Proposed: Hillary Clinton Should Become an Actress
I’ve been chuckling, for years, at Leno’s & Letterman’s jokes at the expense of Hillary Clinton — about pantsuits and frigidity and all that. But in reality, as I view the person she has turned out to be, I think she’s a consummate actress. I don’t say that critically or disparagingly. I mean to say she has the face and demeanor of someone who could turn in a compelling performance on film.
If she doesn’t wind up as vice president, she won’t be a major force in the Senate. She doesn’t have enough seniority or, apparently, enough friends there for that. There’s even a risk she will lose re-election; that happens, sometimes, to those who reach for the stars and fail. I hate to see someone with her talents (and even with her ability to stir up controversy) simply wither away. She’s had a remarkable run so far, as former first ladies go; why stop now?
