The Ultimate Humiliation

Poll: Clinton outperformed Bush

In a new poll comparing President Bush’s job performance with that of his predecessor, a strong majority of respondents said President Clinton outperformed Bush on a host of issues…

Respondents favored Clinton by greater than 2-to-1 margins when asked who did a better job at handling the economy (63 percent Clinton, 26 percent Bush) and solving the problems of ordinary Americans (62 percent Clinton, 25 percent Bush).

Oh, and the kicker:

Moreover, 59 percent said Bush has done more to divide the country, while only 27 percent said Clinton had.

What will be interesting is, presuming a similar sort of national feeling regarding Bush and Clinton in 2008 (big if, I grant), if the affection for randy ol’ Bill and the nostalgia for his presidency will do anything for Hilary if/when she runs for President in 2008. There are pluses and minuses, but, you know. Give Bill a campaign and he’s in his element.

Thoughts?

Whatever & Mac Firefox

Someone who reads the Whatever via the latest version of Firefox for the Mac says he’s having trouble bringing up the page on his browser over the last day or so. If you’re reading this on Mac, and have the latest version of Firefox, could you fire up Firefox and see if you have any problems? Specifically this problem:

It doesn’t load completely–it appears to stop loading about 25% of the way through–and it completely locks up any window it’s being loaded inside of. If The Whatever is loaded as one of several simultaneous tabbed windows, it becomes impossible to switch to any of the other tabs or close them individually. If a new “The Whatever” tab is added to a window already full of tabs, again, the whole window and all the tabs become frozen and unusable. The only thing that works is closing the whole window.

I view the Whatever through the latest version Firefox for Mac myself, and I’ve not noticed any problems, but if enough people are having a similar problem, I need to check out what it might be. Let me know. Thanks.

Update: I think the problem might have been related to the polls I had up. I’ve pulled them temporarily (i.e., until they fall off the front page), although I left links to where they can still be viewed. Those of you who noted a problem, let me know if that fixes it for you.
