As Hillary Clinton reportedly picks her campaign headquarters in balmy Brooklyn, she’s also got a team hard at work shaping up her image. As to the rationale behind the choice of Brooklyn, New York, it combines the desire for a space outside Washington, D.C. while giving her staffers a choice of affordable residences, reported Reuters.
Once known as the First Lady when Bill Clinton resided in that coveted White House Oval Office, Hillary then became U.S. Secretary Of State. But with an increasing desire to take over that office herself, sources have revealed that she anticipates tossing her hat in the 2016 election ring in mid to late April.
As for her Brooklyn Heights neighborhood office, the election rules require that she then create her campaign within a 15-day period.
With both Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton having stated their support, can Hillary really win that coveted White House office and revolve around in the presidential chair? That’s the question that First Lady Michelle Obama’s previous assistant Kristina Schake hopes to answer with an affirmative, reported the New York Times.
At 45, Schake has been hired to create a new image for Hillary, one that is warm and friendly along the lines of Michelle Obama herself. What might that new brand look like?
Mrs. Clinton could become immersed in opportunities to reveal her health and fitness routine, along the lines of the First Lady’s “dance mom” routines with pal Jimmy Fallon.
But Hillary isn’t the only candidate to try to change the way in which she is perceived, according to the New York Daily News. Add Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, and Mike Huckabee to the list of those who are trying to flaunt their fitness.
For Bush, going back to the caveman basics is the key. He’s following a Paleo diet that emphasizes protein and vegetables.
Huckabee also has gone public in admitting his weight gain and goal of shedding pounds.
“The only way I know to achieve this is by making the right food choices and engaging in simple exercises,” he declared.
As for Christie, he chose lap-band surgery combined with drastic dietary changes, resulting in a 100-pound weight loss thus far. The governor continues to lose weight after that surgery.
Hillary Clinton, however, also is on a strict diet. She eats peppers to boost her metabolism, requests healthy snacks such as water and sliced veggies for backstage sustenance during her appearances, and follows the guidelines of Dr. Mark Hyman, who helped Bill Clinton regain his health after heart surgery.
As the Inquisitr reported, Bill is now an ex-vegan who follows Dr. Hyman’s gluten-free, Paleo-style low-carb diet. He recently appeared on Rachael Ray’s talk show and revealed how he shifted to a diet higher in protein sources such as fish.
