But Bill Clinton's impression of Bono was a valiant, if ultimately cringe-inducing, effort—at least in our humble opinion.
The 42nd president offered up his take on the U2 frontman's Irish brogue, including donning a pair of shades in a nod to Bono's signature sunglasses, while being interviewed by CNN's Piers Morgan for his Clinton Global Initiative Wednesday.
This after the rock star gave a spot-on impersonation of Clinton—Arkansas drawl and all—which drew big laughs just a day before at another CGI panel.
Bono did so after the erstwhile commander in chief was running late and when the latter finally did show, he and the activist-singer got down to business discussing this year's CGI theme Mobilizing for Impact and how NGOs can create strategic partnerships to leverage their resources.
Bono and Clinton have a history together of both working together and having some fun together; the U2 frontman and bandmate The Edge even crooned "Happy Birthday" to the former president at his Decade of Difference concert a few years back.
So duelling impressions between pals? We guess turnabout's fair play.
