Wax On

A new figure was unveiled in Madame Tussaud’s wax museum in Manhattan — a life-size dummy of Mrs. Clinton.  

It was introduced amidst a political event-type balloon drop, flags, “Hail to the Chief” and pseudo-campaign volunteers (mostly employees of the museum) waving “Hillary 2008” signs. Hillary is portrayed as waving and smiling in her ubiquitous pantsuit, and is located next to other politicos, including her husband and President Bush.  

Her display includes an interactive kiosk which asks visitors questions like “Would you ever vote for a female president?” and “Will Hillary Clinton be the first female president?”  During the ceremony, the results ran 71% to 29% in favor of the former, and 55% to 45% yes on the latter.  

Hillary was invited to attend the event, but had meetings scheduled in Washington and was unable to make it.  

The question is, when Bill comes to visit the museum, will he ignore the wax figure of his wife and instead visit hot wax chicks like Beyoncé, Marilyn Monroe and Teri Hatcher?  This is, after all, the man who once said of a 1,400-year old Incan mummy, “You know, if I were a single man, I might ask that mummy out. That’s a good-looking mummy!”
