Bill Clinton on Obama: 'Nobody's accused him of murder yet'

Whatever problems Obama is facing with recalcitrant Republican opposition, Bill Clinton wants you to know he had it way, way worse.

From The New York Times:

[T]here is a counter view being offered by a former Democratic president that as far as personal attacks go, he, Bill Clinton, had it worse. "Nobody’s accused him of murder yet, as far as I know. I mean, it was pretty rough back then," Mr. Clinton said last month in an interview aired by PBS, when asked about the partisan climate facing Mr. Obama. [The New York Times]

Clinton is referring to (ludicrous) conspiracy theories that bubbled up about the death of his friend and legal counsel Vince Foster. Sure, conservatives question your birth certificate and call you a socialist, but a murderer? Only Bubba gets called that.
