Bill Clinton still has juice: Two American Journalists freed from North Korea

Maybe we are getting closer to the Equire age if this dude is on the cover...

Maybe we are getting closer to the Esquire age if this dude is on the cover...This must be his I am about to get shit done suit and tie combo...

They call him the big dog, but I thought that was in reference to all the skirts this dude chased in office.  Now, on the serious note, this is how you throw around presidential clout.  See how he did it after the jump…

You can see Clinton is thinking, Get me the hell outta here...

North Korea: 2 U.S. journalists pardoned

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – North Korean media say leader Kim Jong Il has pardoned two American journalists and ordered their release during the visit of former U.S. President Bill Clinton.

What could he have said to get it done?  Whatever his words, the journalists are just happy to be on the way home…

He had to be able to outmanuver this dude...I mean come on, which chicks are throwing the panties his way to beat it up?  jason, I mean Kim Jong Il looks broke down after a hard day in the nuclear plant.

He had to be able to outmaneuver this dude...I mean come on, which chicks are throwing the panties his way to beat it up? Jason, I mean Kim Jong Il looks broke down after a hard day in the nuclear plant. He is thinking "Damn, I can't believe I let him get the best of me again..."

The Guardian points out that they share some similarities…So, this is really one or two degrees of separation…

Watchers of one of the most grudging rivalries in geopolitics were treated to a long-awaited face-off today as former US president Bill Clinton pressed North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il to release two jailed US journalists. Although both are well out of fighting shape, the match offers plenty of intrigue. While one is over 6ft tall and craves public contact, the diminutive Kim shies from the public eye.

But the two men have much in common. Both have an enormous fan base. Journalist Bradley Martin, author of Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader, writes that North Koreans are prone to shed tears at the sight of their Dear Leader. Although his reputation took a drubbing during Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, Clinton remains extremely popular across the world.

Both favour the night hours. Kim is said to hold late-night drinking parties after which inebriated meanderings become state policy, while in the 1990s the Big Dog would stalk the White House in the wee hours looking for a game of cards or a policy debate.

And both leaders have a history of, shall we say, recruiting young women from the palace retinue. North Korean defectors describe a comely special volunteer corps, while Clinton is unlikely to ever to shake off the scandal of his affair with Monica Lewinsky, a 22-year old White House intern.

So, one little bitty pimp to another regular sized pimp were able to handle this without having to go back to the car for their gun…Diplomacy at work…
