Here's Proof Bill Clinton Is Destined To Be The World's Greatest Grandpa

Posted: Updated:

Former president Bill Clinton has a very particular set of skills -- skills he has acquired over a very long career.

He created tens of millions of jobs. He perfected the art of charisma. He even adopted a plant-based diet. And soon, Clinton will take on the monumental, onerous task of being a grandfather.

This is a lifetime commitment that requires a certain amount of dedication and grit, and the will to get one's hands dirty (in dirty diapers and spit-up, to start). But worry not, Clinton already knows how to handle a baby. From these signs below, it appears Clinton is practiced enough to take on the role as a full-time job.
