I’m going to try to leave the Hilary Clinton comparisons out of this and stick to the already publicized spoilers. Leading lady Elaine Barrish Hammond (Sigourney Weaver) is, quite frankly, badass in the USA network's newest show, Political Animals. She’s smart and wears a burgundy jumpsuit like nobody's business.
