Hillary was right


As I post this, I'm watching Bill Clinton on The Daily Show and, as always, the Big Dog has me enthralled.  I'm paying attention to his hands and they are very expressive. I'm reminded of what The Missus wrote in her memoir, Living History:


One of the first thing I noticed about Bill Clinton was the shape of this hands. The joints are thin and elegant, the fingers long and refined, just like a pianist's or a surgeon's. When we met at law school, I liked to watch him turn the pages. Now his hands bear the marks of years; he shook hands with thousands of people, played golf and made kilometers of signatures.

  1. I used one of his less-memorable speeches with my class to demonstrate how even the most mundane topics can be elevated by a great speaker.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
