What Year is it Again?

Deja vu all over again. At least that seems to be the case if you've watched the news lately. Is it 2007, or 1994?

O.J. is back in the 24 hour news foreground after alledgedly attempting to steal back some of his memorabilia at gunpoint.

Meanwhile, Hillary's pushing her soon-to-be-irrelevant national healthcare plan again. I think I've seen this before.

This time around, Bill is the potential first gentleman, and O.J. isn't charged for murder.

But, the headlines and aura are essentially the same.

The 24 hour news stations are again clamoring almost non-stop over both stories. It is ironic, though that, again, much of the nation is looking to a Clinton to "restore" the White House, and take it back from a Bush. Simultaneously, the 24 hour news networks arguably haven't had as juicy a celebrity story since the debate over the infamous Glove.

I guess the more things change, the more they stay the same.
