Bill just can’t help himself


The McCain campaign is already sending out emails with his quote:

For Immediate Release

Bill Clinton On “Candidate X” And “Candidate Y”

“For example, you’re a voter, and you have Candidate X and Candidate Y. Candidate X agrees with you on everything. But you don’t think that person can deliver on anything. Candidate Y disagrees with you on half the issues, but you believe that, on the other half, the candidate will be able to deliver. For whom will you vote?” President Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton
August 26, 2008

Of course, they leave out what he said immediately afterward:

“This is the kind of question that I predict — and this has nothing to do with what’s going on now — but I am just saying if you look at five, 10, 15 years from now, you may actually see this delivery issue become a serious issue in Democratic debates because it is so hard to figure out how to turn good intentions into real changes in the lives of the people we represent.”

But still.

Bill just can’t help himself

  1. Except he can help himself, he doesn’t have tourettes you know. Bill is narcissistic in the extreme, which is saying something because all pols are top tier narcissists, and he doesn’t like the fact that someone is going to take spotlight away from him.

    What he said afterward, about musing what the future may hold, is complete and utter bollocks and he’s just trying to cover himself.

  2. Does the McCain camp and certain media folk really think that American voters are going to pay attention to that Clinton quote? Then again maybe it is me who is the fool.

    “It’s summertime and the living is easy, Fish are jumping and the cotton is high, Your daddy’s rich and your mama’s good-looking…”

  3. Anyone thinking this is just an ex-president befuddled needs to remember this is the man that argued the definition of is. Good to see the Democrats are willing to lose out of spite.
