Flashback: Vogue for Hillary

This is a simulacrum of Hillary Clinton by Annie Lebovitz.

No surprise that the ultra leftist elitists of Vogue endorsed Hillary.

But then let’s not forget that Vogue published a glowing article about the awesomely chic Asma al-Assad of Syria, which in full Orwellian overdrive, Vogue scrubbed from their website when the mass killings started soon after publication.

We saved the February 25, 2011, Joan Juliet Buck article, “Asma al-Assad: A Rose of the Desert”.

Read it. If you have the stomach.

So much for Vogue’s political judgement.

Anyway, here’s Vogue’s Hillary endorsement, which is hilarious, especially this qualifier: “We understand that Clinton has not always been a perfect candidate…”

For all the chaos and unpredictability and the sometimes appalling spectacle of this election season, the question of which candidate actually deserves to be president has never been a difficult one.

Vogue has no history of political endorsements. Editors in chief have made their opinions known from time to time, but the magazine has never spoken in an election with a single voice. Given the profound stakes of this one, and the history that stands to be made, we feel that should change.

Vogue endorses Hillary Clinton for president of the United States.

Perhaps that sentence won’t come as a surprise. Vogue has enthusiastically covered Hillary Clinton’s career, her rise from Yale law student to governor’s wife to First Lady to senator to Secretary of State. She has been profiled by the magazine six times.

(For the record, we have also featured Donald Trump—or, more particularly, his family members Ivana, Marla, Melania, and Ivanka—multiple times in our pages.)

We understand that Clinton has not always been a perfect candidate, yet her fierce intelligence and considerable experience are reflected in policies and positions that are clear, sound, and hopeful.

She supports comprehensive immigration reform, including a path to citizenship. She speaks up for racial justice, for reforming policing and sentencing laws. Her years as Secretary of State have shown that she understands how to strengthen alliances abroad, respond to global crises, and continue American leadership in the world. She is forceful in her support for LGBTQ rights, including an end to discrimination against transgender people. She knows the challenges working women face. Her tax proposals and commitment to infrastructure investment will be a boon to the middle class. She will continue the important work on health-care reform begun by President Obama. She is a sane voice on guns.

Can Clinton unify a deeply divided America? Heal the wounds of this unbearably fraught political season? Our divisions are real, and it will take more than one intensely qualified leader to heal them.

And yet two words give us hope: Madam President. Women won the vote in 1920. It has taken nearly a century to bring us to the brink of a woman leading our country for the first time. Let’s put this election behind us and become the America we want to be: optimistic, forward-looking, and modern.

Let’s head to the polls on Tuesday, November 8, and vote.

Comment Rules


Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    “…her fierce intelligence”–is there ever a liberal who is not deemed “brilliant” by other liberals? She may be, she may not, but the left’s only qualification for that label is “one of us.”

    Speaking of Fake News, when did Hillary Clinton even vaguely resemble the Artist’s Rendering above?

      At first glance, I thought it was a photo of a well-known actress who’s name escapes me.
