Carey Mulligan as Hillary Rodham Clinton?

Carey Mulligan is said to be in the running to play a young Hillary Rodham Clinton, circa 1975, in an upcoming biopic by director James Ponsoldt, of Smashed fame (infamy?). While we do see a resemblance, we’d like to put the kibosh on this idea and vote for one of the other actresses thought to be in consideration. In particular, Scarlett Johansson, who, having hosted numerous fundraisers for Obama in 2012, as well as the Democratic challenger in New York City’s mayoral race, would probably bring a level of persuasiveness to the role. She already has Clinton’s steely voice down pat.
