Bill Clinton, "Nixon of the liberals," is a type that Max Nordau (1849-1923) termed "the highly-gifted degenerate." Such a person "will employ his brilliant facilities quite as well in service of some grand object as in the satisfaction of the basest propensities."
This writer articulately nails it.
The democRATS will bear the stain of der Schlickmeister for a generation.

"Clinton's legacy....perpetual minority status"........
HAVE TO LIKE THE SOUND OF THAT!
He nails the radical left to a tee....like the sheep that they are.....baaahhhhhhh
I remember those bumper stickers right after the '92 elections..."Bush lost. Get over it".
Liberals, Bush WON, fair and square, over Prince Albert, the Aristocrat of Tennessee...now when are YOU going to 'get over it'?

(Bush WON, Democrats. Now YOU get over it.)
This hits the nail on the head. Salute to the author!

(Olde English takes a long times to say, and we never say anything unless it takes a long time to say)
they pawned their credibility in defense of a man whose associates and appointees were convicted of felonies in unprecedented numbers,
I'm still waiting for it to sink in the heads of his supporters (including many media types): Birds of a feather flock together.
They can try to associate Ken Lay to President Bush till the cows come home, but that was an acquaintance, and Lay spent the night in the Clinton WH. But it illustrates that the libs understand the concept that the company you keep speaks volumes about you.
All during the Clinton years I marveled at the sleazy types surrounding and associated with him. We all know the list of names. The media acted like it was an accident they were partners with the MacDougals, for instance, instead of pointing out that it was an indication of what type of huckster he was.

What amazes me about the Clinton legacy is that fully 45% of Americans LOVE Bill Clinton. It's a bit disheartening to realize so many citizens love a man who used the power of the Presidency to make the life of one woman - who only sought justice for the sexual assault she suffered at the hands of Clinton - a living hell.

Wow. Right on. Clinton, "the highly-gifted degenerate," and his millions of enablers.
Frankly, if you look at Woodstock, Dr. Timothy Leary, the Black Panthers, the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, and all the rest of that craziness, there was something degenerate about the entire countercultural revolution.
Bill clinton came out of that mindset, as well as the Hot Springs mobster environment, and was the first criminal hippy president. Now we see the results. People talk about the high ideals of the hippy revolutionaries, but the whole business had an underlying sickness about it. All very well, maybe, for individual hippies to drop out privately and do their thing, and repent afterwards, but when a moral dropout is elected to the presidency, watch out.

Is the Seattle Times one of those alternative newspapers? An article like this is not supposed to be printed in the standard neocommunist, left wing media.
It is the self-loathing of dems after they prostituted themselves giving Willie figurative lewinskis that causes the strong anti-Bush feelings. They are sublimating, taking out their self-hate on W.
Dems aren't ethical folks to start with and their blind support of Willie on every point of filth and corruption didn't not rise to the level of "ethical." But, you are not allowed to mention this in the left wing media!!

Interesting take. Some great phrases here, well-crafted writing, very pointed.
