition with a new afterword (also published in The Atlantic), Hillary addressed, among other topics, the Kavanaugh confirmation logjam, the Special Counsel probe, the Manafort deal, and the ongoing Russian influence not only in our elections but in our very interactions.

Rachel began the interview quoting from the piece that ran in The Atlantic, and asked Hillary why she is afraid of losing our country. Hillary responded saying that putting aside ideological concerns we have to defend our democracy. Degrading the rule of law, de-legitimizing elections, attacking truth and reason, undermining our unity … is a crisis. She said the authoritarian tendencies, left unchecked could result in the erosion of our institutions to an extent that we have never imagined here. We are not there yet, she contends, but that is because there is an election. “We need a new Congress, and we need a new Republican party.”

With a new Congress, Hillary thinks we need an agenda broader than one of impeachment. She listed policy changes already made, and said those need to be addressed. If people do not go out and vote, she thinks we will see more dismantling of institutions.

She believes that she was clearly a part of the puzzle where Russian interference was concerned in 2016, but she thinks they are playing a longer game of undermining democracy here and globally.  She said, “Foreign money, foreign interference in our elections, I don’t care if it’s from the right, the left, the center, up, down; I don’t care where it’s from. It’s wrong. It’s illegal,and the American people deserve to know if it happened so we can try to prevent it.”¹

Rachel replayed a clip from a year ago where Hillary said we have to depend on those around Trump to be our first line of defense against him doing something that might have serious repercussions. The Times op-ed of September 5 and Bob Woodward’s Fear appear to show that remark to have been predictive.

Her prediction now is that after the election Trump will wholesale fire people. She said he is close to being uncontrollable. She is hoping people will see that we need checks and balances and will vote accordingly. While she has not heard any specifics of invocation of the 25th Amendment, she thinks there are private discussions in the White House, and that people are worried.

It was a broad, extensive interview and thought-provoking. Hillary has warned us in the past. Once again she is sounding the alarms. Yes, we must get out the vote. But we must do more. We need to hold the government accountable. First, we must hold the line. Then, we must repair the damage. That demands advocacy. It is going to take more than a village. It is going to take the whole country.

¹Please bear this comment in mind and take it very seriously to heart if you are one of those who defends a “Hillary supporter” whom you suspect or know not to be American but who insists upon not only impersonating an American but also insists upon telling Americans how to think and how to vote. Proxies, trolls, sock puppets, and bots take every side. There is a purpose to this alleged support. Do not be duped.

This is now officially my favorite among her gowns. Gorgeous!

Hillary Clinton Was A Breath of Fresh Air at Ralph Lauren’s 50th Anniversary Show
In an ice blue gown from the legendary designer, the stateswoman shined bright.

Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary show brought out the all biggest and brightest stars. With Oprah, Blake Lively, Anne Hathaway, Pierce Brosnan, and countless others mulling around Central Park, one would think the evening’s best dressed would be of Hollywood royalty—not so! All were eclipsed by the presence of longtime Lauren fan, Hillary Clinton who arrived at the black tie dinner in an ice blue gown and sapphire earrings, an understated look befitting a seasoned stateswoman.

Hillary Clinton will headline a fundraiser for five first-time women candidates next week, signaling an uptick in political activity from the former Democratic presidential nominee ahead of this year’s midterm elections.

The New York City fundraiser, slated for Sept. 12, will benefit five women viewed as some of the most compelling congressional candidates in competitive races this fall: Lauren Underwood of Illinois, Gina Ortiz Jones of Texas, Liuba Grechen Shirley of New York, Haley Stevens of Michigan, and Xochitl Torres Small of New Mexico.

Arena PAC will host the event, according to a copy of the invitation. The group provides coaching and advice to candidates running for office for the first time. The fundraiser, advertised with Clinton as its “special guest,” will be held at the home of fashion executive Lauren Santo Domingo, a New York donor who most recently hosted an event on behalf of California Sen. Kamala Harris, a potential 2020 presidential candidate.

Hillary knew Mario Cuomo and admired him. She often quoted him on the campaign trail, so it is no surprise that she will take part in this event honoring his memory.

ALBANY — When Gov. Cuomo opens the eastbound span of the new Tappan Zee Bridge — now named after his father — on Friday, he’ll get help from fellow Westchester County resident Hillary Clinton.

“Secretary Clinton is a long time friend of the Cuomo family and will be on hand for festivities,” a source said. “She is expected to speak at the event that both celebrates the opening of the bridge that connects Westchester and Rockland Counties and is one of the nation’s largest infrastructure projects in the last 20 years.”

The new bridge will be named the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge. Some have called the old Tappan Zee name to be tacked on as well, but Cuomo said a new bridge should get a new name.

His late father served three terms as governor.

We know Hillary Clinton likes the show. Now she will have a cameo role on it along with other former secretaries of state.


Hillary Clinton is set to play herself on the fifth season premiere of the drama series Madam Secretary this fall, CBS announced on Tuesday. In the episode, which will air on Sunday, October 7th, the show’s protagonist Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) will turn to Clinton and two other former secretaries of state, Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell, to “ask their advice on how to respond to a delicate situation,” a press release stated. The scenes were filmed earlier this month during the first week of production for the show’s fifth season. Earlier this year, Clinton made a cameo appearance during the Grammy Awards in which she read aloud from Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury book.
