Former President Bill Clinton will headline a fundraiser this month for John Delaney, the Democratic candidate running for Congress in Maryland's competitive 6th District. For Delaney, the visit couldn't be better timed. Clinton is riding a renewed wave of popularity among Democrats after his performance at his party's convention in Charlotte. The event will take place in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 16, The Sun has learned. Clinton endorsed Delaney in the primary in early March -- one of a series of announcements at that time that helped the Potomac businessman build momentum and ultimately shift from the underdog to the front-runner in the race against state Sen. Rob Garagiola.

Speaking at an event that was part fundraiser, part pep rally for Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's gubernatorial campaign, former President Bill Clinton on Tuesday defended the way the state handled the troubled roll out of its health insurance exchange -- an issue Brown's critics have attempted to use against him for months. "I admire the fact that when they had problems with the health care website, like the federal government did, they fixed them," Clinton, who endorsed Brown last month, told supporters who gathered at a Potomac conference center.

Democrats are beginning to panic as we speed toward the midterm elections. They have good reason to get nervous as they ponder the spectacle - so unlikely a year or so ago - of being reduced once again to a minority in the House of Representatives. The deservedly repudiated Republicans miraculously stand to benefit from the anger of the dispossessed middle class. These are indeed strange times. Baltimore's own native daughter, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, is unhappy that White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs blurted out a widely known truth Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" when he was asked whether House Democrats could lose their substantial majority and replied that that was entirely possible.

Despite the sneers of MSNBC hosts and the disdainful manner of White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, Benghazi matters. And it matters in ways we don't yet even understand - deep, fractious ways that reveal a major front in the culture war almost no one seems to understand or want to even talk about. The "blue news/red news" dichotomy that some have focused on is pretty obvious stuff. Fox thinks it's a big story, while MSNBC mocks Fox for thinking it's a big story. CNN isn't sure what it thinks about anything except the missing plane.

When Bill Clinton took the podium to address the country in January 1993, I was moved to tears. Here, then, was my first president. My parents had had all the presidents up to that point. Here was a man of my generation. Married to the working mother of a school-aged child who was his educational and professional equal. To someone like me. Mr. Clinton acknowledged the passing of the "greatest generation" when he thanked outgoing President George H.W. Bush for his 50 years of service to the country.

When it comes to sex, the media apply different standards to Republicans and Democrats. Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton allegedly trolled for women, using state troopers as his procurers. As president, mr. Clinton engaged in oral sex with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office. He lied about it under oath and was impeached, though later acquitted by the U.S. Senate. Other sexual accusations tainted Mr. Clinton. That "everybody lies about sex" and "it was just sex" and didn't affect his public responsibilities, were just two of the exculpatory statements from Mr. Clinton's Democratic defenders.

Remember the time Kevin Spacey and Bill Clinton rolled into the Starbucks near UB in Mount Vernon? Spacey told David Letterman last night that he was following the former president's motorcade when Clinton got a hankering for a coffee. "So we're driving through the streets of Baltimore with the Secret Service and police motorcade and he says, 'I want some coffee. I think there's a Starbucks up ahead,'" said Spacey, mimicking Clinton's gravelly drawl. Clinton was in town to give a speech at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.

Monica Lewinsky is back in the news, a clear harbinger of the country's imminent return to a political world dominated by the Clintons.   Writing in the upcoming issue of "Vanity Fair," Ms. Lewinsky declares that she wants to take control of her own narrative. "It's time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress," she says. "I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton. Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened. "   Ms. Lewinsky affirms that the affair that led to Bill Clinton's impeachment was consensual.

Kathleen Willey is back. For people who have forgotten, she is the former volunteer aide to President Bill Clinton who claims he sexually harassed her 20 years ago. She wrote a book about it called "Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton. " What, you say you didn't read it? Neither, it seems, did most of America, which long ago yawned at Bill Clinton's exploits and Hillary's apparent enabling of his extramarital liaisons. Ms. Willey is telling anyone who will listen that "Hillary Clinton is the real war on women" because of the way she treated her and the other women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual harassment.

Arsenio Hall returns to latenight TV tonight after almost two decades away. And, after all that time, he will still be one of only two African-American show hosts occupying that culturally influential space on a nightly basis. The other, comedian W. Kamau Bell, host of “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell,” launched last week in a Sunday-through-Thursday 11 p.m. time slot on the brand-new cable channel FXX. The diversity that Hall brings to the time period - simply with his presence in a syndicated show airing in 85 percent of the country - would be reason enough for rooting him on. But I have also long felt that Hall didn't get anywhere near the credit he deserved for opening up late night to younger viewers and some new voices on his show that ran from 1989 to 1994.

A striking contrast between the 1963 March on Washington and Wednesday's 50th anniversary celebration of it (and of Martin Luther King's historic "I have a dream" speech) was the visible unity and nonpartisanship of the first and the scarcity of both in the second. In the voices the other day of three Democratic presidents -- Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama -- and of not a single prominent Republican leader, past or present, the program seemed at times more a self-congratulatory Democratic rally.

The Obama re-election team must be in panic mode. The president is stuck in a virtual tie with Mitt Romney in some polls and behind him in others, so in desperation it has reached out to the Big Dog, Bill Clinton, for help. Mr. Clinton will speak next month at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., in a Wednesday night position often reserved for the vice presidential nominee. Presidents Obama and Clinton have not had the most cordial relationship, but when you're drowning, your feelings about the lifeguard matter less than his ability to keep you afloat.

"I think she's one of the most fascinating women of our time and this world," confessed Bob Greenblatt, the chairman of NBC, as part of his announcement that his network is making a miniseries about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, with Diane Lane in the starring role. Words are funny things. For instance, G.K. Chesterton once remarked that that the word "good" has many uses: "For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of 500 yards, I should call him a good shot but not necessarily a good man. " So it is, I suppose, with the word "fascinating.
