(Newsweek Magazine, January 12, 1998)
Bill Clinton adopted Buddy the dog in December of 1997. Newsweek published this eerie prediction about Buddy in the January 12th edition of the Conventional Wisdom Watch :
I suspect a few weeks after this was published, Buddy the dog was Clinton’s only Buddy that he used to escape from Ken Starr and Monica instead of Paula.
It was reported that Buddy and Socks the cat did not get along 1.
President Bill Clinton hugs his dog, Buddy, before being interviewed by Jim Lehrer for the “NewsHour” Jan. 21, 1998 2.
Sadly, Buddy died a year after President Clinton’s term ended after being a hit by a car near the President’s New York home.
