Soon the time had come for President Bill Clinton to meet his maker. However, before giving up his spirit, the President was able to negotiate an additional 24 hours on earth. But before he knew it, the time had come. The President now stood before the gates of heaven seeking entry.
“Who is there?” inquired Saint Peter.
“Hey, brother! It’s me! Brother Bill Clinton former President of the United States!” responded the President.
“Why should you enter heaven?” asked Saint Peter, “You did quite a few bad things during your stint on earth!”
Clinton thought for a while then responded, “Not really! Because it really depends upon how you define IT. Yes, I smoked marijuana but you shouldn’t hold that against me because I never inhaled anything. Yeah, I wasn’t too truthful with the American people and Congress but I didn’t commit perjury. So that shouldn’t also be held against me either. And I never had sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky! Everybody on earth knows that! Sex is more than that! Right!”
Saint Peter took President Clinton’s testimony to Jesus. After several moments of deliberation with the Father and Holy Spirit, Jesus came forward and replied, “Okay, President William Jefferson Clinton here’s the deal. We’ll send you to someplace where it is really hot but we won’t call it ‘ Hell’. You’ll be there for an indefinite period of time but we won’t call it ‘eternity’. And lastly don’t abandon all hope when you enter IT whatever you want to define ‘IT’. Just don’t hold your breath waiting for ‘IT’ to freeze over! Enjoy ‘IT’ whatever ‘IT’ is! Right!”
