Finally, there is something that the Republicans don't want to pin on Bill Clinton: the saving of Kosovo.

Sgt. Awolski visited Albania and tried to have his "tear down this wall" moment, urging independence for the nearby Serbian province.

Hell, why not? Republicans have such a proud legacy of support for our military action there.

GWB himself was a resolute champion for it:

Bush, in Austin, criticized President Clinton's administration for not doing enough to enunciate a goal for the Kosovo military action and indicated the bombing campaign might not be a tough enough response. 'Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the president to explain to us what the exit strategy is,' Bush said."

Lest we forget, nothing good happened in the Clinton years, and everything bad from then on is his doing.

And fer gawdsake, let's not let him and his wife back in the White House, else they'll trash the place all over again. Thankfully, there is an answer: Laura Bush '08.
