WASHINGTON – Bill Clinton as secretary-general of the United Nations?

It has been talked about in U.N. circles and among the former president's insiders for more than two years.

And now, according to a United Press International report, Clinton "definitely wants to do it."

The term of Kofi Annan, the current U.N. secretary-general, ends in 2006, and, according to the report, Clinton's candidacy would receive overwhelming support from U.N. member states, particularly in the Third World.

"He definitely wants to do it," a Clinton insider is quoted as saying.

But Clinton faces an unusual predicament – and potential obstacle – in his quest: Can he get the support of the U.S. government to take on the assignment?

U.N. boosters think Clinton as secretary-general would bolster the prestige of the world body.

No American has ever been U.N. secretary-general even though the United States serves as host country and the major contributor to its budget.

"Critics of the U.N. complain that it's an organization without the muscle and will to put its decisions into effect," a U.N. source told UPI. "There's a good chance that Clinton could significantly change that situation, and then we'll see if the critics mean what they say."

This is not the first time Clinton's interest in the job has been raised.

Back in February of 2003 there were reports of a "major international move" to engineer Clinton into the post. Those reports suggested Clinton had already lined up support for his candidacy for the secretary-general position from Germany, France, England, Ireland, New Zealand, a handful of African states, Morocco and Egypt.

There were also suggestions that Annan might resign before the end of his term in 2006.

Annan took over as U.N. chief in 1997. On the record, he has said he intends to fill out his entire term.

Clinton's fund-raising prowess is viewed in some quarters as a real incentive for the U.N.
On top of all that, theres a lot of interns
he can hit on while he's there. Maybe he and
Kennedy can get together and rape and kill a few.
Boy would'nt that be great.
I'm all for it, Billy Bob does the UN.
Can't wait.

Your right. Koop should have said "stupid". "Pinhead" would be giving you too much credit.

Perhaps you can just give us all the shining benefits of your historical knowledge, so we can all have some more laughs.

Mary Jo Kopechne: (July 26, 1940 - July 18 1969)
Murdered by a drunken Teddy Kennedy
Rather than get help Mr. Kennedy
ran home and hid in the Kennedy compound
until he could sober up.

Mr. Kennedy is now a US Senator.
Good Liberal values.

Feel the love yet you scumbag

Conservative values:

Tom Delay, Congressional bribe bagman
Trent Lott, Racist criminal
Rush Limbaygh, Lying junkie
Bill O'reilly, Crank Phone Call Pervert
Mr X, Bush Admin traitor who outs CIA agents
Dick Cheney, Corporate Criminal working a Haliburton scam

I could care less about Kennedy. The voters of Massachusetts get to elect whoever they want. I suppose they could have elected some cokehead coward, but he already had a job as prez.
