HRC's husband is apparently super-close buddies with GWHB.
If OB was the mudslinging type, he could point THAT out.

9. TERRIBLY worrisome ...
Bill lost some MAJOR points with me when he started hanging out with Poppy. Smacks of opportunism ... not attractive. You'd NEVER see Jimmy Carter hanging out with that crowd.

11. Agree. I suspect GHWB helped B Clinton out when he was getting slammed by
a lot of Republicans who had been backers of GHWB. Great irony. It is almost like (my opinion only) GHWB and K Starr were playing Good Cop/Bad Cop on Clinton.

I think GHWB was the ultimate evil CIA guy and his cover has never been completely blown.

40. The truth is Clinton let GHWB off the hook for Iran-Contra AND BCCI
Edited on Sat Dec-15-07 03:45 PM by Dems Will Win
He should have imprisoned him for both but did not.

The Clintons cannot be trusted. Look what we got for that bad decision! Dubya!!!!

7. Nothing new here.
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 04:09 PM by mac56
This was discussed to death, and the dead horse given a vigorous beating, at least a year ago here on DU.

No. Big. Deal.

They're two of the three members of the Living Former Presidents Club. Naturally they'll strike up a friendship. I would too if I were in that position, and so would you. Not surprising in the least. Any candidate who tries to make hay out of this will just look foolish.

Nothing to see here. Move along, move along.

8. The candidate who points out to Dem audiences that Bush2 never would've happened
but for a Dem president sweeping under the rug all the outstanding matters of Poppy Bush's illegal operations that continued to come up throughout the 90s and this country must open the books on all of those operations that led this nation straight into a 9-11 and this Iraq war - that candidate would immediately become my choice for president.

Truth Matters to THIS Democrat.

Open Government accountable to the people matters to THIS Democrat.

30. Jimmy Carter had a very close relationship with Gerald Ford..
after both had left office. The Ex-President's club is a very exclusive, close and personal one, if the personalities mesh.

13. Is this yet another attempt to attack HRC through WJC?
If so, you need to pay close attention to Rush Limbaugh. He is a master of suggesting guilt-by-association, and has long experience attacking Hillary and Bill by attacking those they hobnob with.

Big Dog has what some see as a problem, in that he wants so much to get good things done, that he will associate -- even cooperate, even socialize -- with otherwise disagreeable people in order to get their help. He is also a model Christian, in that he seems always to forgive, never to bear grudges, and never says anything cruel or untrue about a political enemy.

Clinton believes that he can do great good for the world if he works with GHW Bush. A lesser person would refuse to even speak to a man who had attacked him so nastily, but Clinton seems to be bigger than that.

Maybe he is being a GOOD example, not a bad one.

And so maybe he makes HRC look GOOD, not bad.

20. Just how is that?
GHWB is not president any more. What great works is Bill going to get done through him?

The same sort of great works that Bush gets working with prince Bandar?

21. Maybe Bill & George are not that different politically?
I have always thought that Bill Clinton was a Repug LITE. After he lost the Gov. job he came back a more experienced & learned how to play the game. He is still playing the game. He is the Master Triangulator.

29. I think it's more of a personal relationship than a political one..
honestly I think it's one of mutual respect. I don't think it has anything to do with ideology.

25. C'mon! Didn't you read the memo?!
This week, anything with the last name "Clinton" is BAD BAD BAD.

Soon it'll be someone else's turn in the barrel.

Honestly, I don't know why we keep putting all those memos out if not all of you read them.

36. Clinton is an elder statesman now
He's expected to do nonpartisan good things with the other former presidents. If Clinton still bashed GHWB he'd look childish.

17. I'm convinced that all Clinton ever wanted out of the presidency
was the chance to rub elbows with the "elite" like GHWB and the opportunity to line his pockets like they do. It appears as though he is getting a crumb or two thrown his way.

of course it may all be thrown back in HRC's face by the very people Bill is sucking up to.

18. super close buddies?
I doubt it. But they've raised a lot of money for disaster victims together. I guess a lot of DUers would prefer that Clinton snub Bush I instead of raising tens of millions of dollars.

22. K&R -- IMO-Too close for confort....
HRC seems pretty close buddies to LieBerman, Bush and the PNAC neo-cons Looks like she even voted for the Kyl-LieBerman Bill... Hmmm... Looks to me like her departure from real Americans is complete. It scares me ... :scared:

I think GHWB actually admires and respects Bill Clinton more than any of his own sons.

31. Me too...
I think it may have been they had something in common that brought them together. Fear... fear that Jr. was out of control. And the public showing of their friendship was to send Jr. a message... which he promptly missed completely.

You don't have to be best friends with someone and share all of their views to have a meeting of the minds and a genuine admiration for each other. It's called being a mature adult.

33. I think GHWB sees Bill Clinton as somebody..
who actually worked his way from the literal bottom to the literal top and was deserving of it, as opposed to his sons who were handed everything they had because they were Pierce/Bush's. He respects that.

34. Sounds right...
Too bad GHWB didn't learn that lesson while Jr. was still in diapers. The world might be a much better place right now.
