Clinton as Jesse Jackson?

DISCLAIMER: This is pure speculation on how the results were produced. I offer no proof that anything specific happened at the Clinton-Jong Il meeting, just that the whole scenario seems familiar and also suspicious.

Bill Clinton goes to rogue nation North Korea, and suddenly the imprisoned journalists are pardoned and freed by Kim Jong-Il. Where have we seen this before? It's from the Democrat playbook, the Jesse Jackson Chapter.
Jackson forayed to Yugoslavia--and to Syria, Cuba, and Iraq before that--without presidential or congressional approval. Foreign policy officials in Washington have protested publicly about all of Jackson's rescue missions. (Jackson's roving diplomacy rankled the Reagan and Bush administrations, but according to some reports, the Clinton administration quietly approved the latest one.)
Clinton, lifting a page from Jackson, did the same. The difference is that Clinton may have had tacit approval and something to offer. All of course, under the table. We'll never know for sure what's been said or promised. And certainly above board, nothing happened that involved the White House, where the former President's wife serves as Secretary of State.

"While this solely private mission to secure the release of two Americans is on the ground, we will have no comment," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said later in a statement from Washington. "We do not want to jeopardize the success of former President Clinton's mission."
But let's face it, how do the Democrats manage to do this over and over again while seemingly offering nothing in return other than the embarrassment of conservative Republicans? Jong Il is particularly petulant and while having had better relations with Clinton than his successors, surely wants to see the money.
