Classy man

Bill Clinton shows again why we love him: "Aboard Air Force One on the way to Italy earlier this week, Clinton said John Paul was 'like all of us - he may have a mixed legacy,' pointing to controversy over the pope's efforts to centralize church authority in the Vatican, to tamp down 'liberation theology' movements, to promote conservative doctrine and to oppose discussion of female or married priests. "

"Like all of us." Does everyone have a mixed legacy? Gandhi? Albert Schweitzer? Mother Teresa?

It's not a stretch to suggest President Clinton is thinking of his own administration's record. So like him. Every question put to him in the end becomes a question about him.
