Celebrating Glamour's "Women of the Year 2008:" Glamour magazine honored Hillary Clinton at this year's "Glamour Women of the Year 2008" Awards ceremony this week in New York. Entertainment Tonight caught up with Senator Clinton, America Ferrera and others. According to America Ferrera:
"This has been a wonderful year for women and I think, you know, in large part due to Senator Clinton and I'm always honored to be in her company and I'm very honored to be here today." Watch the segment here.
Glamour calls Hillary Clinton "The Trailblazer," writing: This year Hillary Clinton did something very rare for a politician: She won while losing. No, she didn't reach the White Houseâ€”but she motivated a new generation of women of every political stripe. Read more here.
Busy in the Senate: Senator Clinton held a conference call Tuesday calling for a comprehensive new stimulus package to jumpstart the ailing economy.
In a letter to President Bush and Senate leaders, Senator Clinton outlined a series of measures that would protect those Americans hit hardest by the recession and put the nation on the road to recovery, including: extending unemployment insurance benefits, providing assistance to financially strapped cities and states to prevent cuts to critical services, and investments in infrastructure and alternative energy projects that could quickly provide hundreds of thousands of new jobs while laying the foundation for future economic expansion.
Today in Albany, Senator Clinton also called for a new national commitment to revitalizing the nation's infrastructure and expanding and improving mass transit systems. Delivering remarks at the New York State Public Transit Industry Fall Conference, Senator Clinton urged support for a sweeping new plan to improve existing transit systems, expand public transportation to areas that currently have limited access, and overhaul the process by which public transit is planned and financed.
Transitioning: HillPAC's Executive Director and Social Secretary during the Clinton Administration, Capricia Marshall, appeared frequently on TV this week discussing the First Family transition. Watch her discuss the transition with Wolf Blitzer here.
206 Votes in Minnesota: Senator Clinton e-mailed her supporters today re-emphasizing the importance of the recount in Minnesota and sending Al Franken to the Senate:
Just 206 votes. That's the difference separating Al Franken and Norm Coleman in the Minnesota Senate race -- 206 votes out of about 3 million cast.
In the coming days, Minnesota officials will carefully count every vote to make sure they get the most accurate count possibleâ€¦
This time we're ready. The Franken Campaign is working hard to make sure every vote is counted -- but they need our helpâ€¦
Help make sure this important election is decided fairly -- contribute today to Al Franken's campaign.
Virginia 2009: Clinton Campaign Chairman Terry McAuliffe announced this week that he would explore the opportunity of running for Virginia Governor in 2009. Terry's wife, Dorothy, sent the following email yesterday:
As you may know, Terry's been contemplating a run for governor of Virginia for some time now. And this week, he officially kicked off a two-month long process of touring the Commonwealth in order to initiate a conversation with fellow Virginians.
He'll make a final decision about whether to run for governor in early January.
That decision will be based in large part on what kind of enthusiasm is out there for his candidacy.
Honoring Our Veterans: Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton made the following statement marking Veterans Day:
"Today I join all Americans in honoring the brave men and women who have worn the uniform in service to our nation. These men and women have given so much for all of us. We owe them our freedom, our respect, and our gratitude demonstrated in our words and deeds. Veterans are veterans for life and they and their families deserve the support and services they have earned. That is why I have fought to improve veterans health care and to streamline the benefits claim process, and why I will continue to be a champion for veterans in the Senate. We must serve them as they have served all of us. Let us pay our respect today as we recommit ourselves to this solemn duty every day."
"These men and women are the best this nation has to offer, and they deserve to be treated as the best. We need to be there with open arms when our veterans need our support, and we must continue to stand with them over the years. For all of these reasons, I continue to work on a variety of initiatives, including health care and beyond, to support and honor our veterans and their loved ones."
