Good Times With Bill Clinton



Equal time. Even for a blog.

In light of last week's post about Ronald Reagan, we thought it only fair to give a blue state representative some shared time in the spotlight...

Seeing Bill Clinton in the news a lot this past week (either campaigning for the Nobel -- or his wife -- I'm not sure which), reminds me of a good story:

Over six years ago, yours truly was invited to the White House to help produce a documentary that would some day be played at the Bill Clinton Presidential library. We had a couple of days of nearly unlimited access to the famous residence and its main occupants. It was the final two weeks of his presidency (who would have guessed that while we were toiling on the the next lighting set-up, the big guy from Arkansas was busy signing a stack of Presidential pardons?!?). It was an incredible two days for an admitted history buff.

I digress.

At the end of our shoot, the President posed for a big group shot in front of the famous JFK - HMS Resolute desk, and then turned to leave the Oval Office. As he was saying the last of his "thank-you's" to the assembled crew, he turned and bumped straight into my chest. The White House photographer caught the moment, and snapped a shot of us both sharing a laugh.

Great for me (I've got one hell of a souvenir), not so good for Bill...

It was pretty clear that the group shot was a substitute for one-on-ones (hey, he had a lot on his plate in those days). Now that I had my own solo grip-n-grin, everyone wanted the same. A small line formed, and the busy President took the time to take a shot with everyone in attendance.

Including a VERY attractive female producer.

As she sidled-up next to the Prez, she shook-out her long locks, and turned her 'best side' to the camera's lens.

Clinton looked down at the hottie, and said in his charming southern drawl, "Yeahhh... you gotta get that good side out, darl'in, but from what I can tell, there's no such thing as a bad one on youuuuu!"

Wow. It NEVER stops.

There was a sudden, shared, electrical surge in the room. Sly looks flew between the crew. We all seemed to have the same thought: despite all he had gone through, Big Bill couldn't ever turn the flirt knob down to 1 or 2. It was always up to 11.

Someone, please, hide the cigars.

An innocent joke, magnified (distorted?) because of the locale. I can safely say that the lovely producer was in no way offended. Just the opposite.

And, yes. Bill was right: she has no 'bad side.'

MORE: Clinton strengthens his Hollywood ties this Friday (4/21) with a $1,000 a plate fundraiser dinner (for Hillary's re-election campaign) at Ron Burkle's Green Acre's estate.

well, you have a great story and photo from that. Not everyone gets to cover a project at the WH. His lines to the lovely lady producer sound... almost made up! But I'll take your word for it. Geez. From a Rhodes scholar.
