Main Question or Discussion Point

CHARLESTON, SC—After spending two months accompanying his wife, Hillary, on the campaign trail, former president Bill Clinton announced Monday that he is joining the 2008 presidential race, saying he "could no longer resist the urge."

"My fellow Americans, I am sick and tired of not being president," said Clinton, introducing his wife at a "Hillary '08" rally. "For seven agonizing years, I have sat idly by as others experienced the joys of campaigning, debating, and interacting with the people of this great nation, and I simply cannot take it anymore. I have to be president again. I have to." [continued]

Edit: This is of course a joke and not to be taken seriously.

:rofl:
Clinton told reporters Tuesday that seeing so many "Clinton '08" posters "really got [him] thinking," and said that the fact that he was already wearing a suit, and smiling and waving on the campaign trail was an added motivator.
Old habits die hard.

At first I thought this was a story from some joke tabloid, but if it's in the Onion, it must be true!:rolleyes:

Ivan, you should have stated that this was a joke, a lot of people aren't familiar with The Onion.

Query: Can you really call yourself "smart" if you have no concept of satire or humor?

Some people don't know what The Onion is and some members have posted articles from The Onion believing that they are true. Remember also, that PF is an International community and would not understand.

I'm going to start a news corp. named "The Carrot" and make it completely serious, but crappy. Sort of like Fox News, but crappy on purpose.

Just to screw with people.

That takes all of the fun out of it.

As I recall, we once announced that PF had been sold to the Scientologists.
