President Obama had lunch with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday, and they ate salads like Democrats. The photo shows they ate salads on square plates in the summer shade and laughed in the breezy way all chronicled so perfectly by The Hairpin in the classic post, "Women Laughing Alone with Salad." (While there were no beverages on the table at the time the photograph was taken, they did get their own salt and pepper shakers.) Perhaps the photo resembles the not-quite-sincere joy of stock photos because Clinton has been in the news recently for a not-so-joyous association with her aide, Huma Abedin, who is standing by her sexting husband, Anthony Weiner, in the New York City mayor's race.
