clinton on clinton
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.
