Hillary Clinton glibly confronts the giant orange squirrel sent to torment her

Hillary Clinton took time out from her whirlwind book tour to personally deliver an autographed copy of the memoir to a big anthropomorphic squirrel who's been hounding her proto-campaign for president. And incredibly, the run-in gave us this wonderful Clinton quote: "Hello Mr. Squirrel, how are you?"

The squirrel is a Republican National Committee gimmick meant to mock Clinton with nut puns — "Another Clinton in the White House is nuts" — though it appears to be having little effect in rankling the former secretary of state. --Jon Terbush
