Is it just me, or does anyone else think the writers are attempting to personify Hillary Clinton through Nikki? I mean, similarity 1) she is now running for office 2) the new hair do 3) all of the power suits she has been wearing and 4)Nikki has gotten a lot more aggressive lately. Am I totally off or does anyone else see it as well?

Absolutely! They are just trying to cash in on the Hillary Clinton presidential candidate run. I had no idea that Nikki was even capable of being powerful. I can remember ten or fifteen years ago, when she was struggling with back pain and became a drunk on vodka. It was not a pretty picture. I've always thought that she was kind of a weaker character, though. No. spine. All whine! She always seems to be letting some guy take advantage of her, or leave her. Especially Victor. So, I guess I'm glad that they've toughened her up. I've been away from the show for awhile, so I missed a lot.

I noticed that, as well. It didn't take long for her to get the new do once this "senator story" got started. I don't like the way she is behaving either.

You are totally right on, I can't stand the new Nikki, the new hairdo is okay, but I hated that she turned Phyllis in, good god that is her daughter-in-law what was she thinking? and how she is fighting with Victor, I wish she would go back to the old Nikki I liked her better.
