Hillary: Looking the part

We had a great photo of Hillary Clinton in the newspaper today, posted here, too. Hillary, as always, is still criticized for how she looks. Publisher Tina Brown kind of called her fat a couple of years ago. And her hairstyle is always a focus. Too young. Too old.

To me, Hillary is looking like the women of her age I've seen in Europe in trips there. Not afraid to be solid in her body, because she is solid in her place in the world. Figuring out the easiest hairstyle, because she's busy. And enjoying herself most of the time, despite the hard work she's doing in the world.

As women, our lives get written on our bodies from day 1. Other people often try to write that story, especially in the teen and young adult years. Hillary's writing her own story now. And it shows.
