‘What Does Bill Clinton Want?’ …
What is Bill Clinton doing? Or to put it another way, What does the man want? It isn’t only Americans that are asking these questions. In this op-ed from Austria’s Die Presse, columnist Eve Male writes, ‘He supports his wife, but with his rude demeanor he pees on her leg. What does Bill want? Is he simply trying too hard to compensate Hillary for staying with him during the Lewinsky affair?’

The constant presence of Bill Clinton on his wife Hillary’s election campaign will not serve her. On the contrary.
On her election campaign, Bill Clinton has taken on the role of attack dog. He barks and bites – journalists as well as voters. It seems apparent that someone abandoned his leash. This is not a duel between leading Democratic candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. After all, the Clintons have always come as a pair; they are not called the double-headed monster for nothing. Should the former First Lady should actually make it to the White House, she will take her husband there also. But how many presidents does the country need?
Although the former president is still popular, his permanent presence may yet prove a hindrance for Hillary. Many Americans have had enough of the Clinton era. Moth-eaten and already tried.
When Bill takes center stage, words still come much easier to his lips than to Hillary. He supports his wife, but with his rude demeanor he pees on her leg. What does Bill want? Is he simply trying too hard to compensate Hillary for staying with him during the Lewinsky affair?
