Michelle Kwan Joins Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

 

Michelle Kwan (R) joins Clinton's Presidential Campaign

Former Olympic skater and wife of Rhode Island Gubernatorial candidate Clay Pell, Michelle Kwan, has joined the Clinton campaign as a paid staffer. 

According to the New York Times, Kwan will "work out of the campaign's New York office and focus on directing campaign surrogates to engage voters on issues critical to working families".

In 2009, Kwan was named a public advocacy envoy by the U.S. State Department.  The five-time world champion figure skater and two-time Olympic medalist has previously worked with President Obama's administration, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Her husband lost in a 2014 Democratic primary for Governor of Rhode Island. Earlier this year she was named to the Boston Olympic Committee's Board of Directors - the effort to bring the 2024 Olympics to Boston.

Seal and Run

So I may have accidentally hit a seal on N Main St last night. Why the seal was crossing the street, I have no idea.

Ok, this is where we are. You can come and get me now, Michelle. Unless there's more than one of these in RI. Damn.

@PellKwanPrius You think we could stop at some frozen pond and we could play a pickup game? Could use some fresh air #PriusHumor #PondHockey

@TheGretzkyStick <--- Impostor. As previously discussed, hockey sticks cannot tweet. Everyone knows this.

For Clay, on St. Pat's:

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the keys be within your grasp.

May you always remember if you walked or drove.

@politifactri Don't start with me. I registered as soon as I was eligible. And I have never missed an inspection.

Alex and Ani

My @alexandani theory: Carolyn took Gio for coffee on Thayer, forgot he was with her, went back to office alone, reported him missing.

Gone Hollywood

I've always hoped that if they make a movie about me, I'll be played by Herbie the Love Bug. What a great actor.

Hybrid Citizen

I don't consider myself exclusively a resident of either DC or RI. I guess I'm more of a hybrid.
