"Just what kind of girl do you think I am?"

Ahh, Bill (emphasis mine):
"Mr. Clinton was seated next to the Queen of Spain, on her right, and Mr. Oscar de la Renta was on her left. To the left of Mr. de la Renta was Ms. Cruz, and to the right of Mr. Clinton was Anna Wintour . . . The real highlight of the evening was watching the former president eventually forsake the editor of Vogue as a dinner partner and switch his seat with Mr. de la R so that he could be seated next to the movie star."
Oh, and that's not all for the lady from the enthusiastic statesman:
After being presented with a medallion from Queen Sofia, Clinton told the audience, "I was trying to figure out exactly why I would receive this award tonight. It may be because, even though I'm not of Spanish descent, I've seen every one of Penelope Cruz's movies - and I liked them all."


Slick, Willy!
