On the two-year anniversary of Election 2016, Mary Steenburgen recalls the poignant solace she tried to offer her longtime friend Hillary Clinton after she lost that years bruising presidential race.
As long as were privileged to draw breath, life is a grace and none of us know whats around the bend, Steenburgen, 65, told Clinton, according to an essay the Book Club actress wrote for #StillWithHer by former White House photographer Barbara Kinney. (The book, out Nov. 1, was produced in collaboration with PEOPLEs Sandra Sobieraj Westfall.)
Steenburgen, a close personal friend of Hillary and Bill Clinton dating back to when they all lived in Arkansas, also reflects on the significance of Clintons presidential campaign.
In the book, she remembers the first time she thought that Hillary Clinton could be president. It was the late 1970s and Steenburgen and the Clintons were eating cookies in the kitchen of the Arkansas governors mansion. At some point, the then-Arkansas governor and his wife discussed ways to provide health insurance for children.
They were on fire with this idea. It happened a lot with them, Steenburgen writes. And I loved the idea, too. But as I watched them try to figure out ways to change the world, I remember thinking, Wouldnt it be amazing if Bill could be president someday?
She continues, Then I looked at [Hillary] and I gasped to myself. Oh, my god. What if she could be president?(continued)

Did it involve a battery operated device?
Dee Dee Myers and Markie Post consoled both Hillary and Bill.
-whats around the bend,
Pain and Misery
What you said!
Couldn't be any cookies that Hillary made.
Hillary Clinton, 1992:
"I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession."
Poured chardonnay down her gullet.
You Got That Right!
“I looked at Hillary and thought it was just amazing that someone named for Sir Edmund Hillary could fall flat on her face in a presidential campaign!”
“I looked at Hillary and gasped... in horror.... this woman is such a nightmare!”
I was kind of wondering that myself. Could be non battery operated devices too. 👍

Cookies? Cookies? These people really are stupid! Would coke be closer to the truth? ROFLMAO
Hillary smells like boiled cabbage, urine and farts
Who cares, lady?
"Poignant solace", huh?
Pretty clever euphemism for a couple of bottles of cheap Scotch whisky...
Oh, dear. We don’t need to know “how”.
