Anne Rice on Hillary and Barack

Posted: Updated:

Anne Rice has just posted a video on YouTube celebrating Hillary's New Hampshire win and suggesting a Clinton/Obama ticket. Ms. Rice says she is "pro-life", "a Democrat" and "for Hillary." Here it is:

This video isn't just the video of a famed female novelist exulting in Sen. Clinton's win. It is also the voice of a woman from a generation that grew up in a world where people sneered at the thought of a female president. It is the voice of a woman like all those women who turned out in New Hampshire to vote for Sen. Clinton.

If last week was all about Obama as the transcendent political leader who could inspire America's youngest generation, then this week is all about Hillary as the experienced politician who might be the most effective change agent of them all.
