Just a quick post with a few thoughts I've had on the Chris Wallace/Bill Clinton interview.
I haven't the time or inclination to sift through and weed out who's right. Although I'm a Clinton fan and have noted in the past the horrible right-bias of Fox News, experience teaches that there's probably a grain of truth in both what Clinton said and in the conservative response. I did like the "I tried and failed." I don't think you'd ever catch our current President making such an admission.
But aside from the substance of the interview, two things:
First, I don't think this was an unplanned outburst on Bill Clinton's part. You don't get to be where he is without learning some measure of control over your emotions--especially on national TV, especially knowing (as he had to know) going in that this was likely to be an interview of a confrontational nature and thus being able to prepare for that. He may be many things, but I don't think stupid is one. And that, coupled with the fact that he's all of a sudden in the media again, really makes me think this is part of some bigger strategy.
Second, as alluded to in the title of this post, get a load of the spin that both sides are putting on this! If you're a Republican, Clinton had a "hissy fit", if you're a Democrat he "laid the smack down". The truth, as usual, is probably somewhere in between. But they spin us....
