Power Couple’s Power Lunch

ABC News’ Sunlen Miller Reports: Want to dine with the Clintons?  You’ll have to cough up a campaign contribution.

The Clinton campaign will select one supporter – and their guest – to have lunch with the former first couple.  The campaign will choose among those who make a contribution by midnight Friday, September 7th.

Wait.  Suddenly the Radar is experiencing deja vu.

Soliciting contributions, Bill Clinton sent around an email to supporters Thursday with the curiosity perking subject line "Mind If I Drop In?"

Inside, the former president confesses, "There’s no one smarter, no one better informed, and no one whose conversation I enjoy more.  So if you have the chance to sit down and talk with Hillary – like you do right now – you don’t want to miss it.  That’s why I’m going to join the two of you."

The invitation does not, however, specify whether the former President hoping to become the nation’s first gentleman will have anything to do with the actual construction of the meal.

But he will certainly take the opportunity to gush over his wife, concluding the note, "Thirty –six years ago, Hillary and I started a conversation, and it hasn’t stopped since.  I hope you’ll join our conversation for a day."

Now that’s a power lunch.
