More cattle futures?



Even though the president and first lady got lots of help from taxpayers in their sundry legal battles, the Clintons are still up to their necks in $6 million or more in legal fees owed to private lawyers.

Their incomes can't begin to pay off those debts and, meanwhile, their legal defense fund-raising campaign has come a cropper.

So what many people want to know is, how can Washington's Dynamic Duo possibly afford to buy one of those $1 million-and-up homes they've been looking at in fashionable Westchester County to establish the first lady's New York state residency to run for the U.S. Senate next year?

Best guess: Hillary the investment whiz will go back into cattle futures.
