Bill Clinton: Yeah, this is old stuff. Why rehash it? Because Sidney Blumenthal is about to. Howard Kurtz quotes from the preview of Sid's new memoir:
The Sid Blumenthal book on Bill Clinton is coming out, and the Salon excerpt includes this striking moment from the ex-president's second inaugural: "Chief Justice Rehnquist . . . had been chilly and inexpressive toward the president throughout the morning. He was grim while swearing in Clinton to his second term, with Hillary holding the Bible. Now Rehnquist turned to speak to him. 'Good luck,' he said. 'You'll need it.'

"'They're going to screw you on the Paula Jones case,' Hillary said."

Think this happened? Sounds like a Robert Reich situation to me (see here or here).
