    ROFL!

    NAIROBI (AFP) - Former US president Bill Clinton, who was visiting Kenya, will probably never hear about it but he's being offered 20 head of cattle and 40 goats for the hand of his daughter in marriage.

    The 36-year-old bachelor, Godwin Kipkemoi Chepkurgor, has waited five years after writing to the president and vows to remain unmarried until he gets an answer.

    "I am ready to wait for as long as I can," said Cheprkurgor, who is a municipal councillor in Kenya's Rift Valler town of Nakuru.

    Chepkurgor's initial efforts to reach Clinton during his visit to Uganda in 2000 were thwarted by the Kenyan foreign ministry and the state security which failed to deliver his introduction letter.

    The electrical engineering graduate promised in the letter to pay his would-be father-in-law 20 head of cattle and 40 goats in dowry in accordance with African traditions.

    "I learnt a lot about the Clintons through the media and was impressed about their staunch Christian values and their down-to-earth attitude," he told AFP.

    "If I was given the opportunity at some stage to tell him about my love for his daughter. She was my first real love and she still is today."

    Chepkurgor is quick to brush off suggestions that he is a joker.

    "My parents were ready to support me because they realised how serious I was about this marriage," he said.

    If, however, he does not meet Clinton who winds up his Kenya trip on Saturday, Chepkurgor would accept the possibility that life must go on without Chelsea.

    I hear that Bubba (as well as the people here in Upstate New York ) told the guy he can keep the livestock and asked him if he'd be interested in taking Hillary instead

    Oh my goodness..... that man needs serious psychiatric help!!!!!!!

    He actually WANTS Her Royal Hillary-ness as a Mother In Law?

    Famine, drought, civil war, disease...... now Hillary as a relative!!!!!! Doesn't Africa have enough problems as it is?

    P.S. Now if he really wanted to get the Clintons' ear, all this guy had to say was "One million dollar campaign donation" and Chelsea would be on her way!!!!!
