Bill Clinton Updates Facebook Profile
'It's Complicated,' Says Former Prez
By ANDY BOROWITZ
The endgame of Hillary Clinton's bid for the Democratic presidential nomination took an unexpected turn today as her husband, former President Bill Clinton, updated his status on a popular social networking site.
Visitors to Mr. Clinton's profile page at Facebook noticed that minutes after Mrs. Clinton suspended her campaign, President Clinton updated his status from "Married" to "It's Complicated."
The former president also added several items under the category of "looking for" on his profile page.
Previously, Mr. Clinton had indicated that he was on Facebook primarily for "networking," but today he added "friendship," "dating," and "a relationship" to the list.
When asked what significance, if any, Mr. Clinton's profile updates had for his relationship with Mrs. Clinton, campaign spokesman Howard Wolfson offered an evasive response.
"What can I tell you?" he said. "It's complicated."
Elsewhere, in a kick-off to the 2008 general election campaign, John McCain challenged Barack Obama to a "Creepiest Smile" contest.
