Maybe All the Campaigners Should Learn B. Clinton’s Art of Napping

Just not on camera.

Bill Clinton caught catching some much needed Z’s during MLK Day observance. Can’t say I blame him; nothing like hearing King’s legacy drained of all complexity at great length by a wannabee to get one to nodding. It does bring home, though, how grueling our ridiculously expanded nomination/electoral process is. Maybe that’s why he’s been such a sphincter on the campaign trail. However dangerously vicious, homey is a senior citizen. I know I couldn’t handle the stress, not without killing someone.

BTW, must be said: the NYP’s headline rocks – Bill Clinton has a ‘Dream.’ Kudos.

Update: Video of Bill’s nap after the jump.
