    How are we defining "Better"? Very broad question you've got here. :)

    Clinton was better in some areas and Bush is better in less areas.

    Overall, I'd say Clinton.

    A broad question indeed. Clinton was definately the better politician. There are a million issues to compare the two but here are a couple.They were different presidents at different times in our history. Clinton governed when the economy was on the upswing and Bush governed when the economy was in recession. I give that one to Bush for cutting taxes and stimulating the economy.

    Unemployment was at record lows during the Clinton administration and while they initially went up during the Bush presidency they are well below 5% today. I call that one a tie.

    There was no war on terror during the Clinton administration (at least from our side) and while Bush has made some mistakes in handling post 911 foreign affairs, I cant help but think he was better than Clinton who wanted to handle terror issues as a crime instead of using military action.
