jennyo showed me the Clinton video, which is one of the more awesome things ever, in spite of the Celine Dion song. I have a billion issues with a second Clinton presidency and yet there is a side of me that just loves the idea of a political ad that is so pomo, media-literate and savvy. A lot of the press comment seems not to be getting just how savvy it is - yes, doofuses, of course it will remind people of the various accusations of skullduggery against Bill and Hils, and the nothing that came of those. Saying 'oh look, we so are gangsters' is a way of mocking such claims. It can also be taken as a quiet promise that they have survived the worst their enemies can do to them and are still here; 'Forgive your enemies' said Bobby Kennedy to JFK, 'but keep a list of their names.'
