Hillary and I mourn the loss of our friend Aretha Franklin, one of America’s greatest national treasures. For more than 50 years, she stirred our souls. She was elegant, graceful, and utterly uncompromising in her artistry. Aretha’s first music school was the church and her performances were powered by what she learned there. I’ll always be grateful for her kindness and support, including her performances at both my inaugural celebrations, and for the chance to be there for what sadly turned out to be her final performance last November at a benefit supporting the fight against HIV/AIDS. She will forever be the Queen of Soul and so much more to all who knew her personally and through her music. Our hearts go out to her family and her countless fans.

Later this month, our family will celebrate Bill’s 72nd birthday with our grandchildren, plenty of cake, and yes, balloons!

I’m asking you to help us mark this occasion by signing his birthday card and supporting the wonderful work he and Chelsea are doing through the Clinton Foundation.

From the time we met as law students at Yale, I’ve always loved and admired Bill’s desire to help others. Since he left office, Bill has continued his legacy of public service by focusing tirelessly on finding new and innovative ways to improve the lives of people across the country and around the world.

For the past 17 years, the Clinton Foundation has launched groundbreaking programs to create economic opportunity, improve public health, and inspire civic engagement. I’m incredibly proud to say that, because of the Foundation’s work and partnerships:

  • More than 900,000 children’s books have been distributed to underserved families across the United States – helping more children prepare for success in school.
  • Roughly 150,000 pounds of medical aid supplies were airlifted to Puerto Rico with support from the Clinton Foundation in the wake of the devastating 2017 hurricane season – and the Foundation created a CGI Action Network with businesses, nonprofits, and advocates who are committed to building a more resilient future for the people of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and across the Caribbean region.

I can’t think of a more meaningful birthday present for Bill than signing his birthday card and making a contribution to the Clinton Foundation that directly supports these efforts. Whether you’re a supporter or a partner who helps the Foundation conduct their work in the U.S. and around the world – you’re working every day to change lives, together.

With the support of people like you, there’s no limit to what the Foundation can achieve.

In honor of my husband’s birthday, please consider signing his birthday card and donating to the Foundation. Let’s continue to do everything we can to change the world today and forge a brighter tomorrow.

Bill, Chelsea, and I can’t thank you enough.

So strange that these are the demeanors of folks supporting Donald Trump at one of his rallies when he is the installed president presumably making all their dreams come true. Why are they so angry? They won, right? Shouldn’t they be happy?

The other question is: Why is Trump having rallies? There’s this N-word that has been floating around – not the one you think.

Whereas here is what the 22nd evening of protest at the Kremlin Annex in Moscow-on-the-Potomac looked like last night.

Rosie O’Donnell brought 55 Broadway performers with her to sing.

I should point out that these artists did this on the one night a week that they have off. Broadway shows do not run on Mondays because at least one weekend day and also on Wednesdays they do both a matinee and an evening performance. So they did this on their only night off. They also said they would be back on another Monday. Thank you! Profusely!

The other day, Brassy Rebel said in a comment that we are in the Upside Down. Protesters are partying nightly having a great time. Rally-goers on the prevailing side appear miserable and angry. So what’s up? And what’s down?

Can’t get to Moscow-on-the-Potomac for the protests? That’s OK. These nice folks will put your name on the Kremlin Annex Sign! Easy as one-two-three! Then you are represented. If you do get to visit, you can highlight your name on the sign.

Tune in tonight! It’s Robert Mueller’s birthday. There will be bagpipes! I hope there will also be drums!

I don’t know why I waited so long to post about this. I guess I thought people would know, but I discovered last night that a lot of people did not.  Also, it is not about Hillary. That’s OK. I think she has been there with us from the first night in spirit. It’s a happy, optimistic, inclusive spirit.  An American one.

This would put Hillary in the running for a Golden Globe and an Emmy!

Hillary Clinton is bringing her passion for women’s rights to television. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the woman we wish were president will make her executive producing debut with a TV adaptation of Elaine Weiss’ “The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote.” Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television has optioned the rights to the non-fiction book and, alongside Clinton, will develop it as a limited series or TV movie.

Published this March, “The Woman’s Hour” centers on the 1920 ratification of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote, as well as the activists who fought for it. “The book celebrates those who changed history and laid the foundation for the civil rights movement that came decades later,” THR details.


“At the heart of democracy lies the ballot box, and Elaine Weiss’ unforgettable book tells the story of the female leaders who — in the face of towering economic, racial, and political opposition — fought for and won American women’s right to vote,” Clinton said. “Unfolding over six weeks in the summer of 1920, ‘The Woman’s Hour’ is both a page-turning drama and an inspiration for everyone, young and old, male and female, in these perilous times. So much could have gone wrong, but these American women would not take no for an answer: their triumph is our legacy to guard and emulate.” She added, “I am thrilled to be working with Elaine, Steven, and everyone at Amblin Television on bringing this important project to audiences everywhere.”

I know not everyone follows Hillary Clinton around like I do, but let’s get a few things straight. She has not been in hiding anywhere. She did not suddenly swoop in and “step up” her involvement in the upcoming midterms. She is not “back” from anywhere. She was never gone.

That Onward Together conference call on Monday was a review of a year of hard work. Those donations were made over the course of a year. This meme of Hillary hiding in the Chappaqua woods and abruptly bursting forth with endorsements and donations is bogus. She has been hard at work all along.

I will not link to any articles or posts that imply or state outright that Hillary Clinton suddenly stepped out of the dugout onto the field or that she ought to be tweeting more or whatever it is people think she is or is not doing. Hillary knows better than to give these midterms spit and a prayer. Anyone who thinks she has not done enough or is not doing enough does not know Hillary Clinton and her work ethic.

Rant over.

Go here to see what Onward Together has been doing. >>>>>

Hillary joined in on the first annual Onward Together members call yesterday. Today, she tweeted out summary statements about partner organizations.  You can learn more about all the partners here >>>>

We loved and admired Ron Dellums. He was intense and intelligent, fearless and philosophical. For more than 30 years in public office, he stayed true to himself and to his principles, and served the people of Oakland with honor, integrity, and a deep sense of social justice. He spoke hard truths to power and appealed to America’s conscience in championing those who had for too long been left out and left behind, whether in the East Bay, across the nation, or around the world, including as one of America’s most effective anti-apartheid activists. We will always be grateful for his friendship, his support, and for all the chances we had to laugh with and learn from him over the years.
