Being Bill & Hill Doesn't Blow

4/4/2008 5:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bill and Hill could have been just another couple of retired Prez old farts, figuring out how they would pay their $2 million legal bill for that ... Monica thing.

Turns out, a little scandal pays off in the, er, end. Thanks in part to books about their lives, Billary just reported $109 million in income over the last seven years.

That's a whole lotta cigars and blue dresses, folks.

OC Get A Life    

gracelee 1953, I am as morally and intellectually outrages as you are at Senator Obama's association with Wright a decorated Marine who has spent his life in altruistic Christian service to white, black, hispanic, and asian Americans in the inner city.

I demand an immediate investigation as to why for only the last 6 weeks have every major network FOX, CNN, ABC, CBC, NBC, MSNC, carried daily snippets of Wrights sermons without the whole text so nobody can actually get the entire context of his non-racist or pro-American attitude. Furthermore, the fact that only 95% of the internet has the same snipet videos without context placed along side racist and bigoted comments is just not enough, I demand 100%.

And, to follow your outrage, moral as well as intellectual, we should ask the same American media to provide the same coverage of the racist, bigoted, mysognist, and hate filled sermons of Rod Parsley, Bob Jones Sr., Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Billy Graham, William Graham, and others that have supported Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton, Bush II, Senator Clinton, and Senator McCain.

Ofcourse there is something different about those religious leaders and Wright, and those politicians and Senator Obama, but I cannot quite put my finger on it, can you?

Hillary Rodham Clinton, born in 1947, Democratic member of the United States Senate from New York (2001- ), wife of United States president Bill Clinton (1993-2001), and candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination for the 2008 presidential race. During her husband’s presidency, she became a powerful symbol of the changing role and status of women in American society. Her election to the U.S. Senate while being first lady was unprecedented in U.S. history. In announcing her candidacy for the presidency, Clinton was widely seen as the first female candidate with a strong prospect of winning her party’s nomination.

II Early Years

Print this section
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Hillary Rodham was the first student ever asked to give the commencement address at Wellesley College, where she earned her bachelor's degree in 1969. At Yale Law School, she met her future husband, Bill Clinton, and her lifelong mentor, Marian Wright Edelman; Edelman founded the Children's Defense Fund, an organization that lobbies for children's welfare. Rodham worked there as a staff attorney for a year after graduating from law school in 1973 and later chaired the organization's board.

In 1974, after working for the special U.S. House panel investigating a possible impeachment of President Richard Nixon, she moved to Arkansas, where she began teaching law at the University of Arkansas. She and Bill Clinton were married a year later. A daughter, Chelsea, was born in 1980.

In 1977 Clinton founded Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families and joined the Rose Law Firm, where she practiced until 1992, specializing in patent infringement and intellectual property. She was twice named one of the 100 most influential lawyers in America by the National Law Journal.

III First Lady

Print this section
In 1993 Bill Clinton took office as the 42nd president of the United States, and Hillary Clinton became first lady. As the first presidential spouse with her own successful professional career, Clinton drew criticism from those who favored a more traditional role for the first lady. After taking office, President Clinton chose her to head a special commission on health-care reform, the most significant public policy initiative of his first year in office.

The special commission developed a comprehensive health-care proposal, which was presented to the Congress of the United States in September 1993. Although Clinton was praised for her intricate knowledge of the issue, critics attacked the cost of the plan and the burden it placed on small employers. Throughout 1994 other groups drafted proposals, but Congress could not reach agreement on the health-care issue. The failure of health-care reform resulted in a major defeat for the Clintons and caused the first lady to step back from a prominent role in public policy decisions.

In 1993 both Clintons came under scrutiny during an investigation that questioned the couple’s 1978 investment in a failed real estate venture called the Whitewater Development Corporation and their connection to a bankrupt savings and loan association. In 1996 Hillary Rodham Clinton was called to testify before a grand jury investigating the Whitewater Affair, as these financial dealings came to be known. It was the first time a first lady was asked to appear before a grand jury.

Clinton traveled extensively as first lady and promoted new responsibilities and opportunities for women, particularly in the world’s developing countries. In 1995 she attended the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, China. In addition to helping her husband in his 1996 presidential election campaign, Clinton also worked actively for children’s welfare issues. In 1996 she published a book, It Takes a Village, that focuses on the responsibilities that society has toward children.

IV United States Senator

In 2000 Clinton made her own bid for political office when she announced her candidacy for a seat in the U.S. Senate from New York. In January 2000 she moved from the White House to a new home in Chappaqua, New York, to establish residency in the state. In the 2000 election, Clinton defeated Republican Rick Lazio. She took office in January 2001.

In the Senate, Clinton focused her attention on issues such as improving education, protecting the environment, and strengthening homeland security. She also became known for her detai

Thank you Churches, I salute you... that's what i'm talkin' about. Anyone with any type of "intellect" or "common sense" would wonder the same thing. If you're gonna tell it, tell it all. But media mongers who have to be fed can only take a few words in at a time so to avoid a brain bust... they use the motto:

"MY MIND IS MADE UP, DONT CONFUSE ME WITH ALL THE FACTS" And the American media knows this.

How does that make Obama racist? I know plenty of people who are admittedly racist, and it does not change my views of whatever "group" they don't particularly like of, nor does it make me not like or love them anymore or less. After all, Obama still loved his racist granny and athiest mama who just HAPPENED to love black muslim men

LOVE IS LOVE and HATE IS HATE and neither has a color.

While we sit here, we go in debt 1 million dollars more per minute. When Bill Clinton left the white house, this country was debt free for the first time in decades! That just go's to show you that they know finances, thiers and the country's. And for the idiot that had the audacity to say that Hillary is a bad role model for abused women.....you are an idiot and do not know what the h#ll you are talking about! Hillary Clinton has done more for women and children than any other politician. I am sick of hearing about lewinsky. Its not your buisness people. The man should have never been made to answer a question like that, his wife should not of had to have to endure that embarrassment and the people that were so elated to see the president and first lady humiliated are the people that have done much worse than them! We need a PRESIDENT. Not a war monger, not a smooth talker that can't stop listening to and amening hatred or even quit puffing on tobacco. If Hillary doesn't win, this country loses!
