In case anybody is wondering:

This blog has been hard on Bill Clinton in recent weeks, for a variety of reasons (lies about Obama & Co., policies he supported while president). And he did the Democrats no favors when he fooled around and subsequently lied about it in the Paula Jones case and when speaking to the nation. But, to be clear, those actions did not merit impeachement or removal from office. The Republicans took a serious constitutional tool, impeachment, and used it for low partisan purposes. And for that, Republicans deserved a decade in the political wilderness (instead they were rewarded with George Bush Jr. as a two-term president).

But the past is past and as far as Bill Clinton's behavior this election cycle, he's been a turd and may very well twist the Democratic party in such a way that they lose in November.
