Story highlights

  • She calls for supporters to focus on the 2018 midterm elections

Over the course of her life, Hillary Clinton has had many important titles bestowed upon her. Of course, she was the First Lady of the United States for eight years, the Senator of New York for eight years, Secretary of State for four, and the first woman to ever be chosen as a major party’s nominee for President.

Now she can add “fashion muse” and “footwear model” to the list, thanks to Katy Perry, who designed a pair of pumps in her honor, dubbing them The Hillary. And when Clinton got her hands on a pair of the baby pink pumps, she was more than happy to show them off to their best effect for Perry’s Instagram.

Cute for Easter, they are affordable and come in small sizes, too!  Before I take any more abuse for talking about Hillary’s shoes, yes we do talk about such accessories on men too!  I have seen lots of comments about extra-long neck ties that do not camouflage a big gut.

The event was held at the Newseum in Washington D.C.  Introducing Hillary, Marian Wright Edelman noted her overwhelming lead in the popular vote and called her “the People’s President.”  Hillary admitted that making this appearance was not the easiest thing for her.  She said she wanted to curl up with a good book and her dogs and never leave the house again.  But she said she got up and dusted herself off because Marian exemplified that for her.  She reminisced about Marian’s leadership and service, and her work with RFK and MLK.

Hillary quoted Marian, “Service is the rent we pay for living.”  She spoke of service and said she did not get into public service to hold high office.  She called child poverty America’s problem. She said there is a lot of work to do and asked us not to lose heart or give up on the values we share and to stay engaged.  She told us America is worth it.  Our children are worth it.  She quoted 1st Corinthians, “Love never fails.”

Hillary told the story of her mother, Dorothy, who had a difficult childhood.  She dreams of going back to her mom’s childhood to tell her that she would grow up to have a family and her daughter would become a U.S. Senator, Secretary of State, and win more than 62 million votes for President of the United States.
