BARACK OBAMA:

Ma, I am a boy (Obama.) I am!

TONY BLAIR:

Red eel Blair - a malarial bleeder.

BILL CLINTON:

The apologetic Democrat says:
Not nil: Clinton

Slapdash, self-royal Clinton's not nil. Clay or flesh, sad pals?

Re: media coverage of his administration
So snide! Pork cuts are not nil. Clinton era stuck, roped in. SOS!

Stab! Mock! Cuts are not nil. Clinton era, stuck, combats.

Emil: "Slam it. Power bastion not nil, Clinton. No, it's a brew - optimal slime."

AL GORE:

Rush Limbaugh says:
Flog sad loser Al. Gore, zero, glares, old as golf.

Tipper replies: Rot! Aid Al Gore - hero, gladiator.

The press is undecided:
Red now, rotund Al Gore? Zero, glad nut, or wonder?

Rail, rotund Al Gore: hero, glad nut or liar?

But all agree his charisma is the key. Republican version:
Aide malarial from Al Gore: zero glamor, flair ala media.

Democratic version:
Aide malarial from Al Gore: hero glamor, flair ala media.

Politically incorrect version, from aide's point of view:
Nips delirial from Al Gore: zero glamor, flair. I led spin.

DONNA SHALALA:

The reader is left to imagine the context of this palindrome:
"Al! Al! " "Ah, Shalala!"
OR
"Al! Al! Ah." - Shalala

BOB DOLE

Liar emits a snaky Dole melody, Kansas time. Rail!

Senile few: era emits a snaky Dole melody, Kansas time. Are we felines?

Resold, Dole ire tame materiel. Odd loser!

Dole vs. Ted Kennedy:
Despot Bob tops Ed.

Derail sad Dole - crap parcel, odd as liar Ed.

JACK KEMP

When Bob Dole heard that the choice of Kemp infuriated Al Gore, a reporter heard him say:
Dam! Slap me, Kemp! Al’s mad!
