Hillary Clinton Too Sexy for the White House?

Sharon Stone and Madonna think Hillary is too sexy to win back the White House.

Actor Sharon Stone has warned Hillary Rodham Clinton to stay out of the 2008 US presidential race, saying the New York senator and former first lady is too sexy to win back the keys to the White House. Stone, 48, who appears naked in a soon-to-be-released sequel to the provocative 1992 sex thriller Basic Instinct, said Senator Clinton had an intimidating sexuality that would cost her votes. “I think Hillary Clinton is fantastic, but I think it is too soon for her to run (for president),” Stone said in the latest edition of Hollywood Life magazine. “A woman should be past her sexuality when she runs. Hillary still has sexual power and I don’t think people will accept that. It’s too threatening.”

But while Stone wants the 58-year-old Senator Clinton to wait until her sexuality subsides, singer Madonna is urging her to “go for it” in 2008, even though the timing might not be right for Americans to put their trust in a woman president. “I don’t think now is necessarily her time, or the Democrats’ time, but she should certainly go for it,” Madonna reportedly told Out magazine. “You’ve got to start somewhere in terms of a woman leading the US. In Europe and Asia and elsewhere, women have ruled over millions. It’s not an abstract concept. “But in America, men are still afraid. And I don’t think women are too comfortable with the idea of a female in charge.”

Somehow, of all the obstacles that confront Hillary Clinton in her bid to become president, I don’t think being too sexy is among them.

Mrs. Clinton looks pretty good for her age–much more so than as a college student–but she’s not exactly Scarlett Johansson.

Update: Stone is apparently very sex obsessed, following teenagers around malls to encourage them to have oral sex. Apparently, it really does take a village.

    Not exactly Scarlett Johansson! Not even close. Hillary has much more in common with Cindy Sheehan than Scarlett. If Hillary is so hot, why does Bill seek fulfillment elsewhere? Because he can. By the way, why did Hillary ban Funny Girl, Barbara S. from the White House when Bill was Pres.?

    I knew Madonna was bi…didn’t know Stone was too!

    Even if Hill had a different face, she still has those piano leg ankles….nothing sexy there!

    I see they’re getting an early start on the excuses.

    Sharon and Madonna need to get a grip on their way-out-in-left-field lesbian fantasies.
