SENSITIVITY: "Bill Clinton has been injecting himself into the news a lot lately, and it inevitably gives his critics a new opportunity to go through the case against him. . . . He wants to be the mellow, above-the-fray ex-president, but he really can't control the presentation. And now that he's shown how raw and angry he is about the criticisms, it's not going to get any easier."
Count me as one of those bored with Clinton criticism -- but surprised that he's restarting it now. So is Tom Maguire, who wonders why Clinton is saying and doing things that ensure that the runup to the 2006 elections will be filled with unflattering looks at the Clinton Administration's antiterror policies.
Tom Harkin isn't helping the Democrats either. I blame Karl Rove's mind-control rays. Democrats: Protect yourselves before it's too late!
UPDATE: More thoughts here. And a related post, here. Those Rovian mind-control rays are powerful stuff!
