When Will They Ever Learn?

They’re both flirting with Bill Clinton – and they’ll both pay for it -

Let me explain:

Within two days at the end of last week two news stories appeared: Clinton is on his way to Hong Kong this week to speak at a long-scheduled Fortune Magazine forum – for big bucks. In preparation for this trip, Clinton has been given a State Department China desk briefing

It is normal protocol for

However, in this case, the new Bush Administration should

Fresh off his phone call with Condy Rice, Clinton began talking to the press about how his trip was ‘semi-officially sanctioned’ by the Bush Administration – and how he would try to get our EP-3E plane back!

Bill Clinton is a life-long troublemaker

The new Bush Team should have not given Clinton anything to hang his hat on. Because somehow, some way he will cause trouble – and embarrassment.

And, just when Clinton is ‘down’ because of his messy exit from the White House and the Pardongate criminal inquiry, why do
