If you received that email from Hillary, earlier this month, asking you to sign Bill Clinton’s birthday card, maybe you did notice her name at the bottom. There has been some suspense about what would happen to the foundation, to which all the Clintons are very dedicated, both in the run up to and in the wake of the 2016 campaign.

Now that the dust has settled, blueprints for the future of the foundation and the roles the Clintons will play in it are being drafted and realized as our friend Ruby Cramer outlines here.

She hasn’t returned to the Clinton Foundation in a formal capacity. But nine months after an election that left the charity smaller in size, scope, and funding, Hillary Clinton is stepping into a new supporting role — to raise money on behalf of the organization.

The fundraising plans, confirmed by foundation spokesman Craig Minassian, bring the former candidate back into a nonprofit still adjusting to new and uncertain terrain, with Bill Clinton, 71, serving in a new role of chair, and Chelsea Clinton, 37, as vice chair.

We all knew that Hillary would always have a home at and role in the foundation. Her initiatives with Too Small to Fail, No Ceilings, and Clean Cookstoves were tremendously successful and continue to change lives for the better.

If you read the Inspector Gamache books by Louise Penny, I have read all of them, you know a little about the Eastern Townships of Quebec where Hillary and Bill Clinton are vacationing with the family and close friends. Louise Penny is also staying at the resort with them. She visited with them at their Chappaqua home back in March. Bill is hoping his friend, former prime minister Jean Chrétien, will also be joining them to help him celebrate his birthday.

Here they all are out for a boat ride on Lake Massawippi.  We get our first glimpse of little Aidan.

Say what you will about the Daily Mail. You can always count on them for a wealth of pictures!

If, like Hillary Clinton, you find yourself drawn to Quebec after reading Louise Penny‘s Inspector Gamache books, you will understand why the Clinton family has decided to vacation in the Eastern Townships this summer. Hillary has touted Penny’s works, descriptive of the region and instructive regarding events in Canadian history. Most of the murder mysteries are set in the fictional village of Three Pines founded as a refuge for loyalists during the American Revolution.


The tiny village of North Hatley in Quebec’s Eastern Townships will play host to a high-profile political family from across the border starting this weekend.

Former U.S. president Bill Clinton, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, their daughter Chelsea and their two grandchildren are planning to stay at Hovey Manor, sources tell Radio-Canada.

The Clintons are expected to arrive at the exclusive resort on Sunday and stay until Aug. 19. They will be housed in one of the suites away from the main building.

To the devastation of many, especially little girls, the confetti that was installed at the ceiling of the Javits Center in Manhattan never fell on the night of November 8, 2016.  Artist Bunny Burson, who served as executive director of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities in President Bill Clinton’s administration and as part of Hillary Clinton’s Missouri Steering Committee, has tracked down that confetti and turned it into inspirational art.


Early on election night last November, artist Bunny Burson looked to New York City’s Javits Center ceiling, expecting confetti to fall to celebrate Hillary Clinton becoming the nation’s first woman president. But the confetti never fell.

Crushed by Clinton’s loss to President Donald Trump, Burson began an almost two-week journey to track down the confetti, which she thought would make great material for artwork.

She used the confetti to turn a window at Bruno David Gallery in Clayton into a massive snow globe titled “And Still I Rise.” Her purpose? To flip Clinton’s defeat into inspiration for women and girls.

It is no secret that until the summer of  2015, Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump were friends. They are no longer so close. Actress and playwright, Melissa Rauch put her imagination to work on what it might have been like when Chelsea and Ivanka did lunch. The result is a two-character satirical play that will run for one night only to benefit Planned Parenthood.  Zosia Mamet will join Rauch for what is sure to be the hottest ticket in town this summer.

Zosia Mamet & Melissa Rauch To Play Chelsea Clinton & Ivanka Trump

We’ve seen a lot of satirical takes on the families of both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton since the election madness went into full force in 2016, but nothing has quite excited us like this latest parody announcement.

Zosia Mamet and Melissa Rauch are teaming up to put on a comedic event in New York City where they’ll assume the roles of Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton, respectively, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The event, titled The Secret Lunches of Chelsea & Ivanka, will be held for one night only at Joe’s Pub on July 24 and will directly benefit Planned Parenthood. Because the only thing better than watching badass babes performing together is knowing that the event helps to provide millions of women with access to reproductive health services.

If you’ve seen a Broadway show in the last six months or so, there’s a significant chance you saw a surprise double bill: the play or musical you paid for and a celebrity cameo by Hillary Clinton, smiling politely as the audience gave her another standing ovation. On Thursday, the former Democratic nominee, her husband Bill, and her daughter Chelsea attended a performance of Come From Away, a musical about the roughly 7,000 air travelers grounded in Gander, Newfoundland, after planes were rerouted following the aerial attacks on 9/11. Christopher Ashley took home a Tony for Best Direction for the production earlier this month.

The musical’s co-writer David Hein later praised the Clintons, who posed for photos with the cast, on Facebook. Hein wrote in part, “So many lines in the show resonated differently — especially the scene where passengers try to vote for a different destination and are told, “this is not a democracy.” Afterwards onstage, they were so gracious, taking pictures and speaking to each of us. President Clinton told Caesar one of his 9/11 stories, when he met a Muslim man who was afraid his countrymen would never trust him again. We and Sharon got to introduce our daughters to Chelsea. And Hilary told us, ‘this is a show that the world needs now.’ So honoured to have this story of Newfoundland kindness recognized and celebrated by them.”

HUDSON — Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton made a stop in Hudson on Monday.

Clinton said she was traveling north with her family and they decided to stop for lunch at Grazin’ Diner, at 717 Warren St.

“We were with my daughter and her family and we wanted to stop here,” Clinton said. “The french fries were really dangerous, but they were delicious and we ate too many of them.”
