A nascent narrative has developed that suggests Hillary Clinton wasn't really a co-president serving alongside her beloved husband, but in truth performed the more traditional First Lady roles of running pointless goodwill missions and publishing chocolate chip cookie recipes in Parade Magazine.

3) Can America forgive Hillary for jeopardizing the life of national treasure Sheryl Crow?
