On Monday night Hillary Rodham Clinton toyed with the idea of getting herself a reality show. She was up on stage to present the Council of fashion Designers of America Founder’s Award, to Oscar de la Renta. She mused that everybody knew Project Runway, but she wanted Project Pantsuit. She joked about her great taste in fashion. It should be recognized, and an entire reality series has to be devoted to this. It was a great idea to get attention for this imaginary project that evening, because the show was hosted by Andy Cohen. (Cohen is the executive vice president of development, and talent at the Bravo cable television network, which airs Project Runway.) After Oscar de la Renta had received his award Andy Cohen returned to the stage and said: “Project Pantsuit is totally a go!” It really, does look like Hillary Rodham Clinton got her reality show approved, but does it mean it will get into production?
If Project Pantsuit won’t be possible, then it would still be a great idea for Hillary to get her own reality show. Some of the things she could show us would trump any episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians. Because wouldn’t you wanted to have seen…
…Bill Clinton calling Obama ‘incompetent’ and an ‘amateur’, and later signing a secret deal with Obama to get Hillary Rodham elected in 2016. Hillary then schmoozing with Obama, and pretending that they had resolved all of their bitter rival issues?
Or wouldn’t you want to see…
…all kinds of actresses in the running of playing Hillary in her new biopic ‘Rodham’ ? We would get to see how it works to get a movie of the ground, and all the drama that surrounds it.
…What Rodham Clinton needs to do in order to get elected as president. Oscar de la Renta can’t wait to see that happen. He said on Monday: “I hope that she is going to be our next president.” If her reality show gets approved, we would have a front row seat. Would it be similar to The Ides of March or more like Primary Colors all over again? Would she beat fictional character Josiah Bartlet, the president from the West Wing?
She could take this advice from Bartlet to heart “There it is. That’s the ten word answer my staff’s been looking for for two weeks. There it is. Ten-word answers can kill you in political campaigns. They’re the tip of the sword. Here’s my question: What are the next ten words of your answer? Your taxes are too high? So are mine. Give me the next ten words. How are we going to do it? Give me ten after that, I’ll drop out of the race right now. Every once in a while… every once in a while, there’s a day with an absolute right and an absolute wrong, but those days almost always include body counts. Other than that, there aren’t very many unnuanced moments in leading a country that’s way too big for ten words. I’m the President of the United States, not the President of the people who agree with me. And by the way, if the left has a problem with that, they should vote for somebody else.”
…all the lavish parties Hillary Rodham gets invited to? All the celebrities she meets, famous faces and people who actually matter? Wouldn’t it be great to really feel like we are part of it all. Like politics, it is not something people come up with along the way? That they actually care about we the people, and that a female president might be the best of all. Let’s hope Hillary Rodham Clinton really gets her reality show approved. I will be the first to watch it, will you?
