Maybe Elvis will call in...

According to her website, Senator Clinton (D-NY) starts “the Conversation” tonight: HillaryClinton.com - Welcome

I’m guessing the first question comes from another former first lady:

“Mrs. Clinton wrote about her imaginary conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt in her June 10 syndicated column. She said she talked to Roosevelt about the role of a first lady.

"She usually responds by telling me to buck up, or at least to grow skin as thick as a rhinoceros," Mrs. Clinton wrote.”
CNN - Adviser downplays Hillary Clinton's conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt - Jun. 24, 1996


Apparently that’s the way Democratic Senators from New York frequently converse:

“Biking through New York's boroughs in 2005, I thought about some old friends, Joe and Eileen Bailey. Though they are imaginary, I frequently talk to them.” Schumer: How Dems Can Win White House - Newsweek Politics - MSNBC.com (H/T – NRO)

I can’t improve on that.

UPDATE: Senator Schumer has apparently struck a chord as Jonah Goldberg catches it at The Corner here and here (apparently the last time the Senator wrote about talking with them , they were the O’Reilly’s). James Taranto also couldn’t resist mentioning it in today’s Best of the Web Today - WSJ.
