Pray for your enemies.
WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) _ President Bush on Friday wished Bill Clinton "best wishes for a swift and speedy recovery."
"He's is in our thoughts and prayers," Bush said at a campaign rally.
Bush's audience of thousands in West Allis, Wis., booed. Bush did nothing to stop them.
Sounds like compassionate conservatism is really catching on!
Update 9.4.04: Happily for civic life, and unhappily for journalistic credibility, it appears that the crowd did not in fact boo. Weekly Standard "galley slave" Jonathan Last is understandably indignant; Josh Marshall confirms that the AP got it wrong. Maybe somebody at the AP lost their cool and decided to get back at an Administration committed to mendacity.
