Soft, soft the lede in Mark Silva’s front page Chi Trib story about Bill Clinton:
Say this much for Bill Clinton. He doesn't walk quietly.
How nice. Quietly flows the darn puff piece.
Mr. November? Democrats count on Clinton for late-inning campaign magic
is the head.
His white-hot, finger-wagging interview on "Fox News Sunday"--filled with accusations about conservative bias and Bush administration blunders--has thrust Clinton into the midterm election campaign just as the Republicans appeared to be erasing some healthy Democratic advantages.
is to put a Democrat spin on it, to say the least, buying into the best light in which Clinton’s outburst can be put.
All in all, it’s a clear-cut thumbsucker, easy-going and casual, to which faithful readers will respond: Where the “analysis” tag? Wash bureau chief Tackett gets it, doesn’t his colleague/underling Silva deserve it for his soft, soft, shadow of those old-time Trib page-one cartoons?
