The artful dodger: Is running for president worth this?

Shoe Thrown At Hillary During Vegas Speech »

What happens in Vegas doesn’t just stay in Vegas.. Normally people only throw shows at bad comedians or Elvis acts.. This go around it was Hillary Clinton..
The video is actually a little scary to see …
I actually think she handled this with humor and class—it had to be frightening but it also was amazing to see her calm and cool reaction.
I know it’s lame to compare everything to something that may lead to political gain, but this is an incident that may help her..
BUT..it may also force her to ask the question: Do I really want to be president this muchthat I will now have shoes thrown at me?
It reminded me of the Bush shoe incident. He, too, dodged the shoes with the skill of a high school dodge ball player.
Maybe political science classes should start including the artful dodge as a course study..

Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round..
