Bill Clinton's Nixon moment?

Monday, June 02, 2008 by Dave Winer.

A picture named nixon.jpgBill Clinton: "I want to say also that this may be the last day I'm ever involved in a campaign of this kind. I thought I was out of politics, 'til Hillary decided to run. But it has been, one of the greatest honors of my life to go around and campaign for her for president." Permalink to this paragraph

Richard Nixon: "For 16 years, ever since the Hiss case, you've had a lot of -- a lot of fun -- that you've had an opportunity to attack me and I think I've given as good as I've taken. But as I leave you I want you to know -- just think how much you're going to be missing. You won't have Nixon to kick around anymore, because, gentlemen, this is my last press conference." Permalink to this paragraph

Update: I think Marla Erwin nailed it. This means WJC won't be campaigning for Obama. Permalink to this paragraph
