Bill Clinton has certainly relaxed his PR defenses since leaving
office. One of our favorite results of this phenomenon is a small
chapter Clinton contributed to a recently published book entitled The
Games We Played, edited by Ogilvy PR's very own Steven Cohen, an SVP in
the Washington, DC office.
The Boy from Hope's somewhat desultory tale (he occasionally wanders off
the subject to wax philosophic about a BBQ joint called Stubby's)
recounts the games he would play with neighborhood friends when he was a
child. Most were an odd variation of stickball, adjusted to accommodate
the number of players on hand. However, he admits that some games they
invented were "not so nice."
"We would wait for the cars to go by and try and hit the hubcaps with
the acorns ... because it made the loudest, most delicious sound."
It's not quite draft dodging, but how come Ken Starr let this one go?
