EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME: As hard as it may be to believe, the presidential candidates are going to become even more ubiquitous — and Glamour is doing its part. On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton became the first of what the magazine hopes will be many presidential candidate guest "bloggers" (actually just brief essays or answers to commenters' questions) on its Web site. "As a young woman, I was reminded daily of what I couldn't do — the schools I couldn't attend, the sports I couldn't play, the jobs I could never have," Clinton wrote, adding, "I watched my daughter and her friends grow into capable young women, watched them compete with men in every field — politics, finance, medicine, law. I watched them get involved in my campaign because they've grown up being told by their parents and teachers that anything is possible and they want to see me prove it." It's no coincidence Clinton is the first to appear on the site: Her campaign officials contacted Glamour when they heard about Glamocracy, its blog featuring daily posts from five women on different points of the political spectrum — presumably as part of Clinton's effort to appeal to women voters. John McCain is the only other candidate confirmed so far.
