Here's What FOX Fans Are Saying:
"I could go into a long drawn out explanation on what I think about this, but I will just answer with one word — SCARY!" — Shelley
"I'd think the same thing of Bill Clinton in the Senate as I did him in the presidency — nothing! He was a disgrace and shame to our nation then, and will be again given the chance." — John
"I think that if Bill wanted to be the senator from N.Y., he should have ran against Hillary in November!" — Todd
"Can we stop going gaga over the Clintons? Hillary has not even gotten the nomination for president!" — Mark

"Send Clinton to Little Rock and let him be a librarian in his library" — R.D.
"If Bill Clinton is sent to Washington as a Senator, then I'll finally believe the country has truly lost its senses. The thought that Hillary might become president is horrifying. If the left takes over this country, we will all be doomed. Life as we know it will not exist." — Larry
"I'm fearful of this becoming a reality — the political arena has very little ethical conduct, and the mainstream media will never challenge the appointment of Senator Bill. The liberal media will redefine ethics until its acceptable to have bubba bill as senator." — John

"While Hillary in the White House is bad enough, appointing Bill Clinton to the Senate would be a disaster of the first magnitude. Haven't we had enough of carpetbagging politicians? The people of New York state deserve much better." — Wallis
"Bill Clinton as a senator — the man who a large amount of people think was an absolute disgrace to the United States presidency — will probably ruin the beautiful state of N.Y. even more. " — Steve
