There was a very funny Doonesbury cartoon a few months ago. You see the voices of Gore and Clinton coming out of the White House. And Clinton is saying "The problem Al, if that if people have a choice between the class clown and the class brain, they'll choose the class clown." And Al says "But you're even smarter than I am!!" And Clinton replies "Yeah, but have you ever noticed that sometimes I do things that are really stupid? There's a reason."
