yes or no?
Presidents don't have a huge influence on the economy. The Fed is independent, and the Congress is incharge of taxes and regulation. Plus the late 90s boom was the culmination of nearly 15 years of public and private investment in the computer sciences finally coming to maturity. Clinton wasn't responsible for it in any way; however, I think he deserves credit for not doing anything to screw the boom up.
Can't add much to what Conley said. Can't think of much Clinton did to boost the economy, but he didn't do anything to destroy it either.
