You have to wonder just how many people have been photographed with Clinton over the years.  Guy shows up anyplace, everyone has a camera, lots of them are fans or just think it'd be fun to get a picture with him.  Probably has been in a couple hundred thousand photos.

And we act surprised when a couple of them are with people who turn out to be sex workers?  I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.

No.

After FDR died during his fourth term, an amendment was passed limiting a President to 10 years in office, which means two full terms and no more than two extra years served if a VP has to take office due to the President's death or resignation.

Clinton has already served his two terms, and probably isn't even be eligible to be VP, since if his running mate were to go all William Henry Harrison, Clinton could legally only serve two years and there would still be two years left on the term.

And as for ex-presidents running again... Yes.

Grover Cleveland won in 1884, lost to Benjamin Harrison in 1888, and came back to win in 1892.

Teddy Roosevelt left the Presidency in 1908, and ran again in 1912 as an independent, splitting the Republican vote between himself and William Howard Taft, which allowed Woodrow Wilson to win.

So, technically, Jimmy Carter or George H.W. Bush could run for office again, and be alloewd to serve another term if they won. But that would be it for them.

I find any discussion about character in today's political environment laughable.  Almost ever member of Congress in both houses gleefully sells out their constituencies for campaign cash.  Almost ever member of Congress would rather a CEO get 20 more bucks rather than making sure a struggling family can eat.  If these aren't character defects then I don't know what are.

Well, that's not technically true.

Clinton can't be elected President again.  But there's no block on him running for Vice President.  And if the President were to resign the day after she were inaugurated, there's no constitutional reason he couldn't take office for four years.  The amendment in question only applies to being elected President, not to holding office other than to block subsequent elections to the office of President.

Here's the relevant text:
No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once.

Since so many of us wistfully recall the 90s, I think Clinton often gets a free pass on some of mistakes he made. But even when you account for those, there's no denying that he presided over a decade of relative peace and prosperity. Many Republicans to this day will begrudgingly admit that Clinton managed "not to screw it up," which is a high compliment given today's political rhetoric.

And maybe I just admire Clinton because I'm a man, and in a poor display of stereotype have no choice but to admire such a masterful charmer. The whole "women want him, and men want to be him" thing.

Well, I never had to pee in a jar as a condition of working before Ronnie, and I'm not too fond of having to prove innocence as opposed to being considered innocent until proven guilty.

And yeah, the jar thing isn't a law, but it was his initiatives that made them SOP.

No silly.  Ronald Reagans increase in spending by putting non-violent drug offenders in jail for very long mandatory minimum sentences has proven to be a colossal failure.  The hundreds of billions wasted on his War on (some) Drugs (not alcohol or nicotine) did absolutely nothing to limit the supply of drugs in the last 30 years.   So there was no benefit at all from his worthless programs that increased spending.

Really Ron's biggest failure was tripling the national debt.  Lowering taxes on rich people while expanding military spending isn't a very prudent way to keep the books balanced.

/Of course, Dick Cheney famously said, "Ronald Reagan proved deficits don't matter".  Of course that only applies when a Republican is in charge.

It wasn't just women. I once talked to a guy who said he met Bill Clinton three times while he was governor. The first time, they talked for five minutes, tops. The second time, Clinton remembered the guy's name. The third time, Clinton remembered details about the guy's life. The dude was born to be a politician.

Did you know that you can still smoke weed and generally be a fully functional adult, but you can't be a fully functional adult if you view the world around you in absolutist "must be ideologically pure" lenses. This sort of foolishness is exactly why the GOP is eating its own tail trying to out-dirtbag all the other dirtbags.

You might also want to realize that liberalism/leftism is a starting point for ideas and not a blueprint on how to run a nation. Hell, this is true of all political philosophies.

Since so many of us wistfully recall the 90s, I think Clinton often gets a free pass on some of mistakes he made. But even when you account for those, there's no denying that he presided over a decade of relative peace and prosperity. Many Republicans to this day will begrudgingly admit that Clinton managed "not to screw it up," which is a high compliment given today's political rhetoric.

And maybe I just admire Clinton because I'm a man, and in a poor display of stereotype have no choice but to admire such a masterful charmer. The whole "women want him, and men want to be him" thing.

It wasn't just women. I once talked to a guy who said he met Bill Clinton three times while he was governor. The first time, they talked for five minutes, tops. The second time, Clinton remembered the guy's name. The third time, Clinton remembered details about the guy's life. The dude was born to be a politician.


First four paragraphs... I was still wondering, "Why?"
Last paragraph... now I know, "Why."

/Would vote for him again.
//Yes, he would make a great First Lady.

Crotchrocket Slim: FirstNationalBastard: DarkVader: FirstNationalBastard: Resident Muslim: fatassbastard: Ninetynine: Still my favorite president ever. Those were definitely the good 'ol days.

Mega-this.

Y'know what's funny?
If he ran again, he'd probably win.


/can ex-presidents run again (If not concurrent)?

No.

After FDR died during his fourth term, an amendment was passed limiting a President to 10 years in office, which means two full terms and no more than two extra years served if a VP has to take office due to the President's death or resignation.

Clinton has already served his two terms, and probably isn't even be eligible to be VP, since if his running mate were to go all William Henry Harrison, Clinton could legally only serve two years and there would still be two years left on the term.

Well, that's not technically true.

Clinton can't be elected President again.  But there's no block on him running for Vice President.  And if the President were to resign the day after she were inaugurated, there's no constitutional reason he couldn't take office for four years.  The amendment in question only applies to being elected President, not to holding office other than to block subsequent elections to the office of President.

Here's the relevant text:
No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once.

Hm.

I'm surprised they didn't close the VP loophole.

I've always understood that loophole to be closed but given the wording, I'm sure a legal mind as resourceful as Clinton's could get around it.


It's covered in the Twelve Amendment: "no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States."

In order to run for Vice President, you have to be qualified to run for President.  Since he's already served two terms, he's ineligible to run for president, therefore ineligible to run for president.

there's a city councilman here that has "that".  i ran into him just about a month ago after not talking to him for maybe, sheesh, 3-4 years, and he rattled off my first and last name, asked how my wife (by name) was doing, asked how her new job was working out, and if the kids were at the same school (by name).  i'm just some slapdick that votes, much less a person that donates or whatever to his campaign.

golden goat: They end the article hoping that "Hillary wins"?  If Hillary Clinton runs on the democratic ticket, we'll have a republican president, no matter the number of rape "gaffes".


Jesus... How did I read that as "rape giraffes"?? I can't even blame booze or lack of caffeine...

Exactly my experience with Mr. Clinton.  He even asked me about some work on my left knee that I had done between the second and third time we "chatted."
