The folks behind Clinton: The Musical are said to have invited the former first couple to attend a performance of what is coyly called a spoof of their eight years in the White House. Note to the box office: They're not likely to show up at the will-call window.

Nor Wholesale Wisconsin Badgers Jerseys , for that matter, are Newt Gingrich or Dick Morris, Monica Lewinsky or Kenneth Starr. Especially Starr.

Written by Paul and Michael Hodge, brothers from Australia, Clinton was first presented at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe two years ago and then had a run in London.

Now part of the New York Musical Theater Festival, the show reduces the Clinton years to a stew of sex farce and hypocrisy Wholesale West Virginia Mountaineers Jerseys , in keeping with the timeworn theme that politics is just show business for ugly people.

Clinton: The Musical is an equal-opportunity defamer: The president is both a policy-driven technocrat and sax-playing hound dog, so conflicted that he is portrayed by two actors; the first lady is a pants-suited force of her own, a senator in waiting. Even before they fight to save their legacy after the president's affair with an amorous Lewinsky, they must battle a power-mad Gingrich, a kinky Ken and a complicit, salacious press.

Retelling the story of the scandals that swamped the administration Wholesale Usc Trojans Jerseys , Clinton resurrects an awful lot of that dignity-free era: Whitewater and Paula Jones, Contract With America, the government shutdown, cigars and stained dresses. There's even the macarena.

About the only shoutouts missing are to Morris' toe fetish and William Rehnquist's impeachment robe.

If your idea of an evening that is pleasant "depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is", then this show provides a fine time.

Karl Kenzler as WJ the statesman and Duke LaFoon as Billy the party animal are quite good. Alet Taylor wrestles the tougher, more layered role of Hillary to a draw. Adam Arian's direction is smooth Wholesale Ucla Bruins Jerseys , the singing uniformly strong and the lyrics in songs like Sexual Relations and No often clever.

Even if the music isn't memorable, at least there are no Fleetwood Mac singalongs.

But the humor is relentlessly low, with Lewinsky under a desk and Starr in studded leather straps and black fishnet undies.

As 2016 draws closer, a debate grows over whether, politically, there may or may not be Clinton fatigue. Theatrically Wholesale Texas Longhorns Jerseys , at least, two tediously juvenile hours make clear: There certainly can be.

SYDNEY, Feb. 3 (Xinhua) -- The Australia-India Roundtable, a critical informal dialogue between the two countries, kicks off Monday in Sydney and comes at a strategic crossroads for the bilateral relationship, strained by recent controversies from accusations of racism to a stand-off over divergent nuclear policies.

A high-level delegation of Indian officials will visit Australia for the talks Wholesale South Carolina Gamecocks Jerseys , led by the Secretary (East) of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, Ambassador Anil Wadhwa.

Despite inheriting shared cultural values as Commonwealth nations, Australia and India have endured a rocky diplomatic path over recent years, inflamed by high-profile attacks on Indian students in Melbourne in 2011 and from Australia's refusal to export uranium to the non-aligned nuclear state.

The relationship hit a low point under Kevin Rudd's government in 2007 after the Labor leader refused to sell uranium to India for its status outside the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. While that decision was reversed by Rudd's successor Julia Gillard, the lingering taste has ensured frosty relations ever since.

However, Australia's Indian-born community has more than doubled between 2004 and 2009 to over 300 Wholesale Penn State Nittany Lions Jerseys ,000, making it the second largest non-European group in Australia after Chinese-born Australians and a shared passion for cricket has kept the social and cultural connections tight.

The dialogue will begin Monday, at the Lowy Institute for International Policy in Sydney, and continue on Thursday February 6 at the Australia-India Institute in Melbourne.

"These frank and creative discussions will be a chance to consolidate one of Australia's key strategic relationships in the Indo-Pacific region," said the Australian chair of the dialogue, Rory Medcalf Wholesale Oregon Ducks Jerseys , the director of the international security program at the Lowy Institute.

His Indian Co-Chair, Dr C. Raja Mohan, nonresident Lowy Institute Fellow, said "The engagement with Australia is one of India's fastest growing and most significant bilateral partnerships and has the potential to contribute to stability and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific at a time of great uncertainty in the relations among China, Japan and the United States".

The dialogue, convened by the Lowy Institute in partnership with the Australia-India Institute and Indian foreign policy think tank the Observer Research Foundation will be observed closely by Australia's Foreign minister Julia Bishop and her team Wholesale Oklahoma State Cowboys Jerseys , fresh from a visit to New Dehli in November.

At the time, Bishop indicated that Australia would support India's full membership into the exclusive Nuclear Suppliers' Group, the non-proliferation watchdog.

While in Sydney, the Indian delegation will also visit the University of New South Wales (UNSW) for discussions on scientific research partnerships and meet NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell.

The delegation will also hold talks with senior Australian officials in Canberra as well as meeting Commonwealth Government Ministers and visiting the Australian War Memorial.

According to the Lowy Institute, about 40 Australian officials, scholars Wholesale Oklahoma Sooners Jerseys , parliamentarians, journalists and business representatives will share views with the Indian delegation during the roundtable discussions.

The talks are aimed at producing practical recommendations to advance Australia-India relations in trade and investment, education, people-to-people ties, defense and diplomat.
