Like a Record Baby, Right Round Round Round

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....
