Bill Clinton's Badass Equivalent: Bond or McClane?

I don't know if you knew this or not, but real-life supervillain Kim Jong Il imprisoned two American journalists in North Korea and former president Bill Clinton saved the shit out of them. Just strolled into the country like it wasn't even a thing and walked out with a couple of lady journalists, pausing just briefly when he noticed some dirt on his shoulder that required brushing.

Hard Bill: With a Penis, comes out in October, all over your face). But, the James Bond-inspired Mission KIMpossible is equally magnificent. I suppose I'll just have to release my trailer treatments and hope Paramount or Universal starts pouring money on me for one of them. Or both, really. It could be like
