The City Gal & The Hillbilly

16Sep08

It seems that Saturday Night Live bit, with Hillary and Sarah appearing together, was prescient.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton will join the Republican vice presidential candidate at a rally outside the United Nations Monday morning to protest the appearance of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

It could be that the city girl and the hillbilly working together can punch a few more holes in the glass ceiling.

The event — which includes prominent political and religious leaders, including Nobel Peace Prize Winner Elie Wiesel — is being organized by a coalition of American Jewish organizations, under the umbrella group the National Coalition to Stop Iran Now.

Perhaps they’ll start a women’s party.

Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice president of the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations, said that Clinton accepted the invitation to the rally back in August, before Palin was part of the Republican presidential ticket. “We had approached Republican leaders because we wanted to have this event on a nonpartisan basis.” The Republicans offered up Palin today, he said.

The potential of the McCain campaign having video of Sarah and Hillary together to use in a TV commercial strikes me as good reason to assume that they’ll find some way to keep Hillary away from the newest rock star.

Hoenlein said Clinton has been informed of Palin’s plans to attend the event and that she has no intention of pulling out. Will they appear together on the stage? “We haven’t yet worked out the details,” Hoenlein said. “A lot of this will depend on the Secret Service.”

“Yes, that’s it. It was the Secret Service. That’s the ticket!”
