I hope Lisa Ling didn't have to "put out" to Bill to get him involved in her sister's case.

What they don't tell you is that a whole lot of people working in the background did all the hard work to secure their release. Bill took all the glory because Kim wanted someone who was important to make his own standing in the world seem more important. Kim turned down a Governor, and Kerry because he wanted a president. So he got Bill! I guess Obama was busy.

Love it that Bill is finally getting the respect he deserves. Some may be convinced he's a charming hillbilly, but the guy is a rhode scholar and his mind is like a steel trap. He is a bad ass, on par intellectually with the best of them but also has charm and wit for mile. Not many men as brilliant as himself also have winning, captivating personalities. The man has got it all and has used it all for the betterment of this country. Go Bill!!! (Thumbs up to Hillary too!)

Don't believe the hype    

Firefly, your'e the only one who knows what their talking about. Clinton has always been a glory-hound. This was no different. Many people were involved but in typical Clinton fashion he stood center stage when it was all said and done. Typical

13. Again all of you A-Holes miss the Point!!!!!
This Piece of Crap went to NK and made a Deal for the Skanks!!!!!
NK is $elling Nukes to Iran, Hezbolah, Hamas, & anyone else who's Looking for Them!!!!!
Japan, South Korea, have Citizens Locked Up in NK Prison Camps.....Why did he Not Ask
for Their Release Also?.......The U. S. has Said to it's Allies FU*K YOU
Oh......There is Much More to This Deal.....WAKE UP.....SH*T for BRAINS!!!!!!!!!!!

No YOU miss the point! Clinton was the only president who has gotten close to deals with N.K. to dispose of all nukes and make peace. Who is better to send and talk about that then Clinton?? Bush ?? Hell no! And so far from what I've read the NK leader had good reasons to keep these "Prisoners". The reporters were thought to be a sort of "terrorist". If we thought they were terrorist here would we not arrest them and put them on trial?? So shut the F*ck up unless you have all the d*mn facts!

Bill Clinton is a media whore.
Iran will be playing their current hostage situation for verything they can get now and other thugs will be kidnapping Americans.
He's encouraged bad behavior by rewarding N. Korea with a photo opp.

Bill did a good job as a citizen and as a favor to Al Gore.
I would buy him a Big Mac.

whatever    

Why is there so much compassion for those two idiots that wandered into a country where they knew if they were caught they would be arrested and punnished. I find it funny that the US does not negotiate for the release of prisoners of war but they will negotiate for two morons that knowingly went to a communist country for some story nobody would have given a rats a$$ about.
