Is Clinton a rock star? – Understanding search results

Grumpy Librarian writes “For an example of someone not understaning what their search results mean, here’s a quote in the Washington Post’s Media Notes:

Well, Mr. Kurtz, this doesn’t tell us much, as an article that says “Former President Bill Clinton and rock star Bruce Springsteen are among thousands of celebrities campaigning this week…” would be included in your results.

I bet you’d find a bunch searching on Bush AND “Red Sox Pitcher” but not many people believe Bush will be taking the mound.”
