Mild mannered Fox anchor Chris Wallace somehow ignited an embarrassing public meltdown by former President Bill Clinton in an interview Sunday. Clinton, no doubt used to softball questions from democrat cheerleaders like Tim Russert, went postal when Wallace ventured to ask if Clinton had done enough to fight terrorism. I didn't realize how badly Clinton lost it until I heard excerpts of the interview. Big surprise, the mainstream media is softpedalling it, covering Clinton's rear as usual. We've known for a long time that Clinton is a vicious bully, particularly with women, and that he is often economical with the truth. The sheer paranoia and juvenile tantrum aspects of the display he put on with Wallace were startling however. It's frightening to think that this man was president for eight years and that his wife might worm her way back into the White House, with someone so obviously obsessed with score settling in tow. *************************** Following today's buzz generating conversation with Bill Clinton, Chris Wallace shared some of his post-interview thoughts with FishbowlDC: I was delighted to get the chance to interview former President Clinton. This was the first one-on-one sitdown he's ever given "Fox News Sunday" during our 10 years on the air. The groundrules were simple--15 minutes--to be divided evenly between questions about the Clinton Global Initiative and anything else I wanted to ask. I intended to keep to the groundrules. In fact--I prepared 10 questions--5 on the CGI and 5 on other issues. I began the interview with 2 questions about Mr. Clinton's commitment to humanitarian causes. His answers were cogent and good-humored. Then--I asked him about his Administration's record in fighting terror--fully intending to come back to CGI later (as indeed I did). I asked what I thought was a non-confrontational question about whether he could have done more to "connect the dots and really go after al Qaeda." I was utterly surprised by the tidal wave of details--emotion--and political attacks that followed. The President was clearly stung by any suggestion that he had not done everything he could to get bin Laden. He attacked right-wingers--accused me of a "conservative hit job"--and even spun a theory I still don't understand that somehow Fox was trying to cover up the fact that NewsCorp. chief Rupert Murdoch was supporting his Global Initiative. I still have no idea what set him off. Former President Clinton is a very big man. As he leaned forward--wagging his finger in my face--and then poking the notes I was holding--I felt as if a mountain was coming down in front of me. The President said I had a smirk. Actually--it was sheer wonder at what I was witnessing. I tried repeatedly to adhere to the ground rules--to move the President along--and back to the CGI. But he wanted to keep talking about his record fighting terror. When it became clear he wanted to throw out the ground rules--then I just went with the flow of the interview.
