An old man approached the White House from the park across Pennsylvania Ave. where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the U. S.
Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet with President Clinton."
The Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr. Clinton is no longer president and no longer resides here." The old man said, "Okay" and walked away.

The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Clinton." The Marine again told the man, "Sir, Mr. Clinton is no longer president and no longer resides here." The man thanked him and,
again, just walked away.

The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same U. S. Marine, saying "I would like to go in and meet with President Clinton." The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to
speak to Mr. Clinton. I've told you already that Mr. Clinton is no longer the president and no longer resides here. "Don't you understand?"

The old man looked at the Marine and said, "Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it." The Marine snapped to attention, saluted and said, "See you tomorrow."

Somebody better call the Clintons. They think they're still in charge.

captainpooby: Those idiots on Good Morning America up until a few years ago were still saying Pres Clinton, and then catching themselves and saying, "excuse me folks, that is ex-Pres. Clinton." Those are Freudian slips, but indicates that all those folks long for Bill C.

Actually (I Think...correct me if I am wrong) they hold the title of President for life... Or hold the title "Former president" Although the phrase "President Ronald Reagan" STILL gives me warm fuzzies.

DrFridge you are correct. I don't think there is anyone happier than I am that Bill Clinton is no longer The President, but he will always be President Clinton. That is something that just goes with ever having the job.

DrFrige & sum-rifle: I guess you folks are right, but I still think when we personally address a former USA president one-on-one in the first person, we say "Mr. President," but I think if we are talking about him, the commentator should say former or ex president...... Isn't the phrase Mister President.... reserved for a sitting president?
