Malfunctioning weather vane?

Via Instapundit comes news of former President Bill Clinton engaging in the typical liberal activity of rewriting history to suit current political currents. What’s odd here is how Bill Clinton seems to be tacking in to the wind, not with it, as the situation in Iraq is improving and other Democratic Party heavy weights are adjusting their stories the other direction. Is it a tactical necessity to let Senator Hillary Clinton play both sides, or is Bill Clinton spending too much time with sycophants?

he is drawing enemy fire to hillary’s position. she caused him huge problems with her bungling of the health care issue, and he paid her back with the monica humiliation. no way he wants her to be president, thus reducing his position in the history books as “husband of the first woman president”. scorpion love is not a pretty thing.

Scenario for Hillary’s landslide election. Bill leaves this realm in a particularly heart-tugging way. He jumps in the drink to save a puppy or has the “big one” while on the stump.

Now that’s definitely in the realm of possibility. Scary, but possible.

i have been predicting bill’s demise for over a year — due to his poor health. he looks dreadfull in recent pictures. if he was coking it up with his brother, in the 80’s then his pump is shot for sure. when bill dies, so does hillary’s appeal to anyone

cjm - don’t underestimate the Oprah factor. Hillary thinks she has the old lady/soap opera vote. She doesn’t now, but she would as a widow lady and you’re right Clinton does look awful. It may be his health or it may be that out-of-limelight he’s simply disintegrating.

Things didn’t go his way after he left office. He expected to run a shadow government from his replica oval office in Little Rock with heads of state and other dignitaries going to him instead of Bush.

erp: do you think oprah campaigning for obama will cut into hillary’s appeal (to the soap voters) ?

cjm. I don’t think Obama will be the candidate this time round. He needs a bit more experience and name recognition. This is a trial run for him and Oprah and my guess is he’ll support the Democratic candidate while she’ll step back into her apolitical stance.

i don’t know, he seemed to be faltering then gathered himself up and came storming back. he just presents a much more attractive face to voters, and not just in the literal sense. clinton is really struggling now and it isn’t a pretty sight. maybe it’s just wishful thinking but i really don’t think her personality can handle the realities of a national campaign; the crack-up has already begun and is gaining momentum.
