    Clinton's bowling skills a bit rusty
    Posted: 06:30 AM ET

    (CNN) -- Hillary Clinton is lucky Barack Obama didn't bite on her April
    Fools Day wager.

    Appearing on the talk show Ellen Monday, the New York senator showed
    her bowling skills may be every bit as lacking as those of her chief
    rival. On a makeshift bowling alley on the show's set, Clinton missed
    the pins entirely on her first try, and only knocked out one on her
    second and final attempt.

    Her bowling performance follows that of Obama, who scored only a 37 at
    a Pennsylvania bowling alley earlier this month. Obama later called
    that score "terrible," and joked, "My economic plan is better than my
    bowling," to which a fellow bowler quipped, "It has to be."

    Clinton herself later ribbed Obama for the display, challenging him to
    a "bowl-off" for the Democratic presidential nomination.

    "A bowling night. Right here in Pennsylvania. The winner take all,"
    she said. "I'll even spot him two frames." Clinton quickly revealed
    that was an April Fools Day joke.

    She told reporters later on her campaign plane she even has her own
    bowling ball, bag, and shoes from her days in the White House, though
    acknowledged she hasn't bowled since those days.

    BOTH of Kerry's wives were rich, GG. He's right up there with McCain in that department.

    Hasn't bowled in years but carries around a ball and shoes. On a plane. I'm convinced she is mentally ill to the point she cannot stop lying.

    The story said she told reporters on her plane that she has a ball and shoes. It doesn't say that said bowling equipment is actually on the plane.

    You're right, Joe and thanks for the correction. I skimmed the article on a bus between terminals in Philly and got it wrong.

    Does the White House still have a bowling alley?
    At one time it did.
    So it would make sense that if it still did, then she would have at least shoes.

    First time I saw this I thought it read "Miss Butterball" and that Hondo or Yawn was cracking on how she was fat or something.

    No knock on the sport, but this much attention paid to bowling? As part of a presidential campaign? In these dire times? We have become a deeply stupid country.

    Coulda been softball or volleyball or quoits. I'd have said the same.
