Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, Hilary Clinton is a woman.
Not only a woman, but a woman in politics.
A woman in politics, who is famous.
And she, Hilary Rodham Clinton spoke to my client.
Mrs Clinton was accused of something once. So was her husband.
Mrs Clinton has seen the movie. I now tender the movie in evidence. I won't be a spoiler, but Mrs Clinton told me how it ends, and there was a little bit of a spark there with Obama in the sub-plot.
So there you have it. Hilary told Julia and Julia told Ann about that time she spoke to Hilary.
Ann Summers proves misogyny, sexism, smear and discrimination against the successful 1sts of the world motivate 7 month Victoria Police Major Fraud Squad investigations.
This from the Sydney Morning Herald. There's even a trailer from the movie Hilary saw.
Former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton told then prime minister Julia Gillard she had to stick up for herself in the face of events from her past being dredged up and used against her.
(MPS, editor's note and question to students. Do you think the author and publisher express an opinion in the use of the word "dredged up" from the past. As in the former priest said, "what's the point in dredging up all these events with altar boys from 20 years ago?")
Ms Gillard and Mrs Clinton had a private meeting in Perth late last year which Ms Gillard recounted to journalist Anne Summers in a piece published on Friday afternoon.
In what would turn out to be Ms Gillard's last in-depth interview before she lost the prime ministership, she revealed to Dr Summers how she had spoken about the added pressure of being 'The First' with Barack Obama, and how Mrs Clinton had discussed with her the issue of being a high profile woman.
"We did have a discussion about where our media cycle was stuck then, which was this relentless opposition questioning about events the best part of 20 years ago," Ms Gillard said in the interview, which took place on June 10 this year.At the time the pair met Ms Gillard was facing questions over her role in the AWU affair dating back to her time as a lawyer with Slater and Gordon in the 1990s.
Mrs Clinton told Ms Gillard that she had ''seen this movie before'', a reference to the questions the Clintons faced over the Whitewater development scandal.
Mrs Clinton offered Ms Gillard the following advice: "You've got to stand up to it and be clear about it and name it for what it is because the temptation is to say, 'Look this is so absurd, it'll die a death', whereas these things unfortunately don't die a death."
The then prime minister also revealed how she discussed race and gender with US President Barack Obama saying the two shared a bond based on their unique understanding of what it was like to be the first to reach high office.
Ms Gillard said Mr Obama's experience as the first African American president and her status as Australia's first female prime minister helped them to understand each other.
"I think there is a little bit of a spark there about the sense of being 'The First' and consequently having to deal with things that someone else who's in your position has never had to," Ms Gillard said.
