In Case You Missed It: More Tired Lame Clinton Bashing

RECEIVED Mon., June 21, 2004

Dear Editor,
   I imagine from all the hysteria from the left that "it's the most important thing in the world to get rid of Bush," most decent, honest Democrats would step up and do what they could to defeat him in the upcoming elections. The most powerful democrats in America are uniting in an unprecedented effort to get Bush out of the White House. Well, all but two. Hillary and Bill Clinton have decided to sit this one out, in fact, considering that the deliberate release of his book at this point of the campaign is going to take the spotlight from John Kerry when he desperately needs to begin defining himself seems calculated to hurt his chances at winning, not helping them. And without a doubt a Kerry/Hillary Clinton ticket would win, easily, but that might lead to her being a two-term vice-president, which would stop Hillary from running for president for eight more years, when her age would be a consideration. So, rather than step up and do what it takes to remove Bush from office, Hillary is sitting this one out, waiting for her own chance to be president. Nice, eh?
