The ex-president made the comment in a television interview when he was asked about one of the signature moments of the Monica Lewinsky affair over a decade ago. Back then, first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton used the term "vast, right-wing conspiracy" to describe how her husband's political enemies were out to destroy his presidency.The beauty about political "change" is, if we wait long enough, it changes back.
Bill Clinton was asked on NBC's "Meet the Press" whether the conspiracy is still there. He replied: "You bet. Sure it is. It's not as strong as it was because America has changed demographically. But it's as virulent as it was."
Clinton said that this time around, the focus is on Obama and "their agenda seems to be wanting him to fail."
Why does it have to be a conspiracy?
Why can't it just be a country where people disagree about the trajectory of the culture and where we exchange ideas and lobby for those ideas in the public square?
If the liberals don't like the invention of the boogeyman, they ought not use the strategy.
