clinton[Video below.] “He once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan, what does that mean? I’ll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from the hills and hollows from West Virginia. He was trying to get elected,” former President Bill Clinton said of Sen. Robert Byrd.”And maybe he did something he shouldn’t have done come and he spent the rest of his life making it up. And that’s what a good person does. There are no perfect people. There are certainly no perfect politicians,” he added.

  1. IOW in order to get elected you can do, say, or act anyway that you want and then absolve yourself at voting time.

  2. why is Clinton still running around like the spokes person for America, he was impeached anyone remember. Nixon was done after is was out. what a double stander.

  3. He ends off “there are certainly no perferct polititions” Coming from Clintons mouth thats the first thing he actually got right!

  4. No perfect poloticians, Yes Slick Willie lives up to his name once again. When is this horrible President gonna start fixing his mistakes? How I miss G.W. Bush
