Hubba Bubba! Just One More Reason To Love Bill Clinton

The Ostroy Report

The Ostroy Report is a fresh, aggressive voice for Democrats and a watchdog of the Republican Party. While our mission is to support our new President Barack Obama and help build a greater Democratic majority in Congress, we're not afraid to criticize our own when warranted.

Republicans are downright miserable this week. Why? Because the man they hate so much, their arch-nemesis, the president they once tried to take down even through impeachment and still failed, Bill Clinton, has rubbed his mojo in their collective faces yet again. Riding into N. Korea on his white horse to rescue imprisoned journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee, His Royal Bubbaness could not have looked anymore like the uber-rock star that he is.

During a brief press conference after her and Lee's arrival back in the United States, Ling recounted how incredible it was to walk through a door and see the former president standing there, clearly indicating that they would finally be going home after three months in captivity.

Watching the clip of Ling's comments, MSNBC's Hardball host Chris Matthews expressed what I believe most Americans feel about Bill Clinton: "Wow..I was caught up in that emotionally. I mean, 'I walk into a room and there he is.' I guess, ya know, Regis Philbin coulda been there and she might have been just as happy, but I don't think so. I mean this seriously, there's something iconic about Big Bill Clinton....The guy is bigger than life." Amen.
