They’re going on tour!

 


NEW YORK (AP) — Now that Beyonce and Jay-Z are off the road, another power couple is taking their place: Hillary and Bill Clinton.

The Clintons announced Monday they will visit four cities in 2018 and nine in 2019 across North America in a series of conversations dubbed “An Evening with President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.” It is being produced by tour promoter Live Nation, the company behind Michelle Obama’s massive tour to promote her new book as well as tours for Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars.

The couple will hold joint conversations at the shows and share “stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking toward the future,” Live Nation said.

Bill wore lederhosen but there is no evidence that he performed the slap dance. Hillary wore seasonal colors.

They might have enjoyed a beer or two. The Official Beer Inquisitor is tied up in DC probably getting confirmed today. “I like beer. I drink beer. Do you like beer? Do you? DO YOU?”

Yesterday, Susan Collins spent almost 50 minutes addressing everything under the October sun except Brett Kavanaugh’s performance last Thursday when he was up before the Senate Judiciary Committee for questioning and decided it was a good idea to turn the tables and interrogate some of them. The level of animosity he displayed was shocking. The whole spectacle was stunning. It apparently made no impression on Collins who will vote “yes” today making this a good day to hit the streets.

Yes, I would like to see this. Sounds interesting. Not sure this is one the Clintons will be hitting, but you never know!

 


Set during the 2008 Democratic primaries, the play about the complex workings of a marriage reunites Metcalf with producer Scott Rudin and playwright Lucas Hnath, whose ‘A Doll’s House, Part 2’ won the actress her first Tony.

Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow, both two-time Tony Award winners, will team up on Broadway to play the power couple who have been a prominent part of the American political landscape for the past quarter-century in Hillary and Clinton.

The play by Lucas Hnath is a four-hander set in New Hampshire during the 2008 Democratic primaries, as Hillary Rodham Clinton, her chief strategist Mark J. Penn and her husband Bill Clinton butt heads over whether bringing in the former president will be a liability or an asset in HRC’s troubled campaign to secure the nomination for a White House run. Her opponent, Barack Obama, is the play’s unnamed fourth character, referred to only as “The Other Guy.”

Rising-star playwright Hnath made his Broadway debut in 2017 with A Doll’s House, Part 2, which has gone on to become the most-produced play of the current theater season in America. The witty response to Ibsen won Metcalf the first of two consecutive Tonys, for lead actress in a play. She followed with a featured actress win this year for Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women. Both those plays were presented on Broadway by Scott Rudin, who also is producing Hillary and Clinton.

Joe Mantello — another two-time Tony winner, who directed Three Tall Women and this summer’s hit revival of The Boys in the Band, on which Rudin also was a producer — will stage Hillary and Clinton.

Hillary Clinton’s emotional cameo on Murphy Brown [Video]

George BackProducer, Yahoo Entertainment

Murphy Brown stars Candice Bergen and Faith Ford sat down with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happen Live, where they discussed the recent season premiere and Hillary Clinton’s surprise cameo.

While Clinton got a lot of laughs on camera, both actresses said that things were different off camera. “When she first came on the set, I, of course, started tearing up, and I saw another couple of women on the set tearing up,” said Bergen. “It was very emotional.”

Photo Flash: President and Hillary Clinton Attend LITTLE ROCK

The “Little Rock Nine” made history when on the first day of school, September 4, 1957, they were barred from attending Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, AR. Sixty one years later (September 4, 2018), former Governor and First Lady of Arkansas – President Clinton and Secretary Clinton – attended a performance of “Little Rock.”

Everyone who counts was there. There was unity. There were tears. There was laughter. It was a sendoff befitting a president attended by past presidents, government officials past and present, and many, many others from every walk of life.

Cindy McCain stood with the grace, composure, and strength that we saw from Jackie Kennedy until a brief moment during Danny Boy.

Meghan McCain spoke like an American storm, and despite comments she has made about Hillary Clinton, Hillary appeared to be smiling in encouragement and pride in Meghan’s power.

All of the music was beautiful including a very unusual rendition of Amazing Grace partially accompanied by bagpipes.

It was a celebration of more than John McCain. It was a celebration of the country he fought for in many different roles in his life.

If you are American, you are mourning the loss of a great patriot this evening. John McCain served our country in war and in peace, in the military and as a civilian. His passing marks the end of an era when, even for a maverick, as he liked to characterize himself, the fight for the values we hold dear superseded party politics.

President and Secretary Clinton shared their feelings on his passing tonight.

Statement

Senator John McCain believed that every citizen has a responsibility to make something of the freedoms given by our Constitution, and from his heroic service in the Navy to his 35 years in Congress, he lived by his creed every day.  He was a skilled, tough politician, as well as a trusted colleague alongside whom Hillary was honored to serve in the Senate.  He frequently put partisanship aside to do what he thought was best for the country, and was never afraid to break the mold if it was the right thing to do.  I will always be especially grateful for his leadership in our successful efforts to normalize relations with Vietnam.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Cindy, his mother, Roberta, his children, and his entire family.

Statement

Kofi Annan was a truly great UN Secretary-General. It was an honor to work with him in his efforts to reform the UN, strengthen global health and peacekeeping, and reduce poverty. He made the fight against AIDS and the responsibility to protect civilians in conflict zones true priorities for the UN.

After he left office, he continued his leadership on poverty, environmental, and peace issues through his foundation.

In every phase of his life, he held fast to his Ghanaian roots and set a powerful example of determined leadership while always treating others with respect and dignity.

I will always be grateful to have worked with him as President and later as UN Special Envoy for Tsunami Recovery. Hillary and I treasured our friendship with him and Nane, and our thoughts and prayers are with her and their family.
