Well, Heck, If Everyone Else is Doing It…

Let me just state publicly that, after the November elections, I will have a place for Bill Clinton in my house as well.  He can do the dishes.

I mean, really.

Bill Clinton is not our president.  He is never going to be our president again.  Electing anyone–current Clinton, Edwards, someone from Clinton, Iowa, whoever–is not going to restore the glory days of the Clinton presidency.  Could we liberals just look in the mirror, say that to ourselves repeatedly until we hear it, and then move forward?

Shoot.

  2. Uh, most of us liberals had to hold our noses to vote for Bill Clinton, the centrist triangulator, when he was up for election. The glory days, huh? I guess I must have slept through them.

  3. Even though I’m on the other side, it’s plain to see nm is right. And so is B.

    Were I a liberal, I’d be hoping for a modern version of JFK, or Johnson. Clinton suceeded, but only because he defined success in such small terms. After the failed health care reform, he never tried ANYTHING bold, unless you want to count welfare reform, which was pretty much forced on him.

    If the left (or the right, for that matter) ran an optimist, who dreamed big and made people think they could do anything, I’d vote for him.

    But. I don’t know if such a person could get elected in this day or time. Americans seem to want our leaders to concentrate on the nickel and dime stuff. After all these years, of trying to remake the world, I understand the impulse.

    That was Ronald Regan.

    I will always be thankful to Bill Clinton for the FMLA. It saved my butt more than once. That was the best thing to come from his presidency on a personal level.

  5. I’d vote for George Clinton. Someone who ran Parliament like he did could surely handle Congress.

    As well as bring the funk.

    :lol:

    Laugh of the day!!

    Bill Clinton, well, what can you say, he knows how to give a speech. But quite a few liberals are still mad at him for crap like NAFTA, and even though I don’t think he should have been impeached for it, his tawdry little affair with Monica did embarass the Democratic Party and showed incredibly poor judgment.

    Still, I’d put an apron on him and have him do my dishes.

  7. Lee, that was brilliant.

    Damn innertubes have been down in Hooterville so I’m a day late.

    So Beale, he can do my dishes as well. No problem there.
