“Rodham,” a movie about the younger years of former First Lady, senator and secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton is due out some time around the 2016 presidential election.

The Independent:  “Among those in the running to play the 26-year-old Clinton are Amanda Seyfried, who starred in Les Misérables,  Zero Dark Thirty‘s Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon, and Scarlett Johansson, most recently seen playing Janet Leigh in Hitchcock.

The film’s script, written by Young il-Kim, made last year’s “Black List”, which highlights Hollywood’s best unrealised scripts. Having been leaked by The Daily Beast earlier this month, it attracted attention for its racier scenes. But Kim told The Daily Telegraph: “I didn’t write 50 Shades of Rodham, as some news outlets are suggesting. I am a boring prude with little imagination.”

Asked whether the final draft would include sex scenes, Mr Kim replied: “It’s an evolving process so I don’t know. She was an attractive 26-year-old with an amazing future. And that’s our thematic focus.”

“Rodham” will focus on 1974 when Hillary Clinton was a Washington lawyer. No matter what you think about Hillary Clinton, you can’t dispute the fact that she worked hard and she showed a deep dedication to her cause.

Right Wing Radio Show Host Pete Santilli Wants to Shoot Hillary Clinton in V*gina

The right wingnuts are on a roll.  Conservative radio talk show host Pete Santilli says Hillary Clinton should be “tried, convicted and shot in the vagina.” SMH.

On his show last week, Pete Santilli went on a disgusting, violent rant in which he called for the entire Bush family and President Obama to be “tried, convicted and shot” for “treason” (and in George H.W. Bush’s case “involvement with his cronies in the John F. Kennedy assassination”) and for Hillary Clinton to be “tried, convicted and shot in the vagina.”

He then went on to describe in graphic detail how he personally wanted to “pull the trigger” on Clinton – who he repeatedly referred to with a sexual slur – and watch her slowly die in revenge for what he believes was the faking of SEAL Team Six’s Bin Laden raid.

Hillary Clinton Unveils New Website, Laying Groundwork for 2016?

Is Hillary Clinton laying the groundwork for a 2016 presidential run? It’s also interesting to note there’s some buzz about DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano having presidential ambitions.

Talking Points Memo:  Hillary Clinton appears to have a new website. So far, has a picture of the former secretary of state and a form for contacting her.

ReadyforHillary SuperPAC Spearheaded by Two Veteran Hillary Clinton Fundraisers

Here we go, a Hillary Clinton SuperPAC is taking off, just as she’s set to leave the Secretary of State position. It’s interesting that we’re looking to 2016 already, only a week into President Obama’s second term.

ReadyForHillary launches a splash page next Monday at its website, Allida Black and Judy Beck, two veteran Clinton fundraisers, are spearheading the new organization. They recruited Adam Parkhomeko, who helped launch a “Draft Hillary” movement in 2003 and was later hired by the campaign, to corral the far-flung vestiges of the Clinton campaign organization. NGP Software, which designed the Clinton campaign website in 2008, has been hired by the PAC.

Several former Clinton campaign staffers are offering input and suggestions. The PAC has no formal affiliation with Clinton or any of her top aides.

The first inklings of the new organization came late last year, when a @ReadyForHillary Twitter handle began to follow Democratic activists and political reporters. Source

President Obama on ’60 Minutes’ Interview with Hillary Clinton: I Wanted to “Publicly Say Thank You”

“Well, the main thing is I just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you, because I think Hillary will go down as one of the finest secretaries of state we’ve had. It has been a great collaboration over the last four years.”

— President Obama’s reason for joint 60 Minutes interview with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Sounds like he’s passing the torch to Hillary Clinton in 2016. He will be in a tough spot as to who to back should Hillary Clinton really throw her hat in the ring for the presidency, considering Vice President Joe Biden has expressed some interest in running in 2016.

Did Hillary Clinton Suffer Double Vision from Concussion and Blood Clot?

Did Hillary Clinton Suffer Double Vision from Concussion and Blood Clot?

HILLARY CLINTON DOUBLE VISION:  Is Hillary Clinton seeing double? The New York Daily News reports that close ups of the outgoing Secretary of State taken during her Senate testimony on the Benghazi consulate attack revealed that she may be seeing double.

As she testified about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, the secretary of state appeared to have tiny vertical lines etched onto the left lens of her new brown specs.

Clinton’s spokesman confirmed Thursday night she is wearing the glasses as a result of the fall and concussion she suffered last month, but he did not elaborate.

Experts told the Daily News that Clinton likely has a Fresnel prism placed on her glasses. The adhesive panel is used to treat double vision. Source

The Daily Intelligencer reports a Clinton spokesperson confirmed that she will “be wearing these glasses instead of her contacts for a period of time because of lingering issues stemming from her concussion.”

For all those right wingnuts who mocked her, including the New York Post, should be ashamed of themselves.

Rand Paul to Hillary Clinton: You Accept ‘Culpability For The Worst Tragedy Since 9/11’

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a Senate hearing that if he were the president at the time of the Benghazi consulate attack, he would have fired her, adding that “I think it’s inexcusable.” He also said her stepping down indicates that she accepts “the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11.” Um, I am guessing the Newtown school massacre doesn’t count. How come he was so quiet when on Condoleezza Rice’s role in the mess in Iraq?

Hillary Clinton leaves behind an impressive 20-year history in Washington D.C. and I scarcely believe what happened in Benghazi, as unfortunate as it was, will derail any presidential aspirations she may have for 2016.

Chelsea Clinton Tweets Thank You to NY Presbyterian Hospital After Hillary Clinton Released

Outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was released from New York Presbyterian Hospital where she was admitted for a blood clot in a vein between her brain and skull. Well, the right wing haters continue their conspiracy theories, all a disgrace.

BREAKING NEWS:  Hillary Clinton has a blood clot lodged between her brain and skull. The blood clot is located behind her right ear. Hillary Clinton reportedly suffered no stroke or neurological damage

The clot is located in the vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. Clinton’s doctors say that to help dissolve the clot, they are treating her with blood thinners. They say she will be released once the medication dose has been established. Source

Here’s more from the NY Daily News:

“In the course of a routine follow-up MRI on Sunday, the scan revealed that a right transverse sinus venous thrombosis had formed,” said Dr. Lisa Bardack and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi in a statement released by the State Department. “This is a clot in the vein that is situated in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear. It did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage.”

The statement went on to say that her medical team is using blood thinners to dissolve the clot and that she is making “excellent progress.” They also expressed confidence she will make a “full recovery.”

“She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family, and her staff,” the statement said.

This news comes as a new Gallup poll gives her the title of the “most admired woman” in the world, with 21 percent selecting her. First Lady Michelle Obama came in a distant second at five percent, followed by Oprah Winfrey at four percent and Condoleezza Rice with three percent.

We wish Mrs. Clinton a speedy recovery. I hope all those right wing haters who claim she was evading testimony before Congress on the Benghazi consulate attack should be ashamed of themselves.

NBC News Reporter Robert Bazell Raises Questions Hillary Clinton Blood Clot May Not Be Related to Concussion

Despite an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton releasing a statement saying she is hospitalized due to a blood clot stemming from a concussion, the questions continue to swirl. Why hasn’t a statement been released by the New York Presbyterian Hospital?

The top science reporter for NBC News raised questions Monday about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s hospitalization, raising the possibility the blood clot causing isn’t linked to an earlier concussion.“It’s not exactly clear what is happening with Secretary Clinton’s health,” NBC News chief science and health correspondent Robert Bazell said.

“All we have is a statement from her office. The hospital isn’t saying anything and the statement from her [office] says that she had this blood clot that stemmed from the concussion and she’s being treated with blood-thinning drugs,” Bazell continued. “The problem is that usually when blood clots come from concussions, they can’t be treated with blood [thinners.] So either it’s not really related to the concussion and she’s got a blood clot in her leg or something, or there’s something else going on that we’re not being told. And right now, we’re just sort of seeking that clarification and hoping for the best as she’s being observed.” Source: Politico
