The Fall of Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton, despite his Presidential "indiscretions" had the opportunity to retire with a decent reputation among liberals. He was off to a good start making a career as a relatively young man in international politics. But then Hillary ran for President:

Bill Clinton had "one of his famous meltdowns" at a weekend meeting with 15 superdelegates, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, "blasting away at former presidential contender Bill Richardson for having endorsed Obama, the media and the entire nomination process."

Said one attendee: "It was one of the worst political meetings I have ever attended."

When asked about Richardson, "it was as if someone pulled the pin from a grenade... The former president then went on a tirade that ran from the media's unfair treatment of Hillary to questions about the fairness of the votes in state caucuses that voted for Obama. It ended with him asking delegates to imagine what the reaction would be if Obama was trailing by just 1 percent and people were telling him to drop out."
Clearly Bill Clinton's guilt vis a vis Hillary Clinton is monumental.

The destruction of Bill Clinton's reputation is on it's way to completion. Conservatives always vilified him and now liberals have reason to see his avarice for the White House in full stunning color.

Too bad. It's hard to watch someone you once respected go down the drain this way.
