Hillary Clinton And The Disappearing Naked Man

by | 21st, November 2007

HILLARY Clinton and the disappearing nude:

Censorship! That’s what some art lovers whispered during the Hillary Clinton fundraiser Nov. 5 at the Woodley Park home of Tony and Heather Podesta. The huge photograph of the nude man was missing from its usual spot on the living room wall, and some guests concluded that politically correct Clintonites had demanded that the naked guy disappear.

The Podestas are part of Washington’s Democratic elite: He’s a top lobbyist and brother of Clinton White House chief of staff John Podesta; she just launched her own lobbying firm. They’re also nationally known collectors of contemporary art, and one of their favorite pieces is “Soliloquy VII,” an eight-foot-tall color photo of a nude man lying on his back, by British artist Sam Taylor-Wood.

You’d think she’d never seen a naked man…
