Huma Abedin is Senator Hillary Clinton‘s right hand woman. She began as an intern for the White House in 1996 and landed an assignment with the First Lady. Since then she has risen to the role of personal aide. Where you see Hillary you can expect to see Abedin in close proximity.
Abedin was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan to an Indian father and Pakistani mother. The family relocated to Saudi Arabia when Huma was a toddler. She returned to the United States to attend George Washington University.
Besides her superior intellect, Abedin is also gorgeous. She posed for Vogue Magazine in 2007 and the pictures are stunning. She is rumored to be dating New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, a Democrat who is positioning himself to have a run for NYC mayor in 2009.
According to a short blurb in late January 2008 in the New York Post Page Six Gossip:
Huma Abedin, the traveling aide who is rarely out of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s sight, has been seen with bachelor Rep. Anthony Weiner on the campaign trail. Shortly before Clinton arrived for a fund-raiser Thursday night at the Hiro club in the Meatpacking District, Abedin was spotted going into the Maritime Hotel around the corner with Weiner. If they were trying to keep their affair a secret, you’d think they’d find someplace where political reporters wouldn’t be walking by.
UPDATE July 10, 2010: Abedin and Weiner, 44, became engaged to be married on May 23, 2009. On July 10, 2010, the couple exchanged vows in Huntington, New York in an early evening ceremony, officiated by former President Bill Clinton. Huma is the long time aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
