I recently saw that Wikipedia has stricken Daily Mail from its list of reliable sources. While I am pretty sure some of the information here is faulty, the pics are worth the post. Little Aidan was out with his mom and dad.

Chelsea Clinton was on the Ellen DeGeneres Show today.  She told Ellen that she hit the “Mom Jackpot” and that Charlotte, who was a bee last Halloween, will be a ladybug this Halloween. Ellen gave Chelsea this adorable ladybug baby buggy for Charlotte, completely outfitted with campaign signs.


It’s a cute coincidence since yesterday when she was speaking in Iowa, Hillary had a ladybug on her cheek.

Chelsea Clinton is following in her mother’s footsteps – doing softball interviews on Ellen and Extra, as a way to give a boost to her mom’s presidential campaign.

On Ellen, Chelsea Clinton remarked that she had ‘won the mom jackpot’ and was happy her mother killed it on Saturday Night Live ‘because I think my mom’s really funny,’ she said. ‘And I’m grateful that America is seeing more of that.’

She covered many of the same bases on Extra, though added that she loved Ivanka Trump ‘and I think friendship always trump politics and that’s how it should be.’

Hillary Clinton is gifted above and beyond the rest of us.  Those of us who hang out here know that.  It is why we are here!  So when stories crop up about gifts she has received, we are all eyes and ears. Some people have sewed gifts for her using their best sewing machine.  As Secretary of State, she brought gifts with her to present to personages she was visiting.  This documentary from National Geographic has a segment about that.

If you have never seen this video, I hope you can see it here.  Here Inside the State Department from National Geographic.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

or here.

We see that, prior to trips, the Secretary of State chose and brought gifts along for those she was about to visit.

In turn, she received gifts.  These were not personal gifts, however.  They belonged, from the start, to us.  Hillary did not keep them.  She could not.  They were property of the U.S. government from the moment they were given.

Nonetheless, when I see stories like these, I think  – well, yes.  If I were a Saudi Sheikh, I would give her jewels too!  I would want to bedeck her in gems.  Hillary is so beautiful inside and out.  Yes, I would shower her with precious crystals, metals, and stones – carefully.

If I were a Chinese official, though, I would give her a panda cub.  I think she would love that!  This little ball of fur is one on the Atlanta Twins.  So far so good with them, thank God and the great vets there!  I think Hillary would have been thrilled for us actually to have one not owned by China (alas that was not to happen), and I am sure she would have let us rotate as babysitters.  (Well, it’s still vacation time.  Daydreams are permitted.)

I have to say that I love the picture the New York Daily News chose for this story.

State Department reveals Hillary Clinton received $500K worth of jewelry from Saudi king

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden received expensive gifts from Saudi Arabia, Russia and China, among others.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received expensive jewelry from Saudi Arabia and Brunei.

Foreign diplomacy doesn’t always resolve world-class problems, but it sure does rake in the swag.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was given a half-million bucks worth of diamond and ruby jewelry by Saudi Arabian King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz and received $58,000 worth of bling from Brunei. Imagine all the gold teeth she can get grafted on her teeth, she would intimidate all, if she doesnt already…

The lavish gifts were among a treasure trove of keepsakes bestowed upon U.S. leaders in 2012, the State Department disclosed Thursday.

Here is another take on the same story.

$500K diamond-encrusted jewels, Cognac and a 41-inch saber: The lavish gifts given to President Obama, Hillary Clinton and others from foreign leaders

  • Saudi Arabian King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz gave Hillary Clinton diamond-and-ruby-encrusted jewels worth half a million dollars last year

  • The gift was disclosed by the State Department, which has released a complete list of items given to U.S. officials in 2012

By Hayley Peterson

Foreign leaders gave lavish gifts to a number of U.S. officials last year, including the Saudi Arabian king, who gave Hillary Clinton diamond-and-ruby-encrusted jewels worth half a million dollars.

Clinton’s gifts from King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz – which included a necklace, bracelet, earrings and a ring – were by far the most expensive items among the hundreds of gifts given to U.S. officials in 2012.

A complete list of the gifts received last year, as well as a couple dozen from previous years, were disclosed by the State Department on Thursday.

So, as summer wraps up and vacations end, it’s fun to speculate about the gifts she got for us by being so awesome, and what we might have had if China would only let us actually keep just one little panda. Nonetheless, we watch and hold our collective breath hoping these two little babies make it to day 100 and finally receive names – in the Chinese tradition.

Hillary Clinton glowed in an Oscar de la Renta ensemble at Lincoln Center to present him with the Founders Award at the CFDA Awards tonight.   These are some early photos.  There may be more later, so check back.  Some of the pics come from a Daily Mail article.   Hillary was her adorable,  “hill-arious” self.  You can see the video here.

‘I’m going to pitch a show for Bravo. We can call it Project Pantsuit’: Hillary Clinton takes aim at her own signature style at CFDA Fashion Awards

By Tamara Abraham


Hillary Clinton had America’s fashion elite in stitches last night, during her hilarious speech at the CFDA Fashion Awards.

The former Secretary of State, who got a standing ovation as she took to the podium at New York’s Lincoln Center, took aim at her penchant for pantsuits.

She told the assembled crowd: ‘I’m going to be pitching Andy [Cohen] on a new show for Bravo… we can call it Project Pantsuit.’


Naturally, Mrs Clinton, 65, was wearing one of her friend’s designs. She sported a pair of Oscar de la Renta pants with a long, embellished navy coat and dazzling blue earrings.

Adding this in. You have got to love that header and the picture. That smile! Simply irresistible!

Hillary Clinton Steals the Show at the CFDA Awards, Nabs a Presidential Endorsement

06-03-13-F-01The other easy consensus from the night? Secretary Hillary Clinton stole the show.

While host Andy Cohen had a hard time eliciting so much as a chuckle from the oh-so-serious fashion crowd, Clinton, there to present the Eleanor Lambert founder’s award to her buddy Oscar de la Renta, had no trouble bringing the entire auditorium to its feet.

“Now that I have some more time on my hands I am going to be pitching Andy and others on a new show for Bravo to sort of fill that gap that is so apparent to some of us,” Clinton said, wearing a midnight blue glittering pantsuit by Oscar de la Renta. “We could call it Project Pantsuit.” The crowd went wild. (“Project Pantsuit is totally a go,” Cohen said later on. “Madeleine Albright is doing the first challenge.”)

And the jokes didn’t stop there.


And maybe, just maybe, de la Renta and Clinton’s deep bond explains the lack of one he has with First Lady Michelle Obama–who has never worn his designs. Maybe he’s just waiting to dress the President.

Unless you spent last night in a cloister, you know that Hillary Clinton launched her paid speaking career as a private citizen last night at this affair.  It was closed to the press and simultaneously all over the news.

Hillary Clinton One

More than 300 of the apartment industry’s top executives gathered at the Four Seasons at Las Colinas in Dallas today for NMHC’s spring business meetings. The day opened with the Apartment Finance Strategies Conference, which included in-depth discussion of financing and operations issues, trends and forecasts, and closed with an exclusive interview with former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Secretary Clinton is considered a potential front runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

This appearance is Secretary Clinton’s first paid speaking engagement since leaving office and continues NMHC’s tradition of connecting members with a wide spectrum of world-class thought leaders. Similarly, past speakers have included Secretary Clinton’s husband and former President Bill Clinton, as well as members of the Bush legacy, including former Presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, among numerous other influential political and business leaders.

According to The Daily Mail, Hillary Clinton was twice asked the question that, for two years running, has represented the most ridiculous waste of time spent with her.  Granted she is said to have pulled down six figures for this appearance, and you might argue that those paying that much are entitled to use their moment in her presence any way they want, but seriously, if you had two minutes with Hillary Clinton, knowing what the answer is going to be (we all know),  would this be the question you would ask?

Hillary Clinton dodges 2016 talk and says she just wants to relax at first paid speech since leaving office

By Associated Press Reporter


Tom Bozzuto, chairman and CEO of the Bozzuto Group, a real estate services organization based in Greenbelt, Md., conducted an interview of Clinton during the hour-long session, and said he covered topics such as international affairs, the economy and the role of rental housing in the U.S.

When he asked about 2016, Bozzuto said Clinton told the audience that she was ‘too freshly released from her role as secretary of state to have time to even think about this.’

Bozzuto said Clinton said she had been asked about the subject by someone in the hallway minutes before the speech. ‘She said she was looking forward to having time to relax,’ he said.
