    William Clinton did not leave the White House. He oozed out of it, leaving a trail of reeking corruption that left even his most faithful defenders gagging in revulsion. First, to escape prosecution for perjury in the Monica Lewinsky case, Clinton admitted lying under oath, had his law license suspended, and paid a US$25,000 fine. Next, the Clintons made off with $180,000 of White House furnishings, and a truckload of gifts from influence-seekers, including expensive tables from a certain Mrs. Denise Rich. Then, at midnight on his last day in office, Clinton pardoned 140 criminals. Drug dealers formed the largest...

    The Reality Check ^ | 8/28/2006 | Daniel Clark
    At this year's International AIDS Conference, former president Bill Clinton fielded criticisms that he had not "done enough" about the HIV virus. In activist-speak, this means that he didn't throw enough of American taxpayers' money at the problem. Of all the criticism that could have been leveled against him, this is the most absurd. During Clinton's last year in office, the U.S. government spent $12.2 billion to fight AIDS. If it were possible to simply spend the disease out of existence, we would have done it long ago. If attendees of the conference wanted to challenge the former president, they'd...

    Bill Clinton Calls Iraq 'Big Mistake' Nov 16 2:23 PM US/Eastern By LARA SUKHTIAN Associated Press Writer Excerpt: DUBAI, United Arab Emirates Former President Clinton told Arab students Wednesday the United States made a "big mistake" when it invaded Iraq, stoking the partisan debate back home over the war. Clinton cited the lack of planning for what would happen after Saddam Hussein was overthrown. "Saddam is gone. It's a good thing, but I don't agree with what was done," Clinton told students at a forum at the American University of Dubai. "It was a big mistake. The American government made...

    HANNIBAL, N.Y. (AP) — Some boys and girls in an Oswego County school district must sit in separate sections of their school buses following the arrest of two students for engaging in sexual activity on their ride home. State police said a 14-year-old boy was charged in juvenile court with forcing a 13-year-old girl into a sexual act and a 16-year-old boy was charged with a misdemeanor count of sexual misconduct involving a 14-year-old girl. Investigator Stephen Cadwell said the Hannibal Central Schools students were all on the same after-hours bus ride Nov. 7. "These cases are coincidental," Cadwell said....

    Sen. Hillary Clinton has been in politics long enough enough to know that polls can be misleading. So she told us yesterday that, despite a recent survey that indicated only 68% of men would be willing to vote for a female president, she thinks the time is right. "It depends on the woman," she said at the New York Women in Communications Matrix Awards luncheon yesterday at the Waldorf-Astoria. Indeed, the New York legislator may very well be that woman on the 2008 Democratic ticket. Cristiane Amanpour agreed. "I feel Americans will be ready to empower a woman." And CBS'...

    Hillary Clinton goes to a primary school to talk about the world. After her talk she offers question time. One little boy puts up his hand, and the Senator asks him what his name is. "Billy" he said "And what is your question, Billy?" she asked. "I have three questions. First - whatever happened to your medical health care plan? Second - why would you run for President after your husband shamed the office? And third - whatever happened to all those things you took when you left the White House?" he asked Just then the bell rings for recess....
