Important: "Reclusive, neurotic, over-the-hill vocalist" endorses Hillary

I’m quoting, as you’ll shortly see. Her statement begins, predictably, not with a tribute to Hillary’s qualifications but with an identitarian ode to What It Means:

“Madame President of the United States…it’s an extraordinary thought. We truly are in a momentous time, where a woman’s potential has no limitations,” said Streisand. “Hillary Clinton has already proven to a generation of women that there are no limits for success. She is driven by her passion for public service and her belief in the enormous potential of our country. Smart, capable and strong in her convictions, Hillary has transcended the dictates of what is thought to be possible for our time.

Not unexpected (really not unexpected?) and useful insofar as it helps Hillary close the all-important Most Powerful Woman in Showbiz gap. Exit question: Doesn’t this inadvertently play into Obama’s image as fresh-faced and different? He’s got Oprah! and Hillary’s got this gorgon has-been and her Truther moron husband.
