In response to Somerby, I didn't mean to suggest that Broder himself had been upset by Clinton's attorney firings - I didn't actually go back and check - was just referring to the general prevailing attitude in Washington that Clinton wasn't entitled to do what presidents are actually entitled to do. I threw out Broder's name because his "he trashed the place" comment encapsulated the attitude of establishment Washington fairly well, though that doesn't mean he personally endorsed every permutation of that attitude.
