Man Offers 40 Goats And 20 Cows For Chelsea Clinton's Hand In Marriage

From the Huffington Post:
A Kenyan man's offer of 40 goats and 20 cows for Chelsea Clinton's hand in marriage may still be on the table – and Hillary Rodham Clinton has promised to convey the "very kind offer" to her daughter.

To laughter at a town hall meeting Thursday in Kenya, CNN's Fareed Zakaria asked the U.S. Secretary of State if the Clintons had made a decision on the dowry offer. In 2000, a Kenyan man wrote to then-president Bill Clinton offering the animals in accordance with African tradition.

After a pause, Clinton said, "My daughter is her own person, very independent, so I will convey this very kind offer."
Take that Johnny Lingo! It's obvious what kind of wife Chelsea must be. (20 cows plus 40 goats!)

I wonder if he wrote a letter because he was too nervous to make the Phone Call.
