: : I remember reading a phrase in a published article about President George
Bush, Sr. The article likened him to "every woman's first husband". I chuckled
at the phrase at the time, but now and again it has retrned to my memory and I
wondered what the writer might have had in mind. Any guesses? Thank you.

I thought Al Gore was everyone's first husband. Maybe they revised the phrase. I'm not sure what it meant -- boring, staid?
