Bill Clinton Parses Words, Evades the Question, and Commits and Unforgivable Act of Political Betrayal

And God bless 'im, as Joe "Scranton Racist" Biden might say.

Is Barack Obama ready to be president?

It depends on the meaning of the word "ready.

Bill Clinton regrets some things he said - and didn't say - on the campaign trail. But one thing he still can't bring himself to utter: Barack Obama is ready to be President.

"You can argue that nobody is ready to be President, the former President told ABC.

"I certainly learned a lot about the job in the first year," Clinton said from Rwanda. "You can argue that even if you've been vice president for eight years, that no one can be fully ready for the pressures of the office."

That's probably not what the Obama campaign wanted to hear from the former commander in chief, whose role in Obama's election push and at the Democratic National Convention remains to be worked out.

It also could aggravate Obama supporters who were annoyed that Bill Clinton took what seemed to them too long to even have a conversation with the Illinois senator after he knocked Hillary Clinton from the race.

Look, I understand the position Bill Clinton is in. But it's kinda obvious to everyone he doesn't support Obama. Why not just say so, Bill? You're not exactly hiding your feelings on this matter. Why be cagey?

I mean, it's become a late-night joke.

Note that bitter now-unfunny has-been David Letterman doesn't bother knocking videos off YouTube. He needs the viewers.

PS, Chris Rock isn't funny either.
