In terms of cringe factor, this clip of Hillary Clinton – candidate for the next president of the United States of America – and Rosie O’Donnell singing show tunes together in 1997 rates pretty highly. Which is why it’s so magnificent. The 90s were so weird! The hair was so big! Hillary Clinton has serious sass!
The pair did all the talking bits from The Telephone Hour in Bye Bye Birdie too, and it’s show tunes – and chat shows where politicians need to show their human (and Broadway-destined) side – at its best.
Thanks to Buzzfeed, and the internet, this clip is having a well-deserved second outing.
This is the original song too, if you’re interested.
