Here is President Barack Obama greeting former President Bill Clinton prior to a memorial service for former House Speaker Tom Foley, D-Wash., at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., Oct. 29, 2013.

Look at the paternal body language of former president Bill Clinton, the man who’s still able to convey oodles of love to anyone he meets, man, woman, child, inanimate object. It’s stunning how much better Bill was at being president, even under the most injurious circumstances, than the guy on the left. The guy on the left is Mister Cool, scores a three-pointer on the first try, keeps calm in the face of danger – but has no idea how to love people.

And the people don’t love him back. I used to think it was all a Republican strategy to delegitimize him. But the GOP has been trying to delegitimize everyone who’s not them since the 1920s – it took a particularly emotionally unavailable president to make that GOP trick work so well.

I’ve been in favor of repealing the 22nd amendment for years now. If we didn’t have that thing, President Bill would be in his sixth term now and growing stronger. War in Iraq? What war in Iraq? National debt? In what country? We got them trillions of reserves. And every family owns one electric car and three iPads.

Oh, and Al Gore is still fighting global warming, except now it’s called climate alternatives.
