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.

The Clintons did check in at the Christine Aguilera concert on Wednesday night.


Finally this from the cast of Murphy Brown.



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

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.”

Let me catch my breath.  What the “hey” is going on?  I cannot figure out whether people are stupid, crazy, or just uninformed.

First, the interwebs are inundated with a picture I will not post here from Wednesday’s event when Hillary Ciinton,  a laureate herself in October 2010,  celebrated this year’s winners of the McGovern Award, David Novak and Christina Aguilera (who apparently did not consult with Reese Witherspoon about wardrobe recommendations when participating in State Department events).   The  picture and stories misrepresent what actually happened at that moment in that crowded little space behind the table bearing the (huge) awards and beside the podium.  In the video from  Wednesday, it is clear that Hillary is merely trying to move and was oogling no one and nothing, spectacularly exhibited cleavage notwithstanding.

Second, as if there were nothing else going on in the world, someone makes a meme of Hillary and Big Bird with a reference to a safe house (also not shared here since it would be counter-productive to the purpose of this post).  Yes, we all enjoy the Hillary memes, Hillary included, and everyone loves Big Bird.  We do want him and the Sesame Street residents, whom Mme. Secretary loves,  to be safe from Mitt Romney and his big budget cleaver, but the buzz word here should set off bells and whistles.  Perhaps this is not the most appropriate time to posit jokes about safe houses.  Think of the implications.

On October 10, next Wednesday,  Mme. Secretary is due on Capitol Hill to testify before Darryl Issa’s House Oversight Committee on security in Libya in general and in Benghazi in particular in the months and weeks prior to the attack on our consulate there culminating with the murders of  Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others at a safe house in Benghazi.

Get it? 

(I am sure Mme. Secretary saw the humor in both of these items, but in her videos today she appeared less bubbly than usual.  Prepping for Issa is taxing and the strain shows.   He and his Tea Party cronies are going after her.  We should keep that in mind going forward.  That “vast right-wing conspiracy”  exists, and they are going after our girl.)
