Lil' Miss Mary Kiss Me Where the Sun Don't Shine

I wish he was STILL president!

I was reading about the Bill Clinton/George H.W. Bush trip to the places that were hit by the tsunami earlier today, & I was reminded of one of the main reasons why Mr. Clinton should go down in history as one of our greatest presidents. I think he's capable of being friends with anyone, which is especially admirable when you consider what the Republicans put him through over Monica Lewinsky--err, I mean just about everything he did the entire time he was in office. (Just imagine what would have happened to him if, as Bill Maher pointed out on "Real Time" last night, the Jeff Gannon scandal had broken while he was still in power.)

Things have gotten too ugly in politics in recent years. Each side is too eager to brand the other a "traitor" or a "fascist" (although I've found that the Republicans have been throwing the terms "traitor" & "unpatriotic" around much more than the other side's been throwing "fascist" around in recent years). No one listens to each other anymore, & there's no diplomacy (& we're learning about the ramifications of a lack of diplomacy every time we read about the low opinion most countries have of the U.S.). Despite the weaknesses he may have had in his personal life (& plenty of politicians have had similar weaknesses, so it wasn't fair to treat him as he was treated), Bill Clinton was a diplomat, & it makes me feel good that, several years after he left office, he's still striving to be a uniter rather than a divider.
