    Shortly after President Bush took office, an old man approached the
    White House from the park across Pennsylvania Ave where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the U. S. Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet with President Clinton." The Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr.Clinton is no longer
    president and no longer resides here. " The old man said, "Okay,"
    and walked away. The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Clinton." The Marine again told the man, "Sir, Mr. Clinton is no longer president and no longer resides here. "The man thanked him and, again, just walked away. The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same U. S. Marine, saying "I would like to go in and meet with President Clinton."The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at
    the man and said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Clinton; I've told you already that Mr. Clinton is no longer the president and no longer resides here. Don't you understand?" The old man looked at the Marine and said, "Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it.
    The Marine snapped to attention, saluted and said, "See you
    tomorrow, Sir!"

    I didn't know whether to laugh or cry .... Can anyone out there imagine where we'd be with Bubba's right hand guy (AlGore) running the show right now? Not a laughing matter.
