NEW YORK, Nov 20, 2005 (UPI via COMTEX) -- U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., fulfilled the promise she made on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show and took the comic for a ride on the Staten Island Ferry.
The TV talk show hostess' official "tour guide" pointed out all the sights Saturday as the women made their way through New York harbor to what Clinton has called the Big Apple's "forgotten borough," the Bronx, the New York Post said Sunday.
Clinton drew a blank when DeGeneres asked her why The Bronx is always referenced with its definitive article.
"Oh, that's a whole other story that I don't have time to make up," Clinton said laughing.
DeGeneres said she was thrilled with the former first lady's tour.
"I actually didn't think she'd be able to do it," DeGeneres said. "It means a lot to us that she took the time to show us around."
DeGeneres is in New York taping her syndicated show, "Ellen," all week, the Post said. Clinton is scheduled to be on Monday's program.
