Cool Runnings

1. During a commercial break in a debate in 2000, X growled at Y in response to a comment made by him:
Don't give me that sh*t. And take your hands off me.
Y went on to bag the party nomination. In 2004, Z begged X to become his running mate and even offered to make him both Vice President and Secretary of Defense. Give me X, Y, Z.
