Bill Clinton Has Not Arrived in Unity

Monique Chartier

Senator Hillary Clinton and Senator Barack Obama ended campaign hostilities yesterday with a near embrace in Unity, New Hampshire. But Senator Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, is not feeling the vibe. From the Telegraph (UK); h/t NewsBusters.

The Telegraph has learned that the former president's rage is still so great that even loyal allies are shocked by his patronising attitude to Mr Obama, and believe that he risks damaging his own reputation by his intransigence.

A senior Democrat who worked for Mr Clinton has revealed that he recently told friends Mr Obama could "kiss my ass" in return for his support.

It has long been known that Mr Clinton is angry at the way his own reputation was tarnished during the primary battle when several of his comments were interpreted as racist.

But his lingering fury has shocked his friends. The Democrat told the Telegraph: "He's been angry for a while. But everyone thought he would get over it. He hasn't. I've spoken to a couple of people who he's been in contact with and he is mad as hell.

The former president's anger may be in part reaction to the way the younger Obama democrats won most of the battles like the decision about Michigan and Florida delegates. The Clintons were out fund raised and out maneuvered. His return to the White House and the spotlight has been taken away. The only thing funnier than this ex president's behavior is the thought of the next x being W.

Hey, maybe Hillary's willingness to campaign with Obama will do what Bill's extramarital shenanigans couldn't: provide a mother lode for divorce lawyers.
