Hubris: Hillary Clinton Signed Newsweek ‘Madam President’ Cover On Election Eve

Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was photographed signing the cover of Newsweek’s premature Madam President issue backstage at an election eve campaign rally that was held in Pittsburgh.

The photo was taken by Justin Sullivan and posted to Twitter by ABC News reporters Cecilia Vega and Liz Kruetz. The cover of the magazine, with Clinton’s beaming face below the ‘Madam President’ headline, had an orange sticky note with the name ‘Cate’ written on it. Clinton was photographed from over her right shoulder and can be seen with a pen in her right hand ready to autograph the cover.
