Maybe the game is not over after all. Even with those shiny arms exposed at every opportunity, Hillary's replacement rarely makes a fashion misstep. But when she does make one, it's a doozy.
Two days ago, I sadly gave up my Hillary watching. One day ago, I had to endure looking at a classic and elegant choice on a woman who wears clothes well. Today - heaven has repaid me for my patience.
Take one part Will And Grace
Debbie Reynolds had a recurring role on this TV show as Grace's mother, a star of local dinner theater in upstate NY. She made her mark doing well-known plays with the lead character adapted for a woman. Notable among these were Professor Carol Hill in "The Music Person" and Millie Loman in "Death of A Saleswoman"
Add one part Thornbirds
Richard Chamberlain as naughty Father Ralph lusts after his young ward but is torn between his carnal passion and his ambition to rise in church politics. He is unable to choose between them because he wants both and neither one exactly suits him. In one scene, he is taking off his vestments after celebrating Mass and his collar, the symbol of his priesthood, gets stuck and won't come off. He furiously claws at it and calls out: "This is choking me. I can't breathe. I can't get out of this." (I paraphrase.)
And what have you got?
Here we see the presumptive First Lady dressed according to societal convention and someone else's expectations of what a presumptive First Lady's wardrobe should be. She angrily demands that someone get this thing off her neck or else she's going to choke somebody.
Oh, yeah. I think we'll be okay without Hillary.
