Today’s Clinton Fun Fact

Bill Clinton was elected governor of Arkansas in 1978 at the age of 32. He lost his first bid for re-election in 1980, giving him the odd distinction of being the youngest governor and youngest ex-governor in American political history. Newsweek reports that after his surprising defeat, "Clinton sank into a deep funk. Wandering the streets of Little Rock, he’d stop to question strangers: "’Why do you think I lost?’" [The correct answer to that question is, "Because you’re the kind of guy who wanders the streets of Little Rock asking strangers, ’Why do you think I lost?’"]

It is a pleasure to see these people finally cut down to size.

That article doesn't say that people responded. If so, don't you just wonder what they told him?

I know what you mean, Mr. Voegeli, "the kind of guy....", but it seems to me that Bill Clinton needs to wander some streets asking that kind of question again. I can't help but agree with David Frisk's comment, though I could wish them cut down to something even more negligible. I have been dreading having to deal with these people as a life-long trial. But for pity's sake....
