Bill Clinton’s new book has outsold any book in history for first day sales. It may sell more copies than any book in history. Boy do the Clinton haters hate that. The media reviewers say the book is boring. But the public thinks different and are voting with their dollars. So – who is right? The public is.
Clinton is after all America’s greatest president. And that’s why everyone is so interested in him. We all long to go back to Clinton’s America when we had peace and prosperity – when we were wondering what we were going to do with the surplus and people were suffering from “sudden wealth syndrome”. Now we have war and terror – big brother reading our email – tracing our moves – listening to our phone calls – watching everything we buy and where we go – watching everything we do. We are so far in debt that we are afraid to think about it let alone talk about it. Americans are not safe anywhere and we talk about our alies like France and Canada as if they were our enemies.
American has fallen and we look back to the good old days and think about how great Clinton was. And we want to read his book because we want to compare him to our present day loser and wonder – can we ever go back? What happened to the Man from Hope?
