Liked it Clyde. I am reading a book at the moment about the enmity between the Clintons and the Barracks. Written before the last Democratic Convention where Bill nominated Obama. Sort of! It will be interesting to see if what the author proposes will happen prior to 2016. Up the Democrats in more ways than one.
