Oh my God, look! It’s a ten eight page article on Bill Clinton. I guess the New York Times needed to a) fill up space, and b) get the salesnumbers up or something. Because what sells faster than a Clinton piece? Well, an Obama or a Princess Diana piece might…but only barely. The article starts off by following Mr. Clinton on a trip through Lima, Peru, while he is shopping for souvenirs for family and friends, and I particularly liked this couple of sentences:
Clinton selected one he thought would be great for his friend, Frank Giustra, the Canadian mining mogul, to give to Giustra’s girlfriend. Clinton said he likes picking out gifts for his friends’ wives and girlfriends.
Wink, wink; nudge, nudge. Clinton…women…get it?! Of course you get it. And if you don’t, you’re probably way too young, or completely out of the loop when it comes to American political drama.
If you’re interested in the dynamics of a former President living life while his First Lady is heading up the State Department, this article has a few insights. So you can read on without any further mention of Clintonian tendencies to inadvertently charm women.
