Forget running for President in 2016.
Hillary Clinton clearly has a future as an acrobat.
While delivering a speech at the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries Conference in Las Vegas today, the former First Lady managed to dodge a shoe thrown in her direction by an angry audience member.
And not only did the 66-year old remain upright, her quick wit was kept fully intact.
“What was that a bat? Is that a bat?” Clinton replied on stage. “Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque du Soleil?"
"My goodness, I didn’t know that solid waste management was so controversial. Thank goodness she didn’t play softball like I did."
The assailant was quickly apprehended by the Secret Service and is in custody at the moment.
In December 2008, George W. Bush also had a shoe thrown at him by a journalist in Iraq. He was a little slower on his feet than Mrs. Clinton.
