Back in the saddle again
I snagged this one from Daypop: Inside sources at CBS say Bill Clinton is being seriously considered to replace the retiring Bryant Gumbel on "The Early Show".

"America's love affair with Bill Clinton started in the summer of 1992, when candidate Clinton whipped out his sax on Arsenio Hall's late night talk show." Then quickly ended (for some) when he whipped out his sex and cigars in the Oval Office...

"Bill even bragged, unlike Bryant and most broadcasters, he does not need a teleprompter. He said, 'I gave the State of the Union and they didn't have a teleprompter. I had to stand up there and fake it for 15 minutes before a hundred million people. Some people think I faked it for eight years before a hundred million people.'" And we all know I learned how to fake it from the master. Hillary's obviously been doing it for years...

If Bill gets this gig, I may actually get up and watch TV in the mornings! I can just squint really hard and pretend he's President again. A girl can dream, can't she?

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

total gimick! but one that would work!! ha! look out katie and matt!

Oh great, just what we need, a former President, ANY President, with their own bully pulpit. It's just bad business, esecially if the current leader of the free world is less than... eloquent.

Harry -- that's exactly why I think it's so brilliant! It would be a daily reminder of just what the American people have done to themselves by electing Georgey-boy! Maybe people might actually think before pushing a button, pulling a lever, or punching a ballot (sometimes more than once in my state) the next time around...

The former president, and he doesn't even know how many people live in this country!

I liked having a president who was at least articulate.

mg, I think he was referring to Nielson ratings TV numbers and not the general population. ;-)

Ooooh! I'd be Tivo'ing it just to get some Clinton time! Anything to help me recover from Duhhhbya. Could it be true? It's almost too good!

Do you think 100 million Americans watch the State of the Union address? If that was what Bill was talkin' about, he still got it wrong; the average SotUA gets only about 50 million viewers.

Maybe all that Florida math down here is rubbing off on him? Heh.

Ooh boy, just want I want, more Clinton. I wonder how he can seduce the CBS interns and debase the entire company?

I wanna grow up to be...be a debaser.

argh! watch out hillary, he'll be after katie next. what a joke. i guess i'm in the minority here, but somehow i believe there is someone in the u.s. of a. that could do better than him, surely they could find that person. perhaps a woman?

I'd watch only I could find a way to impeach him from that show. hehehe

I think it would be a fitting job for him. I mean if there's any President that I could see hamming it up on a Morning TV show instead of say, some Jimmy Carter-esque social work, it would definitely be Mr. Bill. The man who always cared more about himself and his little Willy than he did the people he was elected to serve.

I only wish he had gone into the entertainment industry earlier and just skipped the whole "publicity tour" he seems to think of his 8 years as. I mean talking about "faking" it! Every day he just proves how little he really respected the office he held and the work he
did took credit for.
