Hillary Clinton plays Game Boy in this 1993 photo

You already know that Hillary Clinton is a candidate for the 2016 U.S. presidential election, a former Secretary of State, and a serious texter. But apparently she was using handheld electronics to kill time on airplane rides long before she got her BlackBerry.

That's Hillary Clinton tapping away on an original Game Boy, in this photo published on the William J. Clinton Presidential Library's Instagram. Not pictured: Bill Clinton calls a Joint Chiefs of Staff meeting to determine whether there is, in fact, a cheat code to see Sonya Blade naked.

The then-First-Lady looks like she's having fun, though unfortunately the caption doesn't mention which game she's playing. Given that Pokemon wasn't around in 1993, I'd put my money on Tetris. I just hope for her sake it wasn't The Final Fantasy Legend, or else the "Hillary caught playing God-killing video game" headlines can't be far off.
