Washington DC - (Rioters): Advisers to wannabe Presidential hopeful Senator Barack Obama are flushed with the toil of a recent 24 hour non-stop pow-wow where they weighed up the pros and cons of rival candidates' 2008 election hope strategies.
And top of their list of worries were persistent rumors that Democratic rival Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton was considering a clitorectomy to secure the US sympathy vote after feedback from her research team said she could not longer rely on Bill's infidelities to propel her into generating enough 'Poor Hill' votes.
"It might get her message across in the female genital mutilation camp at the UN", said a source, "but we still don't know whether it would be a vote-winner in Desmoines, or Sheboygan or even Salt Lake City."
The move is said to be just one of the measures Rodham Clinton is considering as her campaign takes a new twist into the uncharted waters of the 'it-gives-me-no-personal-pleasure-whatsoever-to-do-my-duty-and-launch-my-2008-White House-bid'.
Political spread-yer-legs betting index Aintgottaprayer.com is due to announce its odds on Hillary securing the Dems' nomination and eventual national mandate via the radical proposal after LA surgeons claimed last week that the procedure could now be reversible in the eventual future.
"But does she really want the top job as much as all that?" was the only question on campaign team minds as the war chests began their relentless tumescence on the roll to 2008 glory.
