MALE, Maldives (AP) -

Former President Clinton has canceled his trip to tsunami-hit areas of Maldives because of exhaustion, a U.N. official said Saturday.

Cherie Hart, spokesman for the U.N. Development Program and coordinator of Clinton's visit, said the former president, who underwent a heart bypass operation in September, was not sick.

"He's plain pooped and he wants to slow the schedule down," Hart said.

Clinton, who recently was appointed U.N. special envoy for tsunami recovery, will keep his scheduled appointments in the Maldives, but will not tour areas devastated by December's giant wave.

Heard the news on Fox. My first thought is that he's exhausted from not being PAID to make the trip.

Ever the cynic where clintbilly is concerned.

He's probably tired from all the extracurricular activity,
it's not called, "Around the World" for nothing.

POOR ENGLISH BUT HE SURE IS.

"He's plain poop and he wants to slow the schedule down," Hart said.

Maybe this is a way to dodge the lawsuit from that Italian restaurant he stiffed.

He'll claim "exhaustion" forced him to skip out on the reservations without the courtesy of cancelling them.

No... they'll wait and opportunistically time that closer to HRC '08. She'll be playing Florence Nightingale between casting votes in the Senate and attending county fairs in Iowa.

" He met for 45 minutes with President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom before taking a speed boat on choppy seas
to the luxury resort of Kurumba, about 10 minutes away."

Must be tough. Private jets and 5 star resorts.
Hope the tsumani victims weren't holding their breath for help from the great white dope.

This doesn't bode well if he wants to be UN Sec. General!

Seriously, I wish him good health, and I wish Bill & Hillary would retire to the farm and and stay out of politics!
