Hillary Clinton’s Athleticism on Display with Elusive Shoe-Avoidance Maneuver

Sometimes you can be walking along, minding your own damn business, and a shoe just flies out of the clear blue sky in your direction. What are you going to do?  Do you jump into a karate stance and bat it down like Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid on some ‘Wax on, wax off’ type of stuff. Do you slide to the left or right? Or do you simply allow the offending footwear to hit you squarely in your face?

Decisions are the spice of life. However, when a young lady chucked her shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton during a speech she gave in Las Vegas on Thursday, the former First Lady’s agility and athleticism, or lack thereof, was on full display as she commenced evasive maneuvers. Check out the video below for your guilty chuckle of the day. To her credit, Mrs. Clinton got a bit of a laugh from it as well, while the young lady was taken into federal custody after she attempted to leave the scene. Did someone say, "George W. Bush?"
