    Today's New York Times reviews Bill Clinton's new book "My Life" and even though he remains their ideal concept of a US president tore his book to shreds. Note the similarity of the name of the Clinton tomb as "My Life" as compared to Adolph Hitler's book Mein Kampf or "My Struggle."

    Bill Clinton can't do the liberals any good now. He is a liability. Even the revisionists who struggled manfully, but vainly, trying to vilify Ronald Reagan, can't rescue Clinton's tragicomic administration from the harsh, unforgiving glare of history. Clinton will now see - close up - the true character of liberals. They're vicious. They eat their own.

    The only problem there Musicman is for the most part the Clintons run the Democratic party still. He's gonna derail the Kerry campaign sure as hell. It should be fascinating watching for sure.

    Hell, yeah. Sharks in a feeding frenzy.

    Here's a pleasant thought: Maybe they'll all destroy each other!

    I'm going to love wathcing them walk the fine line of "supporting " Kerry while at the same time preparing for Hillerys' candidacy. This guy is so full of himself he doesn't even realize how stupid he will feel being FIRST MAN. Does the media REALLY need to tell us everything in the book or are we too stupid to read it? This is all old news.

    From left field,

    What if the Dems decide that Kerry has zero chance and decide to nominate Hillary instead. She could always claim that she "had" to do it, it was an "emergency":laugh:
    Unprecedented? Yes. But these are some strange days indeed.......

    My biggest fear. The Clintons are rich and evil enough to do it. With so little time between the covention and the election she could cruise. She may even hop in as veep to get a head start . On the other hand we may as well have the fight that all democrats want and see what happens.

    Bill Clinton loses his temper with David Dimbleby during a BBC television interview to be broadcast this week when he is repeatedly quizzed about his affair with Monica Lewinsky.


    Visibly angry: Bill Clinton
    The former American president, famed for his amiable disposition, becomes visibly angry and rattled, particularly when Dimbleby asks him whether his publicly declared contrition over the affair is genuine.

    His outrage at the line of questioning during the 50-minute interview, to be broadcast on Panorama on Tuesday night, lasts several minutes. It is the first time that the former President has been seen to lose his temper publicly over the issue of his sexual liaisons with Ms Lewinsky.

    The President initially responds to Dimbleby's questions by launching a general attack on media intrusion. When the broadcaster persists with the question of whether the politician was truly penitent, Clinton directs his anger towards Dimbleby.


    David Dimbleby
    The atmosphere, which was initially warm, then turns decidedly chilly. One BBC executive who has seen the interview, which took place in a New York hotel last Wednesday, said: "He is visibly angry with Dimbleby's line of questioning and some of that anger gets directed at Dimbleby himself. As outbursts go, it is not just some flash that is over in an instant. It is something substantial and sustained.

    "It is memorable television which will give the public a different insight into the President's character. It will leave them wondering whether he is as contrite as he says he is about past events. Dimbleby manages to remain calm and order is eventually restored."

    Mr Clinton agreed to speak to Panorama as part of the publicity campaign for his autobiography My Life.
