Hillary Clinton surely has a very long history with politics in the United States and as a veteran who was this close to defeating Donald Trump in the last presidential election, she’s rooting really hard for her fellow Democrats, and furthermore, she’s rooting even harder for a female president in the White House as she says: “I came close, I won the popular vote and was very honored to be the Democratic nominee,” Clinton said. “But I really want to see a woman president.”

For now, Hillary Clinton has not yet endorsed anyone from the Democratic Party as her presidential nominee, but as a veteran, she had some advice to give to the party as a whole as she said in her interview with Variety on Wednesday night: “My hope — and certainly my advice — is that the Democratic Party unite behind whoever the nominee is.” “The most important thing for our country, not just for the Democrats — all Americans — is to defeat Donald Trump. That’s what I’m going to be working toward.”

With that aside, Hillary Clinton has been able to kick back and take a very bold step away from politics to embark into something else. At the Director’s Guild Theater in New York she joined Director Nanette Burstein for the premiere of a docuseries based on her person titled “Hillary”, which is a four-part Hulu documentary. “Hillary” gives viewers an in-depth and real image of her person, as a former First Lady, a former Secretary of State and also as the 2016 presidential nominee for the Democratic Party. The entire series covers everything pertaining to her life, career, triumphs, and struggles — like how she and her husband managed through the Monica Lewinsky scandal and impeachment trial, amongst other things. 

She describes the experience of making “Hillary” “a gratifying experience” as her encounter with the director who according to her “understood the complexity of her life and the lives of women over the past 50 or 60 years and our politics” was a deep and intense moment. The docuseries cover additional interviews of the director with other persons like Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Barack Obama and other figures who have followed her career. 

On the part of the director the time spent with Hillary gave him a new perspective of her person as he said: “I learned there is a very real and human and complicated person behind the media figure, the figure we admire, we vilify, she’s a very complicated human who has had enormous challenges in her life. I hope people get a sense of who the real person is.”

On the red carpet for the premiers she was all smiles, granting interviews, taking pictures and feeling happy. With all that going on Hillary is still set to speak later in March at the annual film festival in Austin, Texas – South by Southwest. Although many companies will not be available due to the general concerns about Coronavirus, Hillary is still set on going. 

With the ongoing political state in the country she was quite happy with the turnout on Super Tuesday, which took place the day before her premiere in Manhattan. She commended voters’ turnout alongside the efforts of Joe Biden and his surge in the polls. When she was asked if she has contemplated being the running mate of Joe should he secure the ticket, her answers were clear:  “Oh I’m not even thinking about that, I was very pleased that we had a huge turnout, people are really focused on beating Trump, and that’s what they should be focused on.”
