Sen. Hillary Clinton, Olympian?

ABC News reported She's a former first lady, a United States senator, and a potential 2008 presidential candidate. But to hear Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton tell it, all of that pales in comparison to her real childhood dreams. "I wanted desperately to be an Olympic athlete,... I tried everything. I ran every race, and if I was really lucky I finished second to last…I couldn't jump, I couldn't run, I couldn't swim."

Don't let that stop you. Maybe they will make lieing an Olympic event.
After determining she'd never be an athlete, she set her sights on becoming an astronaut.
I always thought she was spacy.
"So I wrote to NASA and said, 'How do I sign up to be an astronaut?"' she said. "And they wrote back very politely and said, 'We don't take girls."'

Next went the dream of a career in medicine. "I volunteered at the hospital but kept getting lightheaded and woozy when I saw anyone in any kind of distress," she said.
So much for a medical career.
She also abandoned hopes of becoming a scientist or mathematician because she didn't have the best grades in those subjects.
So you'll be a bad scientise or a bad mathematician.
That, she said, left her current career choice — one that was shaped at the family dinner table.
What's that? Being a cook???
