Clinton did not endorse the man who became president in 2000 (although he did pick the winner), so I wouldn't put quite so much stock in his endorsement.

Fine, brass ring for Democrats, then. Sheesh. :)

PS: I really should add a link to the Constitution in the reference section anyway...

"...don't the trees look like crucified thieves...."

Something like that. Damn he was good. I worked with him briefly, and there's always the risk that a hero won't stand up to that kind of scrutiny. But he was funny, whip-smart, and most of all, kind. I wish I'd got to know him better.

"Damn he was good."

Yeah.

(pause)

I think that it'd probably be better if I didn't write blogposts while listening to him anymore. I'm usually a happy-go-lucky sort, after all...

The Carter endorsement will certainly have an effect, some of it negative, from the right who viewed him as a well meaning but ineffectual president, some of it positive from older (read anecdotal) Democrats who have a deep and abiding respect for the man but who could not stand Bill Clinton or bring themselves to vote for him or his vice president (rightly or wrongly, and it was not a point of argumentation*). Since one of them fought in WW2 and they were deeply patriotic, they felt they had to vote, however. Being retired they lived in Florida...

And they weren't no greenies.

* They're my freaking grandparents, you don't argue with their political viewpoints, you nod politely as you are dragged ten minutes away to specifically go to an Arby's because someone mentioned in passing that they liked Arby's Fresh Market Sandwiches. God bless 'em, may they see a Bushless White House. (Democratic successor or not)

"Damn he was good."

I haven't been able to bring myself to listen to it yet. How is it?

Good. The booklet that came with can make you sad, though.
