Hillary's Spielberg makeover

The news that broke a week ago about Steven Spielberg unsuccessfully attempting to help make Hillary Clinton more likable was soon followed up the news that she would be guest on tonight’s Saturday Night Live.  Oh well, if Spielberg’s genius doesn’t work, maybe Lorne Michaels can help. We shall see soon.

Spielberg’s quest was reported in the New York Post:

In his new book, “Unlikeable,” journalist Edward Klein unveils the lengths Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign will go to avoid the mistakes of the 2008 race — when Obama famously said, “You’re likeable enough, Hillary.” In an exclusive excerpt to The Post, Klein reveals how Bill Clinton reached out to a famous friend for help.

Hillary was taking lessons on how to be more likeable.

She was doing it for Bill, not for herself. It was all his idea.

One evening while they were having drinks with friends, he turned to Hillary and said, “Let’s ask Steven for help.”

Their old Hollywood buddy Steven Spielberg could supply Hillary with acting coaches to help her when she had to give a speech.

Hillary didn’t think she needed help.

“I get $250,000 to give a speech,” she said, according to one of her friends, “and these Hollywood jackasses are going to tell me how to do it!”

But Bill insisted.
