Clinton: It's time to start swinging.

The GOP should be more ashamed of themselves than ever at this point. They're spinning the Libby indictment as being no big deal because there've been no charges of an underlying crime yet. That should sound familiar to anyone who remembers how Clinton wound up facing articles of impeachment. They seemed to think it was pretty serious then even when it didn't involve a war and thousands of American deaths.

Moving on, Clinton gave an address on the floor of the Texas House, and I hope DLC Democrats were paying attention.

"You can't say, 'Please don't be mean to me. Please let me win sometimes.' Give me a break here," Clinton said. "If you don't want to fight for the future and you can't figure out how to beat these people then find something else to do."
