Hard to pass up this story
The William J. Clinton Presidential Center, to be dedicated on Thursday, is a futuristic glass-paneled rectangle cantilevered over the banks of the Arkansas River, evoking Mr. Clinton's metaphoric "Bridge to the 21st Century." It is a reflection of a man who famously crammed just about everything into his speeches and his presidency and has now crammed them or their facsimiles into this shrine he hopes will shape his legacy.
I still don't know if Bill Clinton represents a bump in the ongoing election decline at the presidential level for Dems, or a poorly-imitated but effective strategery for winning votes in a national and not just a regional sense. Or maybe Presidential politics really is about who you like more and who you dislike more. Or maybe a combo of all of the above.
There is no question that Bill Clinton was the most gifted politician of his era, a trait I don't think his spouse necessarily shares, nor does everyone who was associated with him (although there's talent in that bunch). And gifts like Bill's make up for a lot. My family liked his policies and hated his sideshow personal life. But since when have Presidential elections been about policy?
