Because When You’re Seeking Advice on Damage Control After an Embarrassing Spill, Experience Matters

President Obama’s press conference is underway as I write this, but a little earlier today, he had lunch with somebody who may be able to serve as an example of what not to do in the area of comprehensive environmental cleanup.

Yell “plug the damn hole” and guess who comes running?

But before the presser, Obama will have lunch with someone who knows something about damage control.

Former President Clinton, whose affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky landed him in trouble with the law, Congress and his wife, might have a thing or two to tell Obama about how to handle a crisis.

Clinton ended up being impeached, but I imagine Obama might take that into account before fully implementing all of his advice.

“Oh, and one last thing Barack… if some of the oil gets on your girlfriend’s dress, pre-treat it immediately with corn starch, get it to the dry cleaners right away and don’t under any circumstances let her take it home.”
