Hillary Clinton cast her vote in the New York primary elections near her home in Chappaqua wearing a coat of many colors. Not the coat of many colors from award winning made-for-TV movie by Dolly PartonThe Coat of Many Colors, or the coat of many colors from Joseph, son of Jacob, of the Bible. But it's close!
