With the likelihood increasing of a 2008 showdown between presidential contenders Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., it will be interesting to watch how, or even whether, the public and pundits discuss a sorry incident that links the two. At a GOP Senate fundraiser in June 1998, McCain reportedly told this “joke”: “Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly? Because her father is Janet Reno.” (This was when Chelsea was a teenager.) McCain later apologized to President Clinton, then in the thick of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Apology or not, it says something about what McCain considers amusing, at least among Republicans.
