Arianna on Bill Clinton

Arianna's right:

All of Bill Clinton's tireless "bipartisanship" has been of no benefit to him, of no benefit to the country, and has only benefited George Bush and the right-wing.
The people who tried to hound him out of office haven't changed much, though they do now control both houses of Congress and the White House. Back then, he seemed to think fighting them was worthwhile. Now that he's got his back up again, maybe he'll rejoin the battle. Nov. 7 is only six and a half weeks away. And nothing less than oversight of the fanatics of the White House is at stake.
Indeed, the stakes are high, higher than any election I have witnessed in my lifetime. John Amato at Crooks and Liars summed up a power point:
[Clinton is] a terrific speaker and thinker with tremendous clout, but the time for diplomacy is over. This administration is incorporating torture into the fabric of our country and I think Chris Wallace’s partisan attempt to knock Bill has reminded him of just that.
I hope so 'cause our nation's future depends on the November elections. We need the all the big dogs we can summon.
