Vegans That Rock!
While I’m the last person to call a saxophone “rock,” I’ll cut this Arkansas boy some slack. As President, he was likable and flawed like the rest of us. We may never know if he actually smoked a “doob” with Willie Nelson on the roof of the White House but c’mon, the guy rocks.
Every once in awhile the vegans of the world get a warm fuzzy delivery when a celebrity like Alec Baldwin or Russell Brand proclaims themselves as vegan. When Bill Clinton made his announcement, the warm fuzzies arrived in several trucks. I mean…this is a former President, Commander in Chief, most powerful and known person in the world and he has chosen to become vegan.
When Bill Clinton spoke at the Democratic National Convention this week, twitter “was flippin out” with thousands of comments like, “Wow, Clinton looks fantastic.”
Sarma Melngailis, owner of Pure Food and Wine Restaurant tweets:
“BILL LOOKS GOOOOOOOOOOD. maybe b/c he went #vegan? hmmm? maybe? #DNC2012…BILL!!!!!!!!!! my all time favorite restaurant guest of all time ever ever. We call his table “the Bill Clinton table””
You know classic Bill took the vegan message to the media giants. In that friendly, non-judgmental, matter-of-fact, Clinton tone he explained to CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta,
“It’s turning a ship around before it hits the iceberg…I was lucky I did not die of a heart attack…my vegan regimen is helping to reverse the damage to my heart and blood vessels caused by cardiovascular disease”
Welcome to the club Bill. Congratulations on becoming PETA’s Man of the Year, losing weight and looking so fabulous. You’ve done a lot of good in your lifetime and you keep on, keepin’ on. We’re glad to have you around even longer. Enjoy your future Grandkids and sharing recipes with Chelsea. Keep rockin’ that sax and marching to your new vegan drum. You’re an inspiration, a humanitarian, a practical guy, a purveyor intelligent thought, a mathematician and truly a Vegan That Rocks!”
