WASHINGTON — Chelsea Clinton gave her father strict orders to drop 15 pounds before her summer wedding — and former President Bill Clinton says he's nearly met that goal.
A noticeably thinner Clinton was at the White House Thursday and said he has just 2 pounds to go.
Clinton joined President Barack Obama for a meeting with the U.S. World Cup Soccer Team. The former president was recently named honorary chairman of the bid committee that's trying to bring the soccer tournament to the U.S.
Though the Clintons haven't announced the date of their daughter's wedding, the former president did let it slip that he has "more than a month" to achieve his goal.
While their soccer skills got the players into the White House, it was their fashion sense that caught the eye of the leaders. Clinton told the players he wants to join the team just for their stylish tan dress shoes. Obama agreed they were "good-looking" shoes.
