Straining for Victory

To prove his strength, U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer today lifted a replica of the Stanley Cup over his head at the New York State Democratic Convention in Buffalo. Not to be outdone on the day she received her party's endorsement for Senate, U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton attempted to lift former President Bill Clinton over her head. She was unsuccessful.

Sources close to Sen. Clinton are downplaying her inability to bench press her husband. But many within the party are worried that her vulnerability on the strength issue could impact her presidential aspirations, in light of televangelist Pat Robertson's recent claim that he can leg-press 2,000 pounds in his sneakered feet.

In a related story, there is still no word on the condition of Mr. Robertson's pants.
