SULLIVAN ON CLINTON….Andrew Sullivan notes that Perle and Wolfowitz and Cheney weren’t the only guys predicting an easy war. Bill Clinton also thought it would be a cakewalk:
“You’re looking at a couple weeks of bombing and then I’d be astonished if this campaign took more than a week. Astonished.”
I think this puts Andy in a terrible position. He’d like the war to go well so that his heroes are proven right, but that would mean that Clinton was right too. On the other hand, if it goes more than three weeks then reporters can all gang up on Clinton asking if he’s now astonished. But on the third hand…..
Hopefully the cognitive dissonance of the whole thing will be too much and his brain will explode.
