The Return of the Clintons

That's Slick Willie for Ya!

I have to say that Bill Clinton's speech last night at the Democratic Convention did in fact make me swoon.  Now, don't get me wrong, I didn't agree with everything he said, it was just so refreshing to see someone speak with passion, self deprication and in complete sentences.  He hit a home run when talking about Kerry's service to his country:

Clinton staunchly defended the Massachusetts senator, saying that when young men such as himself, Bush and Vice President Cheney found ways to avoid going to Vietnam, Kerry volunteered for service there. And he mocked Bush and the GOP for suggesting that Kerry and his running mate, Sen. John Edwards (N.C.), would be soft on terrorism. "Strength and wisdom are not conflicting values," he said. "They go hand in hand."


Any student of fan of politics should see this speech, even if you detest democrats, its a great study in political theater.  Enjoy.

Comments:
Bill Clinon is indeed a very good orator. I don't think you could find anyone that would disagree. The problem with Clinton however, is that he has to be one of the biggest disappointments that ever served as a President. He could have been a great President given his charisma, oratory skills and political cunning. As is was though, he was just average. His ego and selfishness got in his way.

As for his speech, you saw a vintage Bill Clinton. Smooth and slick. If I didn't know that 90% of the facts he was talking about such as the economy, education, veterans benefits and crime were false, I would have been cheering myself. Trouble is, just saying something doesn't make it true. Nobody holds anyone accountable for what they say these days.

Bill has class though.
 
Thanks for your comments May! I agree, nobody holds anybody accountable for what they say anymore. Weather it is WMD in Iraq or "I did not have sexual relations with that women." Big Media sucks!
