The policy change in question arose following a live 2003 broadcast of the "Golden Globe Awards," when the lead singer Bono from the Irish rock ban U-2 declared his award was "really, really, (blank)ing brilliant." During the 2003 Billboard Music Award, quasi-celebrity Nicole Richie declared "it's not so (blank)ing simple" to remove "cow (blank) out of a Prada purse."

"It's the economy, stupid" -- a phrase Clinton advisor James Carville made famous during President Clinton's successful 1992 presidential race. It's possible that the top issue in next year's election will not be Iraq or terrorism.

Making a bid to bolster her foreign-policy cred with a series of meetings at the U.N. building in Manhattan is none other than VP candidate, Sarah Palin. Not only will she be at a sit-down with the Iraqi president, chatting with the Georgian and Ukraine presidents, having talks with both Pakistani and Indian presidents, but also hanging out with Bono! These two will meet up as Bono promotes his non-profit to her: His ONE campaign that is "focused on fighting extreme poverty and preventable disease around the world!”
UPDATE: NEW YORK (CNN) – John McCain and Sarah Palin’s meeting with Bono was canceled Wednesday due to scheduling reasons, according to the campaign.

George Bush Presidential Library and Museum: Remarks to the Community in Bowling Green, Ohio,September 26, 1992
So Governor Clinton doesn't think foreign policy is important. But anyway, he's trying to catch up. You may have seen this in the news. He was in Hollywood, seeking foreign policy advice from the rock group U2. Now, understand, I have nothing against U2. You may not know this, but they tried to call me at the White House every night during their concert. But the next time we face a foreign policy crisis, I will work with John Major and Boris Yeltsin. And Bill Clinton can consult Boy George. I'll stay with the experts.
Larry Mullen and Adam Clayton join forces with R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe and Mike Mills to perform "One" at the MTV 1993 Rock N Roll Inaugural Ball for newly-elected U.S. President Bill Clinton.
