Bill Clinton impresses me, but he's never been a 'first choice', nor has (the valuable, talented, worthy) Hillary.
Yet what overwhelms me, what truly eclipses what people like to make of his ego, is:

Our statemanship has begun to show itself after 8 dismal, dangerous, stupid years. Why see it as a game to be scored?
