For those of you that missed the midnight ball drop in Times Square last night- here it is.
That's quite a smooch Ryan Seacrest gave his hottie girlfriend- it even beats the infamous Gore-Tipper lip lock at the 2000 Democratic Convention.
I met Tipper once- at a NYC Sheraton Hotel fundraiser in 1992. My impression in two words: 'cold fish.' Not friendly. Aloof. But Hillary? She was warm and gracious as I worked the VIP room as the campaign's 'Bouncer.' Ha ha- true.
Anyway, I understand why Al had to force himself to kiss her. But what does this have to do with the 2013 ball drop or the New Year?
Back to Al and Tipper, you know they ended up separating. After 40 years! Wow. Who would get tired of him? Tall, hunky, super-smart. Not me. I'd never get bored. Can you imagine the pillow talk?
In order to foster international cooperation, it is also essential that the United States rejoin the global community and lead efforts to secure an international treaty at Copenhagen in December of next year that includes a cap on CO2 emissions and a global partnership that recognizes the necessity of addressing the threats of extreme poverty and disease as part of the world's agenda for solving the climate crisis.
Well, it's always fun to watch the ball drop. GA's fighting a cold so I dropped before the ball did. Were any of you there in Times Square?
But really, I wish you all a very happy 2013.
2012 was a year of challenges. 2013 will be a year of recovery and Discovery.
