Hillary Clinton is now up to 13,142 - up 254 since the article was
published.
http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=64
552165

George W. Bush on the other hand, depending on which instance of the George
W. Bush MySpace profile you choose has a range of 7 to 9,373 friends.

http://www.myspace.com/presidentgeorgewalkerbush = 7
http://www.myspace.com/60342164 = 19
http://www.myspace.com/presidentus = 235
http://www.myspace.com/geedubbush = 310
http://www.myspace.com/16949019 = 2,667
http://www.myspace.com/1091307 = 9,373

More importantly, as far as Osama goes his MySpace profile does have only 1
friend http://www.myspace.com/obl1 that one friend is...TOM.  Now that is
silly.

Couldn't help noticing in Oct 24 NY Times that 12,888 people have
"friended" Hillary Clinton.

My spies tell me that only 1 person has "friended" George W. Bush.
But that person, of course, is Osama Bin Ladin!

As George says, quality beats quantity.

And I am having a silly day.
