Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Bid Makes Big Work For Rich Little

LAS VEGAS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If Hillary Clinton becomes president in 2008, it will be a big problem for impressionists like Rich Little.

Impressionists are expected to imitate the current president and Little says the fact that Senator Clinton’s voice is “an average middle-of-the-road female voice” is going to make it hard for male impressionists to give it justice.

He says it would be easier for a man to imitate her if she had a unique voice like Dr. Ruth or Julia Child.

As he puts it, “If she had a lisp or a cackle, she’d be a much better subject.”

Little jokes that Clinton may have purposely worked on her voice to make it hard to imitate and came to this conclusion when Bill Clinton was in office.

In his words, “[Clinton] phoned her and had me do my impression of her over the phone. Then she wanted to know if I did her.”

Little won’t say for sure if he is working on a Hillary impression, but admits there might be some surprises in store when he performs at the annual White House Correspondents Association Dinner on April 21 in Washington, D.C., which is considered one of that city’s biggest events.
