It was only a matter of time.

The release of the two Americans being "held" by North Korea is a good, wonderful thing. Two of ours are now safe at home.

But it was only a matter of time (less than 24 hours to be exact) before critics of Bill Clinton would expound upon what he "traded" for these two women. Because Bill Clinton could not possibly do anything good, like get hostages released.

Oh please. For the red-blooded right wingers who believe in "patriotism" above all other virtues, it should not matter who gets our citizens back from harm's way. Regardless of what you think of people like Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, and even Jesse Jackson, they get hostages back. George Bush, bless his heart, is probably not going to be a diplomat or a negotiator in his post-presidential years. He's gonna be chillin in Texas. But that's neither here nor there.
