11. what Bill Clinton had to do with it?
how come no one is providing any links? this is the second thread that alludes to Bill Clinton but makes absolutely no sense to those of us who haven't heard anything about what happened.

these threads are pretty worthless without links/factual info, it's nothing but static. sorry, but it's a little frustrating.

:throws a tantrum: <---- jk :P

  - No Drama Obama.  BlooInBloo   Aug-04-09 02:33 PM   #2

  - No. No possibility whatsoever.  MADem   Aug-05-09 06:37 PM   #79
