The Clintons are polarizing figures

I have begun to see that the Clintons are polarizing figures—that is, they actively polarize. It isn’t simply that some people don’t like them.

Now, I wish more Democrats would polarize the distinction between them and ‘Republicans’, but within the party they shouldn’t stray too far from party unity. This is especially true of an ex-president and probably ought to extend also to his spouse. In 2004, Bill Clinton played his role well. But now, in 2008, with Hillary running for president and facing serious competition, the Clintons are emptying their bag of polarizing techniques and dumping them on the party, going back at least as far as acting in bad faith by not removing her name from the ballot in Michigan, no doubt planning ahead to take those delegates and run with them.
