This is rich…

According to a NY Times article on the new Clinton/Dole debates on “60 Minutes”:

When CBS announced that it had persuaded Mr. Clinton and Mr. Dole to joust…some conservatives complained that it was demeaning for a former president to appear regularly on a commercial television program.

It’s swell that conservatives are so concerned about Bill’s reputation, but c’mon…aren’t these the same people that dragged us through that whole Lewinsky thing? My money says they’re less concerned with presidential stature than they are with Clinton’s power of persuasion.
