If you haven’t seen it, you haven’t had your TV on. Former President Bill Clinton spent some time with Chris Wallace of Fox New Sunday, and the subject quickly turned to his record with Bin Laden. The segment was taped last week and aired on Fox yesterday.
It was a premeditated attack ad. It was designed to get the highest number of viewers, and was the best free attack ad the Democratic Party has had for a long time, any way it is measured. It got plenty of build up last week and it is still running as this is written. And still free.
Clinton comes across as a strong man who was absolutely determined to kill Bin Laden, and who tried and failed, but gave it all he had. That was the word he used: kill.
