Clinton's role in Meek controversy no surprise given his 2010 election zeal

Clinton has been an indefatigable force during the 2010 midterm elections, stumping for dozens of candidates from coast to coast and playing a behind-the-scenes role that stirred controversy well before the Meek story broke Thursday.

He is by far the most popular Democrat making the rounds, certainly more than the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., who is more of a liability than an asset these days. (story here)
