Big Dog Says POTUS Knows To Quit When He's Ahead (LOL)

from CNN: http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/01/17/why-did-obama-quit-a-golf-game-with-clinton/?iref=obinsite


"We played thirteen holes at Andrews Air Force Base the other day," Clinton said, "before he had to leave as a result of being reelected and getting ready for the inauguration, the legislature coming in and everything - the Congress coming in."

"He had the lowest score by far he'd ever shot at Andrews," Clinton, speaking at an event in California, continued of Obama. "He was five shots ahead of me after nine holes - but I'm older. I start slow and pick up, so I picked up four of those strokes in the first three holes of the back nine."

That left him within striking distance when Obama pulled his move.

"I'm only one down and he leaves at (hole) thirteen - says, 'Gotta go,' " Clinton continued, laughing.

2. gotta say

. . . how proud I am of the gracious and respectful way that Barack Obama has accepted the former president's counsel. It isn't as if Bill Clinton is completely guileless in the relationship, as he's also obligated to the present and future political needs of his own first lady. Their close, personal, and productive relationship looks absolutely genuine and meaningful. They really are, as you say, madokie, good men; two of the best in presidential politics.

And who do the Repubs have to answer with?

Wow.

3. I loved it when Pres. Clinton was talking about his "unending quest for self-improvement" when

talking about Hillary. Cracked me up and I'm sure she had a good laugh also.
