When former President Bill Clinton speaks I pay attention. I like him, his politics, and his amazing mind. Despite his playing around with other women and my sense of what this has done to Hillary Clinton as a woman, I like him.
Clinton, a few days ago, laughed off what former Vice President Dick Cheney's said about Hillary running for president again. During recent interviews promoting his new book "In My Time," Cheney suggested that Hillary Clinton should run for president in 2012, against Obama..
Cheney's remarks, Cheney selling his new book that defends the wrong things Cheney has done, are almost unbearable, but Bill's response was the response of a seasoned wise professional. He said:
"Well, you know, I'm very proud of her, so I'm always gratified whenever anyone says anything nice about her. And I very much agree that she's done a good job," Clinton told Bob Schieffer on CBS's "Face the Nation."
"But I also have a high regard for Vice President Cheney's political skills, and I think one of those great skills is sowing discord among the opposition. So I think he's right that she's done a heck of a job. But she is a member of this administration, and committed to doing it. And I think he, by saying something nice about her in the way that he did, knew that it might cause a little trouble," Clinton continued.
"I don't want to help him succeed in his political strategy. But I admire that he's still out there hitting the ball."
