Bart, the writer's jealousy of the Clintons is
She resents the respect they get from people
which she feels is undeserved.
Her statement that Clinton is no longer a rock
star seems to be wishful thinking
since Clinton's popularity has hardly waned.
If anything it's stronger in many ways.
He no longer wields the big stick of a POTUS but
is almost universally respected outside the U.S.
Unlike Bush who must have an audience screened
before he can show his face in public and has to
use storm troopers to keep protesters away, Clinton
strides into any venue and draws a friendly crowd.
He can also talk and answer questions without
an earpiece and a prompter to remind him where he is
and how to pronounce it. For a Republican Clintonmania
must be particularly galling because they say
living well is the best revenge and the Clintons
are living pretty darn well.
When somebody says they hate the Clintons ask
them why. Chances are they won't know.

Bart, I saw Clinton on Letterman, & the way
this article is written, it sounds as if Letterman was in Africa
with the President. The quote as written
is correct, it's just a clumsy way to put it. What the President
was saying is that he is looking to be in the
background when/if his wife becomes President. Silly man.
I don't think the whole article by Joanna Weiss
is favorable or unfavorable. I think she is trying to capture
what is a very odd circumstance, that of a past
President campaigning for his wife for the same office,
hampered by the fact that he is greatly loved
& for some reason she is vilified. In any case, she was
charming & funny on Letterman last week &
he was a delight on Tues night. And not for a second do
I think he will act the role of a male lion if
she is elected; as far as I am concerned I hope she gets him
as involved as he wants to be & I am betting
that will be quite a bit.
Bart, I read the Joanna Weissí article twice and
I donít know why you are perplexed. I thought it was
an interesting, good-natured description of how
the Clintonís roles have been reversed and how Hillary
is straining to equal Billís natural ability
to come off as a real, transparent person. I think the article did
a good job of describing how Hillary often seems
to be trying to hard to be all things to all people
depending on where she is and who she is with.
I donít think the article was in any way trying to dump
on Hillary but just illustrated the irony in
the roles Bill and Hillary now find themselves. By the way, I saw
Billís interview on Letterman and it was very
interesting and humorous, especially the comment about the lions.
This asshole was simply trying to remind everyone
what a "womanizer" the Big Dog is
... like he should be ashamed of that or something.
Anyhow, it is the whore's method of alluding to
something, without having to actually
say it and hang her ass out where it might just
have a boot inserted.
Bart, to me, it sounds like Bill is acknowledging
the fact that Hillary will DECIMATE any neocon in the
upcoming debates. That he looks forward
(as we all do) to seeing her humiliate whichever conservative
that gets their nomination in the next election
cycle. If it is to be, it's Hillary/Obama, or Hillary/Edwards for
(Kucinich is too weenie-like, but has great ideas.)
Hope my previous comments toward you don't affect
the judgement, but you're the only one
asking these types of questions. Still
think the Wege and Rude blow you out of the water.

Bart, this was a piece that played both sides.
This writer wanted to be both, mildly attacking and sort of
flattering. What impresses upon me was what I
read as her desire to appease competing interests Ė her
readers and her bosses. And what was interesting
is she mostly wrote about Bill Clinton (mentioned 6
times). That also tells me that she didnít feel
comfortable writing about Hillary (mentioned 4 times),
possibly because she was walking that tightrope
of wanting to be negative but not really. Her focus
should be on the candidate.
I think this writer had the pressure on to be
Hey Big Bart -
Weiss seized upon Her comment on Ellenís show,
about being perceived as a creature from another world,
as a convenient excuse to make a case that She
is, in fact, inhuman. A candidate who can only mimic those
warm and folksy political interludes. Not
at all like super-hunk hubby Bill, who lets his hair down with the
effortlessness of falling off a log.
Speaking of logs, that is what Weiss is actually revealing in her article:
Her blushing desire to seize Billís log.
