  I don't have any idea if there's anything to the below suggestion
regarding the possibilty of Clinton having a venereal disease.
  If I believed Clinton were an honest, honorable man I wouldn't give
it much credence, actually.
  However, since Clinton ostentatiously claims to be on "active duty"
as the Commander-in-Chief (God help us) when that claim's convenient,
shouldn't he be subject to AT LEAST the same (if not more severe)
military discipline that a VD-infected Buck Private would be? That is,
have the matter dealt with under the military justice system.
