(Newser) – To honor Bill Clinton for getting her safely home from North Korea, journalist Laura Ling named her daughter, born yesterday, after him. But rather than a girl named Bubba, she's christened the tyke Li Jefferson Clayton. Namesake William Jefferson Clinton “has been so concerned and caring,” Ling tells People. “He's such a wonderful human being.” Less entertainingly, the “Li” is in honor of her sister, Lisa Ling.
