Interviewed on the BBC Newsnight programme last night — more commonly the haunt of Cabinet ministers trying to explain their position on Iraq — Madonna used the opportunity to address some of these issues — and throw her hat into the ring for a Hillary Rodham Clinton presidency. “I wouldn’t mind if Hillary Clinton was president, yeah.”
Does it strike anyone else here as ironic that the same Madonna who filmed videos too sexually explicit for MTV and kissed Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears on television is supporting a presidential candidate who put forward a bill to restrict the sale of video games after the "Hot Coffee" debacle?
On a side note, I was just noticing today that Clinton's done a remarkable job of positioning herself for a presidential run. She's on the Senate committees for armed services (in terrorism related subcommitties) and the committee for environment and public works. Having been a New York Senator during 9/11 doesn't hurt a lot either. She was one of the more vocal people trying to get a committee started to investigate Katrina in addition.
While I still believe she's not a great candidate, she does have one other piece of the puzzle -- she opposed the Iraq war but is against immediate withdrawal before the mission is really completed.
