Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton meets with local residents at the Jones St. Java House, Tuesday, April 14, 2015, in LeClaire, Iowa.
Well, that didn’t take long.
The same day Hillary Clinton officially launched her campaign for president, she was scrutinized for doing so while being a woman.
“I don’t need her to drown me in estrogen every time she opens her mouth,” GOP strategist Ana Navarro said Sunday while on CNN to complain about Clinton’s lack of “subtlety.” “Every time she opens her mouth it’s about the granddaughter and Chelsea’s wedding and the yoga routines. She doesn’t need to have a sign that says, ‘I’m a woman, hear me roar!'”
(I know – I thought this was another on-point Onion story, too. I’m still a little paranoid it might be. But I watched the video, and those are real words coming out of a real person’s mouth in 2015.) Read more »

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.
The New York Times:
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.

A gay couple featured in Clinton’s campaign kick-off video.
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.

Chelsea Clinton, second from right, leaves Manhattan’s Lenox Hill hospital with her newborn baby, Charlotte, husband Marc Mezvinsky, left, mother Hillary Clinton, partly visible, second from left, and father Bill Clinton, in New York, Monday, Sept. 29, 2014. Charlotte was born Friday, Sept. 26, 2014.
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.
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.'”
The pair were attending an event during the weekend long Clinton Global Initiative 2014 Annual Meeting in New York City.
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 »
