  •  The best thing Bill Clinton ever did (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    was to refrain from standing in the way of Newt Gingrich and the Republican House while they shut down the government in 1995-1996.  Regular folks were furious, appalled and disgusted with the Republican party.  At every step in negotiations and every time Clinton vetoed a Republican bill, he came out and explained to the public what was happening, what the Republicans were trying to do, and why he was vetoing each bill.  The Republicans' duplicitous shenanigans and Clinton's explanations of their effects contributed to a large degree to the president's re-election in spite of his personal problems.

    "In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican." - H. L. Mencken
