Senator's word is now 'final,' says the ex-Prez


Sen. Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton

WASHINGTON - After being surprised by her husband's role in the Dubai ports deal, Sen. Hillary Clinton has insisted that Bill Clinton give her "final say" over what he says and does, well-placed sources said.
The former President agreed to give his wife a veto to avoid his habit of making controversial headlines that could hurt her chances of returning to the White House, multiple sources told the Daily News.

"He knows it's Hillary's time now," said an adviser close to both Clintons who expects to play a key role in her likely 2008 presidential campaign.

Hillary Clinton's handlers are keeping a close rein on the former President's schedule to try to prevent another embarrassing screwup like their competing roles in the Dubai ports deal.

While she was blasting the Bush administration for allowing Dubai to run six of the country's ports, he was advising Dubai on how to sell the deal.

"Hillary has final say," said the adviser, and the ex-President's staff has been warned not to do or say anything without running it by the senator's handlers.

"That was true in the White House during the [2000] Senate campaign," recalled another longtime aide who stayed close to the ex-President after he left office. "If he said the sky was blue and she said the sky was purple, then the sky was purple."

Hillary Clinton's aides denied that her husband's comments have been a liability but concede she is calling the shots.


This is just a taste of one possible future that awaits us. Keep your powder dry.

It's like a bad feminist play. The dynamic female has a former president groveling at her feet.

There's a time for love and a time for living. You take a chance and face the wind.
An open road and a road that's hidden a brand new life around the bend.

There were times when I lost a dream or two.
Found the trail, and at the end was you.

There's a path you take and a path not taken the choice is up to you my friend.
Nights are long but you might awaken
To a brand new life, brand new life, brand new life around the bend.
