Bernstein: Clintons Would Operate Joint Presidency

To which WSJ's Best of the Web Today added this tag line:
But Only She Would Inhale

Anyway, the above mentioned Bernstein is Karl Bernstein who is quoted in The Sun via The Daily Telegraph with these observations on a possible Clinton co-presidency:

If Americans elect Senator Clinton as president next year, they will also be re-electing her husband, according to the author of a new biography of the former first lady.

Carl Bernstein, one of the reporters who broke the Watergate scandal which brought down President Nixon, told the Daily Telegraph that the couple would operate a joint presidency in which President Clinton would advise on policy and tactics as well as act as troubleshooter.

"There is no question in my mind it would be a co-presidency because he has better judgment than she does on most political matters. He would be a constant presence," Mr. Bernstein said.

On the campaign trail to win the Democrat Party's nomination, Mrs. Clinton has said she would use her husband as a global ambassador for America. But his real role would go much further, Mr. Bernstein believes.

I don't think it's that hard to believe. Why is it that Democrats are interested in bypassing the term limits?
