Hillary Rodham Clinton, the junior United States Senator from New York, and a candidate for the Democratic nomination in the 2008 presidential election, has announced that if she is not elected President she will run for Pope.
Clinton was speaking Sunday to a packed congregation in the First African Methodist Episcopal Church. There was a shocked response from the members of the famous black church in the Crenshaw District of Los Angeles. Trying desperately to backpedal Clinton said she thought all poor people were Catholic, especially those type of people who were in that church.
It was further pointed out to Mrs. Clinton that she is not Catholic and she would have to be a Catholic in order to be Pope. The Senator, known for her cutting retorts, simply said, "That never stopped Ratzinger so why should it stop me".
Meanwhile, former President Bill Clinton announced today that he is immediately leaving for a year long tour of the Bahamas.
