    Clark’s thoughts: I need to remember to kiss his butt so that I can use him after I switch political parties and run for President someday.

    Clinton’s thoughts: He’s kinda good lookin’ – I wonder if I’d get anywhere with him if he were female. Must stop looking at him or he’ll figure out what I’m thinking.

    Clinton – “Shut the f**k up.”

  29. Rodney Dill says:

    Clark – “Since you won’t be needing it anymore, may I please have the names in your little black book who haven’t been made public yet, if there are any?”
