- WASHINGTON, Sep. 11
In this week's New Yorker, David Remnick turns in an excellent and truly must-read behind-the-scenes look at Clinton's post-presidential life and travels.
For those interested in all things Clinton, it has Bill Clinton on the record saying things he normally won't say on those terms ("I am sick of Karl Rove's bullshit." and attacking the Washington Post's Sue Schmidt), and talking about presidential politics, including saying John Edwards ran too soon.

How's that "new tone" working out?
Ugh. I'm not interested in anything Clinton. However, in the way one keeps a wary eye on anything potentially dangerous, I try to follow what they say and do. It's not an interesting activity.
Susan Schmidt's reporting on the D'Amato Watergate hearings was a beacon of integrity in the MSM press. I believe she alone knew enough to get him impeached and convicted on far more substantial charges than Starr ended up going after.
bump for later
And what, pray tell do you mean, Bill? Truth is now bullshit?
You're a joke Bill and were a terrible President--the likes I pray we never endure again.
Hey Willie, who's your daddy?
Was that picture taken right before or right after all these idiots didn't allow the Northern Alliance to kill Bin Laden?
Another Freeper posted this should-be-bumper-sticker:
While Monica _____, Al-Qaeda grew.
You are so right! I sit here wonderin'what in the hell they're thinkin'.
Karl Rove's Secret Machine filled Bubba's coronaries with French-fries?
(You know, the same magic machine that moves hurricanes and makes Demonrats say unbelievably stupid things.)
I just love Karl Rove!
I can't stand the fact Bush's dad treats Clinton with such respect and then Clinton and his wife go out and trash Bush like he's pond scum.
There is a twisted, sick alliance here with the Bush dynasty...and IMHO, it relates to the NWO, North American Union covert plan...
Clinton is a serial rapist. That is a truth that will never be discounted on this forum.
Heh! How does "doomed from the start" sound?
So this President has taken the high road, he has shown nothing but grace, humility, and forgiveness towards those that have attacked him. Daily going about the public's business.
I know this approach has angered many on the right, includeing many on this forum, who want him and his administration to get into the trenches fight as dirty as those that attack him.
But this President has had the beneifit of watching and learning from previous Republican administrations. When your opponents control the media, you will never win a pissing contest.
Elections are not won only on the support of one extreme of the spectrum or the other. Elections are won by those voters in the middle that consider themselves moderate.
As many have noted, President Bush is not a conservative, he is just to the right of center. Anyone that gets elected to the office must either really be someone in the middle (or like President Clinton, be able to convince enough voters that he is).
The left has tried a number of tactics to bring down this President, they have all failed. The reason, unlike what they did to Nixon, the media has been unable to demonize President Bush. It is my opinion that if President Bush had went after the Clintons, or got into no hold brawls with the Democrats over every issue, the media would have been able to demionize him, and would have been able to bring him down.
The secret to winning is to play your own game, not the other guys. The President just keeps on pushing his agenda, being nice to the opposistion, and as Rush likes to say, this drives them crazy, forcing them to even more extreme action.
The latest from Bill Clinton reflect more on him then it does on this administration, and for one I can only say, keep talking Bill, we need the votes.
