http://www.cnn.com/2002/ALLPOLITICS/12/18/clinton.lott/index.html <i>Asked if Lott should be removed, Clinton said, "That's up to them, but I think they can't do it with a straight face." </i> Ok, my little mind is spinning after reading this article... I don't think Lott represents what it means to be a Republican, nor do his statements made on Thurmond's birthday reflect those of the entire party. I've also been a supporter of Clinton for a very long time - HOWEVER, I do think Clinton just stepped in a big pile of dog pew pew with this statement. Could he be using this to focus the stagelights on himself? I think so.
