"If Expense Accounts Could Talk..."
If nothing else, the eruption of media interest in Bill and Hillary Clinton's Whitewater investment has helped further the President's goal of bringing jobs to his home state -- funded by the expense accounts of the reporters, up to 40 at any one time, who have been on the scene since the latest episode broke in December. Here are some of the things on which journalists are known to have spent their boss's money:
