It’s 3 a.m. – and we know where Bill is
Stop the Presses column by Chris Graham
Funny how Hillary Clinton has turned the momentum of her campaign around with a TV commercial asking America who they would rather have in the White House taking a 3 a.m. phone call.
You know, considering the 3 a.m. phone calls that used to come into the White House back when she lived there.
And I ain’t referring to national-security-type phone calls here, either.
Oh, there’s no doubt that kids across the country were snug safely in their beds when Slick Willie was in the Oval Office.
As was The First Missus.
(Or so The First Mister thought, anyway.)
Is that what the Clinton campaign is trying to get us to imagine with those commercial spots?
She was actually trying to get us to think about the possibility of a terrorist attack or a nuclear missile coming in from somewhere in Eurasia or something even more dastardly than that?
Wow. I hadn’t realized.
Because, you know, they’d left it kind of unsaid there at the end.
But now that you mention it, I can see why we would rather have Hillary in the White House answering the phone at 3 a.m.
She does have experience there that Barack Obama and John McCain would have to catch up on.
Though I don’t know that having experience awkwardly interrupting presidential phone sex is going to be that much of a selling point for more than a handful of voters out there.
