When it comes to Bill Clinton, some things never change. Today’s Washington Post lead editorial is a reminder that the Clinton Library opening today was paid for, in part, by former-wanted-fugitive-turned-pardoned-millionaire Marc Rich.
The library cost $165 million to build, and as the WaPo notes, “we still don’t know the sources of much of that money.”
If you haven’t read “Legacy” yet, this would be a good week to pick up a copy. The fact that President Clinton still can’t (or won’t) make a full disclosure of his actions while in office, and that his behavior has tainted even something as benign as a library, is the perfect memorial to his presidency.
