According to New York magazine, "The Nanny" star Fran Drescher wants Hillary Clinton's Senate seat:
Fran Drescher wants to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate. She says she's qualified. "I've just been given the appointment of U.S. diplomat," she said at a party for Le Cirque: A Table in Heaven at that restaurant on December 3. "My title is public diplomacy envoy for women's health issues, and I just got back from a four-country European tour of duty. I believe next I'll be sent to the Middle East." ... What else makes her a good candidate? "I'm an authentic and honest person," she said. "And I think Capitol Hill needs more of that."
Her activism began grimly, when she was diagnosed with uterine cancer. ... Along the way, she says she won first lady Laura Bush's help and was rewarded with a nomination to be a special U.S. envoy on women's health issues. Her appointment is stuck in the usual bureaucracy, but she swears there are no skeletons in her closet. "I'm a good girl, I am," she says. Her further political goal: being a New York senator. "If Hillary wins," she tells us of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton, "I want that seat!"
