Washington, May 30 : A 32-year-old American beauty Huma Abedin, born to an Indian father and a Pakistani mother, is making headlines these days, not only because she is Hillary Clinton's "body woman", but because she is dating a US Congressman who harbours ambitions for running for the New York mayor post.
The Jewish Congressman Raymond Wiener is known for his anti-Muslim views.
Owing to her extraordinary good looks she has got space on the "Vogue" magazine, and has been a close aide to Hillary since 1996 when she was an intern.
Replying to a question why he was spending all the time on the road campaigning for Clinton, the 43-year-old bachelor Wiener said, "It's largely because I'm dating Huma."
In a New York tabloid profile last year, Huma was described "a sort of mythical figure" who never has a hair out of place or a wrinkle in her Prada suit and who can hush a crowd of rambunctious reporters with a single look.
"I think there's some dispute as to whether Huma's actually human or not," an admiring Weiner said then. Huma was an intern at First Lady Hillary Clinton's office in 1996 and has since become her "indispensable right hand," whose side she rarely leaves. There have also been rumours about the nature of the relationship between the two women.
