An observation

Listening to political pundits on NPR yesterday, I heard on say that Bill Clinton’s attacks on Obama are troublesome.

The reason they were troubling was that Bill is being a loose cannon. Despite saying Hillary will be the decider, he definitely has his own opinions. The pundit pointed out that this could lead to a vocally divided White House.

I don’t think I’ll be voting for Hillary. (But I’m not really pleased with the mess of the Republican “front runners” right now so who knows!) I honestly believe that it’s time we had a female president. But I think Bill is a real liability.

Can you imagine if Laura Bush were speaking out against the excesses of the current administration, like warrantless wire tapping? As refreshing as that might be, it would be incredibly confusing for the country.

I sure hope Bill quiets down and becomes an asset for his wife.
