When the New York Post does misogyny, they really do it right. Witness the tabloid’s front page today, in which a huge photo of an angry Hillary Clinton is accompanied by the blaring headline “NO WONDER BILL’S AFRAID.” More

Oscars, you’ve got your work cut out for you: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it at the Golden Globes last night. Their opening monologue (er, dialogue?) was filled with genuine LOLs, and the ceremony itself lived up to the loopy promise of an awards show at which tables are stocked with champagne. Jodie Foster came out of the closet! Bill Clinton appeared from nowhere! Jennifer Lawrence bragged, “I beat Meryl!” (Click through to watch the full opening monologue.) More
A screenplay about a 20-something Hillary Clinton titled Rodham is making the rounds in Hollywood, and according to a new poll of film executives, everyone wants to get their hands on it. The screenplay’s angle is that it depicts young HRC “trying to decide between her career and boyfriend.” It includes a scene in which she applies makeup and sings “You’re So Vain.” Oh dear. Is strong, sensible Hillary Clinton turning into a simpering romantic comedy heroine? More
If men were not allowed to vote in the upcoming presidential election, President Obama would probably be sleeping in today, in anticipation of a landslide victory of historic proportions. Likewise, if only men were allowed to vote (like they were less than 100 years ago, fun!), Obama might be spending the morning getting a head start on packing up the Oval Office. The presidential election is on track to display one of the widest gender gaps in American political history. More
We read this morning that Bill Clinton’s one-time intern and paramour Monica Lewinsky is shopping around a juicy tell-all memoir about her short-lived relationship with the then-president. The New York Post reports that Lewinsky, who turns 40 next year (feeling old?) could get $12 million for writing the book (feeling poor?). I can’t lie, I’m eager to hear Lewinsky’s side of the sordid story that resulted in the first presidential impeachment since Andrew Johnson. But there are other women whose tell-all memoirs I’d rather read first. More
Hillary Clinton couldn’t be there in person when her husband delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention last night, but she caught his performance on television. The State Department released a photo of the secretary of state beaming while watching his speech from the home of the US ambassador to East Timor, 9,963 miles away from Charlotte, North Carolina. I don’t know if “women” as a monolithic group can “have it all,” but Hillary Clinton sure can. More
Hillary Clinton’s popularity hit a 20-year high a few weeks ago, and she’s had a whirlwind year of cultural coolness, but that doesn’t mean she’s thinking about running for president again. She told an audience this weekend that while she wants to see a female president in her lifetime, it won’t be her. Come on, Hillary, pleeeeeeease?
