President Clinton was out jogging very early the other day, when he came upon the Washington Monument. He paused at the entrance, bowed his head respectfully, and said: "George, the country is in a terrible shape lately, and I'm not sure what to do to improve things. If you've got any advice for me, I would sure appreciate it."
Suddenly, the early morning mist cleared, a light shone down upon Bill, and a clear voice said: "Read the Constitution."
Bill thought a moment, then said: "I've read the Constitution, and I don't believe there's anything in there to help me right now." and he jogged on.
The next morning, Bill took a different route for his early morning jog and found himself in front of the Jefferson Memorial. Again, he bowed his head respectfully and said: "Thomas, the country is in terrible shape right now and I sure could use some help getting it straightened out. Is there anything you can think of to help me?"
Again, the mist parted and a light shone down upon the president as a voice called out: "Read the Bill of Rights."
Bill thought a moment and said: "I've read the Bill of Rights, and I don't believe there's anything in there to help me right now." and he jogged on.
On the third morning, Clinton found himself in front of the Lincoln Memorial. For a third time, he bowed his head and said: "Mr. Lincoln, you were an inspiration to me. The country is in terrible shape right now and I was hoping you might have some words of wisdom to help me make things right.
Again, the mist cleared, a light shone down upon Bill, and a booming voice said: "Take your family to the theater."
