Well, geez ... would he lie?

Bill Clinton's idea of helping Tony Blair with his heart problem doesn't ease the angina one bit:

Downing Street says it is "mystified" by reports that Tony Blair discussed his health problems several years ago with Bill Clinton. Mr Blair's spokesman insisted that his irregular heart beat, which caused him to be hospitalised briefly last week, had never happened before.

But ex-US President Clinton was quoted in the Sunday Mirror as saying: "I've known about this for a long time. He told me about it quite a few years ago. As soon as I heard what happened, I called to check he was OK. We had a talk and he sounded in good shape."

Excuse me for having a memory and a brain, but if anyone remembers, Mr. Clinton has a reputation for being a bit loose with the truth, and while we're at it, does anyone think this sounds awfully familiar to the "I Gave Bush a Plan to Defeat Bin Laden" story Clinton pushed a couple of weeks ago?
