Hillary Clinton continues to reach out to the ruthlessly unimaginative members of the millennial generation whose support she'll be counting on in 2016. Her campaign, for example, recently put out a list of "DIY Hillary Clinton costumes for Halloween" advising mature trick-or-treaters how to dress up like old photos of Hillary Clinton. It was a very spontaneous and fun thing that they did.
We thought it was a great idea, and decided to put together some Hillary Clinton costume ideas of our own.

People magazine rocked the nation back in June by publishing a cover image of Hillary Clinton in which she appeared to lean on an old person's walker for support, a controversy that remains unresolved. This Halloween, get ready to "cover" yourself in this age-old look.
