In a reminder of Hillary Clinton’s enduring status as an incomparable cultural-political icon, a great photo of the Secretary of State working on a military jet while wearing sunglasses, which first appeared in TIME last year has recently re-surfaced and gone viral with the help of a funny and admiring Tumblr.

Recently someone pointed me to another, and quite different photo of Hillary, available at the Clinton presidential library website, that’s also been circulating on some smaller blogs (I traced various hat-tips back to this source), and we thought it’d be fun to post. It’s from Arkansas, 1975. The Clintons were still in their 20s, and you can’t make up text messages related to this image because cell phones were still a distant fantasy:
