Waiting For Chelsea

According to a recent news report, a Kenyan man is still waiting to hear from Bill Clinton about a proposal the man had for Chelsea's hand in marriage. According to news account, "Godwin Kipkemoi Chepkurgor wrote Clinton asking for Chelsea's hand in 2000 when Clinton visited Kenya, Chepkurgor told the East African Standard newspaper. Chepkurgor, 36, vowed to remain single until he gets an answer to his proposal to marry Chelsea, 25."

In addition to asking for Chelsea's hand in marriage, Mr. Chepkurgor also offered praise for potential Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton: "Chepkurgor said his letter praised Clinton's leadership and commended his wife, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, for standing by her husband 'like an African woman' in the face of the Monica Lewinsky scandal." Few people know that Tammy Wynette's "Stand By Your Man" was actually a cover of a traditional Kikuyu folk song.

The man had been waiting for five years on a proposal. He deserves an answer for Christ's sake. He has offered 40 goats and 20 cows as a dowry. I think we all agree that this is a very -- perhaps overly (10 cows, maybe, but 20?!?) -- generous offer. Bill: call them man with your answer (not that you are asking my opinion, but like I said that is a good amount of livestock).
