How many of plan on reading Bill Clinton's book?
« on: June 21, 2004, 01:03:17 PM »

I plan on reading Bill Clinton's autobiography My Life when it's available at the local library probably in the fall speaking as a non-partisan political watcher while I expect the hardcore Clinton fanatics in the Democratic Party to pick it up tomorrow or later this week with Clinton overshadowing John Kerry before the convention which isn't too smart politically speaking.  I expect it to sell millions of copies even though there's nothing new since he blames everybody else except himself for the scandals that erupted during his presidency in the 90's while I think Crazy From The Heat from David Lee Roth, Kiss & Makeup by Gene Simmons & Stone Alone by Bill Wyman(I wouldn't buy them) are a whole lot better but not taken as seriously by the media.

What the hell are you talking about.  You start off with a little Clinton bashing and end with Gene Simmons not being taken seriously by the media.  ?????
You think these books are better, but you wouldn't buy them.  And use the freaking period key.  If you say non-partisan political watcher again, ARGGHH.
you've said it enough, and what the hell is a "political watcher".  Sounds like a wannabe trainspotter or something.

The book looks interesting.......it's quite lengthy anyway.......I'm not a big enough Clinton fan to put down the money to buy it though.......maybe in the future, I'll give it a look.

Bullsh*t.

He quite candidly says he was wrong about the affair, about hurting his family and lying to everyone.  He repeatedly acknowledges his mistakes. 

Yes, he still blames Ken Starr because that bastard was like the Ashcrofts of today, misusing his power in a political vendetta.  He should have been brought up on charges IMO.

Personally I won't buy it but wait until it gets to the library, and if I'm in the mood I might check it out.  1,000 pages is a LOT of crap to slog thru.

That's no longer than the Lord of the Rings.  I'll probably read the book sometime.  I'm reading the Silmarillion again at the moment, so I'm not rushing out to buy it, but I'll get around to it sometime.

Not a bad idea.....and then you can give it to the library......steal from the rich Walden's....give to the poor, low funded government institutions.
