Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton made an appearance on ?The Daily Show? Monday to share the heartwarming work of his Clinton Global Initiative, but the climax of the interview was much more fun.  Jon Stewart put the former president on the ?seat of heat? and asked: ?Mr. President, Hillary Clinton may be running for president.  If so, what is the key to defeating her??

Wow!  Maybe if Hillary wins the presidency in 2008, we can have Bill’s genius as well.  Stuff like employment, reduced deficit, etc.  It’s about time we get someone who can make friends with the rest of the world instead of the current joke or “devil” in the White House.

This interview was amazing! The right-flappers must be stewing in their seats after hearing
how Clinton spoke of their tactic to polarize americans.

In fact, they spent so much money to impeach him, because he half apologized for american slavery.

When future generations look back to review past presidents, Clinton will surely rank among the top five.

Another wonderfully eloquent display from Clinton, the guy is clearly the best political performer since Reagan by a country mile.

I know that he is not liked by a lot of leftist Dems [of which I would probably count myself] but this guy has got a political radar second to none.

It is pretty evident that he and Hillary have sensed that the only way to win the White House in 08 is to stick in the center [like he did for most of his presidency] and peel off the moderate Republicans and independents.

Bottom line is that 99% of anti-Hillary forces on the left [and I am not a real fan of hers myself at the moment] will end of voting for her anyway so the election really comes down to the amount of middle of the roaders she can win.

As much as I would love to see a guy like John Edwards head the ticket I really doubt that he, or any other leftist Dem, could win in a General Election, so the only realistically winnable option is a centrist approach.

I guess it comes down to how much personal hatred of Hillary is left over from the 90’s [surely that must have died down by now, especially with Monica] and of whether America is really ready for a female president.

My heart says for us to go for Edwards/Kerry/Feingold but my head says that Hillary, with a solid PR campaign and a ton of cash behind her [plus the inestimable feel good factor of Bill in the campaign] that she has a better shot than anyone else in the field.

MAKES YOU SICK TO THINK WHAT HE COULD HAVE DONE HAD HE NOT BEEN OWNED BY THE BIG MONEY GUYS.

I wonder if Bush would get that reception in a few years time?

Yep, he’s definitely one of the most charismatic people on planet Earth.

Compared with the current occupant of the White House, Clinton is a genius. However, now that I have time to review and reflect on his tenure, he sadly fails to meausre up as a great Democratic leader. A Repblican, maybe, but Democrat no.

While Bill has plenty of charisma, he is still a DLC Democrat and cares more about American corporations than an America of We the People. He sold out the American Middle Class with NAFTA.

No, I agree with Thom Hartmann: Bill Clinton was one of our best Republican presidents.

I do not want him back nor do I want Hillary who has NOT served us in New York State.

As a Latin man, I am proud to say that the Kennedy’s (especially Bobby), Jimmy Carter, & Bill Clinton exemplify what a leader can do to UNITE people of all creeds & races.  We, as Americans, have lost our diplomatic skills.  We used to be able to walk into a room & BS our way to obtain what we wanted.  Now, we have “W” w/ an M-16 “spreading” democracy.

Wow, I thought how could he answer that and Bill gave the perfect answer. This guy is so smart. I think like Jimmy Carter we did not appreciate what we had until he was gone. Clinton really should be the head of the Democratic Party.
