Clintons and old rockers

The year was 1992, and Bill Clinton had just received the Democratic nomination. The crowd was energized as Fleetwood Mac’s music flooded the convention center urging America, “Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow.”

Fleetwood Mac would roll over in their musical graves if they could hear how the Hillary campaign has gotten into a time warp, obsessing with the 90s while a new political generation demands a focus on tomorrow.

Suddenly, the Clintons have become old before our eyes. They are, as if by magic, now part of the past, no longer inevitable in the future. It took Obama and Huckabee to put them there, but they have become the couple that can’t stop thinking about yesterday.
