You know that great gif of Hillary Clinton winking? You know the one I’m talking about*:

Neither can I. And for this awkward, uncool trait (and that fact she keeps trying), I love her all the more.
Here is a gallery of Hillary’s gallant attempts at winking over the years, with a few of me thrown in for good measure.
