WATCH: Barbara Walters Grills Hillary Clinton About Her Hair
Barbara Walters revealed her ten most fascinating people of 2012 on ABC last night and, much to no one’s surprise, Hillary Clinton was one of them.

“I know that its one of the great fascinations of our time, much to my amazement.”

It just got to be really burdensome to try and find a hairdresser in some city somewhere, so I said, ‘Enough. We’re just going to try to go as simple as possible.’ It became simpler to just grow it so that I can pull it back, and I can stick rollers in.”
