It sounds like there’s some serious buyer’s remorse going on with the last Presidential election because people went wild for Hillary Clinton Friday night.

Hillary, Bill and Chelsea hit up “To Kill a Mockingbird” — the hottest ticket on Broadway —

Hillary and Bill Clinton accompanied U.S. Representative Debbie Dingell to her husband’s funeral. Bill Clinton delivered the eulogy.


WASHINGTON — A week after his death in Dearborn, former U.S. Rep. John Dingell was remembered Thursday in the nation’s capital by several legislative colleagues and one old hunting buddy — former President Bill Clinton.

“The thing that I loved most about him was that he was a world-class doer,” said Clinton of Dingell, who during more than 59 years in Congress helped write and pass some of the most important civil rights, environmental and health care legislation in the nation’s history. “John Dingell was just about the best doer in the history of American public life.”

Dingell, a Democrat who became the longest-serving member of Congress, died last week at age 92. A funeral was held for him in Dearborn on Tuesday and another service began Thursday shortly after 10:30 a.m. at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in northwest Washington, D.C.

A veteran, he is expected to be interred at Arlington National Cemetery on Friday.

Longtime Rep. John Dingell was remembered Thursday as ‘one of the greats’ as lawmakers and former colleagues hailed his record-breaking service in the House.

The 92-year-old Dingell who died last week, served 59 years in Congress, longer than anyone else in U.S. history. The Michigan Democrat was the longtime chairman of the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee.

Many of the laws forged over the past 60 years reflect Dingell’s influence, former House Speaker John Boehner and other speakers said, and touch on everything from health care to the environment, civil rights and the auto industry, which Dingell fiercely defended throughout his tenure.

Statement

For Immediate Release: February 7, 2019

Statement from President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on the passing of John Dingell

Hillary and I mourn the passing of John Dingell, one of the finest public servants in American history.  For nearly 60 years, John represented the people of Michigan with honor, integrity, great good humor, and an unequaled ability to get good legislation passed.  There are few major legislative triumphs since 1955 that John didn’t have a key hand in passing.  He was a passionate advocate for health care for all and was instrumental in creating Medicare and passing the Afforable Care Act; a defender of the environment who helped pass the Clean Water Act and Endangered Species Act; and tireless champion of civil rights who would often cite his vote for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as the proudest and most important of his career.  His respect for his constituents, his colleagues of both parties, and the institutions of Congress are a valuable reminder today of what a noble calling public service can be.  Hillary and I are grateful to have had the chance to work with him, to celebrate his becoming the longest-serving member of Congress in history, and most of all, to call him our friend.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Debbie and his entire family.

I am so proud of the impact the Clinton Foundation has made. When I ran for president, this top-rated global charity was dragged into a political mud fight. In the two years since, people with an axe to grind have continued to try to undermine its work by attacking them and making false accusations. But the Foundation has continued to help people across America and around the world, undeterred by these baseless assaults.

I’m inspired by this steadfast dedication to improve lives. There are real issues in society needing attention that the people of the Clinton Foundation work hard to solve every day. Despite the attacks, they are staying focused on what really matters.

Join with me in resisting the vitriol. Sign up today and get involved in work that matters.

For the past 18 years, the Clinton Foundation has dramatically and demonstrably helped millions of people around the world by working with partners to improve lives, from making HIV/AIDS treatment available across the developing world and helping children in America’s schools get healthier meals to working with faith leaders across America to help stem the scourge of opioid abuse.

Today, the Foundation’s work continues to improve lives by working with partners and providing programs that create economic opportunity, improve public health, and inspire civic engagement and service.

Next week, I will have the opportunity to join Bill and more than 500 partners from business, government, and the philanthropic community as we convene in Puerto Rico for the CGI Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery. Together, we are helping Puerto Rico and communities across the Caribbean to build back better after the devastating 2017 hurricanes; we’re providing resources, practical solutions, and technical assistance that is making a real difference.

This work is important and we need your help. Add your name and get involved.

Making a difference in people’s lives takes hard work, leadership, and resources. Now more than ever, we need your support to help the Clinton Foundation continue its impact. Join us and together we can continue to help change lives.

Sincerely,

Hillary

Rather than stay in to watch President Donald Trump‘s prime-time address to the nation about what he’s been calling the crisis on the border, Bill and Hillary Clinton enjoyed a date night on Broadway instead.

The former commander-in-chief and the former secretary of state attended a star-studded premiere of the new play Choir Boy, which tells the story of a gifted gay black teen at an all-male prep school.

The Clintons were all smiles as they posed up with their ‘Playbill’ booklet at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on West 47th Street Tuesday night.

These photos are not in a particular order. Most of them came from Twitter where the camera attention was almost fully upon the guest side where the presidential lineup was seated rather than on the family side.

Sully said his goodbyes at the Capitol. With the former president since last April when Barbara Bush passed away, he will go on to serve other veterans.

Hillary always has a fascination with church ceilings.

The day belonged to the Bush family, but understandably there were moments. Here is one.
