"Bernstein: Clintons Would Operate Joint Presidency"

From the NY Sun:
If Americans elect Senator Clinton as president next year, they will also be re-electing her husband, according to the author of a new biography of the former first lady.

Carl Bernstein, one of the reporters who broke the Watergate scandal which brought down President Nixon, told the Daily Telegraph that the couple would operate a joint presidency in which President Clinton would advise on policy and tactics as well as act as troubleshooter.

"There is no question in my mind it would be a co-presidency because he has better judgment than she does on most political matters. He would be a constant presence," Mr. Bernstein said.

And exactly how would this differ from the Bubba presidency? This confirms what the rest of us have already known: (1) the Clintons don't have a "marriage" as much as they have a "power-sharing partnership"; (2) Her Highness is NOT going to "be her own woman" in this campaign or in her (God in Heaven forbid) presidency, should we have the misfortune of experiencing it.
