Oy, the way Bill Clinton raved....
Rants that made the Drudge parade
Journos like us, we had it made

Those were the days!

Boy you knew what you'd cover then...
Superdelegates and straw men...
Mister we could use a man like Harold Ickes again...

Rev. Wright laid the racial bait..
Seven hundred long debates...
Romney, Rudy, Huck ... too late.

Those were the days!
