This is a fantastic profile of Hillary Clinton, and her life post-election, written by Rebecca Traister for New York Magazine. If there was something that I really came to appreciate about Mrs. Clinton throughout her campaign, it would be her dry sense of humor. I think this paragraph from the piece perfectly captures how funny she can be. I have to admit that it had me laughing out loud.
There’s a lot of gallows humor around Clinton these days. Waiting for Cuomo at La Guardia, she was talking about what it’d been like looking back on all the editorial endorsements she got during the campaign, some from even conservative papers. “I want to be buried with my editorial endorsements,” she said with a laugh. “I want an open casket and they can all be piled on top of me. You won’t even be able to see my body.” Abedin and Merrill joined in. “I can’t seem to get a last look at Hillary, but here’s the Cleveland Plain Dealer!” shouted Merrill, imagining the funeral.
