He must be running, all the papers say so

Project for Excellence in Journalism | Clinton Finishes Third in Battle for Campaign Coverage (But it’s Bill!!!)
The man who would be First Spouse made more news last week than any Republican, or than the other Democratic contender, John Edwards.
Well, that sort of begs a question, to say that Bill Clinton "made news". What exactly did Mr Clinton do that was newsworthy? Stick his nose in the Presidential campaign? No, ex-Presidents have done that before. Say something unexpected? Not really.

Couldn't it be said that the mass media's news editors would rather cover Bill Clinton than any of the Republicans in the Presidential race? That they consider him more interesting than, say, Mitt Romney? Or than even the liberals' favorite Republican, John McCain?
