Hillary Clinton Visits Scandal Set — Conflict of Interest for Olivia?

Should Scandal‘s Mellie Grant be concerned that her svengali is cozying up to another high-powered White House hopeful?

Real life collided with reel life on Monday when Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton visited the set of ABC’s Scandal, to the surprise and delight of Kerry Washington, Scott Foley (who is directing this week’s episode) and others.

But no, wannabe POTUS Mellie needn’t worry that Olivia is throwing her over for someone else. Clinton was merely visiting and will not be appearing in any future episode.

    Hillary: “What do you mean, you can’t make it look like an accident?”

    The corrupt, ‘pay me for my viewpoint’ Clinton fits perfectly into the world of Scandal full of back stabbing traitors.

    More like gag reel

    I’d say Hillary’s pandering, but apparently almost everyone there loves her, heck even Shonda loves Hillary.

    Sorry, Bernie. (Also, can we guess which set Bernie should crash?)

    I’m a Bernie supporter, but this is cool!

    The campaign person who thought this was a good idea should be fired. But at least she didn’t visit The Good Wife set.

      Actually it was a good idea. It shows that Hillary has a sense of humor and can ride out the punches thrown at her. Since the Republicans are always trying to create some scandal, then going to the set of Scandal is tongue in cheek and mocking.

    She’s Lazarus One!
