happy birthday, bill clinton


this man is a mere four years older than i am, and he's a former potus - now, i never hoped to attain the position of "leader of the free world" and certainly our man bill made mistakes BUT it's so weird (at least to me) that my generation has been producing world leaders . . . how can that be happening, when i sure don't look my age (so i'm told), don't act my age, and with all of my worldly experience (not!) i can't imagine myself in such a position of power.

talk about planning for the future with a tenacious determination. clinton knew early on that he wanted to be president, and was very calculating on his road to the white house - shows what decisions and determination can accomplish, don't you think? and what can one do but applaud a man seeking the presidency who played the sax on national television - clinton certainly knew how to play to his base

now, if we could stop hilary from getting the dem nomination in 2008 - she can't be elected president, no way, no how, and the dems HAVE to come up with an acceptable candidate if there's to be ANY hope for a change in washington

anyway, to spare my friends the horrible experience of hearing me sing, and because i'm not marilyn monroe, i'll just say again:
happy birthday, mr president

wishing you all sweet dreams tonight
bye for now, cat

That was a mouthful. Pun intended

give the man a cigar!
of course, pun intended - this post could take on a life of its own!

I still think BC will be written up as one of the great presidents in the Country's history. I don't see anyone in the Democratic party with any real leadership ability who has an agenda, except to be President. That's the problem. Although, when Bill first got into office, I'm not sure he had any real agenda, other than to be President either...But, what an intellect and the charisma to get policy changed...on both sides of the aisle. I like your birthday posts. Thanks.

Sort of strange when all of a sudden one is older than the president...
Back in another life I was involved in several presidentrial campaigns. Got an interesting perspective in self sabotage from Gary Hart.
Skier has it right...all they want to be is president..with no other agenda.

i agree as to the agenda of the wannabe's . . . the dems' problem, or at least the one looming largest today, is that hilary is the front-runner for the 2008 nomination and she's just NOT electable! the last thing this country needs is another candidate who is so polarizing, she won't be able to hold the party together . . .
my theory, which i've developed over the past year or two, is that cheney will resign as veep "for health reasons" in the next six months or so, and the republicans then will have a candidate who will have the power of incumbancy for 2008. scary, huh? i sure hope i'm wrong!
as always, thanks for your thoughtful comment!
