Bill Clinton ... he's not bitter at all, is he?

    I'd like to say I'm surprised, but at this point I have to say I'm not. I have to wonder if Bill wasn't driving the HRC campaign's overwhelming expectation that Hillary would somehow still end up with the nomination even as the vote totals started adding up. Sure seems like he's not yet come to terms with the fact that he will not end up being co-president.

    Bitter ... party of one?

    I mean, that's a hell of a statement for an ex-president to make, even to his confidants. As noted later in the story, Obama is the Democratic nominee and you just don't treat your party's presidential nominee like that, no matter what you may think of him in private.

    Bill Clinton is an angry black man.

    He's always been a poor loser. Takes things way too personally.

    Clinton probably needs to go get laid. ::) ::)

    This isn't about his wife losing. Not at all. It's about the fact that his family will not be acquiring any power directly in this election, which is all they ever gave a damn about. It's why she moved to New York in the first place.

    If I were betrayed by my own party, I'd take it personally, too.

    (Waits for the wrath of the SJ Obama supporters...)
     
  7. No wrath here, just curious if you're serious. If you are, what the hell are you talking about?

    Or at least have some more sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.

    He wasn't betrayed; the Dems went with the hot candidate they think can win. That's how politics works. Clinton, as much as anyone, should know that. BYM2 had it right; this is about power, nothing else.

    Depends on how you define the meaning of the word "ass"...

    He's understandably pissed. If Hillary was the nominee, he and she would be campaigning in different parts of the country, and Bill would be enjoying plenty of strange poontang.

    Bill's attitude does not seem to be real helpful if his wife wants to veep, does it? Unless he really thinks he can't win without her on the ticket, why would he invite that headache into his administration?
