Well here is a remark that has to make any Clinton fan smile.
“I thank her every time she sings ’Evergreen’ for me at political events,” said former President Clinton, who called Streisand to the stage and handed her the award.
These were President Clinton’s words in tribute to Barbra Streisand as she received the Chaplin Award at Lincoln Center. Everyone who is anyone was there.

Bill and Hillary Clinton dined with industrialist Len Blavatnik and hedge-fund manager Richard Perry. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. President Gary Cohn left his seat with Anchorage Capital Group LLC’s Kevin Ulrich to visit at their table.
The gathering last night on the promenade of the David H. Koch Theater rounded out a Film Society of Lincoln Center tribute to Barbra Streisand as the recipient of the 40th anniversary Chaplin Award, named after its first recipient, Charlie Chaplin.
I could not agree more with this remark!

“Someone told me when I was elected president that politics was show business for ugly people. That was before Hillary got into it.”

“Ever since I can remember, people have been calling me bossy and opinionated,” Barbra Streisand told a crowd at Lincoln Centre on Monday night. “Maybe that’s because I am. Three cheers for bossy women!”
The crowd, which included Bill and Hillary Clinton, cheered for pretty much anything connected to Streisand all evening as the star of song and screen was honoured for her film career with the 40th annual Chaplin award from the Film Society of Lincoln Centre.
