I liked Bill Clinton a lot. I miss him. In so many ways he was such a better president than the drooling imbecile that the simpleminded NASCAR crowd has elected twice now.
But I've never cared that much for Hillary. Hillary is a very smart, politically savvy, intelligent and capable legislator. On many levels, I think she would make a great president.
But those folks out there who don't like the Clintons? They REALLY, REALLY don't like the Clintons. They spent 8 years accusing them of everything from petty real estate corruption to outright murder.
To those folks, another 4-8 years of hearing phrases like "The Clinton White House" and "Hillary/Health Care" carry so much baggage that I just don't think she can win. The religious, right-wing, conservative zealots will be so mobilized, and so motivated to prevent another "President Clinton" that even John McCain could win. Not that there is anything wrong with that. I like him too.
But my money is on a Barak Obama for President with Bill Richardson as VP ticket.
Barak has the outsider thing working for him. Richardson is a respected governor, international negotiator and former ambassador. This could be the perfect combination for repairing the damage of the last 6 years. I think this would be an easier sell than bring the Clintons back into the White House.
I mean, if Hillary wins, what the hell are we going to call Bill?
First Gentleman? First Husband? First Spouse? First Penis? First Dude? First Splooge Spiller?
I have no idea.
