Ms. Clinton's description of the "network" that was "out to get" her husband from Day One sounded very similar to the vast, left-wing network that has been out to get President George W. Bush from his first day in office. Is it possible that this behavior is simply politics as usual? That, at least in this, Bill Clinton wasn't anything special or out of the ordinary? Just something to think about.Can't be -- because then the Clintons wouldn't be world-historical, and I don't think their egos can handle it.
The alternative, of course, is that the political war has gotten so out of hand (and started to do so with Clinton, or maybe Nixon) that both sides engage in massive ideological and personal warfare on their opponents, all the time; however, I don't think we're quite there, yet.
