Bill Clinton Has Issues

Okay, can we all agree that former President Bill Clinton is under a heap of stress? I think so. And, as with anybody, there's a breaking point. There's that moment in time when one can't take it anymore and one must "spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats."

Consequently, it's understandable that Clinton reached the breaking point in an interview with Fox News anchor Chris Wallace yesterday. Wallace asked a seemingly straightforward question about Clinton's efforts to kill Osama bin Laden and the stress-ridden former president let his temper flare. Reaching the breaking point is a character trait in everyone but the threshold varies considerably. Clinton seems to have been caught at a bad time, with a mountain of stress.

Fortunately, the release of raw emotion seemed contained during the years of his presidency. Presumably, the job was as stressful, finger on the nuclear button and all, as his current vocation but he seemed to be able to relieve that stress regularly and thereby not lose his temper and act irrationally.

Therefore, I suggest we all put Monica Lewinsky on our Christmas lists.
