I was surprised to see NationsBank chairman Hugh McColl sitting next to Bill Clinton at the Arkansas-Duke basketball final. Based on what the President has done for him lately, I would have expected to see Hugh sitting on his lap.

Remember, McColl started out on the Bush team, was lured to the Perot camp for a while, and ended up with the eventual winner. McColl might switch teams at halftime, but he'll always hang on to his old uniforms just in case.
