Without Hillary's forgiveness, forget it

By JONATHAN THERIAULT
The Tattoo

Hillary must be ripping.

On Sept 14, Hillary opened the paper to
something that none of us can even imagine. USA
Today ran a special section on the president's
relationship with Ms. Lewinsky and even went as
far to include a labeled diagram of where and
when Mr. Clinton met up with his mistress.

The only way that I personally will forgive the
president is if Hillary does. Otherwise he
should step down.  

I envision her forgiving the president something
like this: they both step out of the chopper
onto the White House lawn. Hillary has her hand
wrapped in ice and Bill is attempting to comfort
his black eye with his hand. Hillary coolly
steps up to the podium and says, "He's
forgiven."

After, she proceeds into the White House,
closing the door behind her so that Bill can
have some privacy while he answers another
barrage of questions from the anxious assembled
media.

If Hillary forgives him, without any sort of
serious reprimand, she will be the biggest loser
on the face of the earth. She has been stepped
on repeatedly.

As it appears now they will get a divorce as
soon as Mr. Clinton's term in office is up, she
will look like she is a fool twice over. Being a
lawyer, Hillary has had her battles in courts,
and I say she goes for the win with this one.

If she doesn't, let Socks, the president's cat,
take office.  There's at least one thing we're
sure of -- he's fixed.
