Space Invaders On The Campaign Trail

They laughed way back in the 1980s when President Reagan
suggested that the people of the world would unite if an alien
space form threatened the globe. But now the idea is back - and
to cheers - because Sen. Hillary Clinton has raised the specter
of world unity. It came during a campaign event when she
referenced the movie Independence Day. According to the New York
Post, she said, "Remember that movie Independence Day, where
invaders were coming from outer space and the whole world was
united against the invasion? Well, why can't we be united on
behalf of our planet?"

Some presidential UFO watchers noted that she was actually
ripping off her husband, former President Bill Clinton, who used
the same language after watching the Will Smith movie.

Now Reagan allies tell us that the whole thing started with
former President Reagan, who made repeated comments about world
unity in the face of an alien attack, especially around the time
of the last flyby of Halley's Comet. "It looks like she stole
the idea from Bill who stole it from Reagan," says one.

Of course, you could be asking: Why is there a site dedicated to
what presidents say about UFOs? Check it out here:
