    Bill Clinton is offered 40 goats and 20 cows for his daughter

    Bill Clinton is offered 40 goats and 20 cows for his daughter

    By Meera Selva

    Published: 25 July 2005



    Bill Clinton, used to a warm reception on his global goodwill missions, came away from Kenya this weekend with more than he bargained for.

    The former US president must now consider whether the offer of 40 goats and 20 cows, made by an apparently lovestruck local official, is sufficient to persuade him to give up his daughter Chelsea for marriage.

    Godwin Kipkemoi Chepkurgor wrote to Mr Clinton through Kenya's Foreign Minister, and promised him he would look after his daughter in style.

    "Had I succeeded in wooing Chelsea, I would have had a grand wedding," promised the electrical engineering graduate. "I would have invited South African Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu to preside at the ceremony."

    The councillor gave the names of the former Kenyan president Daniel Arap-Moi and two of his college mates as character references. Mr Chepkurgor also said he had been impressed by Mr Clinton's wife, Hillary, for standing by her man through the Monica Lewinksy scandal "like an African woman".

    A Kenyan man traditionally has to pay a dowry in goats and cows to his bride's family and the offer that Mr Chepkurgor made for Chelsea is a generous one.

    I know Chelsea is looking better these days, but I'd rather have the goats and cows. This guy would be trading down.

    Is this the same Kenyan fellow who keeps sending me emails wanting me to help him get $10 million out of one of his foreign bank accounts?

    I've always thought Chelsey was a nice looking gal, much better then a goat or a cow

    Just remember that most girls usually wind up looking like their mothers. I think if she is anything like her mom, I would be running away.

    If Chelsea would fetch that much, I wonder what either - or both - of the Bush twins would get?

    I'd start at 2 million goats and a million cows, and the Beatle's White Album.


    Mmmmm, Jenna.

    If I was Bill, I'd tell the lovestruck Kenyan that if he would throw in a mule, he could have Hillary and Chelsea.

    One thing even the staunchest conservative Republicans would say about Bill is that he wouldn't have to resort to that.

    Nah, DanO's hoping to get Chelsea in a package with George Stephanapolis (sp?) for Adam Dunn. What DanO doesn't know is that Bill Clinton is secretly speaking for Jim Bowden and the Washington Nationals.
