Bill Clinton didn't quite stick to the party line today, first claiming (before later retracting) that briefly defaulting "might not be calamitous" for the economy, then telling Paul Ryan that he hopes the Democrats "don't use [their special election victory] as an excuse to do nothing on Medicare" and offering to chat with him about Medicare anytime.
