I read this report just now about President Clinton, as a stand in for President Obama, at the Gridiron Club's annual dinner.

Quite the comedian.

My thoughts turned to the 1990's and how much the conservatives and Republicans would vilify Clinton. I bought into some of that vitriol, but I've come to learn that what I really got was a facade.

Anyone willing to pay attention now a days to Mr. Clinton's goings on would have to admit that the man is interesting, accomplished, and self-deprecating.

Self-deprecating, I like that.

He showed a lot of respect to the elder Bush and was, considering the hyperbole then, quite mum during the term of the younger Bush.

It's all just a reminder that we sometimes take politics too seriously and misconstrue the other side. We sometimes forget that their opinions may differ from us, but in fact, usually, they have only the best intentions in mind.

Even Barrack Obama!

While the Limbaugh's, Hannity's, and Moore's of the airwaves excite us to anger at each other for siding with the Clinton's, Bush's, and Obama's, they all enjoy a nice dinner together, and a handsome stipend, at our expense.
