I was under the impression her character was based more on Madeline Albright than Clinton's, at least from previous interviews. I don't know what parts of Warner you can compare to Clinton, as Lynn appears more like a Rottweiller in this series, and shows little of the charming qualities Gless likes to mention. I will allow the "tough as titanium" comment though.

Jeah, I posted that ad from Entertainment weekly over on the Zone..
That's the US cover for the DVD, and I think it's a terrible
pic, but oh well, what can you do? Although, the cover for the UK DVD
is pretty good...LOL I complained to Amazon that the pic on the DVD sucked, they probably think Im nutz...LOL.
Choco martinis...sounds interesting...

Not quite as good as the Park City Chocolate Martini - but close!! The Pom Martini was actually better I'd say (shhhlurp!!!) In fact I think I liked them a little too much!!

Funny you should mention....I just heard a while ago that somebody was complaining that the silhouetted figure of the Minnesota Midget was rudely suggestive.

GOOD GOD!! AN ELECTRIC GUITAR, BEING PERCEIVED AS A PHALLIC DEVICE??? UNIMAGINABLE!!!!

Prats.



p.s. I thought you said you wished your panties were half so exciting... :shock:
