White House tour

Smith was treated this evening to a candlelight tour of the White House where he received a hero’s welcome from longtime friend and associate Chelsea Clinton. “I was so, so worried about you!” exclaimed the usually stolid Clinton, throwing her arms around him. “This is a big, nice house,” said Smith, commenting on his surroundings. Despite three weeks stranded in space, Smith appears in good health. “I sure hope not all his muscles are atrophied,” winked Clinton.
