What will Bill do?

Good morning, Netizens...

Hoo boy! In this morning's David Horsey cartoon, I think he has posed the question that nearly everyone is asking. Once Hillary is sworn in as Secretary of State, what will Bill do with his time?

So, without dedicating more time to Bill Clinton than circumstances dictate, here are some ideas off the top of my head:

1. He could go to one of the Third-World countries as a personal emissary of his wife to combat the continuing growth of AIDS/HIV, Malaria and other horrific diseases striking many of these undeveloped/emerging countries. Even public awareness and acknowledgment of how many people are dying on a daily basis might make a difference.

2. As the courageous folks at Spokane Center for Justice have aptly demonstrated there is a crying need for justice for those least-able to pay for good legal counsel. Bill is a world-class lawyer, right? Why not have him work for the poor and underprivileged to develop a nation-wide program of low-cost legal centers for everyone, not just the privileged few?

He has an opportunity that few of us will ever attain in our humble lives, to serve with great dignity and acumen for people of all races, all walks in life, who desperately need help. With the economy already in the tank, full-blown recession coming on like a storm trooper in gum boots, a lot of little people are going to need all the help they can get just keeping their heads above water.

Now the question seems to me to be, will Bill serve?

Of course, as always, I would love to hear other opinions regarding Bill's future employment possibilities.
