Bill spoke up and I could toss this $1 bill out the window and make someone happier down below. Al spoke up saying that he could toss a $10 bill out and make 10 people happy. Hillary, not to be outdone and thirsting for future political quests, spoke up saying she could toss a $100 bill out and make 100 people happy. Chelsea spoke up, I could toss the three of you out the window and make the whole country happy.
