As she's currently doing her nearly two-year run for president, Hillary Clinton has to field a lot questions, some of them not particularly political. In a recent chat with South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Jamie Harrison, the former first lady and secretary of state opens up about her favorite TV shows, and the answers are … telling. Clinton revealed she's a huge fan of Tea Leoni's "Madam Secretary" — so she's the one — about a female secretary of state. So maybe she likes shows she can relate to? Because she's also a huge fan of "The Good Wife," which started out about a high-powered woman overcoming her politician husband's sex scandal. This is very, very awkward.
But don't worry, Clinton has found the secret to relatability, and it is HGTV. "I love watching people redecorating their houses, buying houses," she says. "There's a program called 'Love It or List It.' I like to watch 'Beachfront Bargain [Hunt]' and I'm interested in this young couple that flip houses ['Flip or Flop'], whether they're going to make their money or not." Fine, sure, but where does she come down in the ever-important "House Hunters" versus "House Hunters International" debate?
