FROM Linda Bloodworth-Thomason
Linda Bloodworth-Thomason: Changing Minds through Film Linda Bloodworth-Thomason is well-known in Hollywood not only as the creator of several sitcoms -- including the CBS hit Designing Women -- but as a longtime friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton. She and her husband, Harry Thomason, have played major roles in shaping the image that the Clintons present to the public. Linda has made campaign films for both of them, including the landmark 14-minute movie The Man From Hope which may have helped Bill first win the presidency. Now, Bloodworth-Thomason wants to sway public opinion on gay marriage with her new documentary Bridegroom (available on Netflix).
