Maybe he heard there were a lot of French speaking people in New Brunswick and wanted to sound cool. Not that Bill Clinton needs to try to look cool, he's the original saxophone-playing, intern-violating pimp. Nothing cooler then that.
Dude isn't running for anything, what's he care? Politicians carefully never answer that question unless they're actually from that town or shamelessly pandering (there are some videos of Palin giving the exact same speech about loving local sports teams all over the country)... when they're running for something. Clinton isn't, thus he may not be lying
I am baffled that Obama doesn't get more grief for all the photos of him in a White Sox cap though. What do Cubs fans think?
