Sarah Palin: America's favorite Bubbess...

By Robert L. Haught

Bob HaughtIt's no secret that Bill Clinton likes women. But a prominent Republican?

And not just any Republican but one who is seeking to deny the Democrats a chance to reclaim the White House that Clinton reluctantly vacated eight years ago.

Yet here is the former president, a prominent Democrat, describing Sarah Palin, the GOP nominee for vice president, as "hot" and saying her husband is "my kind of guy."

In an interview with CNBC last week Clinton called the Alaska governor an "effective candidate" and he told reporters in New York last Monday he can understand her appeal to voters, especially those in the heartland.

"I come from Arkansas," he said. "I get why she's hot out there, why she's doing well.

"People look at her, and they say, `All those kids. Something that happens in everybody's family. I'm glad she loves her daughter and she's not ashamed of her. Glad that girl's going around with her boy friend. Glad they're going to get married.

"I like that little Down syndrome kid. One of them lives down the street. They're wonderful children. They're wonderful people.

"And I like the idea that this guy does those long distance races. Stayed in the race for 500 miles with a broken arm. My kind of guy."

Clinton was referring to Alaska's "First Dude" Todd Palin, who is a four-time winner of the 2,000-mile Iron Dog snowmobile race.

With these remarks, it was almost as if Clinton the most famous "Bubba" in American political history -- were describing himself.

He stopped short of endorsing Palin as John McCain's running mate. But he might have given her a new title: "America's Favorite Bubbess."
