Save the date Montreal, because Hillary Rodham Clinton, one of the world's most famous politicians is coming to Montreal. The former U.S. Secretary of State, and potential future president, will speak at the Palais des Congrès de Montreal on March 18th, from 6:30-7:30 pm, included in the Board of Trade's "Bell International Leaders" Series. Expect plenty of truth-bombs and political badassery as Hill-dog tells Montreal what's up, in the informative and forceful style that had made her a feminist icon.
Hillary Clinton first gained notoriety as the First Lady, during Bill Clinton's presidency (who can forget the Monica Lewinsky debacle?), but has since moved out of her husband's shadow and into the international limelight. The presidential hopeful is a woman not afraid to voice her opinion against worldwide issues regarding violence, discrimination, and free expression, and you won't want to miss her in person. Maybe she'll even allude to the 2016 election...only one way to find out Montreal.
March 18th is a ways a away, so to tide you over on Hillary-action, here are some of Hilary's finest moments.
When She Texted @ Texts From Hillary
Texts From Hillary was a hilariuos blog featuring fan-made text exchanges between Hillary Clinton and other celebrities and politicians. Hillary was basically a badass in all of them (shutting down Lady Gaga and everyone else like a pro), and in April 2012 Hillary sent a real text to the actual creators! A woman who can appreciate a joke, gotta love it.
Why Women Are Important
Taking the reigns on the Clinton Global Initiative, Hillary gave an awesome speech at the organizations summit in Chicago this past June. Commenting on the formal renaming of the organization to reflect the inclusion of herself and her daughter Chelsea, Clinton commented:
When women participate in politics it ripples out to the entire society… Women are the world’s most underused resource.
So much truth.
The Hillary Selfie
You can't hate on selfies when its a mom and daughter shot, especially when the mom is Hillary Clinton. Coolest mom ever? I'd give it a yes.
Clinton was Coderring before it was even a thing! Playfully winking at a committee member during a hearing on the Law of the Sea Convention, Clinton inadvertently created the mayor of Montreal's signature look.
Even though she is a world leader and powerful voice in global politics, Hillary can still let loose and unwind like us regular folk. While at the VI Summit of the Americas, Hillary didn't let the hot Colombian night go to waste, and drank and danced like a rockstar.
When This Happened
Don't know where this is from, nor does it allude to Hillary's illustrious career as a politician, but it sure as hell is awesome and hilarious. Twerk it Hillary.
