Who should Bill Clinton plagiarize for his convention speech?

It's the Democrats turn for their National Convention. Since Melana Drumpf plagiarized from Michelle Obama's 2008 convention speech, I figure that the potential First Husband, Bill Clinton, should also be given some leeway here.

Who's speech should he pay homage to by swiping a paragraph or two? Drop some sample lines that he should use in his speech for this week's DNC.

I am, and shall always be, your friend - Spock, from Star Trek II, The Wrath of Khan.

Bonus points if Elvis yells, "Khaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnn!"

He should plagiarize Obama's first nomination speech, in it's entirety - complete with impersonation of his voice.

And then deny everything and blame it on a speech writer....

@tsarstepan,
I'm going with Mamie Eisenhower.


Hillary runs the country and I turn the pork chops.

@ehBeth,
You've never witnessed the 'Chaplin' speech, I take it?

I'm certain she's heard of one of Chaplin's most famous talkies of all time, The Great Dictator (1940).

@tsarstepan,
That's nice.
Nicer still if she answers for herself though.
Don't you think?

@mark noble,
I don't think you realize that this is clearly a joke thread, not that you actually have a sense of humor in the first place.

I'm going with G W Bush. "There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again.”

Actually, I don't think Bill Clinton's ever been accused of plagiarizing and I heard nothing in his speech to suggest he did the other night. (Afterall, how many people have given speeches about how much they love Hillary and how great a person she is?)

If Hillary decides to go that route tonight she should consider Neil Kinnock or Deval Patrick. After all they were good enough for Biden and Obama to steal from.
