Sen. Hillary Clinton gave President-elect Barack Obama's his first brazilian bikini wax today. But his aides are becoming exasperated by the Clinton camp's demands that each pubic hair be individually plucked by former President Bill Clinton.
There are signs, however, that the Clintons may move decisively to wax and pluck all the White House aides in coming days, clearing the way for a better bikini line.
Obama isn't likely to let Bill go straight down and pluck unless he's given assurances that Bill Clinton's plucking won't create pain around the testicles, according to a person familiar with waxing.
Over the weekend, Obama advisers began to get a little scratchy about the Clintons' response to plucking requests. Friends outside government said it seems reasonable for a couple to want to do a good job. The ball is very much in their court, but the former president's plucking have been a major point of sensitivity from Day One," the well-connected Democratic official explained.
