    On a trip to Great Britain while he was President of the United States ,

    Bill Clinton had a meeting with Queen Elizabeth.

    During that meeting, he asked her, "How does one manage to run a country

    so smoothly?"

    "That's easy," the Queen replied, "You surround yourself with intelligent

    ministers and advisors."

    "But how can I tell whether they are intelligent or not?", asked Bill.

    You ask them a riddle," she replied, and with that she pressed a button

    and said, "Would you please send Tony Blair in."

    When Blair arrived, the Queen Said, "I have a riddle for you to answer for

    me: Your parents had a child an d it was not your sister. It also was not

    your brother. Who was this child?"

    Blair replied, "That's easy. The child was me."

    "Very good," said the Queen. "You may go now."

    Sizing up his wife's chances in her presidential bid, and thinking back on

    that meeting, Bill Clinton spoke to Hillary. He said to her, "I have a

    Riddle for you, and the answer is very important. Your parents had a child,

    and it was not your sister, and it was not your brother. Who was that


    Hillary replied, "Yes, it is clearly very important that we determine the

    answer. Can I deliberate on this for awhile?"

    "Yes," said Bill, "I'll give you four hours to come up with the answer."

    So Hillary called a meeting of her campaign team, from top to bottom, and

    asked them the riddle. But after much discussion and many suggestions, none

    of them had a satisfactory answer. She was quite upset, not knowing what she

    would tell her husband, the former President. As Hillary was leaving her

    meeting she ran into her most formidable challenger to her Presidential

    Nomination, Barack Obama.

    So she said, "Mr. Obama, can you answer this riddle for me? Your parents

    had a child, and it was not your sister, and it was not your brother. Who

    was the child? "

    "That's seems pretty easy," said Obama, "I think the child would be me."

    "Oh thank you," said Hillary. "You may just have ensured my nomination for

    the democratic candidate for the Presidency of the United States !"

    So Hillary went back to Bill and said, "I think I know the answer to your

    riddle. The child was Barack Obama.!"

    "No, you dip!" shouted Bill. "The child was Tony Blair."
