Subject: RE: BS: thoughts on Clinton
Yeah, Kendall. I don't have a problem with being disappointed in his actions/responses. I was and I know the guy. But I get tired of these Republicans claiming to be the protectors of the moral imperative, and it turns out that they are completely hypocritical. Does anyone not know that Reagan cheated on his first wife and had affairs. One was with Nancy. Newt Gingrich, founder of the Contract on America? Has there ever been a more hypocritical man. Should I go on? There are dozens of these examples. The point is this. Let us get back to arguing about the right way to get to where we are heading. Let us quit arguing about whether the destination is the same. What one is speaks louder than what one says they are. Bill Clinton sought to promote peace around the world more than most of his contemporaries. He is the first President who had an interest in the North of Ireland beyond just being a sycophant to Great Britains policy. He sought to increase the dialogue in the Middle East. And before anyone says he had ulterior motives with regard to his legacy, his interest was consistent throughout his EIGHT year Presidency.
