    Terrible return on her investment.

    July 24, 2006 -- WASHINGTON - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign army has increased its ranks to 50 staffers and more than 20 consultants, specialists in everything from fund-raising to speech-writing to hairstyling and makeup.

    Clinton, the likely 2008 Democratic White House front-runner, ponied up nearly $3,000 in campaign cash for her blond tresses to get some presidential pampering from acclaimed D.C. stylist Isabelle Goetz.

    Recently released federal fund-raising records show Clinton shelled out $1,500 in April for Goetz to carefully craft her coiffure and another $1,000 for a camera-ready clip in May.

    She passed off both styling sessions as "media production" expenses.

    Clinton was so desperate for Goetz to style her gilded mane, she picked up the scissor siren's $405 travel tab in April and a $38 expenses tab in May.

    Goetz, a fixture at the swank Cristophe salon and the favored stylist of John Kerry, has been clipping the former first lady's locks for years - she's credited for updating Clinton's coif from country to chic. To complement the touch-up of her tresses, Clinton invested another $3,000 for makeup maestro Barbara Lacy to brush on some blush.

    Lacy is a Tinseltown pro who applied the makeup to actors' mugs in movies including "Minority Report," "Runaway Bride," "National Treasure" and "In the Line of Fire."

    She can also take credit for working the West Wing - the NBC version. Clinton paid Lacy an eye-popping $1,600 for some eye-lining in mid-May and another mind-boggling $1,300 for some makeup two weeks later.

    Again, Clinton justified the makeovers as a media production expense.

    Campaign spokesman Ann Lewis said the "costs represent several days' film production for campaign use" - including film that was shown at state conventions and at house parties, and can still be seen on Clinton's re-election Web site.

    The sly salon sessions were just a sliver of the $3.4 million tab to keep her political machine running, including bills of $285,000 for political polling, more than $650,000 for direct mail and $200,000 for postage.

    Now, that isn't a nice thing to say about her husband! :teeth:

    Hillary is like Star Wars' Senator Palpatine because

    1. She's an evil senator, like Senator Palpatine
    2. She wants to be President, like the Senator Palpatine wanted to be Emperor
    3. She'll do anything to get it, like Senator Palpatine
    4. She's sold out to the Dark Side like you-know-who
    5. She kind of looks like Senator Palpatine, except I think she had her teeth done....

    It's amazing what $6K of makeup will do...
