We were all excited when Hillary Clinton announced she was throwing her hat in the ring for the 2016 presidential race yesterday—but not as thrilled as the bottoms among us, apparently. Not long after the announcement, a group of queens from San Francisco launched the “I’d Bottom for Hillary” website where you can pick up a T-shirt to show your utterly gay support. Read more »

It was no surprise that Hillary Clinton declared her candidacy for president on Sunday. The unexpected part? She started her campaign with a road trip and ended up in Pennsylvania.
She was on her way to Iowa. But still.
Around the time a video was posted announcing her candidacy for president, Mrs. Clinton began a two-day drive to Iowa where she is scheduled to have her first campaign event on Tuesday.
The surprise road trip was Mrs. Clinton’s idea and would not have been made public had someone who saw her at a gas station in Pennsylvania not alerted CNN, an aide said. The aide added that Mrs. Clinton wanted to visit with people at rest stops and diners along the way.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a political rock, you’ve most likely heard that former Secretary of State and 2008 Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was going to announce her bid for the 2016 Presidency today via a video. What many of us didn’t realize was just how much the campaign video would feature gays and lesbians as prominent figures. Read more »
On Wednesday morning, Quinnipiac University released its latest poll, this one pitting Hillary Clinton against leading Republican White House contenders in Colorado, Iowa and Virginia, three of the pivotal “swing states” in the general election. And Clinton crushes New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in all three of those states. Read more »
Last week, Larry Wilmore threw a bag of weak tea at Sen. Cory Booker when Booker said he didn’t want to run for president — nobody believed Booker’s ambitions stop in the Senate, after all.
Booker may get an opportunity to test those ambitions sooner than expected.

Last night, Hillary Clinton spoke at the National Constitution Center at a rally for Pennsylvania gubernatorial hopeful Tom Wolf. And we learned one very important fact about the Clintons: The newest Clinton is a fan of the Eagles.
Clinton says Chelsea's husband Marc, whose family is from Pennsylvania, has "already held [daughter Charlotte] watching the Eagles play."

Chelsea’s husband is Marc Mezvinsky, the son of Edward Mezvinsky and Marjorie Margolies. He’s From Here! One can only hope when Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky is inevitably President of the United States, she remembers to rule in a way that would best benefit the Philadelphia Eagles. Can the president request replay reviews? I think the president should get to request unlimited replay reviews.
Philly Roots drummer Questlove posted this photo of him and former Secretary of State (and future President?) Hillary Clinton on his Instagram feed. The caption reads, “Most would say ‘ … so this happened’ … I’m like ‘yeah it’s Sunday night.'”
Gov. Chris Christie is taking fire for his use of the state helicopter, with the brunt of criticism coming from a group promoting Hillary Clinton’s presidential prospects. NJ.com reports that the group, American Bridge, criticized Christie for flying instead of taking a relatively short (and cheaper) 40 minute drive from Haddon Heights to Trenton following a town meeting: Read more »
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is slowly gaining ground on Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, according to a new poll.
Hillary Clinton drew a large crowd to the Free Library of Philadelphia today for the signing of her new book, Hard Choices. The people I talked to after they got their book signed were broadly smiling, one lady telling me it was, “a once-in-a-lifetime experience to meet the next president of the United States.
A few notables stopped by to say hi, including Mayor Michael Nutter, who Hillary stopped the signing to get up, greet and hug, Council President Darrell Clarke, Senator Vincent Hughes, and Marjorie Margolies, the mother of Hillary’s son-in-law.
First in line was Dylan Hewitt who arrived at 5:30 a.m. He told me he was proud that Madame Secretary Hillary Clinton was a fellow New Yorker, and she was his inspiration to follow in her political footsteps. He attends University of Pennsylvania the Fels Institute of Government, where he studies political science. Margolies is one of his professors. Check out some photos of the afternoon below.
