Carol Platt Liebau: "Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton"?

"Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton"?

Here is a piece from The New York Times on the growing "closeness" between the Bushes and Clintons.

Doesn't bother me one way or the other. For those who are afraid it will somehow bolster Hillary's presidential chances, it's worth remembering -- how likely are the far-left wingnuts she needs to be impressed by a friendship with George W. "Evil Incarnate" Bush? And how likely is someone who otherwise despises Hillary to vote for her simply because her husband is friends with his predecessor and successor?

Seems to me that while the friendship may be good for the former President Clinton, it's not so good for the aspiring one. As the piece points out, it certainly doesn't prevent the RNC from pointing out the real problems of a Hillary Administration.

It's simply another ploy by Hillary to paint herself as a moderate. This isn't intended for either side's base. This is strictly intended for the uncommitted (uninterested?) middle.

She's hoping when it comes time to vote, non-political types will remember her as being friendly to Bush and, therefore, not necessarily mean or shrill.

It's all part of the window dressing.
