The Politics of Persecution

Never has any President had to endure such hardship. Never has one man had to stand as strong under the harsh light of scrutiny, all the while trying to steer a nation to a safe port in the storm. I don't think that Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever...But I do think that he was treated very poorly. Yes, he had "relations" with an intern (not cool). While this was wrong, and it is what most people remember of his Presidency, that's not what it was all about. I will always have a special place in my heart for Bill Clinton; he was the first President that I had a chance to vote for. He wasn't perfect. But, I would take another 8 years of Clinton economic prosperity and safety over another 4 years of deficit, illegal war on Iraq, the environment, and the American people. Pundits will look for a legacy; Bill just tried to defend his. [SFGate]

Morals? Really? Not the Republicans...Sorry, wrong number. They would rather just change the rules so that no one notices that even if they get convicted of a FELONY, they can stay in Congress, and even keep their leadership positions. [NYT] [SeattleWeekly]
