Meet The Fierce Women In Hillary Clinton’s Inner Circle

It should be obvious by now, but we're all about girl power. And not surprisingly, so is Hillary Clinton. In this new video from The Washington Post's PostTV channel, reporter Chris Cilizza introduces us to the members of Clinton's inner circle in her new role — and there are some serious lady role models here. The most recognizable face? Huma Abedin, one of Clinton's closest advisors, who's currently on an extended vacation, but is expected to have a top-level gig assisting her boss in a new role at the Clinton Foundation. There's also Maura Pally, a veteran of Clinton's State Department and 2008 presidential campaign days. And Melanne Verveer, her chief of staff during her stint as first lady, who became the ambassador-at-large for global women's issues during Clinton's turn as secretary of state. Finally, we'll be keeping an eye out for Cheryl Mills, who began her political run serving as Bill Clinton's deputy White House counsel before becoming Hillary's chief of staff at the State Department. So, while a 2016 presidential bid isn't set in stone yet, we're stoked to see where a female-oriented political campaign could lead. Talk about taking girl power to the next level.
