President Clinton--TAKE THE OFFER!

I never personally met Chelsea Clinton--she was a star that circled quite outside my direct orbit when she was at Oxford. But I do remember the scene she caused when shortly after September 11th a group of idiots started an anti-war rally in Oxford--and Chelsea showed up with her Secret Service agents to heckle the opponents of the war in Afghanistan. Rumor had it that she had signed up for the CS Lewis Society, but she doesn't seem to have actually dropped by any meetings. But my red-meat Republican friends who met her all seemed to think that she was cool...despite the misfortune of her birth...

Now it turns out that a love-struck African official has offered President Clinton 40 goats and 20 cows for Chelsea's hand in marriage. Which is apparently a very generous offer by African standards.

Personally, my suggestion is that the President should accept the offer...he's sure not going to get that much from any American suitor.

UPDATE: Puzzled to hear that at least one of my readers thought the last sentence was a slap at Chelsea--nothing of the kind...just a wry comment on some American men...
