What's Wrong with Bill Clinton?

William Jefferson Clinton is the only Democratic president in the last forty years who has not received the Nobel Peace Prize. Even his vice president, Al Gore received the Nobel Peace Prize (for co-producing a movie on global warming, right before global cooling became a big concern). Bill is like the kid that didn't get picked for baseball and ended up watching through the fence.

How did he become the Democratic Party's biggest loser (in the opinion of the Nobel Committee)?

Did he fail the world in pursuit of peace or did he simply not lay down a large enough bribe?

  • He couldn't keep the snake caged?
  • Hillary screwed it up somehow?
  • He wasn't peaceful enough?
  • His books didn't catch on: "Giving-How Each of us can Change the World", My Life, My Life- The Presidential Years Vol. 2"

When you consider that Jimmy Carter, arguably the worst president in US History received the award and Barack Hussein Obama, who is poised to take the dunce cap from President Carter received the award, could it be that President Clinton was simply not lame enough as a US president? Or that his shrewish wife, the current US Secretary of State somehow offended Swedish sensibilities to the extent that he could no longer be considered for the honor of becoming a Nobel Laureate?


  1. Apparently, Dr. Nobel would have frowned on philanderers.

  2. If infidelity was an issue, I can't see how Arafat won the award. I met Chairman Yassir Arafat (full name: Mohammed Abdel Rahman Abdel Raouf Arafat al-Qudwa al-Husseini) and had lunch with him when we were both staying at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing. The food was so bad there that he invited me to lunch and I tagged along.

    I'm not a fan of his. I'm not a friend of his. I simply joined him for lunch around a decade ago.

    Arafat never confined himself to "one woman".

    And that's all I'll say on the subject.

  3. Poor poor Bill. I think it was the snake issue.
