A Postscript

Today, I located the cartoon by my ex–college classmate that I mentioned yesterday, and I thought it would be appropriate to post it.

I discovered that my memory must have been playing tricks on me because it doesn't exactly call Bill Clinton the "Comeback Kid." What it actually says is, "Kid Comeback."

Oh, well, it't still a darn good cartoon. If you lived in Arkansas in those days, you know how dead–on those caricatures of Clinton and Frank White were.

And I still believe that cartoon inspired Clinton to call himself the Comeback Kid the night of the New Hampshire primary in 1992. After all, Michael Gauldin worked for Clinton for many years.

Thanks again, Mike, for the laughs ... and everything else.
