"We don't sit around all the time talking about this. We swim in the late afternoon every day. And if either one of us even mentions a political topic we will stop the other one and just talk about the weather or whatever ... We talk about political topics, not only in the sense that we obviously discussed this horrible shooting in Kenya and what happened at the Navy Yard and the Syrian difficulties and all of that, but we don’t talk about ‘politics’ politics as much as people think.” – Bill Clinton explains that if he and Hillary are on your fantasy dinner guest list, you should be prepared to talk about the weather.
