Bill Clinton turns down White House policy job to fully embrace homemaking
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A week after moving into the White House, Bill Clinton has thrown himself into his new role as First Gentleman.
“When I got here, I was a little overwhelmed by all of the new work I would have to do. Just days ago, I had no idea how to fold a napkin, order flower arrangements, or even arrange a cheese board. But you live and learn,” the former president told Oprah in a televised East Wing interview.
Asked whether he would be taking on the hard-hitting issue of childhood obesity like his predecessor Michelle Obama, he responded that he might indeed campaign for veganism. Otherwise, he said he planned to "stick to flower arranging."
