Bill and Hilary

Politics aside for  a moment, you just gotta love the Clintons. They are sort of the  essence of the phrase -the gift that keeps on giving. Witness the past several days. Bill just got back from a diplomatic tour de force in North Korea. Singlehandedly(maybe not singlehandedly) he obtained the release of two American journalists held by the DPRK. It is the same North Koreans that described  Hilary(the actual Secretary of State, more on that later) as “by no means intelligent” and “a funny lady” . So there. There is  a bit more.  They also took her to task for “remarks unbecoming for her position everywhere  she went since she was sworn in”. Quite different from the reception that Bill got, being treated as almosta head of state.

More, why certainly. A couple of days ago, Hilary was in the Congo and took questions from the audience. ABC News reporter Kirit Radia  reported on this exchange with a Congolese student. Through  a translator  he asked what ” Mr Clinton” thought about  a trade  deal between China  and the Congo. Hilary pretty much lost it. ” You want me to tell you what my husband thinks? My husband is not Secretary of State, I am. If you want my opinion, i will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channeling my husband.” That is just a great exchange. One tiny problem. The translator made  a  slight mistake . The questioner really wanted to know what Mr Obama thought. Now, imagine, if you will, the translation back and  a  puzzled audience wondering why she called the  president her husband.

Meanwhile, where is Bill? How about an early birthday celebration in Las Vegas. Hubba, hubba. Besides with their relatively young ages, it will mean we will probably never have to say, they’re back, because they will never leave.
