Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton came to a fundraiser near Yale University this month and left New Haven with 50 to 60 checks for $2700, and a goody bag of premium anti-aging products. Dermatologist Nicholas Perricone of Branford, nationally renowned for his books and television appearances on ways to look younger, arrived at the fundraiser with two large gift bags, one for Clinton, the other for event host Judith Resnick, a professor at Yale Law School, Clinton’s alma mater.
Channel 3 political reporter Susan Raff asked Dr. Perricone about the gifts he came bearing. “She’s going to be president for 8 years, and we want Madame President to look good.” I suppose there are some who could see the gift as an insult. Clinton’s response could have been “what are you trying to tell me?”
That was the only soundbite Raff was able to get. Clinton avoided reporters during this first appearance in Connecticut during the presidential campaign, by entering through a back door. Intrepid reporter Mary O’Leary of the New Haven Register was able to snap this picture.
