Two Men 

Readers of this blog - or, rather, personal acquaintances who are sometimes forced to listen to me rant - know that I have a love-hate relationship with Bill Clinton. I will never really understand why Democrats regard his Presidency as a success, given that he did in two years what Ronald Reagan and George Bush could not do in twelve - namely, break four decades of Democratic control of the Senate.

Clinton is a political genius, but I'm not sure that he's a man with strong principles. Kerry, on the other hand, appears to be a man for whom some things actually are more important than being elected. Does anything capture the differences between these two men more than this story?
Clinton Advice Spurned. Looking for a way to pick up swing voters in the Red States, former President Bill Clinton, in a phone call with Kerry, urged the Senator to back local bans on gay marriage. Kerry respectfully listened, then told his aides, "I'm not going to ever do that."
It appears that Clinton was right politically. The inevitable march of history and progress will one day prove him to be wrong. Perhaps America isn't yet good enough for John Kerry.

Read the whole article. It's very interesting.
