Hillary Clinton Urges Women Not to Take Any Shit

Illustration for article titled Hillary Clinton Urges Women Not to Take Any Shit

After being introduced by Meryl Streep, the woman who will probably play her in a biopic, Hillary Clinton closed the third annual Women in the World summit at the Lincoln Center in New York on Saturday with a call for women in the United States to set an example for women across the world in asserting their right to make their own choices, a right, she explain, which forms the cornerstone of any democracy.

Clinton said that male extremists, both abroad and, gasp, here, are always looking for ways to control women, adding that this fixation remains "a mystery" to her She told the audience that they had to "stand up for women's rights and reject efforts to marginalize" any individual woman, efforts that certain extremists in the U.S., a supposed vanguard of democratic lip service, are trying to turn into a recreational sport.

I love this woman.

Shocking: my card carrying GOP dad suddenly thinks she should be president. I swear to Jebus he said "the DNC should ask Obama to step aside & not run in 2012. They should run Hilary. I think she'd make a great president."

I made him repeat it. I couldn't believe what I was hearing.

When I avidly supported her 2008 run he told me I was nuts & she was far too polarizing to EVER be Pres or VP.

Commence Liz Lemon eyeroll.
