    Interesting article, I particularly like this:

    What we will have to see is if he is half the Politician Bill Clinton is.

    Clintion took on the loss of congress in 1994 by basically taking the Republican Agenda, toning it down, and in the end claiming part of it as his own. I wonder if Obama has the political acumen to pull off the same thing.

    That's a myth.

    Clinton took his loss and stayed his "center left" course. He vigorously fought republicans who wanted to evicerate Medicare and in turn they shut down government and impeached him.

    Obama should grow a spine, stop this bi-partisan bullshit, take a lesson from President George W. Bush and start swinging that "executive order" sword.

    Bush lost BOTH houses..and that didn't stop him in the slightest.

    Yeah...

    That was one event. He refomed welfare which was a republican idea, as well as others.


    Presidency of Bill Clinton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Check the major legislation section. Yeesh, I try to give Clinton a compliment and just because you are a partisan hack you instantly assume its a criticism.

    Welfare reform was something he was talking about for a very long time. And early on in his administration he put up NAFTA...Poppa Bush's "idea".

    Liberals aren't that lockstep that they don't use ideas from the right, left, center..or mars, if they are good ideas.

    Hack.
