No redemption

Ken Starr now says he shouldn't have been involved in the Lewinsky investigation (link):

Starr said his role in a yearslong investigation of Clinton should have focused instead on Clinton's role in the failed Arkansas land deal known as Whitewater.

"There was a sense on the part of the country that my (Lewinsky) effort was an effort somehow to expand the (Whitewater) investigation, when it was separate," he told the Santa Barbara News-Press following a speech on Wednesday.

Gee, ya think?

Say, Ken, do you think the country might have gotten that impression from the fact that your original request to Janet Reno to take on the investigation specifically cited a connection between it and the Whitewater investigation (namely, the involvement of Vernon Jordon in both the Lewinsky matter and the allegation of possible witness tampering with respect to Whitewater witness Webster Hubell)?
