    A screen shot of Bill Clinton on CNN, doing his best Bono impersonation.

    Even better than the real thing it's not.

    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.

    We guess turnabout's fair play.
