Hillary Clinton's Hair Clip: Hot or Not?

Sometimes, I really feel sorry for Hillary Clinton.

Our secretary of state never claimed to be a beauty queen. She simply set out to become a politician, and managed to achieve the highest level of success in her field (short of the presidency).

So why can't people stop talking about her looks?

Clinton's latest hair clip, which she wore during a meeting on Sunday with Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere at the U.N. headquarters, is causing a stir across the blogosphere, as the fashion police attempt to "bust" Madame Secretary for her apparent fashion faux pas.

The New York Daily News called the hairstyle -- an up-and-down 'do in which both sides were pulled up into one of those grabby clips -- a "more severe" look than Clinton usually wears. Many Huffington Post readers found it "too casual" for a U.N. appearance. And The Daily Mail said it simply "doesn't cut it."

"Mrs. Clinton’s hair was scraped back and clipped on top of her head, but looked lank and in need of some love and understanding," the British tabloid wrote.

But at least one media insider -- Kathie Lee Gifford, who can certainly relate to being made fun of -- jumped to her defense.

"She's busy and hair is not first on her list," Gifford said on the "Today" show.

Bravo, Kathie Lee! It's about time someone pointed out the obvious. Who cares what Hillary Clinton looks like? Does anyone critique Barack Obama for his choice of attire (other than that one pair of "mom jeans")?

Let the woman do her job without having to worry about looking like a fashion plate every day. And as a matter of fact, I think she looks quite pretty for a 62-year-old.

    One needs to be pleased that at least it’s not an instance of Captain Clinton getting it on with one of the Alpha Phi interns, cause if she were we’d quickly wish she was just wearing some annoying blue plastic chopsticks like a Japanese Samurai lord.

  • rolliby 2010/09/22 07:09:04
    Hot: She looks fine.
    People can't stop talking about her looks because that is what advertising, fashion, Tyra and Maxim has done to the American mindset.

    It is OUR minds that are unfocused because of "looks". You ought to be concerned about what they are planning to do to YOU in those meetings.

    But, the plan works as usual. Distract you with trivial things - while they plan your demise and people watch tv and gossip about how so-and-so looks......geez.

    Is she looking for a new style for her 2012 run for the WH
  • biggerman 2010/09/22 06:20:03 (edited)
    I dislike her politics and my wife can't stand her but, she doesn't look that bad. The reality is, her looks are irrelavant and it takes away from the credibility of the conservative message to find fault with people for superfluous reasons. We need to rise above the temptation to make ad hominem attacks on people and just stick to the issues. She's in her 60's, her husband is a philandering piece of crap, and her marriage is a sham - give her a break.

    Tricia ~ Hope trumps hate!
    Why should anyone care whether her hair is hot or not?

    I think the fact that people are talking about her hair instead of the content of the meeting she was attending says so much more about how far we haven't come in this country than it says anything about this very successful woman!

    Roundabout ~ Pepe is my sock puppet
    I don't care if it's hot. I just care if it's appropriate for the culture/person she's negotiating with. It's a lot of work to do hair for photo ops especially when you have to carry everything with you including the hairstylist. It would be so easy if she could do what many men do and that is just change the comb length on their razors and just shaver her head!! Hey I'm a republican but this isn't worth much.

    What is it with these Liberal Progressive Women.

    The way they dress and fix their hair is appalling. It should be ILLEGAL !

    Other than Hillary and shebama, I didn't recognize any of the others---except for Ayn Rand. You don't forget the face of pure hatred once you've seen it; not easily, at least.

    A neocon isn't a party affiliation.
