    News paper article.

    KENOSHA, Wis. -- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton revealed something about herself Saturday that she acknowledged might surprise many people: she knows how to hunt.

    Campaigning ahead of Tuesday's Democratic nominating vote in Wisconsin, a state with a strong tradition of hunting and where many voters strongly support gun ownership rights, Clinton said she firmly backed the right to bear arms.

    "You know, you may not believe it but I've actually gone hunting," Clinton, 60, said at a question-and-answer session with voters at a crammed bratwurst restaurant in Kenosha.

    "My father taught me to shoot 100 years ago," she said jokingly.

    The topic came up when one voter asked Clinton what she would do to prevent incidents such as the shooting spree at Northern Illinois University Thursday in which a man entered a lecture hall and killed five students and himself.

    Officials later said the man had shown erratic behavior after he stopped taking medication.

    Clinton, a New York senator and former first lady, said steps should be taken to make sure those with criminal backgrounds or a history of mental illness did not get access to guns, though she did not offer specifics. But Clinton, who is hoping to put a stop to a streak of wins by rival Barack Obama, said she would not take any steps that would infringe on the rights of "lawful gun owners."

    "I think we've got to do two things simultaneously. We should be smart enough to figure this out -- protect the rights of lawful gun owners, whether it's hunting, collecting, target shooting, whatever the purpose is, it's a lawful right period," Clinton said. "But we've got to keep it out of the hands of criminals and terrorists and people who are mentally ill."

    Later, a reporter who had followed her career for 2 1/2 years and was not aware of her hunting experience pressed Clinton on whether she had ever shot anything.

    "Yes, Mike, I have," she told the reporter, Mike McAuliff of the New York Daily News. Clinton said she had shot a duck as well as "a lot of tin cans and a lot of targets and some skeet."

    They will say anything until after the election. Is there anyhone who ever witnessed her shooting, even when she was with her father?

    That's it! She's a skeet shooter!








    George and Laura Bush and Bill and Hillary Clinton are traveling by train to the Super Bowl. At the station George and Laura each buy a ticket and watch as Bill and Hillary buy just one ticket.

    "How are the two of you going to travel on only one ticket?" asks George W, astonished at what he is seeing. "Watch and learn," answers Hillary.


    They all board the train. George and Laura take their respective seats, but Bill and Hillary cram into a toilet together and close the door.
    Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the toilet door and says, "Ticket, please." The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes it and moves on.

    The Bushes see this happen! and agree it was quite a clever idea, so after the game they decide to try a similar plan on the return trip. When they get to the station they see the Clinton's at the window buying a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the Clinton's see that the Bushes don't buy any ticket at all.

    "Aren't you taking a terrible chance by traveling without a ticket?" says Hillary.

    "Live and learn," answers Laura Bush. When they board the train the Bushes cram themselves into a toilet and the Clinton's cram into another toilet just down the way.

    Shortly after the train leaves the station, George W. leaves their toilet and walks over to the Clinton'S toilet, knocks on their door and says, "Ticket, please."

    And Democrats are still wondering how they lost the election.

    Heard tell that Hillary did indeed try to take up shooting one time. However she had to quit because of a problem she had in target acquisition. She just couldn't hold her aim point still. She kept twitching off the target, from Bill to Monica and then back to Bill then back to Monica then back......... There is some question if that is when Vince walked in and stood between Bill and Monica ....
