Final Request of a Dying Priest

The old priest lay dying in the hospital. For years, he had faithfully served the people of the nation’s capital in Washington D.C. He motioned for his nurse to come near.

“Yes, Father?” said the nurse.

“I would really like to see President Bill and Senator Hillary Clinton before I die,” whispered the  priest.

“I’ll see what I can do, Father.” replied the nurse.

The nurse sent the request to the Senate and waited for a response. Soon the word arrived; the Clintons  would be delighted to visit the priest. As they went to the hospital, Hillary commented to Bill, “I don’t know why the old priest wants to see us, but it  certainly will help our images and might even get me elected President. After all, I’m IN IT TO WIN IT.” Bill agreed–it was a very good thing for her  campaign once they put out a press release about it.

When they arrived at the priest’s room, the old priest took Bill’s hand in his right hand and Hillary’s hand in his left. There was silence and a look  of serenity on the old priest’s face. Finally Bill Clinton spoke. “Father, of all  the people you could have chosen, why did you choose us to be with you as you  near the end?”

The old priest slowly replied,  “I have always tried to pattern my life after our Lord and Savior Jesus  Christ.”

“Amen,” said Bill. 

“Amen,” said Hillary.

The old priest continued, “He died between two lying thieves. I would like to do the same.”
