Do the algebra

Charming Billy is at it again. This time former president Clinton was speaking to foreign dignitaries in Denver when he presented this oh-so-subtle hypothetical.

He said: “Suppose you’re a voter, and you’ve got candidate X and candidate Y. Candidate X agrees with you on everything, but you don’t think that candidate can deliver on anything at all. Candidate Y you agree with on about half the issues, but he can deliver. Which candidate are you going to vote for?

Then, perhaps mindful of how his off-the-cuff remarks might be taken, Clinton added after a pause: “This has nothing to do with what’s going on now.”

The comments are unlikely to be taken as an innocent mistake by those Democrats who continue to be angry with the former president for, they say, not supporting the Illinois senator wholeheartedly, if not implicitly undercutting him.

The controversial comments came just hours before Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.), the former first lady and principal rival to Obama, was due to speak from the convention podium.

Mmmph. That foot can’t taste very good Mr. Bill. Of course there is much trepidation in DNC circles over what Mr. Clinton will say tomorrow night as he speaks at the convention. But I’m more curious about Hillary’s speech tonight — especially if her sophomoric hubby can be seen in the background. Watch closely when she mentions party unity. Will he roll his eyes and sneer derisively? Or better yet will he turn around and moon the crowd in grand PUMA fashion? The possibilities are endless, folks. Get your TIVO ready, this should be a fun night…
