[Ed. – He just wants to be loved. Is that so wrong?]
Maybe it’s because “Bubba” just doesn’t have the same je ne sais quoi as the “Gipper,” but Bill Clinton is apparently jealous of the reverence Republicans give former president Ronald Reagan.
According to the much-talked-about New York Times Magazine feature story on the world around Hillary, Bill and Chelsea Clinton, the former president is described as miffed that Democrats don’t treat him like Republicans do Reagan.
Amy Chozick reports: “People close to Bill Clinton have told me repeatedly that it irks them that Democrats don’t talk about the dignified, slimmed-down, silver-haired former president with the same reverence Republicans give Ronald Reagan.”
Her story, in Sunday’s newspaper, was released online early Friday.
She described tensions between those in Hillary Clinton’s orbit, and those in her husband’s. She also suggest that the former president is aware that his legacy could be impacted by his wife, and also that he hasn’t been cheerleading her potential run, according to insiders.
