We wondered if the people gleefully predicting a 2016 Hillary run will be more cautious in the wake of her recent health scare.

In today’s EOD roundup, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton returned to work today after a brief hospital stay. After a standing ovation, State Department officials presented Clinton with a white football helmet emblazoned with the State Department seal. Now I can’t stop daydreaming of Clinton, helmet on head, riding around New Jersey in Zach Braff’s sidecar. Make it so!

“Senate testimony! AACK!” That was my impression of former State Department official and U.N ambassador John Bolton impersonating Secretary of State Hilary Clinton. Some explanation: after Bolton’s claims that Clinton faked an illness in order to avoid her scheduled testimony on the Benghazi attack , I’m now certain that Bolton understands women solely in terms of Cathy cartoon strips. Faking illnesses, drowning sorrows in chocolate, constantly trying to lose ten pounds — women, amirite Bolton?

I don’t know about you, but the widespread discussion that ensued after former Clinton administration worker Anne-Marie Slaughter wrote about being unable to “have it all” made me want to vomit violently onto my computer screen for eternity. Apparently Secretary of State Hillary Clinton felt the same way, having recently said that such complaining is off-putting and debilitating. She’s spot on, and I wasn’t surprised that this was her response.

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz may be glad that Augusta National now admits female members, but doesn’t seem to think it’s enough that former Bush administration official Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina businesswoman Darla Moore have received bids.

Daily Beast contributor Meghan McCain is in a rough place right now. On the one hand, the Republican Arizona girl wants Mitt Romney to become our next president, but on the other, she wants Barack Obama to take Hillary Clinton on as his VP candidate, and given the rise of the current secretary of state’s popularity, the GOP would really struggle to compete against her. Nevertheless, the “Dirty Sexy Politics” author argues that Clinton would be the right choice for Obama’s ticket — and that kicking Joe Biden to the curb would be a good move for liberals.

Great Britain is facing some political trouble — so who does the New Republic magazine exploit to relay this information to the world? Duchess of Cambridge Catherine, who appears to have decaying teeth on the July 12 issue of the publication as a symbol of the dark times Britain is currently experiencing. We’re not sure why the mag chose to publish an insulting doctored photo of the royal to get its point across, but we’re not happy about it. Here are other offensive and sexist magazine covers that have been really demeaning to women in politics.

Hillary Clinton seems like one of those people who has always been really good at a lot of things. Heck, she even made a lasting impression on her driver’s ed instructor, so it’s only fitting that she’d become the most traveled Secretary of State in U.S. history. But it hasn’t been all business, all the time. The former first lady knows how to have fun abroad, whether at a bar or with whimsical clothing. Here are some of our favorite silly snapshots of Clinton in cool places.

High school graduation season has ended, but memories from one’s formative years never go away–and the same goes for pictures from that time period. It’s fun to look at old snapshots of successful female ladies and wonder whether they knew as kids that they’d lead amazing, high profile lives. Many of them were high achievers from the start, so they probably always had an inkling that good things would come their way. Echoing Mediaite‘s new post on media personalities in high school, here are a few photos of our favorite political women during their late teens.

Guess what? Today is the best day of the year. It’s Take Your Dog to Work Day! Whether you are a dog person or prefer cats, you cannot deny the sweetness of canines, who love everything and everyone. I hope a pup graced you with his/her presence this afternoon, but either way you can appreciate the snapshots below of famous women alongside the greatest furry friends known to man (IMO).
