Say what you will about Team Smirk, but they are as good as any at changing the subject:
Bill Clinton claims that he warned President George Bush before he took office that the biggest threat to national security was Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda, in a sensational passage from his memoirs revealed for the first time yesterday.

Mr Clinton also speaks frankly in the book about the Lewinsky affair, calling it "the darkest part of my inner life", and even thanks his enemies’ pursuit of him for bringing him and his wife, Hillary, back together.

The details - culled from the first leaked copy of his memoirs - reveal that Mr Clinton has pulled no punches in his account of his presidency, even when it is he on the receiving end.

In the passage on his al-Qaeda warning, when Mr Bush was president-elect, Mr Clinton claims Mr Bush said little in response, and then switched subjects.
