At a time when Democrat and Republican voters find it impossible to agree on anything, it's really good to know that this is pretty much a universally accepted fact: Hillary Clinton has a hot nephew. And his existence alone should inspire people from both parties to sit around a campfire holding hands and singing "Kumbaya."

After Clinton spoke at the Democratic National Convention and accepted her nomination for president, many viewers took note as a certain young man in the audience threw his hunky arms around her and gave her a big ol' hug. At first, most of us probably thought, oh, that's cute. An enthusiastic fan. Then, as we continued to stare at him, the realization kicked in: Holy hotness, who is that young Adonis and how is he connected to Clinton?

The mystery man turned out to be Clinton's nephew Tyler Clinton, an 18-year-old model who understands that shirts are entirely optional and overrated.

Tyler is the son of Bill Clinton's half-brother Roger Clinton Jr. He recently graduated from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles and seems more than able to pay some of his bills by making extra money as a model. His attendance at the DNC may have just helped him book more jobs because he's the talk of Twitter right now.


Oh my.

Just so we're clear, at 18, Tyler is barely legal. With that said, judging by the reactions on social media, Hillary can now consider her nephew her personal "in case of emergency, break glass" campaign tool. Think of the possibilities. She can keep young Tyler on speed dial if she finds herself having to deliver bad news to the nation or if she is forced to, yet again, explain away the whole email fiasco. She can just casually walk up to the podium with Tyler beside her (I'm sure no one will think that's odd), absorb the controversy and keep all cameras rolling on her nephew.

Who knows whether Tyler is a powerful enough force to bridge Republican and Democrat voters. But if he can't accomplish that feat, there's no hope left.
