I'm not counting my chickens till the hatch in January, but things are looking pretty good...
As for Clinton getting reamed by lawsuits - it won't happen, and I will tell you why, and why I agree.
The cases will be brought against him, and Bush wil pardon him. Why?
If the cases are brought, he will not be convicted - there are too many dirty hands here, and nobody will step up to the precident of hanging a former President.
So why is it good that Bush would pardon him? 2 reasons...
First, Bush would look like the good guy - and would put this whole mess behind the country for good. That makes him look like a kind person, and puts him in big favor with the general public (who still think Clinto is some kind of god).
Secondly - like I said, infortunately Clinton would likely be cleared of the charges, and he would yet again cry out "SEE! I have been vindicated!" an ever-lasting slap in the face of the rest of us who know otherwise.
No... IF Bush pardons him, the charges are left hanging there forever as an unresolved matter, something historians will be able to mull over and consider "what if" for eternity.
And Clinton gets SCREWED. Remember, his entire goal here is to re-write how history records his actions. So far he has managed to twist it all to his favor... And with a pardon, it is left there hanging and he can't do a thing about it... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
Think long term gratification over the short term punishment of Clinton and it makes this all the more sweet [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
