Secret Latina alert! Welcoming Hillary Clinton to the familia
Ok, Hillary Clinton has really got to stop being so darn cool all the time. First she was spotted texting wearing a seriously fierce pair of shades--a photo that eventually spawned the awesome Tumblr account: Texts from Hillary.
Then she found out about said account and created her OWN meme! which honestly, was almost as funny as the previous posts created by the Tumblr originators.
THEN, she had to go and kick back in Colombia and I'm so glad that SOMETHING positive has come out of this trip to the Summit of the Americas, because those Secret Service guys were clearly trying their absolute hardest to make all U.S. citizens look like a bunch of jack a@#%^ what with their whole prostitution scandal and what not. But no, not Hillary, she was having fun like the secret Latina she really is.

Alright fine, Hillary Clinton is not Latina at all, not even a little bit, but I can dream can't I? She's just so awesome and shares so many of our most fun characteristics!
Case in point: This past weekend while the dudes who protect her were busy holding out on $47 and embarrassing the entire country in the process, she was out with her girls, throwing back some brewskis and getting her rumba on in a local bar.
But the fact that she can cut loose in a bar isn't the only thing that makes her a little Latina. She's also a super strong, independent woman as evidenced way back in 1992 when asked about her husband's political aspirations and why she decided to keep her own career even though he was rapidly rising in the ranks.
"I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession which I entered before my husband was in public life," she nonchalantly told PBS. Hahaha--how badass is that?
She's also a fiercely protective and great mom who raised her only daughter Chelsea to become a fellow awesome woman. "My parents taught me to approach the world critically, but also to approach it with a sense of responsibility," Chelsea recently said of her upbringing. Job well done Hillary!
So I don't really care if Mrs. Clinton doesn't actually have any Latina blood coursing through her veins. She is A-Ok in my book and I'd like to welcome her to crew. It's fun being Latina, Secretary of State Clinton, I'm sure you're going to love it!
