Fancy a night on the town with Bill Clinton?

The most fun you could have with or without sending your clothes to the dry cleaners afterwards, I imagine. Probably not a good idea for a woman though.

Anyway, always supposing one could get around American electoral donations law, the prospect is out there:

"Continuing to prove she's savvy as well as smart, Hillary Clinton is using the American Idol finale as a draw to help pay off her debts from her presidential campaign. Anyone who makes an online contribution will be entered into a contest to win two tickets to the show's last episode in Los Angeles.

Not an Idol fanatic? You can also enter to win a day with President Clinton and a fun-filled weekend in New York. The price tag on these two potential prizes is actually dirt cheap! The lowest contribution is only five dollars".

I cannot find a reference to having wheeled out this anecdote before, and even if I have, it bears repeating:

Back in '96 when Bob Dole was running for the Big One, his spin boys and gals put it about that Bill's diet should be a cause for concern, and Carville (?) replied, "Who do you want ordering the pizza? Let's face it, Dole's strictly a boiled chicken kinda guy". From memory, and I cannot lay hands on the reference. Found a variant here, but there's no boiled chicken reference.

Do you win the prize but no cigar?

"..Carville (?).."James Carville, the American answer to Alastair Campbell. Twice as loud, crude and dirty...

Yup, the ragin' Cajun himself. The question mark was for whether he was the author. I would argue that AC is the low rent British carbon copy rather than vice versa.
