U.S. Senator, Joe Biden Jr's comment yesterday that Illinois Senator Barack Obama was "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," quickly turned into yesterday's news after U.S. senator from New York, Hilary Clinton revealed that she and Obama were having an affair.
The female senator, in an interview with reporters, gathered her thoughts and addressed the crowd directly which included the Delaware senator, raising her hands in front of her about 12 inches apart and saying, "Ok, Joe are you ready for this? Obama was this long."
Members of the media could not stop laughing after the incident naming the senator from New York everything from Washington's new "deep throat" to the Jenna Jamison of Capitol Hill. It was not thought that the senator was not exaggerating since she has a reputation to being a pretty straight shooter.
Other members of congress and their members who were present at the press conference just stood there in disbelief and shook their heads. Reporters could not discern if the head shaking was the result of disbelief of senator from New York's candor and nerve, or if they couldn't believe that Obama was actually that long.
"You know, we're getting to the point where we never know what is going to come out of the Clinton's mouths," said Senator John McCain from Arizona. "No pun intended, but these two are a different breed."
It has been surmised that both Clintons, children of the '60's, were used to this type of loose sexual behavior and actually preferred to "spread the love" around to everyone, being true liberals in every sense of the word.
Between November 15th, 1995 and April 7th, 1996, it was revealed that President Bill Clinton was having an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinski in which the president was quoted as saying: "I inserted the cigar case, but didn't inhale."
Reporters tried to catch up with the former president to get remarks about his wife and Obama, but he was not available for comment.
Critics say that the affair should not hurt Clinton's chance at seeking the White House and, if anything, should increase her chances proving, once again, that she can succeed at man's game.
When asked if she had any regrets about the affair, Hilary simply said she wished she could have understood the man behind the 7-11 counter when he apparently instructed her on the size of condoms available on the shelves.
She is expected to have a pregnancy test later this week.
