Hillary Clinton Needs a Job, Joins LinkedIn
She may need some endorsements.   (LinkedIn)

She's been first lady, secretary of state, and now a 2016 presidential candidate; she's also a "dog person," "hair icon," and "pantsuit aficionado." Meet Hillary Clinton via her new LinkedIn page, which launched today, the Washington Post reports. Also included in her new profile: the requisite CV, education (Wellesley and Yale, ICYMI), and a couple of videos—no endorsements spotted yet.

Clinton has been focusing on small businesses, the Post notes, including a campaign stop this week in Iowa with small-business owners, so a renewed focus on her own business background makes sense. A post entitled "Four Ways to Jump-Start Small Business" also showed up today on her LinkedIn page, which includes a subtle reminder that her business acumen may translate quite nicely into the POTUS position: "The early lessons I learned about hard work and entrepreneurship have stuck with me all my life." (She needs more followers to even come close to Obama's Twitter record.)
