A Big Reason Bill Clinton Shouldn't Return to the White House

The Clintons have been in the news even more than usual this week thanks to the New York Times gossip piece on the state of the Clinton marriage.

Byron York sets that article aside and identifies a more substantive reason Bill Clinton should not return to the White House as First Spouse: his financial entanglements since leaving office.

York writes:

"Would it make sense if Laura Bush had business deals in Dubai, and Brunei, and Taiwan, and all sorts of other places? Would that be accepted as normal practice?

"Of course not, and it wouldn’t be for Bill Clinton, either.

"So the role of the former president in a possible Hillary Rodham Clinton administration is a very serious issue indeed."

This thought-provoking article is worth reading at length.

Ah yes, Laura Bush the perfect first spouse. Faintly reminiscent of a little town called Stepford, but then that's how Republicans like their women.

If your comment is what passes for thoughtful liberal political analysis these days, Republicans have nothing to worry about.

(See Dennis Prager's "The End of Liberal Thought," linked at my blog on May 23rd.)

Best wishes, Laura
