A truly bizarre last line from George Will’s otherwise totally phoned-in Friday column:

Assuming, not rashly, that Barack Obama wins, 2016 is the next time Hillary Clinton, who will then be 68, can seek the Democratic nomination. By then, the median age of the electorate will be 47, so for many millions of voters, Bill Clinton’s tenure will seem only slightly less distant than Grover Cleveland’s, the last Democratic presidency that did not make sensible citizens wince.

Of all the things to sneak into the end of a column, an FDR jibe? And it’s good to see he’s taking the Grover Cleveland line straight off of the McCain campaign’s blast telegram.
