Clinton as Rocky?In the state that the fictional fighter came from, Hillary Clinton has invoked Rocky’s name to describe herself in her run for the White House.

Addressing a crowd in the city Rocky made famous – Philadelphia – she recalled a famous scene at the Philadelphia Museum of Art that she thought particularly fit for her presidential run. Rocky racing up the steps to the top overlooking the city has inspired many a person, but Clinton’s candidacy may be a stretch.

“Let me tell you something, when it comes to finishing a fight, Rocky and I have a lot in common. I never quit. I never give up. And neither do the American people,” Clinton said.

Funny thing is most audiences probably don’t remember Rocky questioning Apollo’s minister or his qualifications to fight in the same ring as him. Just a thought!
