If you missed the magnificent television segment that was Mindy Kaling and Bill Clinton’s Holiday Book Club, then allow us to briefly recap: The Today show put Kaling and Clinton on side-by-side stools and made them talk about books. And it was hilarious. Bill Clinton recommended Marcus Aurelius, and Mindy gave him some side-eye, and then Bill expressed some interest in reading Terry Richardson’s Lady Gaga book. There was also a fair amount of giggling. Anyway, Kaling was on Conan last night to discuss her own book, and she had some thoughts to share about the experience. Such as: “If he was gonna throw away a marriage, of anyone else, I was like, ‘I think I have a shot at this.’” Bill’s desperate post-segment search for Mindy might back that up, but there is only one way to find out for sure. And that way is: more book club.
