Match the following:

A) Hugh Rodham

B) Tony Rodham

C) Roger Clinton

1) Was adopted into the clan of a local political strongman while attempting to corner the hazelnut market in the Republic of Georgia.

2) Toured North Korea with his rock band, and was quoted as saying he found the performance level of North Korean artists "higher than that of any country in the world."

3) Ran as Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Florida and got 30 percent of the vote.

4) Visited Cambodia in vague pursuit of business deals and befriended its human-rights-abusing prime minister, Hun Sen.

5) Got arrested for drunk driving three weeks after receiving presidential pardon for drug conviction.

6) Married and divorced Senator Barbara Boxer's daughter.

7) Walked down the aisle with eight-months-pregnant bride.

(Answers: A-3; B-1,4,6; C-2,5,7.)

You will note that in this crowd, Hugh Rodham has been the discreet brother. True, the Senate race was a humiliation, and yeah, he was in on the hazelnut deal. But until now, in the ranks of delinquent presidential relations, he seemed pretty benign. Quieter than Billy Carter, less expensive to clean up after than Neil Bush.
