The grand jury in Arkansas will not be indicting Hillary Rodham Clinton. Throughout our history, it has always been a joyful day at the White House whenever a first lady is not indicted.

- The mug shots, the handcuffing and the fingerprinting of first ladies has always been upsetting to witness. Who could forget the sight of Nancy Reagan being led into a police car with a coat over her head?- Before being dismissed, the desperate grand jury had to nail somebody, so it indicted Susan McDougal and Webb Hubbell - again. And for good measure, James McDougal, posthumously.

- This could be Ken Starr's brilliant new strategy, the only thing he hasn't tried yet - indicting dead people.
