    The President Clinton biography on PBS' "American Experience."

    Part one was last evening. Entertaining and informative.

    Interesting footnote that his first budget in 1993 that is credited for 22,000,000 jobs and the greatest period of prosperity in American history......really wasn't his choice.
    Some thoughts after viewing:

    1) Compromise is good.
    2) It is better to be lucky than good.
    3) Brilliant politician who more than anything wanted to stay in power. Right now we have an idealogue.

    They were not shy in saying everything short of "He got enough wool to knit a sweater."

    I found funny that they have the balls to show hillary as the grasping coat tail politician she is. :thup:

    Why did you stop there? Could it be you didn't want to expose Snooty Newtie's lie that he balanced the budget 4 years in a row???

    Great Rock n' Roll in 5/4 time.

    Happy and I'm smiling,
    walk a mile to drink your water.
    You know I'd love to love you,
    and above you there's no other.
    We'll go walking out
    while others shout of war's disaster.
    Oh, we won't give in,
    let's go living in the past.

    Once I used to join in
    every boy and girl was my friend.
    Now there's revolution, but they don't know
    what they're fighting.
    Let us close out eyes;
    outside their lives go on much faster.
    Oh, we won't give in,
    we'll keep living in the past.
