Huma Abedin

Hillary Clinton has two shadows: her own and Abedin, 35, a former Clinton White House intern who has trailed her boss from the U.S. Senate to the campaign trail to foreign capitals. In her Foggy Bottom post, Abedin — who wedded New York Congressman Anthony Weiner last summer (Bill Clinton presided) — serves as a senior Clinton adviser as well as a friend and confidante.
