PBS is running the Clinton series. It’s a four hour documentary about Bill’s life from childhood to presidency. Out of four hours that spans about 40 years, there’s 40 minutes of Monica Lewinsky.
What’s with that, PBS? It’s old news. Let it be already. It’s not like Bill was the first president to enjoy the privileges of office with a young, star struck intern in the White House.
Do you see a PBS documentary on Jack Kennedy’s love life? How did Marilyn Monroe really die? Where’s investigative journalism when you really need it?
Barak Goodman (that name will haunt me forever) was the director and writer for the Clinton series and he says Bill’s White House years were an enduring conundrum.
Seriously? Conundrum, Goodman?
Bill was a much beloved president. And he’s a man. Where’s the conundrum? What’s hard to figure out about that combination?
There’s nothing difficult to figure out about a man who can wield power over a nation and nations, and over wide-eyed, teeny bopper girls who would be better served by keeping their lipstick on their lips.
What about Newt Gingrich? There’s as much about Newt in Clinton as there was about Newt in Reagan’s memoirs.
