BILL AND HILLARY POWER GRAB? YOU BETTCHA!

I have written previously (here and here, as but two examples) on the emerging alignment of Bill Clinton's and Hillary Clinton's future political ambitions to conquer the world in inimitable tag-team fashion (and, yes, there would have to be a rule's change to accomodate the former president); but, my multiple posts on the subject have either gone unnoticed or unheeded, or have been rejected outright.

What am I talking about? To wit: Bill Clinton succeeding Kofi Annan as Secretary-General of the United Nations and Hillary Clinton becoming in January, 2009, the President of the United States.

Preposterous?

I trust there's a lot of respect out there for columnist Mark Steyn. Have you read this column of his? In it, he writes the following:

The wierdest political marriage of the day has got a lot less creepier since they've been living in separate jurisdictions; for Hill to move into the White House in Washington just as Bill becomes U.N. Secretary-General in New York would seem perfect for their marital equilibrium and so unlikely it's almost guaranteed to happen.
Let's see now, for those "Doubting Thomases" among you: Bill Clinton has conveniently become a United Nations Special Envoy and Hillary Clinton has become most assuredly the odds-on-favorite to wrest the Democratic Party's presidential nomination in 2008, enough so, in fact, that we center-right prognosticators are conceding the point and beginning to get our heavy artillary into place!

I'd say the stars are indeed in alignment provided Bill Clinton's health holds out and Hillary continues her careful choreography to the center of the political spectrum.

Somehow I think Bill and Hillary may be singing the following under their breath when they take their respective morning ablutions:

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

John Lennon may have imagined it, but we had better avert it.
