    John Kerry meets with the Queen of England. He asks her,
    "Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are
    there any tips you can give to me for when I become President ?"

    "Well," says the Queen, "the most important thing is to surround
    yourself with intelligent people."

    Kerry frowns. "But how do I know the people around me are really
    intelligent?"

    The Queen takes a sip of tea. "Oh, that's easy. You just ask them
    to answer an intelligence riddle."

    The Queen pushes a button on her intercom. "Please send Tony
    Blair in here, would you?"

    Tony Blair walks into the room. "Yes, my Queen?"

    The Queen smiles. "Answer me this, please, Tony. Your mother and
    father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?"

    Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answers, "That would be
    me."

    "Yes! Very good," says the Queen.

    Back home Kerry asks to speak with Howard Dean.

    Howard, answer this for me. Your mother and your father
    have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?"

    "I'm not sure," says the former governor. "Let me get back to you
    on that one."

    Dean goes to his advisors and asks every one, but none
    can give him an answer. Finally, he ends up in the men's room and recognizes Bill Clinton's shoes in the next stall.

    Howard shouts, "Hey Bill ! Can you answer this for me? Your mother and father have a child and it's not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"

    Clinton yells back, "That's easy. It's me!"

    Dean smiles. "Thanks!"

    Dean goes back to Kerry and says "Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It's Bill Clinton.

    Kerry gets up, stomps over to Dean, and angrily yells into
    his face, "No, you idiot! It's Tony Blair!"

    But it's an old joke, that was told about GW Bush first, some two years ago...
