1. I still don’t get the attraction to Clinton.

2. Why on Earth would anyone fry a steak?

    I’m a woman who never understood the appeal of Clinton either. He’s not that good looking. Add his character flaws and there is no attraction, at least not for me. Really, he gives me the shivers. (I was going to say “willies,” but … heh.)
