BILL CLINTON IS THINNER
Rosy pink? Well, he and Hillary live far, far apart, but aren't they still a remarkable -- yes -- an amazing couple?
Infidelity -- what he did with that pretty girl -- what it cost him, and us, in terms of hope, faith, fidelity, truth -- isn't it still grey with dark spots?
His brilliant mind -- all that, that's sky blue -- his ability to gather, sift and sort information and facts, and create pathways -- and yes, lead the way. He leads the way and gets us walking on the road to a hopeful future.
Even though he looks tired, Bill knows how to talk, how to state and sell -- more than sell -- promote realities. Like a preacher he is -- once he gets started, he won't let go till he's finished sermonizing, and sums it up into a powerful phrase you can't help holding onto.
What power he has no matter what he does -- he does whatever it is, better, I think, than any politician, any leader, any celebrity in the world.
But he does looks older. You wonder if he's okay -- he's had a lot of heart surgery. Say his name and you think busy, busy love life -- you're remembering Jennifer, Monika, and Paula what's-her-name he played around with, while he and Hillary were physically living together.
Is he still sleeping around? How does he manage with that huge schedule of hugely important things he's supporting?
Lust, and personal fulfillment drove him in all the years that we've known him, and now -- do they still drive him now?
Right now he doesn't look like a man who can meet someone at a party, go home with her, and take her to bed. He seems almost too frail.
And Hillary, right now -- she's not frail, but her inconsistent hairdo, her facial expressions -- to me, she seems weary, and unsure of herself.
Even so -- even when they're thousands of miles apart -- she's his spine, he's her spine. If he and she decide to do more about running the county ... Well, they'll do it -- he'll ignite like he did -- when was it, last week?
Yes, he'll fire us up.
Maybe I need to think that, whether it's really true or not. Thanks for giving me that Bill.
