Clinton does a little standup

Posted By on Sun, Mar 21, 2010 at 9:22 AM

Bill Clinton subbed for President Obama at the Gridiron dinner.

Clinton said he regretted having come to dinner without “either of the Bushes,” referring to his disaster-relief partners: George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. “I’m used to having them by my side when I walk into a disaster area,” Clinton said.

 

In a more serious vein, Clinton predicted that the Democrats would succeed in steering health care reform through Congress. “It may not happen in my lifetime or in [former vice president] Dick Cheney's, but hopefully by Easter,” he said.

    The latest in bogus Republican political attacks comes from Saline County, where Steve Lux, chairman of the county Republican Committee, has sent a letter warning members of the Benton-Bryant Chamber of Commerce that a progressive group working to elect Democrats in the county is allied with a socialist group that wants nothing less than "the elimination of private business." This is, of course, nonsense.
