Hillary and Bill Clinton, along with moderator and longtime associate James Carville (right), greet the crowd Saturday evening at the Statehouse Convention Center in downtown Little Rock.

It's only on stage and in other dramatic works of fiction that Evil may appear in appropriate bright-red garb. That's when Old Ned is reduced to a cartoon figure that no one really fears. There he is, speaking with forked tongue and tail to match. Holding a pitchfork and breathing fire and brimstone, he could be a character in an amateur theatrical production of a comic strip, clattering into the spotlight on his cloven hooves. Not anyone in real life or realer death. How could anyone be afraid of the Big Bad Devil? Why, he's an almost lovable character, as clumsy as he is fictive. He might as well be a kid in a Halloween skit going Boo! Big devilish deal. The only response he may get is a barely stifled yawn.

The Clinton lovers aren't going to like this much.

Paul, i thought it was a little bit sad that the Clintons and their groupies came together in Little Rock recently to try to relive their glory days as an old high school football player would in trying to recoup his youth and the limelight one more time. How impotent they have become. thank the good lord. If Moses had met them there would have been another commandment.
