A Great Clinton Regret: Race Disparity (DEVLIN BARRETT, 4/11/06, AP)

Former President Clinton said Tuesday that one of his "great regrets" was failing to do more to bridge the economic and social gaps between white and black people in the United States.

Speaking to a black think tank, the former president offered a somber, sorrowful reflection on the end of his time in the White House and his failed effort to spark a national debate about race relations.

The current debate in the country over immigration, Clinton told the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, is further proof important racial problems have yet to be solved.


It's no coincidence that black Americans are more affluent than blacks in any other country. Just consider how two stories below flow into this one: Japan has only started growing its economy again after forsaking the quest for parity; and 401ks are dramatically boosting American savings. Democrats propose to imitate Japan. George Bush proposes to force all Americans into 401k type plans.

"...the former president offered a somber, sorrowful reflection on the end of his time in the White House..."

That time was spent selling pardons. Although he did pardon unrepentant Puerto Rican terrorists and a crooked rabbi for ethnic votes for his associate Hillary.

"...the former president offered a somber, sorrowful reflection on the end of his time in the White House..."
The usual leftist agenda of looking at every aspect of life through the filter of race, gender, and class in an effort to pull citizens apart by emphasizing their differecnces and not their similarities.

Did Bill have anything to say about his wife, who last appeared before a black audience and started talking jive? Does he think that is uplifting? Ennobling? Or just convenient?

And will he go to Orange County, NC and tell the black community that the Tawana strategy isn't going to work with a rookie DA and no Al Sharpton to roil the pot?

It's sad that our first black President wasn't able to do more for his people.
