CNN.com - Bill Clinton on Bush uranium line: 'Everybody makes mistakes' - Jul. 23, 2003
"You know, everybody makes mistakes when they are president,' Clinton said. 'I mean, you can't make as many calls as you have to make without messing up once in awhile. The thing we ought to be focused on is what is the right thing to do now. That's what I think.' "
Now that is some funny shit. But in defense of good ol' Slick Willy, he was a whole lot smarter than some of the Democrats today.
a) He knows when a story is bullshit.
b) He knows that Saddam was a bad guy: "Clinton told King: "People can quarrel with whether we should have more troops in Afghanistan or internationalize Iraq or whatever, but it is incontestable that on the day I left office, there were unaccounted for stocks of biological and chemical weapons."
c) Hey, at least he kept spending down. Granted he had some help from the Gingrich Republicans, but still.
All told I would take Slick Willy in a second over Howard Dean.
