Wall Street Kernel - It was recently disclosed, (but don't tell Hillary) that former President Bill Clinton has secretly made a deal with the Barack Obama camp to begin backing Senator Obama for the Democratic nomination for President, doing all in his power to get Obama elected President of the United States.
Asked who would be responsible for the First Lady's duties if she were elected President, Hillary replied, "Well, somebody has to do it." Bill prudently read the smoke signals, writing on the wall, the facts as he saw them, hit the brakes, turned on a dime and secretly headed for the Obama camp.
Backing Obama could give Clinton a cabinet position. Backing Hillary would give him the dubious title of First Lady; not dealing with China, but china; or Turkey, but the bird. Quoting Woody Allen when proclaiming his love for Mia Farrow's daughter, Soon-Yi, "Look, the heart goes where the heart has to go." Or something like that.
Obama was heard to reply, "Done deal. Get me the nomination and I'll have the audacity to to make you the Vice President of the United States. Don't tell Hillary."
Through telephone surveillance taps used to capture al Qaeda terrorists, Dick Cheney discovered that Bill Clinton was working his way into the Obama camp, and edging Cheney out of his fiefdom as Vice President. He placed an emergency call to Barack Obama, promising him the Presidency if Cheney remain Vice President.
"I believe in the audacity of hope, but the inconvenient truth is, you are a Republican."
"I can switch. Joe Lieberman switched. Look, the heart goes where the feet take it. Or something like that. But don't tell Hillary."
Laura Bush called next saying she liked being First Lady and all the job entails, including policing the silverware after public functions, frisking each guest in the audacity of finding stolen butter knives - 72 so far - having her own private plane, the dumpy safe Republican wardrobe and she could guarantee the long suffering wife's vote. "Your wife can continue with her law practice in Chicago, but let me stay on the job."
"What about George?"
"Look, honey, this heart took a detour miles ago. Life is short. Tell that to Hillary."
