Hillary and Chelsea Clinton were not attaching any political subtexts to last night’s Superbowl LI, but they did register their appreciation of a few notables.

What we knew before the crowd at the North Carolina State William Neal Reynolds Coliseum knew it was that Bon Jovi was on the plane with all the Clintons when they left Philadelphia for Raleigh.  WJC was pretending to be deaf when Andrea Mitchell asked a question.

What none of us knew was that Lady Gaga would be at the rally. In a nod to Madeleine Albright, she sported a big, beautiful pin on the jacket of her pantsuit.  She spoke and then she performed with total Gaga gusto. (JSYK MSNBC cut into Mike Pence’s loud boring screech in Grand Rapids but did not let us hear Gaga sing at all.  Our poor ears.)

In other news, last night Madonna gave a free concert for Hillary in Greenwich Village’s Washington Square Park.  What a awesome night!

Chelsea introduced her dad, and he thanked Lady Gaga and Jon Bon Jovi.  He talked about the NC fights for voting and LGBT rights. Asked us not to quit until the polls close. He pointed out a sign in the hall about Hillary’s mom that said “Dorothy was right.” Then he talked about Hillary and how she is. Asked us to be there until the last person votes.

When Hillary came on the students started chanting her name and doing a bounce to “I believe she will win!”  Hillary praised their energy and enthusiasm.

Hillary spoke about the potential for joy, the choice between unity and division.

As the saying goes, that was all she wrote. Now it is up to all of us. Be there!  Vote!  Be there. Get your friends and family to vote.  Be there!  Watch your neighbors’ kids so they can vote.  Be there!  Give neighbors a lift to the polling location.  Be creative!  Imagine ways that you can move the vote forward.  Contact your local field office to see how you can pitch in.

Today is D-Day.  Happy Election Day, everyone, and thank you for all of your hard work! Thank you for your generosity.  You all are the best!  If you can, chipping in a few more dollars would also help.

Stunning that with all those “pop” names on the list, nowhere do I see Catherine Ashton’s name!  Have I missed it, or is she somehow simply not on the list?  The list becomes something of a joke when Lady Gaga (# 14) outranks Ellen Johnson Sirleaf (#82) , and Catherine Ashton is left off completely.  Before the “Little Monsters” jump all over me:  Regardless of how many of you she can reach with a single tweet (that may or may not be earth-shattering – more likely not), I fail to see  how being a Tweet Star (the reason given by Moira Forbes for this ranking) makes Gaga more powerful than the first woman elected president of an African nation or how Cathy Ashton somehow does not qualify at all.

I love to see Hillary Clinton honored, but when the list is this unbalanced and disorganized it loses its gravitas and becomes just another pop item.

The Most Powerful Women In Politics, 2012

For the second year running, three of the top five women on FORBES list of the world’s 100 most powerful women are politicians. In the list as a whole, 19 politicians hold court, including eight heads of state. It wasn’t a U.S. election year, which explains the exit of the Tea Party candidates who wielded considerable power in 2011, but overall more than half of the political returnees from last year’s list shot considerably up the rankings.

What does this say about the changing dynamic of women in politics around the world? In the words of former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, alittle something like this: “People say there are not enough qualified women, that’s one of the biggest bullshit things I’ve ever heard.”
