Hillary says Bill could be 'first mate'
The Times of India ^ | July 4, 2003 | RASHMEE Z AHMED

Posted on 07/04/2003 9:14:17 AM PDT by HAL9000

LONDON: Any man lucky enough to get married to America's future first female president could be designated "first mate" Hillary Clinton has said, in what is being seen as a likely and memorable job description for Bill Clinton, come 2008.

But the aspirational words, casually tossed off here and set to reverberate around the world, may be only the second of Hillary's most newsworthy achievements as she plugs her newly-published, bestselling memoirs in the UK .

She has already outsigned former rival Monica Lewinsky in the space of just a few hours in London , by autographing more books for more adoring fans to buy and keep.

Four years ago, Lewinsky set something of a London book-signing record with 'Monica's Story', her juicy revelations on the Oval Office trysts. Signing an average of eight books per minute at Harrods, the venerable, posh London store, Bill Clinton's former playmate was forced to retire in tears.

But the former White House intern has been put in the shade by the admirably-composed, networked and plugged-in former first lady, who has been vowing the UK and promising to sign 700 books in 90 minutes.

Hillary's memoirs, Living History , have already set a record as the fastest-selling non-fiction book ever, with Britain accounting for its second-biggest sales after the US .  

Her UK triumphs come even as she made an exaggerated plea for Bill and herself to "reclaim the zone of privacy".

On Thursday, fans in central London queued for up to five hours outside a leading bookstore, simply for the pleasure of seeing "a future US president".

Hillary's British successes come as the Clinton team works its way all this week into ecstatic column inches across the British press. Just days ago, the former president, partnered British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Nelson Mandela at a landmark London dinner marking the centenary of the Rhodes scholarships. As his wife recounts in her memoirs, Bill, a former Rhodes Scholar himself, left Oxford without a degree, only to return to the US looking like a Viking.

On Friday, Hillary took to the British airwaves to relive her "pain" and sorrow at Bill's semi-romance with Lewinsky, recalling how she underwent a period of not speaking to him.

All that ended, however, she recounted, when she helped Bill write an important speech, as always.

I think Capt."Black Heart" Hillary will have her "first mate" walking the plank long before her White House run.

"First mate. Fair enough. Mating is his hobby..."

Yeah, but wouldn't he actually have to "mate" with his spouse after she was inaugurated? That ain't gonna happen.

Hillary has fallen on Amazon.com's Best Seller List. Leading the group is the new Harry Potter book and Ann Coulter's well research non fiction book Treason. Hillary is number 9. Reminds me of the Beetle song in the early 1970's where there is strange repeated chanting of "Number 9" over and over.

Someone (whom I consider reliable) told me about 4 years ago that HRC, while on an overseas goodwill trip as First Lady, approached a young "good-looking Asian-American" male Embassy officer and invited him to her hotel room. The guy did not take HRC up on the offer.

I wish he had and wrote a book about it.

She would have to. It would be way too easy for the opposition to use "Do you really want 4 more years of White House Blue Dress sex scandals? Only now he's first mate with even more time to not engange in sex relations?"

Who gives a rat's ass what either of them say?

I'm only glad that when they open their yaps, it sucks the oxygen away from the nine Rat candidates. I'm waiting for one of the nine to start visibly distancing themselves from the Clintoons, just as a way of reversing the atmospheric pressure.

First lady is replaced with "first mate"? That sounds horrible. Why wouldn't it be "first husband" or "first man" or "First Gentleman "( the freepers would love calling bill that). What's with this first mate, stuff? Sounds like something form the navy. Or maybe national geographic or the zoo. "the tiger and his mate"

Maybe it was a reverse Madame Butterfly deal. A few weeks ago, Bo Dietl was on Imus and he said that he is good friends with a big Dem donor. This man let HRC use his guest house and she and another gal,spent many quality hours behind closed doors. Dietl,in his customary manner,said the donor had evidence it was a "lesbianic" liason and should HRC run for prez,the donor would make the details public.

So Hitlery has signed more copies of her book. What an outstanding accomplishment? I thought her job as a Senator would be more important; but I guess not.

Doesn't Hitlery mean "jail mate" instead of "first mate"?

"When will these people ever go away? Do we have to constantly be reminded of the sordid, trashy personal lives of the Clintons? Will it ever end?"

They will go away when they are finally made responsible for their actions. I think time in the clink would be very appropriate.

Perhaps it was a wise decision. If he accepted invitation, he might ended as a victim of armed robbery in Washington DC restaurant.

I do not want "her" as President. (foot stomp) I don't care if the rest of the world approves of her, or not. She's the anti-Christ, Evita Peron and a Hitler-wannabe rolled into one person.

I din't read all the posts so maybe this has been said.

I'm not sure Bubba could be VP. It would put him first in line for the Presidency should Hitlery have a nervous breakdown and become incapacitated. (I do think she has a tinge of insanity NOW).

My brother sailed many times as "First Mate". IF Hitlery used that phrase, she meant it in a derogatory manner. As Captain, whatever she ordered would have to be met with the standard "Yes, Sir".

Kinda fits in with her derogatory Viking statement (Like she looked good!!) Was the Viking story a freudian slip??

Since then she's been researching a new book about the private sector: "How to Suckseed in Business".

I'm trying not to get to worked up about this because it is a long way off. However, I think she will smash her demoncratic challengers yet lose decisively against whomever the pubs nominate. There are enough people who unconditionally hate her that I don't think she has a chance. That being said, 1992 still gives me heartburn. And as everyone knows, 2008 is an eternity in politics.

Well ... just in case you all haven't heard, while Hitlery was signing books, Sid Vicious was over meeting with Tony Blair. It seems Sid was there to deliver a message that it would be best for Tony to drop his allegience to Bush. According to Sid, the next few months were going to be contentious and Tony would want to be on the right side.

Ann Coulter was right in "Treason" - because here was a UNITED STATES CITIZEN in a foreign country, telling the leader of a foreign country that he (Tony) should BETRAY HIS (Sid's) PRESIDENT.

Bill Clinton does like mating alright, but didn't he already do that in the White House? Surely he wants to move on to other places now for his mile high club aspirations.

I didn't see the actual quote either.
Fastest selling book ever is it? How come it isn't on the top of every best seller list then?
Why do they pretend Hillary is signing books as people bring them to her?
Everything that surrounds Her Heinous is a lie.
