WE DRIVE DOWN TO THIS PLACECALLED CAFĂ© DELFINI,

THIS QUIET LITTLE ITALIAN PLACE,AND WHEN WE GET THERE

ALL THE VALET GUYSARE SECRET SERVICE AGENTS.

THE FIRST PERSONWE MEET AT THE DOOR IS

SPECIAL AGENT POGUE.I ASK AGENT POGUE IF

BILL AND HILLARY ARE HERE YET.AND HE TELLS ME,

"NO, THE PRESIDENTAND FIRST LADY ARE EN ROUTE."

AND THEN I HEAR ONE OF THEOTHER AGENTS WHISPER INTO THIS

WALKIE-TALKIE MIKE THINGON HIS WRIST,

- "DO WE HAVE AN ETA ON ELVIS?"- [LAUGHTER]

BILL CLINTON'S SECRET SERVICECODENAME IS "ELVIS."

I HAVE NO IDEAWHAT HILLARY'S SECRET SERVICECODENAME IS

AND I WONDER IFI'LL HAVE THE NERVE TO ASK HER.

THE CLINTON'S DON'T SHOW UPFOR ALMOST AN HOUR.

AND WHEN THEY FINALLY BREEZE IN,THEY LOOK LIKE MARY AND ME

WHEN WE'VE BEENHAVING A FIGHT IN THE CAR

AND HAVE TO PUT A PIN IN ITIN FRONT OF FRIENDS.

[LAUGHTER]

HILLARY ORDERS THE SAME MERLOTTHAT MARY IS DRINKING

AND BILL ORDERS A DIET COKE.

MARY PULLS OUTA COPY OF HILLARY'S BOOK"IT TAKES A VILLAGE"

AND ASKS HER TO AUTOGRAPH IT.HILLARY IS WON OVER IMMEDIATELY.

[LAUGHTER]

MARY HAD READ THE BOOKAND LOVED IT.

SHE'D WANTED ME TO READ IT, TOO,BUT SO FAR I HADN'T.

I'D MEANT TO,BUT YOU KNOW HOW THAT GOES.

[LAUGHTER]

I WAS NERVOUS ABOUTANY DISCUSSION INVOLVING A BOOK

I WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE READBUT HADN'T.

THIS WAS A FEAR I'D HADEVER SINCE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL.

[LAUGHTER]

MARY LOOKS AT HILLARYWHILE SHE'S SIGNING IT AND SAYS,

"IT'S SO TRUE,IT REALLY DOES TAKE A VILLAGE."

AND HILLARY SAYS,"IT DOES, DOESN'T IT?

[LAUGHTER]

BILL AND I JUSTLOOK AT EACH OTHER."

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

I'M TEMPTED TO MAKE A JOKEABOUT WRITING A BOOK CALLED

- "IT TAKES A NANNY"...- [LAUGHTER]

BUT I'M SMART ENOUGHTO REALIZE THATTHAT WOULD PROBABLY

PISS OFF BOTH HILLARY AND MARY.

BILL ASKS ME HOWSHERLOCK IS DOING

AND I ASK HIMHOW BUDDY IS DOING.AND HILLARY SAYS,

"THAT DOG KEEPSCHEWING UP MY SHOES."AND BILL SAYS,

"I KEEP FORGETTING TO GET HIMTHAT CAN OF TENNIS BALLS."

MARY SHOWS HILLARYPICTURES OF OUR KIDSAND HILLARY SHOWS US

CHELSEA'S GRADUATION PHOTOFROM STANFORD.

THE TWO OF THEM TALK ABOUTCHELSEA GOING TO OXFORD

AND WHERE OUR KIDSARE GOING TO PRESCHOOL.

AND THEN DURING ALULL IN THE CONVERSATION,

IN BETWEEN THE SALADAND THE MAIN COURSE,

MARY LOOKS AT HILLARY AND SAYS,

"SO, WHAT'S YOURSECRET SERVICE NAME?"

HILLARY BLUSHESAND LOOKS AT BILL.

AND BILL SAYS,"GO AHEAD, TELL THEM."

HILLARY LOOKS AT MARY AND SAYS,"EVERGREEN." AND MARY SAYS,

"OH, ARE THEYYOUR FAVORITE TREES?"

AND HILLARY SAYS,"YES. BUT DON'T GET ME WRONG,IT'S NOT THAT I DON'T LOVE

- "DECIDUOUS TREES AS WELL.- [LAUGHTER]

IT'S JUST THAT I FINDEVERGREENS TO BE SO ENDURING."

WHEN SHE SAYS THE WORD ENDURING,SHE GIVES BILL A LOOK

AND I WONDER IF WHATSHE REALLY MEANS IS
