Clinton goes hoarse rooting for Giants

By BETH FOUHY, Associated Press Writer Mon Feb 4

NEW YORK – That rough, husky tone to New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s voice didn’t come from the campaign trail.

“Every New Yorker has a sore throat after last night,” Clinton told talk-show host David Letterman during her appearance Monday on “The Late Show.” She said she had been rooting for the New York Giants while watching the Super Bowl in a Minneapolis sports bar.

Clinton said she was modeling her campaign for the Democratic nomination for president on the Giants’ last-minute, 17-14 victory over the undefeated New England Patriots.

“I took a lot of heart from that, Dave,” said Clinton, who is neck-and-neck in many polls with rival Barack Obama on the eve of the 22-state nomination contest. “The fourth quarter before Super Tuesday, you’ve got to keep going.”

Clinton and Letterman traded laughs on whether she drank a beer during the game — “I did not, only because I am so tired I thought I might still be there if I had” — to how she’d control her husband’s behavior as president — “In my White House, we’ll know who wears the pant suits.” …

Turning serious, Letterman asked whether all the money the presidential candidates are raising might be better spent feeding the poor and hungry. Clinton agreed that it wasn’t a good way to run campaigns.

“That’s why we should go to public financing,” she said.

Sure. And we believe her, too.

After all, she is just one of the guys. Everyone knows that.

“Turning serious”? That must have been the biggest joke of her entire performance.

The (aptly named) Ms. Fouhy must have no sense of humor.

By the way, just judging from the photo, it would appear that Hillary found one of those rare lesbian “sports bars.”

NTTAWWT.
