Bill Clinton to officiate wedding

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/06/09/art.clintonspeech.gi.jpg caption =" Bill Clinton is presiding over a wedding Saturday."](CNN) – Bill Clinton will try his hand at a new gig Saturday: Wedding Officiator.

The former president will preside over the wedding of New York Rep. Anthony Weiner and longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, a source close to the former president tells CNN.

The two are reportedly set to be married at the famed Oheka Castle on Long Island.

The Clintons also have another impending wedding to look forward to – that of their daughter Chelsea and boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky later in July.

    Just because "slick willie" broke most of the 10 Commandments that doesn't qualify him to perform a wedding ceremony. Typical Godless immoral democrat

    I wonder who all from Goldman Sachs will be at Chelsea's wedding since Mark Mezvinsky works as an Investment Banker at Goldman Sachs and by the way GoLdman Sachs received around 10 Billion in Federal Assistance in I think 2009. Hey we can attend the wedding since we pretty much rescued Mark's job??????? seems only fair to me.

    We all know how much Bill Clinton valued his marriage vows. Can't imagine anyone in their right mind choosing him to officiate.

    What in the WORLD is Bill Clinton's legal qualification to marry someone?

    He is not a minister (God knows!), not a Judge, not a ship captain. Since when are washed up, philandering, perjuring, impeached, unemployed ex-presidents eligible to officiate at weddings?

    Anthony Weiner is a perfect name for a groom, don't you
    think ?
    He had better keep a close eye on the wedding officiator.
