Hillary Clinton's recent trip to Israel might have given her a black eye in the press. But that's nothing compared to the two big shiners her political guru, Harold Ickes, is sporting.

Ickes did an Anna Wintour when he flew to New York the other day for the funeral of Josephine LoCicero, the mother of political consultant John LoCicero — wearing dark glasses the whole time.

At first, one mourner assumed that the battle-scarred pol was distraught at the sudden death of his friend's 94-year-old mother. But it turned out that those shades were hiding two big black eyes.

"He said he hit his head," reports one eyewitness. Ickes, perhaps wary of the metaphorical implications of it all, didn't return calls.
