We’ll give you three guesses to figure out who this is (don’t scroll down too far or you’ll ruin the reveal):
Give up? Would you believe it’s DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the latest issue of Vogue magazine? It is. And if you’re baffled, you’re not the only one.
From The Hill:
The Democratic National Committee chairwoman is almost unrecognizable in the photos, which show her in designer dresses with her trademark curls blown-out and wearing what appears to be a lot of makeup.
Some have criticized Vogue for “glamming” up Wasserman Schultz, since as Democratic strategist David Axelrod even says in the profile, “a lot of working mothers in America identify with her and she with them.” The piece also calls her “neither elite nor rich.”
Wasserman Schultz’s director of communications, Jonathan Beeton, responded to any critics who might suggest she is going over-the-top.
“Debbie Wasserman Schultz really is many working Moms throughout the country. They are at their kids’ softball practice in a tshirt and shorts. They’re at work in asuit,” he told BuzzFeed. “In the times that they’re able to go out for a special occassion, they can put on a nice dress.”
The actual magazine article isn’t available online. But we did find picture of it online (via The Mad Jewess), which includes another photo:
The Hill, however, does describe what’s in the profile:
The piece paints the Florida Democrat, who has a reputation for being one of the hardest workers on Capitol Hill, as a superwoman: “To run the DNC in a presidential year, serve in the congressional leadership, manage a softball team and be a mother to three … requires preternatural energy, as well as a large number of costume changes.”
It also calls her the “Jewish mother of Congress,” noting she is “constantly fussing over the well-being of her staff, trying to get better food in the congressional cafeterias, fretting about their romantic lives, and always remembering their birthdays with cake.”
Now you know.
