Hillary: ‘Talent is universal’; Chelsea shows absurdity is hereditary


The Clinton Global Initiative put two of the many women in Bill Clinton’s life on stage to talk about “Reimagining Impact,” whatever that means. Just pick two buzzwords out of a hat why don’t you. Dare to reimagine: Hillary Clinton offers ‘profound’ vision for leadership [Vine]

“Empowering women” was part of the discussion. Who better to talk about empowering women than a woman who rose to political power by riding her husband’s coattails and one who achieved immediate professional success by being their daughter?

Having traveled the world as Sec State, Hillary Clinton said she's learned that "talent is universal, but "opportunity is not."

Talent is not universal, no matter how many participation trophies you hand out. Hasn’t she heard of Nickelback?

@redsteeze Perfect reaction. Ne'er has a gif so well embodied a proper response as this.

@redsteeze See? Totally not out of touch. Same worries shared by working families, you guys.

But let’s talk about empowering elephants, because it’s not as if African nations are facing any sort of other problems right now.

Clinton women on stage at CGI. Hillary and Chelsea spotlight plight of African elephants. The threat, Chelsea says, is "existential."

NY – Chelsea Clinton says she worries that her new baby could grow up in a world without African elephants.

@PeterNicholas3 @SouthernKeeks With the speed Ebola is now spreading, her child may have to grow up in a world without Africans….

I know how she feels. I'm devastated that I grew up in a world without Saber Toothed Tigers. @PeterNicholas3

@georgejmichaels @PeterNicholas3 @WSJPolitics Very embarrassing. She should hope her baby grows up with freedoms.

@PeterNicholas3 This insight shows why NBC News paid her $26,724 per minute she was on the air.
