CITIZEN BILL….TalkLeft reports that Bill

CITIZEN BILL….TalkLeft reports that Bill Clinton has been called for jury duty and is ready to serve. But the judge is “inclined to excuse him due to the publicity and effect of the constant presence of secret service.”

I don’t know about that. As I recall, the Supreme Court ruled that Paula Jones’ civil suit against Clinton could proceed because, you know, it didn’t really seem like it would cause very much trouble ? surely one of the worst pieces of prognostication in judicial history. So if suing a sitting president can be done in an orderly way, surely having an ex-president on a jury should be OK too. Right?

But, really, I don’t really care about that. I just think it would be loads of fun and I’d like to see it happen. Do you think he’d get chosen as jury foreman?
