    Now that Slick Willie is transversing the country substituting for the much less popular (outside of inner city blacks) Barak Hussein, perhaps it's a good time to recall his infamy

    On September 9, 1998, Ken Starr delivered his 453-page report and 36 boxes of evidence to the House of Representatives, citing 11 impeachable offenses allegedly committed by the President

    Yes, and left office with a huge popularity ranking.

    Bombing Saddam increased his popularity.....regardless

    .... it won't hurt to reveiw his record as he attempts to pull the dems collective asses out of the fire a decade after being one of the only presidents to be aquitted on impeachment charges.

    Budget surplus, eight years of peace and prosperity. And the Conservatives hate him for it.

    Is it because their boys screw things up so badly that, by comparison, a perjury charge looms larger than a needless invasion of Iraq or throwing billions at Wall Street after letting them run wild?

    I can't see it.

    I can't see the reason for the disdain all these years later. Show me how the Right governs by comparison and check the result! Clinton's administration gave us a booming stock market, growth in the economy, employment statistics to be envied by any administration and peace.

    Bush took a budget surplus and turned it into a record deficit so fast economists reached for the Dramamine. He gave us two wars that have devolved into the longest wars in our history and left with the financial system in meltdown.

    The Clinton era begs nostalgia. The last administration will be regarded by history as one of our worst ever.
