Hillary Clinton, Meryl Streep Hang Out (PHOTOS)

BFFs? We can dream. But Meryl Streep and Hillary Clinton looked pretty chummy on Saturday night.

The Oscar-winning actress and the Secretary of State met up at the Kennedy Center Honors gala, held at the State Department.

According to the AP, Streep used her iPhone to snap a photo of the two powerful women.

Earlier this year, Streep compared herself to the former First Lady.

"I find a lot of similarities," Streep said when introducing Clinton at the Women in the World Summit. "We're roughly the same age, we both have two brothers -- mine are annoying -- we both grew up in middle-class homes with spirited, big-hearted mothers who encouraged us to do something valuable and interesting with our lives. We both went from public high schools to distinguished women's colleges ... We both went on to graduate school at Yale."

Photos below.

1. Two of my favorite women ever

Would love to see Streep play Hillary someday. Hopefully after Hillary's second term as prez....i know, i know....but, a boy can dream, right?

2. I was just thinking that eventually Streep will play Hillary

as 1st lady or SOS. She's already been Maggie Thatcher.

8. Well, the original Manchurian Candidate appeared well before Hillary came on the scene...

but I didn't get the Hillary reference in the remake anyway...

I would love to see Streep portray the second President Clinton. Would that be cool, or what? Staying hopeful!!!

Glad you're here - we dream of the same things here within DU!

examples of what powerful women are like. No subserviant trophy wives in that photo. It is absolutely amazing what liberal freedom is capable of creating.

21. As Good As Obama Has Been

 

And as good as he obviously is going to be the next 4 years, I will admit to being a Clinton democrat and a supporter of Hillary back in 2008. I am so hoping that she decides to be our next president. Can you just imagine a democratic ticket with Hillart at the top and Sherrod Brown as her Veep? The margin of victory would rival that of the biggest wins of all time. I so wish that Jennifer Granholm was eligible..........she is another great liberal female voice in politics.

Thank you for your welcome, I am a long-time lurker who finally decided to take the plunge. I take a lot of heat for my views about organized religion, but I stand just as proud and true to my beliefs as anyone else on the face of thgis earth. If others have a problem with that, then that is just the case, it is their problem, not mine.

Was this visit actually a "research mission" on her part?
