One can only hope that Clinton's attorneys ripost with an equal and
equally appropriate allusion from Measure for Measure.

Speaking of appropriate--

The constutional guardian I
Of pretty young wards in Chancery
All very agreeable girls, and none
Is over the age of twenty-one. . .

. . . There's one for him and one for he [MA:  probably Clinton and
Hyde?]

And one for you and one for ye
And one for thou and one for thee
But never o never a one for me
which is exasperating for
A highly susceptible Chancellor . . .

Savoyardically yours,

Can we please keep Clinton off the list? It's not as if we won't be
hearing this argument every day for the next few months. Maybe I'm just
narrow-minded, but assertions of Hilary's likeness to the Lady do not
seem sufficiently relevant to the list topic to justify inclusion.
