The controversial Russian pop duo Pussy Riot posed with Clinton backstage at Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit last week, and it renewed my faith in humanity.  Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina of ...

In a recent New York Magazine article entitled “Hillary in Midair,” she comes off as refreshingly normal.   “We get to be at home together a lot more now than we used to in the last few years,” says Clinton of her family. “We ...

  Hillary Clinton’s been pretty much perfect since High School. So it’s no surprise that Clinton’s using her free time to advocate on behalf of LGBTQ rights and marriage equality. While any other recently retired Secretary of State might have peaced out on an awesome vacation or taken a really long nap, Hillary recorded this video for the Human Rights Campaign instead. In the video, she cites a phrase she used during her time as Secretary of ... Read More
