Tumblr’s latest meme, “Texts from Hillary,” spreading in shares across the net, features photos of the secretary of state texting in her sunglasses. Hillary’s photos are connected to pictures of various celebrities and political figures, displaying back-and-forth text conversations between them and Hillary.
The two particular photos that stand out to me is one where President Obama lays on a couch, holding his cell. He texts, “Hey Hill, Whatchu doing?” Hillary responds, “Running the world.” This may be a satire, but it’s also an indication of the powerful impression she has on many people. Perhaps running the world is a stretch, but running the country certainly isn’t. If Hillary is going viral now, she will unquestionably go viral over the next four years, just in time to run for the 2016 election.
