Is this Clintonfreude? ...by Sybil Adelman Sage

With former presidents like this, you don't need enemies...is what the Obama campaign is likely to be muttering since Bill Clinton told ABC News, when asked if the PDC (presumptive Democratic candidate, Obama's current tag) is ready for the job: "You can argue that nobody is ready to be President." The Resentful Former President followed this with other conspicuously tempered, begrudging endorsements.

Might we suspect the RFP has a case of Clintonfreude? He's said to be more insecure than any other president, narcissistic with an overriding need to be liked. It's being theorized that he views Hillary's loss as a personal attack and Obama's star quality as diminishing his own charisma. And you don't even have to turn to Fox-TV for those assessments.

If Obama wins the election, he'd be well advised to have a team of dogs sniff the Oval office before moving in.
