High Broderism indeed -- pretty soon he'll be forgetting Matlock scripts too. Although I heard a touching news report recently that Broder had unexpectedly started a romance with Sandra Day O'Connor's husband.

November 9, 2007:

New York: Will you and the media ever apply as much scrutiny to the Giuliani marriages as you have done to the single Clinton marriage?

David S. Broder: I plan to leave both subjects alone.

Six Days Later:

Billary Burnout: The prospect of a two-headed Clinton monster as president could test the tolerance of the American people.

Put the former president into the picture -- however "sanitized" or insulated his role is supposed to be -- and the dimensions of the problem become even larger.

No one who has read or studied the large literature of memoirs and biographies of the Clintons and their circle can doubt the intimacy and the mutual dependence of their political and personal partnership.

No one can reasonably expect that partnership to end should Hillary Clinton be elected president. But the country must decide whether it is comfortable with such a sharing of the power and authority of the highest office in the land.

It is a difficult question for any of the Democratic rivals to raise. But it lingers, even if unasked

The balance of the article then centers around the Lou Dobbsian universe. The one that did so fucking poorly in the November 2007 elections.
