In fact they thought so hard about it that the hijacked 3. I guess now instead of a chuckle from Clinton, we might get to see a good honest belly roll full fledged laugh-a-thon. I can also assume that it will take roughly three to four days for Obama to issue any type of statement, possibly longer.
