Hillary Clinton, in a desperate effort to show America that she’s “just like us,” ate at a Chipotle restaurant in Ohio during her road trip to Iowa.
The New York Times reported Monday — with undisguised, near-fawning admiration — that Clinton stopped at the Maumee, Ohio, restaurant, and nobody recognized her.
In fact, Charles Wright, the manager, wasn’t even aware Clinton was in the establishment until he was called by New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who tweeted a security photo of the former first lady, bedecked with sunglasses and staring at some electronic device in her hand.

“The thing is, she has these dark sunglasses on,” Wright told the newspaper. “She just was another lady.”
Clinton announced her candidacy for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination on Sunday using video and social media.

Not wanting to give the impression that she’s avoiding public appearances, she is driving from her home in Chappaqua, New York to Monticello, Iowa in a van dubbed “Scooby” after the Mystery Machine, used in the old “Scooby Doo” cartoons.
Clinton found herself hungry and in need of a meal, but without benefit of first-class seating and an onboard kitchen typically found on her regular mode of transportation— private jets.
Accompanied by just two aides and two Secret Service agents, Clinton ate at a quick service restaurant, just like the little people.
She even waited in line and ordered food. But did she make eye contact with the cashier? The photos speak for themselves.

Now Clinton can claim has even something in common with conservative pundit Charles C.W. Cooke.

America can rest at ease, because Hillary Clinton eats food like everyone else, and even dines like the hoi polloi.
