And my contempt for Slick Willie is fading as he turns over a new leaf.
The former president, known for his love of burgers, barbecue and junk food, has gone from a meat lover to a vegan, the strictest form of a vegetarian diet. He says he eats fruits, vegetables and beans, but no red meat, chicken or dairy.
Clinton, 65, who had quadruple bypass surgery in 2004 and then stent surgery in 2010, is following this eating plan to improve his heart health.
He talked about his plant-based diet last year, saying he lost 24 pounds on it for his daughter Chelsea's wedding, and he chatted about it again recently on TV, drawing national attention to the potential health benefits of this type of diet.
I bet he just did it for the PETA Girls. I hope along with meat he's given up raping women like Juanita Broaddrick as well.
For those considering a plant-based diet -- and even more so for those not yet considering a plant-based diet! -- please watch Forks Over Knives, which is chock full of evidence that both meat and dairy are major contributors to both heart disease and cancer.
