The Hon. Ken Starr

I had the pleasure of hearing this gentleman speak at a breakfast meeting this morning, and while the forum wasn't one that lent itself to deep discussion or analysis, I was pleased that in response to questions about Executive power, the Dean did quote Federalist 78 more than once.

Of course, one soul did venture a question about Starr's role as independent Counsel, which pertained to the scope of his inquiry. Rather deftly, he replied that his scope was limited to the accusations of perjury and obstruction of justice.

Hearing Starr speak brought back all sorts of memories of the Clinton fiasco that was his presidency. Got a favorite? Let me hear it.

Ah, yes. That brings to mind an interesting point: The Clinton Legacy finally reached its ultimate conclusion last Sunday, and it was spoken as succinctly and completely by the one person that could have done it best, Clinton himself.

And it is this: "I failed, but at least I tried."

Ladies and gentlemen ... The President ... of the United States of America.

Samuel,

Oh, the anguish I experience when I think of the eight long years of Clinton we endured. What sticks with me most is the enormous number of lies. About everything.

It lessened the Office, didn't it?
