Bucks For Bubba

The Big He raffles himself off to raise the readies to pay off SWMNBN's bills.

There are many ways to pay off campaign debts — cajoling phone calls, begging letters — but Bill Clinton believes that he has come up with a better method to wipe out the financial obligations outstanding from his wife’s failed presidential bid.

He is raffling himself. In an e-mail sent to millions of people who supported Hillary Clinton’s White House campaign, the former President asks: “How would you like the chance to come up to New York and spend the day with me?” For those who would like the One-Day-With-Bill prize, an online donation of as little as $5 (£3) will buy them the chance.

You may insert your own "booby prize" joke here.

You know, depending on what Bill might be doing the day the winner gets to tag along it might be worth buying a $5 chance. (Wink wink...)

Wasn't there a time when former Presidents conducted themselves with a bit of dignity? I'm trying to remember.

Is 2nd prize 2 days with Bill?

I think the last former president with dignity was Herbert Hoover.

Bill Clinton has become all id. And that is why a $5 chance to spend a day with Bill might just be worth it.

How much do we have to pay to make him go away?
