It's Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Bill Clinton is set to publish My Life (talk about the ultimate in Narcissus titles), his memoir of "both his career in public service and his life." I wonder if this will be any more interesting (read: titillating) than Hillary's bowl of super-sanitized oatmeal, Living History.

Maybe yes, because Bill always did have the tendency toward grossly inappropriate behavior.

Maybe no, because that harpy he isn't really married to anymore will no doubt have vetted the manuscript.

At any rate, it will likely be the beach read of the year. More from the AP story:

Timing and luck have kept some of the more eloquent leaders from telling their stories. Four early, literary presidents — Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and John and John Quincy Adams — never published full-length memoirs largely because it was considered in poor taste to dwell on one's accomplishments.
No danger of that here.
