Parallel Universe Thought Experiment

Here's a little Wednesday morning exercise. First, follow this link to Americablog, where you will find a clip of Laura Bush being interviewed. In this interview the First Lady talks about how she and the President are suffering because of the war in Iraq - "no one" is suffering as much as they are.

Ok, now that you're back, let's consider what Atrios wrote this morning:
Consider, if you will, a parallel universe in which Bill Clinton presided over a deeply unpopular war in Iraq which was increasingly opposed by members of the Republican party. Thousands of US troops had died, and many thousands more had life-altering injuries. And, then, First Lady Hillary Clinton said, on a popular morning show, that over the course of the war no one had suffered more then she and her husband had.
What would be Rush Limbaugh's reaction? How about Bill O'Reilly? For that matter, what would be the reaction of those great liberal bastions like The New York Times or The Washington Post?

How would you react to it?
