We enjoy following the current day-to-day lives of the powerful women. But sometimes it’s fun to look back and remember how those women ended up where they are today. Each Friday, we’ll dig up a vintage video starring your favorite leading ladies in their early days.
Before Arianna Huffington’s name was plastered across the Internet as the face of liberal new media, she was actually a conservative commentator. Towards the late 1990s, she became considerably more liberal. Here, in 1998, she’s speaking on a panel about political satire. Not only are her points interesting (she had just published her seventh book at this point), her patriotic get-up is also a-mazing.
