There's only one problem with all of this: Hillary just isn't that interesting. The media virtually universally threw Huma Abedin under the bus over the past two weeks after she attempted to imitate Hillary to save her embattled penis-tweeting husband, Anthony Weiner. She didn't get away with it, not because she's not Hillary -- she's as close to Hillary as it's possible to get -- but because her husband isn't Bill. And that's the sad truth about Hillary: She's been riding her husband's coattails for decades. If she were Hillary Rodham rather than Hillary Clinton, she'd be in the same boat as Nancy Pelosi or Barbara Boxer or any other myriad number of powerful women with no shot at the presidency -- and no love in Hollywood.

The Hollywood love affair with Hillary is truly a love affair with Bill that never ended -- only instead of chocolates and flowers, Hollywood is preparing to blow tens of millions of dollars on failed mash notes to the prospective 2016 nominee. Hollywood is willing to sacrifice that cash to see a Hillary presidency, which shows how truly partisan a town Hollywood is. But at least we'll get to see a lot of pantsuits for the next three years.
