      I'll eat my damn hat if they do that. The Republicans using Clinton? Who's still alive and can argue for himself? And who is Satan to the grand majority of their base? And whose wife they expect to run for president in three years?

      Clinton's public approval is not that high, anyway - I think it boosted after his surgery but it's usually in the 50s. Reagan, however, is a god.

      •  As I recall, (none)
        Clinton's popularity was actually higher than Reagan's for most of his presidency (not that you'd ever get the press to admit that).  But you're right, though; the GOP would rather eat live worms in Hell than associate themselves with the hated Clinton.

    •  I put nothing past the GOP (3.50)
      They might bring out Clinton and it's a legitimate concern, but I think it's worth the risk.  And if they want to give Bill Clinton a soapbox to talk about Social Security, I think that works in our favor.
