Bill Clinton is giving the keynote address Wednesday night at the DNC.

Apparently Clinton has refused to submit his speech text for review.

What’s your guess, full throttled support for The One, throw The One under the bus, or something in between.  Admittedly it’s hard to know with Clinton, since he may use...

Clinton is not on Barack Obama’s campaign staff, is not a trusted adviser, does  not set Obama’s strategy.

But Bill Clinton is pretty good at sabotaging...

A PBS documentary about which supporters of Bill are not happy:

Monica Lewinsky has attempted to keep a low-profile after her role in President Bill Clinton’s impeachment scandal made her name the butt of many late-night jokes. But she’s likely to become a topic of discussion again when PBS airs its much...

Spotted by the wife about two blocks from our house in Ithaca.  She was surprised I had not spotted it yet.

Actually I had, but if I took the photo and posted it, there would be hell to pay.  But since she took the photo it’s okay.

Figures.

I was on the bus this morning heading back to Ithaca from my Tea Party talk at the Cornell Club in NYC when I spotted on my PDA a post by Ed Morrissey about an AP Fact Check debunking Obama’s claim that secretaries pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires.

That’s saying a lot.

Unlike the children who run the Democratic Party, Clinton recognizes that Medicare and other entitlements must be reformed, and that the Democratic Party is harming the country by making “do nothing” the main focus of Democratic Party campaign strategy:

But ABC News was behind the scenes with the Wisconsin Congressman and...

1. Why did it take until after the Pennsylvania Senate primary for details regarding the offer made to Joe Sestak, and the use of Bill Clinton as the conduit, to leak out?

The Atlantic Magazine thought it would be able to speak poetic historical justice, by splashing the headline that the original reviled one, Kenneth Starr of Monica and Bill and Blue Dress and Impeachment fame, had been arrested for running a Ponzi Scheme.
