Bill Clinton, with thunderous applause from Association Executives is now speaking. He was introduced lovingly by Helen Thomas, "the man from Hope, the man who gives us hope, we miss you" were the last words of her introduction.

Barf. I bet Clinton would do her too. Anything with a pulse.

Channel-surfing, I saw Bubba in a snapshot with Bill Cosby and Jerry Seinfeld on Entertainment Tonight. ET was talking about photos taken at the Emmy's now-useless stage area. Was he planning on making yet another Hollywood appearance?

There are still elderly women in Russia who wear pins with the image of Josef Stalin, as they pine for the days of "order" and "justice".

You know, I would really like to see Andy Rooney and Helen Thomas get together. Those two crazy kids seem rather, well, lonely. Loneliness is a funny thing. It can drive you crazy. Make you say strange things. Make you believe strange things. They could spend time making sense to each other. It would keep them busy. And off the streets. And out of our faces.

He wants so much to be relevant. I, I, me, me. This is what I did. Blah, Blah.

Here is what x42 knows (probably better than anyone else): He knows, when historians are looking back 25-50 years from now, that he will be considered the only transitional President to hold office for 8 years. A footnote who held office between two really important Presidents. This is what he knows, and it is destroying him.

He's not making any sense that I can make out...seem's to have sliced in terroist comments in a canned liberal whiney speech..by the way, has he always spoken with this much of a snuffed up nose...or is he just snorting something? Oh God, now he's talking about all the terroist attacks he had thwarted in his administration...GAGGG ALERT

The title of this group on C-Span is the "Greater Wash. Society of Assn. Execs". Sounds like a bunch of big government loving rats.

I was surfing the channels and saw Helen Thomas give her speech. I'm frankly surprised that Clinton could walk on the stage after the hickey Helen planted on his ass with that speech!! Quote: no other President did more to combat terrorism than Clinton (papaphrased). That hag!

I now know what Halloween mask I'm wearing this year: Helen Thomas. If that doesn't scare the hell-outta people nothing will

Journalistic integrity. The reason they don't wear a ribbon.

Actually, my wife is at this event tonight. The group is ASAE, I believe. I think it might stand for American Society of Association Executives. It's an association of association executives -- like the many, many associations that exist out there for social, technical, or professional groups. The speaker series they host every year is usually very top notch - despite the low regard I have for tonight's speaker.

I went to one of these last year with my wife to hear Cal Ripken, Jr. get interviewed for over an hour by George Michael (sportscaster here in DC), covered just about his entire life -- just a completely riveting talk that just cemented in my mind what an absolute class act that guy is.

Did you also catch this other Helen zinger: it's only because of the prosperity Clinton brought to this country that Bush is able to afford this war against terrorism

I wish her wig had of flew off her head when she made that statement because she has totally flipped her wig

A walk down memory lane via FR...note Helens email address for those interested in "sharing" their feelings on Klintons "fight" against terrorism

Email from Helen

And now for your reading enjoyment Helen rates the presidents

Helen Thomas rates the presidents

For Presidents Day, a rating of the most recent


UPI's White House correspondent Helen Thomas, who's covered every president since John F. Kennedy, came to Brown Nov. 20 to discuss her unprecedented and pioneering career in journalism. Before her arrival, she talked by phone to Linda J.P. Mahdesian, offering a report card on the presidents since JFK. In honor of Presidents Day Feb. 16, the George Street Journal presents Thomas' list.



Kennedy: He was inspired; he had lots of vision. He was the most eloquent president that I've covered. He made a great contribution to encouraging young people to go into public service. He set a goal to land on the moon in a decade, even though he didn't live to see it. He went for the first nuclear test ban, and paved the way for future arms negotiations. He gave a lot of people hope, which we haven't had since.

Johnson: Terrific. His outstanding contribution to the country was the Great Society. In the wake of the Kennedy assassination, he got through more tremendous social legislation since any president since Roosevelt - medicare, voting rights, civil rights, federal aid to education including Head Start, public housing, the environment, national parks, anti-poverty, you name it. He covered all the bases. His denouement was the Vietnam War. He didn't want to be the first president to lose a war - not that he would've been. But the best side of the ledger was his domestic achievement.

Nixon: He always had two roads to go, and he always took the wrong road. His great contribution is considered to be the trip to China. But he was part of a China lobby that kept Kennedy and Johnson from not only recognizing China, which was far-fetched, but banning it from joining the United Nations. In 1968 he promised to end the Vietnam War. Four-and-half years later, we were bombing the hell out of Hanoi. On the other hand, on the domestic side, he took a moderate approach to domestic affairs, he created the EPA and some other things. But his chief concern was foreign policy. He certainly was able to exert his efforts. He understood divide and conquer. When he found out that Communism was not monolithic, he proceeded to divide the Soviet Union and China. ...His dark side prevailed too often.

Ford: Very good president. He filled a gap in a very traumatized country. He stabilized the country, restored the confidence in the presidency. He got the country back on keel after the first president in history was forced to resign. He was very well liked, though the pardon took away from his presidency and hurt his reelectionc hances.

Carter: He certainly had several foreign policy achievements. The centerpiece was human rights, which was immediately abandoned by the Reagan administration and low on the agenda of the State Department ever since. He did save a lot of lives - political prisoners in Latin America and so forth - using our foreign aid to persuade the more tyrannical governments, he negotiated the Panama Canal treaty, the Camp David accords, and the SALT II treaty which was never ratified. He tried for four years to get hospital cost containment and the insurance industry and the hospital association laughed in his face. People are paying the price now. He was quite a visionary. He's making the best past president we've had in modern times. He was not successful with Congress, even when his own party dominated both the House and the Senate. He wasn't able to connect with the leaders - except when the chips were down.

Reagan: He was and is the most conservative president in the last 50 years. He turned the country to the right; it's still moving in that direction. There was a Reagan Revolution - ketchup was a vegetable on the school lunch menu. He certainly contributed - not the total success story of bringing the Soviet Union to its knees - but certainly he added to it by the tough arms race. He increased the Pentagon budget nine percent. He spent $1.5 trillion on new weapons, many of which are still on the drawing board. He was very amiable, very friendly, it was hard to dislike him. He never lost the support of the people despite the Iran-contra scandal. His winning personality and sense of humor stood him in good stead.

Bush: Foreign policy was his love. He feels that we didn't give him enough credit for his domestic achievements. But during the Gulf War he reached 90 percent in the popularity polls, which is unheard of. Still, it was the economy that took him out of the play. He held a lot of news conferences, we had good access as reporters. In retrospect, he certainly did try to moderate the Reagan revolution, although not totally. He was trying to win the support of the conservatives, but they never thought he was truly whole-heartedly behind their agenda. They always had a sneaking suspicion that he was a moderate underneath it all, whatever that is.

Clinton: I think education will be his major legacy. He's made tremendous strides in enhancing and broadening access to higher education, making two-year community college tantamount to getting a high school diploma - with tax credits, Pell Grants. His heart's in the right place. He tries to be a New Democrat, not an old-line liberal Democrat. That came to a test on the fast-track legislation where labor was able to influence House leaders. He lost his first two years in his people - twenty- and thirty-somethings trying to run the world. He's got his sea legs in terms of foreign policy.
