Hillary Clinton a Driving Force? Not So Much, but She's in Great Company.

At the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans today to keynote the closing session of the NADA Convention, Hillary Clinton told the auto dealers that she has not driven a car since 1996.  It does not mean she is not "connected."  It only means she is protected.  Others as well (for those who know). 


She reminded me of another brilliant, beautiful, astonishing, and accomplished blonde who avoids driving if she can help it.   As Queen Elizabeth,  Helen Mirren appeared quite competent behind the wheel and reminded the groundskeeper at Balmoral that she was a mechanic during World War II.  As Helen,  she negotiated her lap elegantly and earned a top score, but she looked miserable behind the wheel on the British version of  Top Gear in 2008.  She admitted that she does not really like cars much and that her first car exploded.

Well, when you have the pedigrees these two ladies possess, other people are happy to chauffeur you around (I would).  While they are separated by one degree several times over,  my favorite is that Helen became Dame of the British Empire in 2003, the same year as Jane Goodall.   Hillary and Dr. Goodall both received honorary degrees from Scotland's St. Andrews University at the same ceremony last September.

On a somber note, Hillary spoke about Benghazi.  If I am not mistaken, this is her first public statement about it since leaving the State Department last February.

About 2016.
