Writer Calvin Trillin provides a poem titled "A Democratic Delegate's Cheer for William Jefferson Clinton." The ex-president delighted his audience at the Democratic National Convention last night. His performance shows he's still a forceful speaker. But the memory of his foibles persists. Trillin's latest book is Obliviously On He Sails: The Bush Administration in Rhyme, published by Random House.
