Here we go again. According to the smartest people in the room, it's manifest that Hillary Rodham Clinton will be the Democrat Party's nominee for president in 2016. You can bet your nest egg on it. Of course, we've heard that before, and many who bet their nest eggs on Barack Obama, no longer have one, even though he did what seemed impossible by defeating the "inevitable" Mrs. Clinton.
Certainly, history shows that the CW (conventional wisdom) isn't always correct, but still, these days, all the buzz on the Democrat side is about Hillary. Recent polls show most Democrats want Hillary to be their nominee. What if she does become president? That raises a question, one that surely is on everyone's minds. No, not whether the second President Clinton will finally realize that it DOES make a difference when four Americans are killed in a terrorist attack, although we can only hope that she would do so. That's important, but the real burning question is "what about Bill?" Bill has no doubt been the subject of some burning questions, or questions about burning, but it was nothing that a short course of antibiotics wouldn't clear up.
Bill Clinton has been called a lot of things, but "First Gentleman" is not one of them. Even when he was called a gentleman, it was merely part of a ceremonial routine. Of course, we haven't ever had a "First Gentleman." What would it be like if Bubba were not only the first elected American president ever to be impeached, but also the first man in American history to be the "First Gentleman?" Consider the possibilities:
- Announces that First Gentleman's office will henceforth be responsible for hiring and supervising all White House interns. (Coincidentally, all interns hired are females in their early twenties.
- First Gentleman's staff consists of 24 former Hooters' girls.
- Announces a new initiative designed to help single mothers, Temporary Assistance To Anonymous Strippers, "TATAS."
- Redecorates White House to look like Graceland
- Adds Astroturf to all official Presidential vehicles
- In order to enhance our relations with our European allies, organizes a week-long summit with the 3 women vying for the title of "First Lady" in France
- Cigars for everyone!
The great thing about having Bill Clinton in a position of influence is that he can serve as a great role model, demonstrating the possibility of redemption. If a man can go from being an acknowledged sexual predator and serial liar, and a disgraced impeached president to a senior statesman and beloved sage, and eventually "First Gentleman," anything is possible.
