Bill Clinton Has a Bit of a Wandering Eye

In the midst of a Times style-section profile of Trudie Styler today, we learn just a bit more about Bill Clinton, philanthropist.

Afterward, at a dinner and live auction at the Pierre Hotel, Bill Clinton, Ms. Styler’s guest of honor, mingled with Aretha Franklin and Tom Hanks, then ogled Jennifer Hudson, prying his eyes away just long enough to explain what had induced him to come. “Sting and Trudie and I have been friends for a long time,” Mr. Clinton said, stealing a glance at his hostess, whose clingy white Pucci gown showed the outline of her underwear. Oh, and yes, “I believe in their cause.”

Presumably he means the Rainforest Foundation, not tantric sex. Maybe.
