Longtime Washington Post reporter David Maraniss, author of several books on Bill Clinton, took to the Post op-ed page on Monday to plead for his subject. With Newt Gingrich on the rise, "Democrats have only one illogically rational response in this modern American political hall of mirrors. They should bring back Bill Clinton."
"Of course, the law prohibits the Comeback Kid from coming back to serve a third term, and Obama might not go for it, but only old-school twits would let any of that get in the way," wrote Maraniss. "The Constitution and its amendments are so 18th, 19th and 20th century. The notion of persuading good ol’ Joe Biden to step aside in favor of Hillary as vice president is not sufficiently grandiose when it comes to going after Gingrich."
