In response, one of Clinton's campaign advisors, Mandy Grunwald, suggested a radical new strategy, in which the 46-year-old Arkansas governor would be presented as a hip young dude, while also using the national platform to dismiss Flowers' accusations. Grunwald's pop culture bombardment technique landed Clinton the cover of several gossip magazines, as well as Nightline, Phil Donahue, Don Imus, and a pretty solid Simpsons gag. And the night on Hall's show would have been another run-of-the-mill talk show interview had Grunwald not been there. At the last minute, before Clinton went on the air, his advisors made him change his tie, handed him a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses and a sax, and told him to break America's heart -- but in a good way this time.
After Clinton's swingin' late-night rendition of "Heartbreak Hotel," America instantly forgot about the Flowers scandal. Hall went on to say, "It's good to see a Democrat blowing something other than the election." That ... wait, was Arsenio actually funny? That's the biggest bombshell yet.
