    WASHINGTON - For Democrats, there was only one problem with Thursday night’s Democratic National Committee unity dinner in Washington: one of the invited speakers totally outshone presidential candidate John Kerry.


    It came as no surprise that the star of the evening was former president Bill Clinton, who gave a virtuoso performance, reminding the crowd of why he is the only Democrat since Franklin Roosevelt to win two terms in the White House.



    I liked clinton right up to the point where he lied on the stand.

    John Kerry is Bill Clinton without the personality, charm, or ability to speak ethusiasticly. Which doesn't leave much.

    Bubba is still reminding people that for better or worse he's still the effective leader of the Democratic party. Y'all might have to whack him to get rid of him kind of like a roach.

    Mr. Clinton is not known for his accuracy in American history but no one seems to mind. I guess somewhere in history he forgot all about Truman.

    If anyone recalls Mr. Clinton was quoting Lincolns Gettysburg address and stated it was in the declaration of independance. Now if the President can make such a stupid moronic blunder and no one cared....

    Then there was Al Gore, the other genius. If you recall he saw a bust of George Washington in Montecello (I believe it was Mont.) and had to be told who it was....

    Scarey?

    I think so.

    So Clinton thinks - no forget that - he doesn't.

    Oh please. Clinton clearly is not a moron. I saw him on C-span a while back giving a speech on the effects of globalization on American foreign relations, and he displayed tremendous knowledge and insight. It's so annoying when people dimiss American presidents as stupid. You can't win the highest office in the land and be a moron. Even president Bush, for all of his inability to articulate himself very effectively, is clearly an intelligent man, though not much of a reader and somewhat anti-intellectual. But then again, so was FDR.

    Truman was not elected to two terms. He served a large enough chunk of FDR's fourth term to be considered a full term, and was then elected to a second. He was only elected president once.

    I didn't state that Clinton was a moron, the statement read he made a stupid moronic blunder by confusing the Gettysburge address with the Dec. of Ind. The Gettysburge address and the Dec. of Ind. are completely different as I am sure you know that - so why doesn't he?

    I certainly don't know why he made the error. You're right. He's human though. Just look at some of the things George Bush has said before. "Rarely is the question asked: is our children learning?" HAHAHAHAHHAH!!!!!! Oh man!!

    What is funny is that the media does ensure the public knows of Bush's blunders -

    The other funny Clinton story was when he was asked a variety of political questions that he couldn't / didn't or avoided answering and yet he answered a question about his favourite style underwear!

    So the world could go on and they do about Bush's blunders - but I have found Clinton to be the King at that - only the media sheilds you from that.
