not to beat a dead horse (ba-da DUM! *rimshot*) but mommy and daddy didn't have to explain what a b.j. was .. all they had to say was the president lied under oath. that's what clinton did wrong. he wasn't impeached for getting a b.j. in the oval office, he was impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice.
YOU CAN DO IT, HILLARY! DA DO RUN RUN RUN, DA DO RUN RUN!
Some people probably thought it was a good segue as in "Ok, time to tell Joey and Suzy about the birds and the bees ..." Clinton was a sleaze the whole way through, and his wife turned a blind eye to his CONSTANT philandering. There are various books on them pointing to the fact that it's a marriage of convenience. Read a slightly sensationalistic book called "The Truth About Hillary," which I HAD to read because I got stuck at an impasse on the interstate due to snow over the forthcoming summit, so I hit the Barnes & Noble at the off ramp, got me a cup of hot tea ... and read that book, for free. I knew I didn't like her before. That confirmed it. There's also "Hell to Pay." You want to keep seeing Bill Clinton? Not me. The Dems sort of need to reinvent themselves for 2016. The GOP needs to seriously reinvent itself.
if its a marriage of convenience then its not philandering.
but, of course, etymologically, it would still be philandering.
which is why i dont trust etymologies.
'true sense' my ass!
The bumper sticker says:
Run Hillary Run
Democrats put it on the rear bumper. Republicans put it on the front bumper. Intelligent people put it in the garbage.
but everyone buys it. well played miles and hillary. well played.
Man, I was a dick 5 or 6 years ago; I'm sorry Madame Secretary. Now, will you please run for president in 16?
Shit, I still am, that is of course you and Cheney still blow donkeys.
Hillary, don't run. Just keep whipping your husband. Make sure he gets No-Doz, too.
Who can ever forget Slick Willie's lengthy, megalomaniacal speech before boarding Air Force One for the very last time. He just couldn't let go of the podium/microphone.

^--- this is, by a large margin, the most intelligent thing i've seen on archinect in a long time. the thoughtfulness required to not add to this thread is inspiring. it returns to me a bit of faith in the future of humanity i thought i lost. if anyone still does a 'best of archinect this week' or 'this year' thing, i nominate this post.
hey observant, where did you go to school?
Looks like someone wouldn't take "someplace good" for an answer. ^^
OFF TOPIC YOU TWO!!!
The full quote is actually "Take the money and Run Hillary Run.".
Like Jadzia said, "someplace good." Folks, please read the "Truth About Hillary." It might have some sensationalism, but when there are several books, like the other one mentioned above to boot, and about a FIRST LADY, it really makes one shake their head. They don't write books like this about the Bush wives nor Michelle Obama (who has the same credentials as her husband, worked in law, and is well-liked by most Americans). If Hillary is the front runner for 2016, I will abstain from voting. I'm sick of dynasties dominating the White House.
One more thing. It's too bad that the ability to cast votes isn't based on comparative intelligence. What a concept ... but wouldn't that be prejudicial? Nothing annoys me more than hearing some dufus on the street on TV with a microphone in his face say "I think he did a good job," about Clinton, without knowing anything more than that. Two things about Clinton: a) he raised the marginal tax rates, not obnoxiously so, which helped the coffers, while the Bush tax cuts drained them, and b) Clinton was in office squarely in the middle of two recessions which, according to what I've studied in a couple of macroeconomics courses, tend to come at fairly predictable intervals, except that this last/current one has "thrown out the rules."
Then you have to question why, as President, he couldn't do better than pudgy Monica Lewinsky, for whom her experience and her souvenir blue dress, is her claim to fame. If she hadn't commiserated with fellow bureaucrat Linda Tripp, who was probably jealous and had a makeover, including some badly needed plastic surgery, after the event, nothing would have become of this.
So, go ahead, I'm sure for the "packaged" thinkers on here, voting for Hillary will be just as trendy as driving a Prius. Do it. You'll feel better. The Dems have 3 years to dish up a better candidate and if Hillary keeps getting hospitalized and taking time to attend to medical issues, she may not even be a viable candidate. I'm a Dem, and I can't stand her.
Haha. That's funny. Grazie, Jadzia. Did you study in Italy, or are you from there? I recall some connection to Italy.
observant, suspect you talk more than you listen.
elizabeth warren 2016!
No, curt, I listen quite well and I also see what conformists architects can be (read: "wear same kind of glasses" in different periods of time). My political, social, or any other set of beliefs do not follow a "full left" or "full right" checklist.
