Rosa Prince, political correspondent for the Daily Mirror, enjoyed Bill Clinton’s recent Labour Conference appearance:
In a speech as powerful as it was persuasive, preacher-man Bill Clinton declared not just Britain needed the Labour Party in government – but the world …
In words that would not have been out of place in the Arkansas churches where he first learned the power of oratory, he thundered: “The great promise of progressive politics in the end is that we really do believe our common humanity is more important than our differences.”
At that moment he became warrior and missionary, his faith helping the poor, his battle-plan to end global injustice.
Since quitting the White House six years ago, Bill Clinton has dedicated himself to making the world a better place.
Er, OK. Clinton didn’t “quit” the White House (interesting, by the way, that he decided to become a force for good only after his presidency). Rock on, Rosa:
Almost chuckling with glee, he told how, when DNA was analysed, it showed 99.9 per cent of what makes us human turned out to be identical. How he gloried in this confirmation of his faith in the commonality of humanity.
He became an Arkansas preacher again [ed: again?] as he urged the crowd to concentrate not on the 0.1 per cent which was different but on what was the same.
No surprise, given certain skirt-based evidence, that Clinton is a DNA expert. His next point was to contradict his own idea of glorying in the commonality of humanity:
Clinton explained to the delegates that he needed a Labour Prime Minister in No 10 because only Labour shared his vision.
Never mind all the 99.9%-shared DNA. Concentrate on what is the same, Bill, not on differences!
And the world could not afford another mistake such as that by US Democrats which allowed a dangerous Republican president into the White House.
Republican DNA must be scary stuff.
