        Perhaps you've forgotten Larry Summers and the incredible unemployment underestimation.

        This administration jumped a gun with an ill-targetted "stimulus" package then went to the important task of burnishing its legacy on the backs of millions of people out of work, out of homes, and out of luck.

        Interesting, isn't it, that the current campaign talks about the danger of returning to a Bush economy, but manages to avoid comparisons with the Clinton economy?
