(Newser) – Hillary Clinton might be leaving the State Department just in time to start guessing who gets to play her in a movie: A screenplay making the rounds in Hollywood, titled simply Rodham, follows the exploits of a 20-something Hillary Rodham as she balances the pressures of her job (working to impeach Richard Nixon as the youngest attorney at the Justice Department) with her budding romance with a guy (some would-be politician named Bill Clinton), Politico reports.

"There's this incredible irony that she worked on the impeachment process that was used against her husband," screenwriter Young Il Kim, a 39-year-old South Korean native, tells Politico. There's no sign that the script is close to being picked up, though it is No. 4 on the "Black List," a much-watched poll in which 300 film executives name the best unproduced scripts they've seen.

Here comes the GOP again. Get her now before she runs for President. Accuse her of anything that will create chaos, whatever works. We just don't want her in the White House. We don't want a return of Bill Clinton to the White House....get this film out! We want Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh on this right away!
