Everything old is new again.  Hillary’s pretty sweater is not new. Actually, it is a Patagonia fleece. Don’t we all want to be able to wear what we bought a few decades ago?  Go Hillary!

Hillary Clinton Has Been Wearing This Fleece For 21 Years

And they say she isn’t relatable.

12/01/2016

A few lucky people hiking in the woods of upstate New York have recently bumped into Hillary Clinton and posted photos to social media. And according to the ever-lurking eyes of Twitter, the fleece Clinton wears to hike in those woods has been in her wardrobe rotation for the past 21 years.

Of the many photos people have posted over the past few weeks, one shows Clinton in a fleece your normcore dreams are made of.

Since that post, the internet has slowly but surely identified it as the same fleece she wore on a trip to Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming with Bill in 1995.

When Hillary sat down with Huffington Post‘s Sam Stein, she turned the tables and started by asking him a question.  He concluded by thanking her for not blacklisting HuffPo.

Hillary Clinton: Great to talk to you, Sam. Aren’t you from one of the [Trump-]banned publications?

The Huffington Post: Yes, and our group is growing bigger. We have a real crew now.

I think there should be some kind of badge of honor that you all put on.

To Restore Trust in Government, Slow Wall Street’s Revolving Door

Posted: 08/31/2015

One of our nation’s greatest strengths is that we are governed by each other — what President Lincoln celebrated as “a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.”

But increasingly, Americans’ trust in government is eroding. And a big reason for that is the so-called revolving door between government and the private sector.

Inviting outside voices into government is often a good thing. When public servants have experience beyond Washington, they bring new ideas, new perspectives, and new knowledge to the work of governing this huge, complicated country of ours. Some of America’s most dedicated public servants got their start in technology, business, academia, or other fields. Most of the time, that private-sector experience is an asset, not a liability.

But in some cases, it can affect the public trust — for example, if a public servant’s past and future are tied to the financial industry. That’s when people start worrying that the foxes are guarding the hen house.

Tammy — has introduced legislation in the Senate to help close that revolving door. The other of us — Hillary — strongly supports this bill, and as president would crack down on conflicts of interest in government.

Here’s what this bill would do.

Chelsea Clinton With Marlo Thomas 

Posted: 03/13/2014

I was so thrilled to have Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, as our very special 100th Guest on Mondays With Marlo. We discussed everything from her favorite memories of growing up in the White House, to her role in the Clinton Global Initiative University, to the prospect of her following in her parent’s footsteps by one day running for office. Chelsea is such a positive role model for young people everywhere, and I was absolutely charmed by her. Watch our full interview to find out what she had to say!

Growing pains in the White House! Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton opened up in a new interview on Monday, March 17, about calling 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue home during her teenage years.

“I was always deeply aware that I was living in history,” Clinton, now 34, told Marlo Thomas in an interview shared by Huffington Post. President Bill Clinton‘s daughter would arrive home from school and walk through the receiving room, which she knew was a special place. “But then I would have dinner with my parents at the kitchen table every night!” she said with a laugh. “There was much about my life that also was normal.”

Aside from all the obsessive polling and GOP strategizing over a candidacy that remains undeclared,  Hillary is making news rather than always having news made up about her.  While day one of her latest swing through California yielded not even a single twitpic (that I could find), it has caused something of a stir.

As a former secretary of state, she is expected to comment on current events and foreign policy from time to time.   When Secretary Kerry was forging his Iran deal, she remained silent while media folk clamored for a comment.  She has proven far less reticent on the unfolding situation in Ukraine and specifically more recently in Crimea.

Last week, at a conference in Orlando, she responded to a question about Putin’s plans and actions in Ukraine.  Apparently yesterday,  at a Boys and Girls Club fundraiser in Long Beach, she elaborated a bit on Putin’s latest moves in Crimea causing the ripple effect we see in today’s headers.

In early June, 2012, referring to the “avalanche” of news leaks that may or may not have originated in the White House, Dianne Feinstein used the word “Anchluss.”   Yesterday in California,  Hillary did not use that word,  but unmistakably was comparing Putin’s behavior toward Ukraine, specifically the autonomous republic of Crimea,  and conceivably his plans for other former SSRs  (keep an eye on Georgia and Moldova) to Hitler’s absorption of Austria (the Anschluss of 1938) and subsequent annexation of the Sudetenland in 1938.

Hillary did not compare Putin to Hitler.  She compared his behavior to Hitler’s in 1938.  It is an important distinction.  She was comparing tactics and their bases not personalities.

Report: Hillary Clinton Says Putin Behaving Like Adolf Hitler

Putin has justified the Russian incursion into the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea by saying that ethnic Russians there need to be protected from attacks.

An attendee at the fundraiser, Harry Saltzgaver, a newspaper executive, told Buzzfeed that Clinton clarified that “while that makes people nervous, there is no indication that Putin is as irrational as the instigator of World War II.”

Putin “believes his mission is to restore Russian greatness,” Clinton said, according to the report. “When he looks at Ukraine, he sees a place that he believes is by its very nature part of Mother Russia.”

It is unremarkable that a retired secretary of state might comment on a situation in which she has insight and familiarity.  That these remarks should have incited a flurry of mocking tweets is a concern since there is historical accuracy in what Hillary said, even if she used neither of the A-words.  We all knew (or should have) what she was talking about, and she is right.  It makes people nervous.

On a bright note, I thought I would share this little gem from HuffPo excerpted from Lisa Rogak’s “Hillary Clinton in Her Own Words.”   It has wonderful quotes and is illustrated with some cute and amusing pics and gifs.  Enjoy!

With November 2013 not even over yet,  Hillary Clinton leaves her successful fund raising for Terry McAuliffe and Bill de Blasio behind and moves on toward the mid-term primaries.  Her first beneficiary will be someone very close, according to HuffPo.

Marjorie Margolies represented Pennsylvania’s 13th district from 1993-1995.   She lost reelection after casting the final and deciding vote to pass President Clinton’s 1993 budget (as he had asked her to) despite her opposition to it.  No one should have any doubt about the value the Clintons place on loyalty.  Those up for reelection who never paid dues in the past need to take note.  It may take more than running over to Ready for Hillary or signing a letter to get a Clinton on your campaign bandwagon.  For now, at least, they are keeping it in the family.

Hillary Clinton To Reportedly Fundraise For Marjorie Margolies, Chelsea Clinton’s Mother-In-Law

Posted: 11/19/2013

PHILADELPHIA – Hillary Clinton will be appearing next year at a fundraiser for Marjorie Margolies’ congressional campaign in the Pennsylvania suburbs, according to Ken Smukler, who serves as a communications consultant for Margolies.

Margolies, who is Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law, is locked in a Democratic primary campaign against a strong progressive, state Sen. Daylin Leach, as well as two others. Margolies served one congressional term in the early 1990s.

Longtime Margolies fundraiser Linda August, who attended Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, also confirmed Clinton’s upcoming appearance.

“Hillary said from the beginning that she was not going to be political this year except for McAuliffe and family. She is scheduled to come in six months before the election. She is coming in just when we need her,” said Smukler, who also serves as spokesman for the local Democratic party. “The Clintons are doing this for themselves as much as for Marjorie. They can’t have a family member lose a race for Congress six months before she is gearing up for a presidential election.”

While some of us were watching Margaret Thatcher’s funeral this morning, from which the Clintons, the Bushes, and the Obamas were all notably absent, on another channel President Obama was talking to Savannah Guthrie about his former secretary of state.   Proving that he has mastered the fancy footwork involved in dancing around Hillary Clinton 2016 speculation,  Obama accomplished a creditable sidestep on the Today Show as HuffPo reports.

Obama Misses Hillary Clinton, But Says ‘She’s Earned Her Rest’ (VIDEO)

The Huffington Post  |  By Posted: 04/17/2013 10:34 am EDTPresident Barack Obama couldn’t avoid questions about Hillary Clinton potentially running for president in 2016 during a recent interview on NBC’s “Today” show.

Speaking with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie in an interview recorded last week and aired Wednesday morning, Obama steered clear of assuming anything about Clinton’s White House plans. But he also appeared happy to praise his former secretary of state, who departed the administration earlier this year.

“Do you miss her around here?” Guthrie asked.

“I do,” Obama responded. “She’s earned her rest and I know that she’s going to be able — whatever she does — to continue to be a leader and an incredibly positive force for the causes I care about and that she cares about all around the world.”
