Soon this will all be over

My original and main reason for supporting Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton, when no one else was remaining, was the expectation that Clintons would damage the party, though at the time I was thinking more of the further selling out to oligarchs, which Hillary Clinton was in the process of doing, and not of race-baiting sore-loserhood in team with Richard Mellon Scaife, which she ended up doing. (I was going to mention Faux News after Scaife, but then I remembered that Rupert Murdoch was already one of the oligarchs that had purchased Hillary Clinton’s presidential services.)

Surprisingly, it turns out that Bill Clinton actually has been advertising his own contributions to the destruction of the Democratic Party:

Idaho Dems miffed at Bill Clinton's comments

Idaho Democrats sounded off Wednesday against former President Bill Clinton and his campaign comments about Gem State politics.

Clinton, while campaigning in Indiana for his wife, Sen. Hillary Clinton, was quoted in national media as saying she would "bag" No Child Left Behind laws.

"Every time I say this, it's a guaranteed applause line," he said. "You can drop me in the middle of Idaho where there's not a Democrat in 200 miles and an elk would applaud me on that."

Idaho Democrats called Clinton's comments an insult. They said the state party is making a comeback - after suffering setbacks during Clinton's two terms in office.

"If Bill Clinton had done for elk in Idaho everything he did for Democrats, we'd have far fewer elk," said Idaho Democratic Party Chairman Keith Roark - an uncommitted superdelegate - Wednesday morning....

Mind you, I figure Bill doesn’t realize how badly he has blown his post-presidential stature, or how precarious was his reputation within the post-DLC Democratic Party.
