Senator Clinton. . . Bill?

Karl E. Meyer and Shareen Blair Brysac have an Op-Ed in today's Washington Post in which they advocate replacing Hillary Clinton with husband Bill in the Senate, should she take a highly speculated offer to serve as Secretary of State for Obama. I am not sure what to make of this. Are the authors seeking attention through a "stunt"? Does the Washington Post desperately need to shift papers and generate web traffic? Or, is this a brilliant idea, assuming that Bill could suppress his ego and accept the position if Governor Patterson decided (or was forced) to appoint him? I think I will not touch this beyond simply raising questions. Doing more requires too much thought for a holiday!

Well, it would be great seeing Bubba in action. And the only thing that could possibly overshadow Obama is Hillary in his Cabinet and Bill in the Senate. So maybe this is cool....

PS: I never really understood the hype surrounding Bill in terms of sexuality. But that picture is rather attractive.

I say, go for it! Let the gladiator games begin!

We'll all sit in the stands, munching on honey cakes, with our thumb at the ready and roar our approval or boo our disappointment.

"Those who are about to die, salute you!"

As an aside, I think this is just the news media on hallucinatory mushrooms.
