Thinner and frailer,

the Comeback Kid

puts heart into Kerry's campaign

 

Bill Clinton, the perennial Comeback Kid

of American politics, returned from his sick bed

to centre stage yesterday,

proving that his ailing, quadruply-bypassed heart

is still in the fight.

But it was a much thinner, frailer man

who took the stage

alongside John Kerry in Philadelphia's Love Park

than the vigorous leader who dominated

the last American decade.

He had come back from the brink of political death

many times, but this has been an narrow escape

of the real thing.
