"I admit it, I may be a little naughty -- but I'm certainly not bad."
"Look what a nice guy I am -- I'm so affectionate I even let my cat climb on my shoulders." [This pose reminds me of nothing so much as those Death Row inmates who pose with pets in order to seem "nice."]
"I wouldn't be using both fingers to point if I didn't really, really mean this very serious point. And the fact that I'm making it, by the way, shows what a very serious person I am."
"Even though I'm God's gift to this country, I still retain my humility -- isn't that amazing?"
"I love being the center of attention, especially with a bunch of fawning sycophants like yourselves."
"I think I evoke JFK, don't you? Look, we have the same haircut."
"Hey, you, what was your name again? Monica? Monica honey, come over here a sec, I got a favor to ask."
"Okay, so we happen to be on stage. Believe me, we're every bit this affectionate in private, too."
"I'm humbled to be in the presence of greatness.....my own, that is. Nelson should feel similarly honored."
Clinton is far more stage actor than movie actor: he is like a ham who is always emoting for the cheap seats. He looks good from a distance; up close, it's a bit much.
