What Does Hillary Clinton Drive?

The big news du jour is Hillary Clinton announced her US presidential candidacy and will drive to Iowa making unplanned stops.  I took this as a non-issue for good ol’ Canadian me, until I realized I was an automotive copywriter!  What ensued was rapid-fire neuron activity that took me from literally not caring to wondering, “What the heck does Hillary Clinton drive?”  Well, the answer is quite anti-climactic.

She doesn’t drive.  Crap.  Well, she hasn’t driven since 1996 is what the Google tells me.  And from the sounds of it, it was an unauthorized cruise.  The secret service didn’t know about it, which I find surprising because they are aware of the next bowel movement you will have before even YOU know!  Anyway, it seems she got in a bit of hot water over it and can’t get behind the wheel anymore.

If you think this was a dead end, it was not.  Maybe her drive was; I don’t know.  But instead of leaving it at that, I wondered how she does get around on the ground.  Well, wouldn’t you know it.  Important people like the potential next President of the United States of America (and potentially the first woman in the Oval Office) are chauffeured around.  I know there must be a Monica Lewinsky joke in there but I’ll leave it alone.

These motorcade vehicles– they’re usually pretty crazy.  Take for instance, Obama’s “Beast” Cadillac pictured here:

Ain’t nothing getting to Obama in this thing!  5″ thick steel for the hood alone!  My goodness.  That thing must weigh 8 tons!  Yup, it does.

Or maybe a standard issue Secret Service Suburban:

 

 

That’s pretty cool too.  I’m sure those must have bullet-proof glass as well.  But what is Hillary Clinton driving across America in?

 

 

Seriously?!?  Isn’t she a little past soccer practices and piano recitals?  Here we read that Hillary’s travelling in a van, but we aren’t given any specifics of what make or model she’s actually travelling in.

Good on her, I say.  She wants to show Americans that she truly does care for them so why not meet them on their level?  Nobody is under any illusion that Hillary Clinton is anything less than a very important person, but in my eyes, seeing the potential president hopping out of a grocery-getter to shake hands and kiss babies will help her connect with her people.
