How many of us have read the Harry Potter books, and/or watched the movies? I saw the first one, and I fell in love with what I saw in it. What I saw were three young people, a team, intelligent, well-meaning, and with their whole futures in front of them. And they were in school – I’ve always found school to be a wonderful place, a place where all kinds of new activities can be pursued, new interests gained, new challenges surmounted. Hermoine, Harry, and Ron – the world was theirs for the taking. (I wasn’t very thrilled that violence came to play such a large role in the movies following that first one, but that’s another subject.)
Hermoine was the “bright one”. She was an intelligent young girl, and she studied incessantly. She saw the value in knowledge and hard work.
The similarities in intelligence and hard work of this character to our Hillary are pretty clear, aren’t they? And besides that, they both get more beautiful with age, they’re both called witches, neither suffers fools gladly, and they both have leadership abilities! (Hillary got past her “let Bill shine” phase, maybe if there were more Potter films, the author would let Hermoine get past the “let Harry shine” phase!) I’m sure you can all come up with more similarities!
And can’t you just see Hillary saying to Obama, “WHAT an IDIOT!” lol Here’s a clip of her fighting the dark forces, forcing the apeman to show his face in the light, and offering to show him how to iron his OWN shirt. Hillary can handle ANYthing!
Now check out this article someone recently wrote! It’s a blast!

In preparation for the final Harry Potter movie, I’m rewatching all of the films to date. Thanks, ABC Family, for that well-timed marathon last weekend and sorry, my DVR, for taking up so much space. In the middle of Prisoner of Azkaban last night (I’ll admit that I had this thought before last night) I had a revelation.
The books should be named after Hermione Granger.
Yes, yes, sad times about that whole your parents dying thing, Harry. Please see the condolences card I sent you 12 YEARS AGO for my sympathy. In the meantime, look at how many people are COMING OUT OF THE WOODWORK to be your new mentor. Even McGonagall is like, “Hey kid, here is a free fancy broom. Just because that one time when your parents died and you’re good at catching shit.”
On the other side of the common room, we have Hermione, who is Muggle born, which means she simply doesn’t have that same built-in support as Harry. She can’t go home to her parents and talk about how people keep trying to kill her because her parents just wouldn’t understand. And while she’s at school, instead of having every single teacher fall over their magic wand to get on her good side, she’s held down. People won’t stop talking about her Muggle parents and it’s all she can do to keep up her studies. By which I mean, BEING BETTER THAN ALL OF THE SCHOOL.
And when Snape assigns homework, Harry is all, “Wah-Wah, there is sport tomorrow, fulfilling my responsibility will be so hard.” MEANWHILE Hermione is MOVING FUCKING TIME so she can take more classes. Because girl knows SOMETHING is happening and she needs to STUDY THE EFF UP.
When the time comes around to fight, the boys are like, “oh wow, look at this thing that happened! Isn’t that crazy?” Meanwhile Hermione is like, “idiots, I figured that out like 5 books ago. CAN YOU PLEASE FOCUS.”
Who actually forms Dumbledore’s army? Hermione. Who has the perseverance and planning to help them survive for the 1908830 thousand pages when they were just sitting in a tent in the cold? Hermione. Supes glad you mastered the patronus charm, Harry, but without Hermione, you wouldn’t even have your wand.
And after she saves the day and just about everyone in the entire book/series/magical world tells her that she’s “the smartest witch for her age,” is it Hermione who finally gets the fancy broom? Of course not. SWOOP IN AN STEAL THE GLORY AGAIN, HORRIBLE HARRY.
In the final book, the girl has to wipe her parents’ memory of any trace of her so they’ll be protected. Essentially orphaning herself. But do people feel bad? Do they start going all Harry Potter on her? No. They are like, “Oh, hey, Hermione, all of my friends and family who still love me and still know who I am are getting together for a massive party. You can come if you want.” and she’s like, “Jolly, fucking jolly, assholes.”
And in the end? She gets stuck with Ron. Ron who did not age well, Ron who really hasn’t done much more than sulk since that one time when he moved the pieces correctly in Wizard’s chess. Ron. Even Snape is hotter than Ron. I mean, at least let her have a little something, something going on with Sirius before he dies. Sirius is deserving of a woman like Hermione.
Finally, I present you with this photo from last night’s premiere. Here are our favorite kids (God, Neville, stop being so goddamn hot), and who stands out? Hermione. Girl is like, “Fuck this bullshit. I own this series. I OWN THEM ALL.”
Here’s a video montage someone put together (it has clips of both the actress Emma Watson and the character Hermoine Granger). The song is okay (“I’m supergirl”), although it includes phrases about “who is going to save ME” and “I want to know, why I feel so alone”, so disregard those! Hermoine IS a
supergirl superwoman. So is Hillary. But so are we ALL!
