  •  Awesome diary! Recall the Lewinsky timing... (0+ / 0-)

    This was two weeks after the Lewinsky story broke.

    I think it's pretty clear the neocons seized upon an opportunity of Clinton's weakness to push him to the wall on the Iraq issue.

    And Clinton was acquitted shortly after he ultimately agreed to airstrikes in December 1998.  That drove out the U.N. inspectors and set the stage nicely for W.

    Tit for tat?  I think so.
