Four More Years For Clinton

DO you suppose that without the presidency and a public face Bill and Hillary would remain married? Has a divorcee ever been President? Or the President got divorced while in office? Maybe that could be another first:

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – The force dubbed “Billary”—the duo of former President Clinton and his leading Democratic candidate wife—argued on Tuesday for a third term in the White House, telling Iowa voters a return to the Clinton years is the best remedy for the Bush era.

“Yesterday’s news was pretty good,” said Bill Clinton, referring to his time in office and taking a jab at critics who call the former first couple old news.

In a joint appearance, the Clintons sought to give Hillary Rodham Clinton the advantages of quasi-incumbency while portraying her as an agent of change. It’s a difficult balance in Iowa, site of the first caucus and where Sen. Clinton faces a tough challenge from two fresher faces: Barack Obama and John Edwards.

“I know that some of you are very excited about the fact that we have a chance to make history together and elect the first woman president in the United States,” she said, drawing the most enthusiastic applause of her half-hour speech. “Well, I’m excited by that, too. But I’m not running because I’m a woman. I’m running because I think I’m the best qualified and experienced person to hit the ground running in January 2009.”
