    What a whiny baby. Talk about a sore loser. Hillary should have left him years ago.

    Slap his face.

    He's petty and getting awfully old looking these days – I have a friend his age who already has alzheimers. Too bad – happens sometimes.

    Like he needs to get real. His wife lost. But I think that she stayed with him all these years after Monica-Gate just because she wanted to be President. And now that it is a no go, I think that whatever deal they had between wife and husband has gone south. I probably went something like " Bill I will stick by you only so that I can get the Presidency, but so help me God if I don't, cause hell hath no fury like a woman scorned! I will make your life a living hell!!" So of course Bill is angry that Hilary didn't get the nod. Bill, welcome to the rest of your life!!!

    Fascinating... way to spend time and money pursuing important leads. We all appreciate it greatly. Where will he be eating dinner? Will he be having dessert? Will the Clintons be sharing a bed or are they in a double queen room?

    I'm so clad you're the Senior Political Correspondent. Otherwise we might learn about irrelevencies like health care, economic distress, the Iraq war, the credit crisis, or what any of the people speaking at the convention think about any of those issues.

    Is there some reason he should? Obama has made it more than abundantly clear that it's all about HIM.

    I'm sure he finds Clinton's absence entirely appropriate.

    ....he'll be off in a corner somewhere, pouting while the rest of America puts the Bill Clinton years behind them. Legacy over.

    If Bill Clinton cares anything about his real supporters like me, he'll understand that it is imperative that we come together. I was a Gore supporter, then Edwards supporter, now I'm an Obama supporter. The beauty of this process is that you take twists and turns and then you have the candidate that represents best what you stand for OVERALL, not necessarily on every fine point. Obama has been trained by the best- a primary against the Clintons. He will do an incredible job, and no more Bush-Cheney business!
