There's nothing more "everyday" than taking a selfie, which probably explains why Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, who's vowing to fight for the "everyday American," looks like a seasoned pro with her selfie angles. In reality, all of the 2016 presidential candidates are subject to today's selfie culture whether they love it or not, and the campaign trail is filled with eager supporters looking to snap their personal photos. But these Hillary Clinton selfies show how she's amping up the game — and that there's no one too famous to ask her for one.
In a July interview with the Daily Times Herald (of Carroll, Iowa), Clinton talked about how selfie-taking has transformed the election season, acknowledging it can sometimes interfere with her ability to connect with voters, particularly in large crowds. But she more or less defended the practice with a "give the people what they want" attitude, especially when it came to younger voters.
For younger people, it’s as important as anything they could have asked me. So I just say, "OK, we’re going to do it."
And it looks like there are more Clinton selfies to come. Kim Kardashian West arguably transformed the selfie into the art it is today (or at least made it an extremely sellable commodity), but even she was clamoring to hop in on one with Clinton. Here's a quick rundown of our favorites.
Kim & Kanye
Olivia Wilde, Zach Braff, And Uzo Aduba
Orange Is The New Black star Aduba uploaded this group selfie from a New York campaign event back in late June. How everyone knows each other, who knows, but it is awesome. This is actually Aduba's second selfie with the presidential candidate (check out main photo above).
Taken with Arizona State University students, this selfie attempted to give Ellen DeGeneres' record-setting Oscar one a run for its money. It was a nice try, but this one did include cameos from Chelsea and Bill so there's that.
No words needed.
The Democratic Party's Version Of The Spice Girls
The female power group included Clinton, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Patty Murray, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, and Rep. Rosa DeLauro. Let Them "Spice Up Your Life."
Addy & Emma Nozell AKA The "Presidential Selfie Sisters"
The New Hampshire sisters are on a mission to take selfies with as many 2016 presidential candidates as they can. They reportedly only have a handful left, and given they live in an early primary state, chances are they'll meet their goal.
And Finally, Countless Supporters
There's no denying it — Hillary's selfie game is strong.
