Reagan Vs. Clinton

I haven’t said anything about the whole Reagan miniseries controversy, largely because I didn’t think there was anything left to be said. But the news that CBS is pulling the show is really very interesting. I’m trying to think what a similar miniseries about Clinton could say about him which would result in a popular pro-Clinton backlash of a similar sort. Short of an all-out rape scene, I can’t think of anything. And even that would have less to do about the man’s honor than about what’s appropriate for broadcast television. I think this might give us a pretty good glimpse about what the future holds for the two men’s reputations.
