If Bill Clinton Were an Evil Tyrant, He'd Be Senator Aldridge!

I must admit, I am not that political a person, but I have paid attention this year because I know this is one of the most important elections in US history. To make a fair judgment call, I've watched both the RNC and DNC coverage. All I can say is, wow, I was blown away by Bill Clinton's speech at the DNC. Regardless of your chosen party, whether you love him or hate him, Slick Willy can deliver a speech. He's quite the orator! I thought he was calm, cool, collective, and held nothing back. I don't know how many of you read Order of 5ive, but I must say that if Bill Clinton were a greedy, evil tryant in charge of a secret government program designed to create monsters and super soldiers, he'd be Senator Aldridge from the 5ive series, particularly season two, which launched in July. 

When James and I plot storylines, we always look for outside resources to inspire our characters. When we created Senator Aldridge, I envisioned Aldridge as Bill Clinton possessed by a maniacal money hungry demon, bent on total US control, and in Order of 5ive Season Two, when Senator Aldridge ran for president and gave his nomination speech, it truly turned out to be something like Clinton's recent speech, at least in my mind, except for a ton of lies Aldridge was spreading, ;)

So, thank you President Clinton for inspiring one of our characters, though I don't view you quite as evil as our Senator Aldridge.
