I don't disagree, although keep in mind that Clinton defeated HW for a 2nd term. From where I sit it sounded like sour grapes because Clinton deprived HW of something he was "entitled to".<quoted text>The Right would have simply found some othr reason to attack him if they didn't have that. If he was a Republican, the right would not have said a word about that.
The personal vilification started with Clinton. It looked a lot like he was targeted to be the last casualty of the Vietnam War. His womanizing provided an easy target but if that was the only issue I don't think the attacks would have been so viperous.
(I still think the biggest hypocrite on te impeachment committee was Henry Hyde. He of "youthful indiscretions" which wound up having him named in his mistress's divorce action.
