The 16 best responses to my tweet about Hillary Clinton running for office again

Posted May 9, 2018 10:46 a.m. EDT

— On Tuesday morning, following the rapid resignation of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, I tweeted this: "Here's a name that would shake up the New York AG race: Hillary Clinton."

Roughly 24 hours later, that half-joke, half-imagine-if tweet had generated more than 2,300 likes and 1,500 comments.

That shouldn't have surprised me. Because the Clinton tweet combined two things that people have very strong opinions about: Hillary Clinton and me.

The responses to the tweets were, broadly speaking split into two categories: 1) People who hate Clinton and never want to even consider her running for anything 2) People who like Clinton but don't like a) me or b) me floating the idea -- even somewhat jokingly -- of her running for other offices.

Some were mean (about Clinton and me!). Lots were GIFS of people dry heaving. But many made me laugh. Here are my 16 favorites.
