Think I've gotta add Impromptus to the blogroll. Always a good read. Today he comes to us with the second installment of a diary from Davos. He spends a good deal of time discussing Clinton's speech (as we know, all righties are obsessed with Clinton) and notes,

Clinton was very, very impressive ... and well worth listening to.
Yep, the right, especially the right-wing media like National Review are complete, unreconstructed Clinton haters. But I digress. The point which really struck me was the point that
Self-flagellation is a favorite sport here, and sometimes the Annual Meeting threatens to devolve into a Guiltfest. (I should say that self-flagellation is the sport of successful Westerners; the flagellation of others is the sport of yet others!)
Anyway, the whole thing is worth reading. Good stuff. Also mentions Obasanjo (although for me to expect Samson to read this blog is extreme wishful thinking...)
