Bill Clinton shares a 'selfie'

(CNN) – He's only been on Twitter for a few months, but former president Bill Clinton has almost mastered the "selfie."

He's not quite there yet, as evidenced by a photo posted Tuesday on Twitter of him and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates.


In what appears to be a photo taken by Clinton, the former president managed to get all of Gates in the frame, but only half of Clinton appears in the photo.

The picture was originally posted on Gates' Twitter feed.

"A @billclinton selfie from #CGI2013 as we sat down to talk for an upcoming @WIRED story," he wrote.

The two are together for the annual Clinton Global Initiative's annual meeting in New York.

    The popular President that the GOP hated, tried to impeach and shut the government down over. These people really learn from their mistakes!

    My mother used to take pictures like that at family picnics and gatherings. She'd group some folks together, but you could always tell whose picture that she was most trying to take, which was usually a small child. The entire child would be in the center of the photo, while everyone else would be lucky not to get their heads, shoulders, and armpits cut off.

    Every time I hear the phrase "selfie," I think of how the GOP is screwing the middle class and the poor. In their eyes, that's called a "quickie."

    "Bill Clinton shares a 'selfie'"

    Didn't that get him impeached?

    I'm grateful Twitter wasn't around in the 90s. Bill would've got himself into trouble, I fear.

    Blame Republicans For Obamacare (wrote)

    If the republicans had introduced a single payer system (the only system that will allow us, as an entire nation, to negotiate better health care prices), then we wouldn't have to worry about Obamacare today.
    -------------------------–
    You can add blame Republicans for Medicare to your list. They have fought health insurance reform for decades: insisting that insurers can reject you for pre-exisitng conditions; insisting that insurers can drop you if they consider you to be "high risk" or reach a certain age; insisting that insurers profits are more important that those health of their patients.
