    Condi Rice is going to be upset. NFL Commish is her dream job.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! :thumbdown

    He has not shown any qualifications for this job. I sincerely hope that they don't give him a job based upon a publicity stunt. Surely there are many more qualified applicants.

    I heard on the radio the other day that she actually withdrew her name from consideration for the Commisioners job. She is staying with Bush as long as he needs her.

    He is a politican and you need to be one when between the owners and the players. So I guess you would be qualified, but I still don't want him.

    It would not work for President Clinton I don't think.

    I would think the job requires a very busy schedule and time....I don't think he has either because he makes a mint doing speeches around the country and why would he want to actually work hard at something when he can pick and choose a speech here and there and still make millions?

    He's got Hillary to contend with. She's probably going to run for president and anything Bill touches that has power attached to it she wants a piece of...so if he were NFL commish she'd have to be equally NFL commish. They were co-presidents after all.

    His health. If he's just getting well now after all those heart issues why would he want to deal with the drama that is the NFL.

    He's so much better off just helping out President Bush with the hurricane relief thing they have going on and being Hillary's first man....uh lady...uh whatever they call men behind powerful political women.

    Seems as qualified as anyone with a resume that has a position on it that only 5 living men can speak to.

    That's funny, because that's exactly what Bill Clinton said. :)

    The suicide list would be long for owners and GM's not to count boyfriends and husbands of cheerleaders.

    He knows sports, he is pro-business and he loves the common guy. Seems like a great fit.

    I was never a big fan of Clinton but I have to admit he is a very smart man. If he isnt sure how to do somthing he will bring in a professional to help him with it. I think it would be kinda wierd having a expresident as the comish.

    I never did agree with the want to impeach Clinton for cheating on his wife. He cheated and lied, but that didn't get JFK in trouble. I was thinking, how about the Falcons' owner as commish? The way he made the Falcons' seats affordable made it possible for many ATL residents to watch the Falcons. If he instituted that policy for the whole NFL, maybe more people, including myself, will be able to watch their team in a stadium, not just on TV.

    Bill don't need no stinkin' interns! The NFL has cheerleaders!! :drool:

    Good point, man. What are the qualifications, anyway? idonno:

    Seriously, though, my concerns with Clinton is that he's never ran a business, much less a multi-billion dollar empire like the NFL. In addition, he might tend to be a populist commish who could make decisions based upon public perception, which could ruin a good thing. The public knows squat! This is all just speculation, of course.
