Can't blame Bill for looking. It's better than looking at his wife.
While Hillary was recovering from the concussion, a reporter asked Bill how Hillary's head was. He said, "Not as good as Monica's."
To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan, and not quite enough time. -- Leonard Bernstein
It was more than phenomenal. Best political speech in a generation, though yesterdays inaugural address was in the ballpark.

Haha. The guy was a dirtbag. Completely spineless turd that happened to be in office at the right time in the technology/stock market boom...neither of which he had anything to do with.

Clinton's worst crime: Got a blowjob in the Oval Office from an intern.
Reagan's worst crime: Sold arms illegally for hostages and claimed he knew nothing about it.
I compiled a top 15 list of my favorite routines from the greatest stand-up comedian of all time, the late, great George Carlin.
Too many to count and my vote would be in that group
Bullshit. Clinton's worst crime was murdering the Branch Davidians
His second worst was flying in cocaine to an Arkansas airfield for distribution sales via the CIA.
Carry on with your presidential love fests.

The indoctrinated will no longer be able to deny it, only defend it.
I don't remember him doing that. Do you really believe the ATF called the White House for permission?
It's politics. Pick your poison.
I tend to agree with the guy wanting to save people over the guy wanting to get his crank sucked
Those are the only guys I trust

Save people? Tell those 24 civilians in Grenada that died during Reagan's unnecessary invasion how their lives were saved by Ronald Reagan. Oops I forgot we're only supposed to count American casualties when we go invading.
But how could Reagan have saved people when he sold arms for hostages (which again was illegal) when he didn't know anything about the selling of arms for hostages? How could he have saved people when he had nothing to do with what (as you say) saved those people. So either he did something illegal to "save people" and lied to the American people about it on live TV (sounds familiar). Or he was a senile old man that was just a figure head and had no idea what the people working for him were doing. It's one or the other.
That guy is trying to save money too
Not only Clinton. Jimmy Carter was an even bigger pussy.
Not only Reagan. Richard Nixon was an even bigger asshole.
Everyone that plans a career in politics is an asshole. They don't like working.
I watched many automotive plants in Michigan close after Slick Willy signed NAFTA. Sorta funny that many of the people that voted for him TWICE, eventually lost their jobs.
Not a fan of them but Bill killed the unions. The Big 3 moved assembly plants to Mexico. So did Tier 1 suppliers. The whole thing turned into a giant clusterfuck because Mexico doesn't have the skilled labor to support production. Very expensive to get good support people to work there now.
"Very expensive to get good support people to work there now."
Ya, it's tough to find someone to turn the wrench on that left rear lugnut.
And who laid the ground work for NAFTA.....that's right Ronald Reagan.
And the auto factories started closing in Michigan in the 70s. So are you going to answer the question of how Reagan could've "saved people" by selling arms for hostages when he said he had no knowledge of it?
Excerpt from Ronald Reagan's Nov. 13, 1979 announcement of his candidacy for President of the United States, during which he outlines his vision for the economic unification of Canada, Mexico and the United States. The original broadcast is approx. 23:42 long and has been preserved in the archives of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. The full-length video may be viewed in its entirety at the Reagan Foundation's official Youtube channel:
"We live on a continent whose three countries possess the assets to make it the most prosperous and self-sufficient area on earth. Within the borders of this North American continent are food, resources, technology, and undeveloped territory which properly managed could dramatically improve the quality of life of all its inhabitants.
"It's no accident that this unmatched potential for progress and prosperity exists in three countries with such long-standing heritages of free government, and so a developing closeness between Canada, Mexico, and the United States--a North American accord--would permit achievement of that potential in each country, beyond that which I believe any of us, strong as we are, could accomplish in the presence--or the absence, I should say--of such cooperation. In fact, the key to our own future security may lie in both Mexico and Canada become much stronger countries than they are today.
"No one can say, at this point, precisely what form future cooperation between our three countries will take, but if I am elected president, I would be willing to invite each of our neighbors to send a special representative to our government to sit in on high level planning sessions with us, as partners mutually concerned about the future of our continent. First, I would immediately seek the views and ideas of Canadian and Mexican leaders on this issue, and work tirelessly with them to develop closer ties among our peoples. It's time we stopped thinking of our nearest neighbors as foreigners.
"By developing methods of working closely together, we'll lay the foundations for future cooperation on a broader and more significant scale. We'll also put to rest any doubts of those cynical enough to believe that the United States would seek to dominate any relationship between our three countries, or foolish enough to think that the governments and peoples of Canada and Mexico would ever permit such a domination to occur.
"I for one am confident that we can show the world by example that the nations of North America are ready, within the context of an unswerving commitment to freedom, to seek new forms of accomodation to meet a changing world. A developing closeness between the United States, Canada and Mexico, would serve notice on friend and foe alike that we were prepared for the long haul, looking outward again, and confident of our future; that together, we're going to generate jobs, to create new fortunes of wealth for many, and provide a legacy for the children of each of our countries.
"Two hundred years ago we taught the world that a new form of government created out of the genius of man to cope with his circumstances could succeed in bringing a measure of quality to human life previously thought impossible. Now, let us work toward the goal of using the assets of this continent--its resources, technology and foodstuffs--in the most efficient ways possible for the common good of all its people. It may take the next hundred years, but we can dare to dream that at some future date, a map of the world might show the North American continent as one in which the peoples and commerce of its three strong countries flow freely across their present borders." (Ronald Reagan, Nov. 13, 1979)
