I'm Cuckoo for Co-Presidents

I'm always surprised, well, not really, that Mrs. Clinton gets a pass for the mistakes of her first two terms as co-president:

As Bill and Hillary Clinton were campaigning in Iowa last week to put themselves back in the White House, a Democratic strategist warned their two-for-one strategy had trouble written all over it.

Dropping any pretense she is seeking the presidency in her own right, Hillary and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, campaigned arm in arm together in a Fourth of July swing through the first caucus state. The New York senator "embraced the role of virtual incumbent ... promising to restore conditions -- in the economy and in the government -- to the way they were during her husband's administration," the Washington Post's Anne Kornblut reported last week.

Jeez, doesn't the 22nd amendment kick in here somewhere?

Was Yeats "rough beast" the Billary? Though the He half is supposed to be pretty smooth.

Hey. Where's my apostrophe? "Yeats'" is how it's supposed to be I think. I'm not used to typing on my lap.

Well, I could riff on The Sopranos, the Clintons, Yeats and all that, but Hillary already beat me to it.
