Bush vs. Clinton: Who's got the sharper shoe dodging instincts?

(CNN) – A woman hurled a shoe at Hillary Clinton on Thursday during a speech in Las Vegas, according to the Secret Service.

She ducked and it missed her, joking afterward about the incident that occurred during an appearance before a recycling trade group.

"My goodness, I didn't know solid waste management was so controversial," she quipped.

The moment is reminiscent of President George W. Bush's famous duck in 2008 when an Iraqi journalist hurled a shoe at him.

Side by side, who's got the sharper shoe dodging instincts, would you say?
