    that's a harsh criticism of Clinton.  The way I look at the Clinton years as a guy with a good heart but in a different and more corporate time.  I mean we did take a brutal beating in 1994.

      so I saw the purging going on in almost every dept of government. Clinton passed the hateful welfare "reform" and NAFTA with GOP support and liberal/union opposition. After the "brutal beating" Clinton got even worse and instituted even more neo-liberal economic policies. He and his GOP allies gave Wall Street free rein which eventually led to the collapse under Bush.

      Clintons acceptance of "Reaganomics" and his hard turn to the right changed the democratic party for decades and we haven't overcome what he did yet. Read up on the "Democratic Leadership Conference" if you care to check out where he was coming from.

      America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity
