85. "elitist?"
Seems to me that an "elitist" would be someone who so shamed his office by his own conduct that he was IMPEACHED. . .and while not convicted, doesn't have the moral foundation to NOT be out campaigning for his wife - and himself - to return to the Oval Office.

Obviously, Bill Clinton thought he was better than everyone else when he didn't consider his position or his marriage vows. Just like all of those Republicans in Congress, from David Vitter and Larry Craig, to Congressman Allen, privilege appararently breeds impropriety, especially when it is handed to those who feel their class makes them entitled.

It amazes me that Bill Clinton can even go out on the campaign trail, after the horrible embarassment of impeachment, and pretend that he doesn't play by a different set of rules.
