Clinton says ...

.... 1) don't worry about the Republicans. 2) Obama is going to get health care legislation.

It's from an interview with Esquire. The Beck-Limbaugh-etc., axis -- emboldened by 'baggers -- will sneer. But the former president knows a bit whereoff he speaks when it comes to politics.

Clinton told Esquire magazine that lawmakers should put together the best health care measure for President Barack Obama, even if it must be fixed later.

"All we have to worry about is getting things done and doing them as well as we can," Clinton said. "Don't even worry about the Republicans. Let them figure out what they're going to stand for. 'Cause as long as they're sitting around waiting for us to mess up, they don't have a chance."
