Hillary Clinton’s favorite TV shows probably won’t surprise you

Yes, Hillary Clinton relaxes by watching political dramas. Is anyone surprised?

When political candidates start talking about their favorite TV shows, it can feel like a cynical ploy to seem relatable and normal.

Not so with Hillary Clinton, who revealed to Stephen Colbert that her three favorite shows are basically fanfiction about her own life: House of Cards (about a Washington power couple trying to hold onto the presidency), Madam Secretary (about a female secretary of state), and The Good Wife, which literally features a Clinton campaign storyline this season.

Some people might see these choices as egotistical, but we kind of love the fact that Hillary Clinton admits to watching political dramas to relax.
