Bill Clinton to Betty White: Happy Birthday! Run for President!

Given Betty White‘s devoted fan base (of which we are proud members), we imagine it can’t be too hard to advertise NBC‘s Betty White birthday celebration, set to air tonight at 8 p.m. EST–all you’d have to say to get us to watch is “Hey. It’s Betty White. Tune in”. But in case that isn’t enough to turn the heads of people who don’t own the complete Golden Girls on DVD, this teaser clip might just do the trick.

This past election season proved the power and influence of an endorsement from President Bill Clinton, and now everyone’s favorite Arkansas smooth-talker is throwing his weight behind a new kind of campaign.

In the video, Clinton says of White, “In a time when our nation is still bitterly divided, it’s important to have a leader who’s won the respect and affection of our nation in the way that Betty has”. Plus, Clinton points out, “The position would come naturally to Betty, as she has lived for so long in a place called the White house.” Har har.

We know we just got through election season, but…we have to say we fell for this promo hook, line and sinker. Betty White for president! Where do we pick up the T shirt?
