Bill Clinton wore a very low-key, but extremely dapper, symbol of his love and support for Hillary Clinton at the HRC campaign's Broadway for Hillary event on Monday night.
The former president rocked a polka-dot pocket square that said "Hillary" on it.
Twitter users were clearly appreciative of this small, but romantic, gesture.
Subtle swag FTW.
This was a very understated, but effective, way to show his nerdy love for Hillary. And I say nerdy because of the story of how they first met.
At the DNC in July, the former president told the tale. He said,
The first time I saw her we were, appropriately enough, in a class on political and civil rights. She had thick blond hair, big glasses, wore no makeup, and she had a sense of strength and self- possession that I found magnetic. After the class I followed her out, intending to introduce myself. I got close enough to touch her back, but I couldn't do it. Somehow I knew this would not be just another tap on the shoulder, that I might be starting something I couldn't stop.
Yep, these nerds, who would eventually become the political power couple we know today, met in the library after they took the same class on political and civil rights. Bill explained,
And I saw her several more times in the next few days, but I still didn't speak to her. Then one night I was in the law library talking to a classmate who wanted me to join the Yale Law Journal. He said it would guarantee me a job in a big firm or a clerkship with a federal judge. I really wasn't interested, I just wanted to go home to Arkansas. Then I saw the girl again, standing at the opposite end of that long room. Finally she was staring back at me, so I watched her. She closed her book, put it down and started walking toward me. She walked the whole length of the library, came up to me and said, 'look, if you're going to keep staring at me... And now I'm staring back, we at least ought to know each other's name. I'm Hillary Rodham, who are you?'
Well, apparently, if you're a hopelessly romantic former president nerd, you wear polka-dot pocket squares adorned with your sweetheart's name.
Maybe next time he could pair it with this very stylish donkey-print Democrat blazer.
If he ends up becoming First Man, it seems he will definitely bring some swag to the White House -- not that he didn't as president back in the '90s.
Personally, I would like to see Bill wearing "Hillary" socks and perhaps even "Hillary" headbands. And why not some "Hillary" cufflinks and a "Hillary" tie to top it all off?
Go big or go home.
