The Not-So-Curious Case of the Clintons’ 1998 Christmas Photo

One of my co-workers went to the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, AR this past weekend. Yesterday morning she came running into my office excited to show me a series of pictures that she found rather amusing. I agreed.

The pictures in question involve the four Christmas portraits that Bill and Hillary Clinton took from 1996-1999, with one in particular standing out:


What you might notice about this picture is that the married couple is not holding hands, nor even touching in any way. Odd, even for the Clintons, don’t you think?

Why does this jump out? Well, look at all four pictures. This is the only one in which they are not engaged in some type of embrace. (Click image to enlarge.)


The plaque below the pictures informs us of the years the pictures were taken:


So we know that the picture in question was taken in 1998. What could have happened in 1998 that would have made Hillary so disgusted with her husband that she couldn’t bear to touch him, even just to keep up appearances?

Oh yeah…this story broke:


Well that makes sense. Now that we have some context, I think the more amazing thing is that a Christmas picture was taken at all in 1998. Although, he didn’t have sexual relations with that woman, so…



  1. Hillary looks good in the 1996 picture and way younger too.

  2. Poor Bill. He’s a victim.

  3. Poor Bill. I bet he didnt get any Christmas nookie that night either!

  4. Ask yourself why Monica’s mother kept the semen stained dress in her freezer for two years? The DNA was captured for a reason – it was to get Clinton to invade Iraq. The Neocons called for Clnton to invade Iraq in their “Open letter to President Clinton” in 1998. See for yourself.

  5. Kap13: You must either be a girl or a desperate guy, I don’t think the words “Hillary”, “looks” and “good” should be that close together at any time when speaking about Sen. Clinton. She scares me, I get the vibe that she may eat children that come to close to her gingerbread house. I don’t know how Bill survived, it’s probably good the Secret Service were around.

  6. Cardboard says:

    I think that 98 photo looks like a cardboard cutout personally. Doesn’t even look like its the them. Light is not right.

  7. They look like cutouts of them propped up next to each other. What’s that metal thing between them?

  8. The same time period that Newt was calling for impeachment yet was also carrying on an extramarital affair.

  9. Maybe she is actually acting upset in an effort to keep up appearances, you know, seeing as how their relationship might have been nothing more than show (at least if you believe the rumors…).

  10. They were standing like that because in 1998 it was harder to photoshop them in to the same picture 🙂

  11. Or, “I’m going to milk this for all its worth in manipulating my way into the Presidency.” Nice try, Hillary, but nobody actually likes you. People like Bill and the idea of a woman President of the US, but not you

  12. You want a long long way to belabor the obvious here.

    Brevity. Wit’s soul.

  13. Rufus_T_Firefly says:

    Hillary tried using sex as a weapon, but she couldn’t cut Bill off. She didn’t know where he was getting it.

    Of course, if I had to make a choice between getting some lukewarm nookie from Hillary or engaging in hot jungle sex with someone who actually looks like they enjoy it, I’d pick the latter, too!

  14. Are they still together or it is only for public display.

  15. Public is not mad. they know what the truth is.

  16. It’s very simple to find out any matter on web as compared to textbooks, as I found this piece of writing at this website.

  17. whoah this blog is wonderful i really like reading your posts.
