On the other hand: Maybe he could follow the model of another politician turned talk show host-Jerry Springer. Can you imagine Bill's reflections at the end of an episode featuring cheating spouses? That monologue, surely containing things like "Hillary and I have struggled with these same issues and I feel the pain that these couples are going through," would have to be sent immediately to the Museum of Broadcasting.
Well, they are both fat: According the LA Times Bill Clinton wants his own talk show and would like to become "the next Oprah Winfrey." Finally, a job he is qualified to do. After all, he has eight years experience at faking emotional responses to people's sob stories. This is the logical conclusion of his substance-less presidency. However, in TV terms this may be the worst talk show since the Magic Johnson Hour.
Sickening: The sight of Arafat's temper tantrum at his press conference and the adjoining videos of his police corps celebrating with guns in the air yesterday should leave little doubt about what kind of leader he would be if ever given real power. These resembled the actions of your average despotic thug. Hopefully, his freedom will only be temporary.
