Things I Like: Claire Underwood (House of Cards)

Claire had always been such a strong and important character. I watched the British series afterward, and Claire is by far much better than her United Kingdom counterpart. When the show starts, not many in America know who she is. Wives of House Majority Whips don’t hold nationwide acclaim. But she’s always stood by and supported her husband.

Mainly on a quest for power. Frank has his goals, and so does she. Both of them rarely actually act on the romantic part of their marriage.

When she becomes First Lady, she tries to do a lot of good. And she sees the mistakes and heartache that comes with that. But she becomes most unhappy when Frank becomes too weak to give her more power.

I didn’t like her sudden drama-queen walk-out, though that plot reverses itself as soon as the new season started.

I did like how she ran as Frank’s running-mate in the 2016 election. A pretty novel idea, even for a show about fictional politicians. I liked her as Vice President.

And while the final season wasn’t up to par, I did like her as president.

I’m not quite sure how likable she was supposed to have been, but she won over her enemies in politics.

Though I was expecting Doug Stamper to try to murder her at the very end. I was relieved, when she turned the tables on him with the letter opener. Though I would like to know how her presidency ended, and how the baby turned out.
