Want To Dress Up As Hillary Clinton For Halloween? Here You Go!
Okay, for Halloween, I want to be the next president of the United States, or at least a smashing facsimile of her. What luck! Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton surprised me with a handful of options for Halloween costumes based upon different points in her exciting life. If you don’t like them, all I can say is blame Stephen Colbert.
He is the one who invited Clinton as the featured guest on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Tuesday. Colbert lifted a collection of costume ideas from her Snapchat account, where her campaign laid them out on her website. Colbert showed us his favorites, then he suggested the winning costume. He said that people should go as Secretary Clinton at the grinding, 11-hour Benghazi hearing on Capitol Hill last week. Ever the gifted comedian, he wisecracked people ought “to go the party anyway they want, but they have to stay for 11 hours.”

All you need are a mini-plaid jumper, a Peter Pan collar, and white knee socks.
OMG! I have a pair of pants exactly like these, and I’m still wearing them! Colbert said that her pants were “reminiscent of an acid trip.”
“Cold Shoulder” Hillary
Proof that the former Secretary of State is as elegant as she is smart.

“Women’s rights are human rights” Hillary
In 1995, at the U.N. Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, Hillary famously said:
“Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights.”
Twenty years later, we can have her look!
If you have an idea for a Hillary costume, share it in the comments, so we can enjoy it, too.
