Everyone will still be talking today about Bill Clinton's performance on "Fox News Sunday," when he went off on host Chris Wallace for "doing Fox's bidding" and performing a "conservative hit job" (with a "smirk" on this face, no less) by pressing him about why he didn't do more about Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida. It certainly made for riveting TV. The Washington Post points out that Wallace is not usually considered part of the Fox "network's conservative commentariat," while Jake Tapper suggests that there actually didn't seem to be huge Republican opposition to Clinton when he went after bin Laden in 1998. Arianna Huffington, meanwhile, has little pity for Clinton, claiming he sort of had it coming: "The bipartisan love-in he's been engaged in over the last several years has resulted in jack-squat."
