I've never thought that either Clinton was anywhere near as smart as many writers have proclaimed them to be.I've never understood why so many people think that Bill Clinton is a brilliant speaker. To be effective one must achieve clarity of expression - by knowing how to present ideas forcefully, without confusion or unnecessary words, by choosing language suited to one's purpose. When have you ever heard Bill Clinton do that?He hectors, obfuscates, is vague, and tends toward the prejudicial rather than what is logical.Question for you, Dean Velvel:What's your take on G.W. Bush (and his father, for that matter) having received a degree from Yale and one from Harvard? I'd think that any graduate of either university must be appalled that such an apparently dim person could have earned a degree from either institution.
