Hogan Talks to Fortune Magazine

November 18, 1998

NEW YORK (AP) _ Hulk Hogan knows exactly how he’d handle Saddam Hussein.

``Put him in the ring with Hulk Hogan,″ the professional wrestler boasted to Fortune magazine.

Hogan, inspired by Jesse Ventura’s election as governor of Minnesota, recently said he’ll run for president. He reminded Fortune in its Dec. 7 issue that his new name is Hollywood Hogan (``My close friends call me Wood″) and relayed some of his other political notions.

When asked whether he would have had an affair with Monica Lewinsky, Hogan replied: ``I’ve already been through that in my life, so I could be a better president than Clinton. Wherever he’s going, I’ve already been.″

By the way, Hogan also said he’s against human cloning and believes the Federal Reserve should not have aided a bailout for Long Term Capital Management L.P., the hedge fund that nearly collapsed in September.

``I think we should let nature take its course financially,″ he said.
