The impeached ex President BJ cliton, needs to let Mrs. B J Cliton do her own campaigning, and then this mis understanding would not occur...after all she is the wife of the first black impeached President and the smartest woman in the world.. and could do very good on her own..

Fearless Prediction Time: Hillary is going to come down with a treatable illness that is going to require her to be off the campaign trail until a few days before Super Tuesday. She will heroically campaign, in an extremely limited fashion, from her hospital bed, until that time. This illness will befall her within the next week, probably on the afternoon of December 7, but certainly before December 15.

"The man’s so crooked he couldn’t crawl into a snake hole."

Too true. He can hide quite easily behind a spiral staircase though.

Which remarks were misconstrued? His earlier remarks, when he was reported to have said he supported the war, but really didn't? Or his later remarks, when he was reported to have said he didn't support the war, but really did?

I can understand BillyJeff's frustration. The truth is, he has consistently been on both sides of the issue from the beginning, depending on who he was talking to. The media shouldn't have any problem reporting that properly.

He could stand behind a cork screw and never cast a shadow.

I’m thinking operable breast cancer. Something dramatic that cannot be ascribed to exhaustion.

He's as crooked as a dog's hind leg. When he dies, they won't be able to bury him, they'll have to screw him into the ground like an auger!
