The First Blush of Pro-Hillary Pride in People Magazine

April 17th, 2015 10:06 PM

The April 27 issue of People magazine includes two goopy mentions of Hillary Clinton. On the “Passages” page, the headline is “Hillary Clinton: It’s On!” The caption under Hillary’s picture read: “Clinton, 67, would be America’s first woman president.”

They quoted the first tweet: “Everyday Americans need a chamipon, and I want to be that champion. –H”. They quoted superfans: “’I didn’t know in my lifetime a woman president would be so possible,’ marveled Carol Conklin-Spillane, 56, a high school principal with a cameo in Clinton’s video.”

The brief story ended with a quote from Marco Rubio calling her “a leader from yesterday.”

On People’s page 1, there was a picture of HBO Girls creator/star Lena Dunham with her nebbishy rock-musician boyfriend Jack Antonoff and the Obamas: “I would [be] very very proud to call Hillary our president, just as I have loved having this brilliant male feminist in office.”
