(Newser) – Just when you thought she couldn't get any cooler, it turns out Hillary Clinton apparently isn't even subject to normal bodily functions. The secretary of state doesn't sweat, according to a reporter from Condé Nast Traveler who went to Asia with her. "No matter how high the heat, not a drop nor a drip nor a bead nor so much as the faintest glisten can be detected anywhere about her person," writes Kevin Doyle.

At the Atlantic Wire, John Hudson writes that it sounds like political spin dished out by Clinton's people trying to push the "she never loses her cool" theme. And Doyle does point out that her aides and the press corps like to broadcast the sweat tidbit—not to mention her "superhuman stamina, uncommon thoughtfulness, and ... steel-trap mind." Still, Hudson's Googling turns up no images of Clinton sweating, despite her years in the spotlight. (Read more Hillary Clinton stories.)
