Outgoing Miss America: We’re more alike than different


ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Asked about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during her onstage interview at last year’s Miss America pageant, Savvy Shields turned heads on the judge’s panel and across the country by offering some advice to both political parties: Stop arguing and start compromising.

It was that response that may have put her over the top to become Miss America 2017.

Now, with her reign to end in just about a week, the former Miss Arkansas says the nation is not as divided as it may seem.

“We’re a lot more similar than we think we are,” she told The Associated Press in one of her final interviews before her successor is crowned Sept. 10.

Shields says she’s been in a different state every 48 hours for the past 12 months, logging thousands of airline miles and living out of suitcases as she crisscrosses the country, meeting people from all walks of life.
