Does Saddam need another lawyer?
She's from Park Ridge Il.
I know she's from Illinois. However, a New Yorker making fun of Southerners with respect to the Clintons takes some chutzpah. Only California or a Northeastern state would have been dumb enough to elect a Clinton to the Senate...they'd never get elected dog catcher in the South these days.
Hey, I never said she was worth the salt in my sweat.
It wouldn't surprise me if Clinton cut a deal with the bar, such that it would lift the suspension but Clinton would then voluntarily retire his license or at least go on "inactive" status. He has never really practiced law anyhow, so this would cost him nothing, and if it spares him from publicly having to jump through some hoops to have his license reinstated, so much the better from his standpoint.
Crooked weinie Clinton was convicted of a FELONY and paid the fine. He is now and always will be a convicted FELON. Do Felons get law liscenses and get to vote???????
I'm curious - did bj ever actually practice law? In fact, has he ever had a real job in the private sector?
Does he even care?
Hell why get all sweaty at a trial when you can be Prince Dianna the international jetsetter with women throwing themselves at your feet and guys paying to hear your every word.
Practice law my arse!~}
Unfortunately, he was only charged with civil contempt. He was immune from criminal prosecution while in office.

NY Times headline on the fifth anniversary? waiting...waiting...waiting...
They're not supposed to but they do. An article was posted here today about a convicted narcotics peddler in Denver who served no time, got admitted to law school, got admitted to the bar and just got a presidential pardon.
The Arkansas bar had to be dragged kicking and screaming just to give Clinton a slap on the wrist -- lawsuits, letter-writing campaigns, loads of adverse publicity. I know. I was a part of it.
And I still haven't heard whether he ever paid the chump change fine. If he hasn't yet done that, he will probably have to do it when he re-applies for his license.
He taught law....
However, we can truthfully call him the impeached, disgraced, (temporarily) disbarred, adulterous, sexual predator presibent." That's at least something.
If they report it at all, it will either be buried in the middle of a related article about him or briefly alluded to on page E37. In either case, the NYT will imply that the lifting of his suspension is the same as exoneration.
depends on what your definition of "job" is.
Like the old saying goes 99% of practicing lawyers give the honest 1% of lawyers a bad name.
At a million dollars a speech I doubt Billy will be chasing ambulances.
Thanks for his address I just sent him a pizza with anchovies
