Don’t worry about Hillary Clinton not having a job, she’s finally working again. No more macaroni and cheese dinners for her and Bill!
Clinton can now put those Costco book signings behind her, as she’s been cast to appear on the CBS show “Madam Secretary,” the show she supposedly inspired. The show stars Tea Leoni as a female secretary of state, who spends each episode dealing with a weekly international crisis and toxic masculinity from her male Washington co-workers.
She’ll appear with other former Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright when the show returns this fall.
Somehow, the show failed to cast former female Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who was the first female African-American Secretary of State. Rice, however, is an outspoken conservative.
This is a first for Clinton but not for Albright, who appeared on the show in 2015. It’s the perfect place for former secretaries of state to drop by since Tea Leoni plays Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord on the drama.
“Having three powerhouses of diplomacy agree to come on our show is awe-inspiring and humbling. And that we were able to find a time in their busy schedules when they were all available is a miracle,” executive producer Lori McCreary said in a statement.
It’ll be a big season for Elizabeth on Madam Secretary. At the end of last season, she revealed her plans to run for president. Executive producer/creator Barbara Hall told EW that this coming season will be “about the State Department, because she still has her job. But we will pull back the curtain on what the process is, once someone decides to run. We really like to reveal process on this show, so we’ll will start the research and do stories about what she discovers along the way.”
Here’s the tweet announcing the casting.
