Durst: The Problem With Clinton

Durst says, "You know what Clinton's biggest problem is? No, I mean besides the fact that he looks like a Burger King manager who loves his work. His biggest problem is he's got no "or else." Either you vote the way he wants, or what? Or else he will... pepper you with a series of substantial arguments?"
You know what Clinton's biggest problem is? No, I mean besides the fact that he looks like a Burger King manager who loves his work. His biggest problem is he's got no "or else." Either you vote the way he wants, or what? Or else he will... pepper you with a series of substantial arguments? He does that to us all the time -- what the hell have we done wrong? Or else Hillary won't invite your mother to tea? Maybe Al Gore will cross the aisle and give a really stern look, all the while surreptitiously spreading a weird pollen-like substance causing an outbreak of many nasty cases of Dutch Elm Disease. Warren Christopher could suck the blood from especially recalcitrant committee chairmen. George Stephanopolous could be put in charge of the car pool. If that didn't work, he could always pull out the big guns and coerce some cooperation with menacing hints of a sacred vow from Jimmy Carter to personally campaign in the home district of anybody not on board the Presidential bandwagon. Maybe Bill just read Teddy Roosevelt's motto wrong: It's "walk softly and carry a big stick," Bill. That's big stick.
