From First Lady, to Senator, to Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton held many important positions throughout her political career!
But now she's evolved into something else entirely:
It's true, her Twitter account is verified and sending out tweets!
Will she tweet about foreign policy or Justin Bieber?! Senate votes or RHOBC?!
Ch-ch-check out her very first tweet for yourself …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Can this guy be any more perfect???
Former POTUS Bill Clinton has gained many accolades throughout the years, and now he'll be recognized for another one of his many achievements.
His parenting skills!
Mr. Clinton has been announced as an honoree of the 2013 Father Of The Year Award!
We were so impressed that Eva Longoria took time out of her busy acting career to focus on furthering her education with a recently-completed Masters Degree in Chicano and Chicana Studies from Cal State University Northridge, and apparently, so is the former President of the United States!
We were THRILLED when Jason Collins became the first openly gay and active athlete on a major American sports team — it was such a powerful moment for both Jason and the LGBT community, and the outpouring of support has been astounding!
“I have known Jason Collins since he was Chelsea’s classmate and friend at Stanford. Jason’s announcement today is an important moment for professional sports and in the history of the LGBT community. It is also the straightforward statement of a good man who wants no more than what so many of us seek: to be able to be who we are; to do our work; to build families and to contribute to our communities. For so many members of the LGBT community, these simple goals remain elusive. I hope that everyone, particularly Jason’s colleagues in the NBA, the media and his many fans extend to him their support and the respect he has earned.”
Uh, that's right — a former President is giving you props for being yourself! Amazeballz!
Here are some other people giving Jason verbal high-fives for being a brave pioneer for himself and the LGBT community in professional sports:
Jennifer Lawrence Honors President Clinton At The 2013 GLAAD Media Awards! All Of List Night's Winners HERE!
What an INCREDIBLE night!
The 2013 GLAAD Media Awards were held last night at the JW Marriott in El Lay, where the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Charlize Theron, Betty White, Darren Criss, and host Drew Barrymore honored films like Perks of Being A Wallflower, shows like The New Normal, and the former leader of the free world himself, Bill Clinton, for the advancements they've made toward promoting equality and progress for for the LGBT community!
And who better to introduce the ex-President with the Advocate for Change Award than the always HIGHlarious and charming J-Law?!
The Academy Award-winning starlet, who hit the stage Harvey Weinstein and First Daughter alum Chelsea Clinton, apparently flubbed Bill's name during her speech, but the Commander-in-Chief took it in stride, and while accepting his honor, even joked:
"I don't know why Harvey made Jennifer do that. She really was like 2-years-old when I became president. I met her backstage and she looked like she was touring the Museum of Natural History."
"It's sort of humbling when you get to be my age when your child knows more than you do about everything. Chelsea and her gay friends have modeled to me how we should all treat each other regardless of our sexual orientation or any other artificial difference that divides us. Many of them come and join us every Thanksgiving for a meal. I have grown very attached to them. And over the years, I was forced to confront the fact that people who oppose equal rights for gays in the marriage sphere are basically acting out of concern for their own identity, not out of respect for anyone else. You are the agents of change. I got this award tonight, because I was the object of your affection - or not, as the case may be. My daughter led me to support the marriage equality law in New York when we were debating it, and to oppose North Carolina's denial of marriage equality, and to do all these other things. So I want to thank her too. Thank you, GLAAD. Thank you, Chelsea."
We hope that the rest of the evening was filled with just as many laughs, good times, and a shared passion for progress!
Congratulations to all the winners, which are listed for your viewing pleasure, along with both Jennifer and President Clinton's speeches…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
