Hillary Clinton, secret agent!
When the former secretary of state approached Madam Secretary executive producer Lori McCreary about guest-starring on the CBS drama, her first request was to assume a provocative new identity as a spy. But McCreary had a better idea.
I said, would you ever play yourself? McCreary recalls of the conversation she had with Clinton at a birthday party last August for former President Bill Clinton. And she said, Id consider it. But it was a party, so you think maybe people are just making small talk. So when we confirmed that she really wanted to do it, we were excited.'
EW has obtained an exclusive first look of Clintons much-anticipated trip to the political drama. The former secretary of state, who actually inspired the Téa Leoni drama, is joined on the show by former Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright (who has appeared on the series before).
To incorporate the former secretaries of state, creator/executive producer Barbara Hall penned an episode about nationalism. Theres an act of violence that is related to that issue, and Elizabeth (Leoni) feels like [she needs to make a] speech to the country. She feels she needs some help and guidance on how to handle this situation, so she calls them to give her some advice, which is something secretaries of state do. Its been a protocol, calling each other up.

Absolutely the most sickening show on TV.
This TV show actually can be rather enjoyable because of moments of unintentional hilarity like this.
What has happened to these people?
Isn’t cankles already way overdue for the CNBC segment on commodities futures trading? Priorities, I suppose ...
Thanks simpson96. The show was often sketchy, pushes the AGW agenda, also went to Cuba to bring back a terrorist who'd lived there in exile since the 1960s, and of course Leoni took her side and brought her "home" -- another miserable piece of writing. The show doesn't belong on the air, but if you watch, be sure to post which companies and other entities advertise on the POS.
What has she accomplished for the GOOD OF THE PEOPLE?
It was always about "Power".....and nothing more.
So her espionage in the government was all just character study???
Having Condi Rice appear just wouldn't be acceptable. Either that or it's racism / sexism.
They also left out John F’ng Kerry. I’m so sad.
Hillary wanted to be a spy??? LOL.
The SoS needs to make a speech to the country? Where the hell is the President? It's laughable on its face. I confess I have never watched an episode. And never will.
What's Colin doing on Madame Secretary?
Is he trying to tell us something?
I cannot imagine any future SoS calling up Kerry / Clinton / Albright for advice. Unless it would be about how to arrange and effect the sale of a strategic national asset - like uranium - to a foreign power while personally enriching oneself.
Hill must be pissed to not have a solo gig
Call her up for advice?!
Colon Powell—massive disappointment, total turncoat. No surprise that he’s enthralled with being in a Hollywierd show.
