Letter: Clinton's wisdom

Click to follow
Sir: As a direct result of its persecution of President Clinton, the Republican Party has lost not one, but two of its leaders.

It has got itself into a situation where two of the articles of impeachment recommended by its majority on the House Judiciary Committee were defeated with the help of its own Congress members. It seems the real story in the US is the self-immolation of the Republican Party.

As so often happens, hatred and bitterness have eaten away at those who perpetrate them. If Shakespeare were alive today he would already be sharpening his quill to dramatise the "split-screen" presidency, complete with the slaughter of the innocents in Iraq.
