Tweet of the Day: Bill Clinton's putt-putt

(CNN) - Former President Bill Clinton gave a shout-out to Rory McIlroy Wednesday night, letting the pro-golfer know that he's honing his game with some other pros.

McIlroy won the 2011 U.S. Open and the 2012 PGA championship.

    Psst, Bill. Rory's busy, competing in the first round of elimination playoffs for the PGA's coveted Fed-Ex Cup. As a matter of fact, he's just across the river from NYC. The Barclay's round is being held at Liberty National in Jersey City, NJ.

    So tweeting to a pro golfer now makes one a "regular guy"? I guess I'd better get on with my tweets to Tiger Woods even though he has no idea who I am...

    And the CNN-Clinton lovefest continues (shamelessly).

    Of course he's a regular guy. Except for the millions in wealth, international notoriety and secret service detail.

    Actually, it looks to me like it's one of those gophers from the Looney Tunes... you know, the real polite ones that keep saying "after you" and "no no no no – after you" and pleases and thank yous all around?

    Lol Bill Clinton is a double edge sword. On one hand the idea of Bill being the First Man of the White House in 2016 seems like a frightening idea, but at the same time just for the lolz/entertainment value there's infinite possibilities. Heck, why even have the Clintons in politics anymore? Just give them their own reality show, forget duck dynasty.
