It has been hush-hush ever since her mother first recognized her abilities. Being smart as a whip, a Yale graduate, a lawyer, and a gifted politician have all had little to do with her successes.

Some say Obama himself had Natalie Portman do his dirty work and sell Hillary on the shorter 2008 ‘do (I mean Hillary’s hair was so short she couldn’t have possibly kept a thought in her head) and then he had Ashley Judd step in when he needed Hillary back in top form for Secretary of State. “Tell her it makes her look younger.

It’s a good thing that glass ceiling is so thick. Hillary can use it as a mirror, because God knows short hair is a lot of work.
