Quotes

Sidney Blumenthal: There was a sense among a certain social set in Washington, that Clinton was not their kind of person. He gave a little talk at a party that was given to welcome him to town when he was President Elect, and he noted that those who came to Washington weren't there to serve themselves, and shouldn't be.

Finally, the truth
7 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

After seeing this movie I feel even more certain that we should change the

constitution to allow Presidents to serve more than 2 terms. Clinton was the greatest President in my lifetime and I am Embarrassed for our country with

the recent election of Dubya. How could 58 million people be so DUMB! We

are hated and despised throughout the world. Our economy is in the tank and

over 1000 of our finest have died in an illegitimate war. When Clinton lied, no one died! His lie was about a personal failing. He was pushed into the

impeachment thing by right-wing zealots. If those idiots had been doing their job and not salivating over a sex scandal maybe the President could have

concentrated on more important things. I blame the right-wing congressmen

and Senators for the build up to 9/11.
