A time traveller has returned from the year 2038, and reports that Hillary Clinton is still touring America and refusing to concede defeat to Barack Obama.
'Yes', a certain Dr. Hoo said, 'she was still doing press conferences and making short bland speeches full of dumb-downed phrases, even though an entire new generation of voters had grown up, and had had seven more presidential elections. Nobody could stop her, not even her ex-husband, it must be some sort of weird addiction.'
At this news, psychiatrists immediately called for Mrs. Clinton's brain to be scanned, for signs of egomania and delusional self-publicity, but current President George W. Bush said: 'Hey, what's wrong with her brain? Nobody ever scanned my one, heck there was no need.' And although Dr. Hoo refused to say who becomes the new President, he did reveal that over the next 30 years most of them will be members of either the Bush, Kennedy or Clinton families, but not of the Windsors.
The republic is 232 years old today.
