Was it simply the constraints of his liberal mindset, or was it something even more threatening to our national security?

thanx to jla and Wolverine for the audio
The Clintons are back.
Sidney Blumenthal-much hated former Clinton aide, ethically challenged former journalist-$850,000 advance in hand, has a new book out on May 20, attacking everyone who ever attacked him or the Clintons, rehearsing once again the old right wing conspiracy, every attack on them, answered. The right wing conspiracy revived, answered, again.
Hillary's book is next.
Could somebody please tell these people to shut up? The Clintons suck up every bit of the available air. Nothing is left for anyone else. They are big, too big. That's the problem.
The 2004 candidates need a chance to get some attention, to rise to Clinton's level, which they never will do as long as the likes of Sidney Blumenthal are playing into the hands of conservatives in insisting on debating the scandals of the 1990's. The Republicans shouldn't have impeached him for it, but he shouldn't have given them the ammunition. And we shouldn't still be discussing it.
Why are we? Or more accurately, why are they?
Not because it serves the interests of the Democrats of the future.
It doesn't help Howard Dean, or John Kerry, or Dick Gephardt. It gets Sidney on TV shows. If the issue is ethics, no one has less than Sidney Blumenthal. He used to call me during the Dukakis campaign, which I was running and he was supposed to be covering, to offer covert advice, which if I accepted might result in better coverage. Much later, when I criticized him, he tried to get me into trouble with my editors. All the while, I was defending his boss. That's Sidney. He's Hillary's best friend. No wonder the Republicans are delighted to see him return to the spotlight.
It raises money for their causes.
The Bill and Bob (Dole) show has proven to be a collossal bore. The ratings have fallen. Is anyone getting the message? I fear not.
Let's not mince words.
Hillary Clinton is never going to be president of the United States. There is no more divisive figure in the Democratic Party, much less the country, than the former first lady. And I like her. But many women don't. Even Democratic women. Even working women. Not to mention nonworking, independent, non political women. She can be a great senator. She's smart, hard-working and effective. She is much respected among her peers.
But the more people who talk about her as a future president, the less attention the current candidates, who might win, receive.
Revisiting the scandals of the past does no service to the Democrats of the future.
Bill Clinton is a brilliant man. But the more attention he gets, the more the Democrats of the future suffer. He would be the first to say this, if it weren't about him.
Enough with the Clintons. Please. Not for the sake of the Republicans. But for the Democrats.
This clinton-machine effluence defies not only the laws of logic and decency but also the first law of thermodynamics -- conservation of energy.
That is, if one fails to considers entropy.
The second law of thermodynamics states that the quality of energy in a closed system is degraded irreversibly. Physical, chemical, and electrical energy transform into thermal energy --heat. Reversing the process, e.g., heat into physical energy, cannot fully occur within the system without an inevitable loss of energy in the form of irretrievable heat. Energy is not destroyed; it is merely unavailable for producing work. The irreversible increase of this nondisposable energy in the universe is measured by the abstract dimension called entropy.
Clinton corruption is all about the irreversible degradation of the energy in our closed system. A leftist band of heat-producing useful idiots is currently assisting in the clintons' $8-million--make that $20 million--revisionist assault.
Contrast Sherman with clinton Administration veteran, Berkeley professor, J. Bradford DeLong, who observed missus clinton up close:
There is a lot of talk these days, most notably by voluble nervous Democratic operatives like Susan Estrich, about the clintons sucking up the oxygen, but no one is paying attention to the irreversible transformation of light into heat by the clintons.
Once we understand that the latter process is irreversible, we will begin to do what we must.

Definitely a "Jump the Shark" moment.
If a "pacifist" can't answer softball questions from NPR, it's all over.
CINDY SHEEHAN'S JUMP-THE-SHARK MOMENT ping
When this liberal was destroyed by NPR (of all people!) she was screwed. Finished. Put a fork in her.
Cindy Shaheen has more than used up her fifteen minutes of fame.
I like it! But can you make it so it does NOT perpetually LOOP?
Good information. However, Cindy decided her first jump wasn't high enough, and right after Katrina hit, she took the time to blame the hurricane on, yep, you guessed it, George Bush.
It's unfortunate that the heroic actions of her son will be marred by her actions.
Some day I hope she realizes this and shuts up.
Was this posted on NPR. I couldn't find it from the link provided. Where did you find it?
The Sheehan interview by Neil Conan is posted there.
The RATS are in big trouble, Cindy Sheehan and all the groups that support her are the base of the party. Why didn't Hanoi Kerry try to show up the Prez and meet with Cindy ? What will the base do when Roberts gets confirmed ? Can you say "third party" ?
Thanks, MT. :)

Is this the title of the NPR article? If so I still can't find it on NPR.
"What, me worry?"
THE THREAT OF TERRORISM AS CLOSE AS
A CLINTON TO OVAL OFFICE
how the clintons are handling
the hillary dud factor
the NPR title: "Cindy Sheehan and Families of the Fallen." It is the original interview.
"CINDY SHEEHAN'S JUMP-THE-SHARK MOMENT?" addresses that interview.

PJ...What about making Ma Sheehan the new DUFU mascot? Since she blows enough smoke on her own you'd just have to superimpose her image over the beaver's.
Sounds like she is saying "this guys a d'ck, I have two minutes".
