Creepy Is Just 5 Degrees Off Folksy
In case you missed it, Hillary Clinton turns 60 tomorrow. Her campaign has been celebrating for the last few days and today broadcasts this message from campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle.
Here's one of my favorite stories about celebrating Hillary's birthday.
It was her first birthday as First Lady. After all the talk of her changing hairstyles during the campaign, the staff thought it would be funny to surprise her by dressing up as different "Hillarys" -- there was Headband Hillary, Campaign Hillary, Lawyer Hillary, Short-Hair Hillary. I was the 1992 Democratic Convention Hillary -- with the sassy haircut.
I prefer the 1984 Hillary myself.
Is this meant to further "humanize" the candidate? I'm not sure how many Americans identify with birthday bashes in which their staff all dress up as their various manufactured public personae...
This year, rumor has it the campaign staffers are dressing up as Hillary's different positions on the Iraq war -- hawkish Hillary, peacenik Hillary, duped-by-the-President Hillary, date certain Hillary, equivocal Hillary, fence-riding Hillary, hawkish again Hillary, etc.
It's a good thing she's got a bigger staff now than she did as First Lady.
