  •  Clinton also won because of Perot. (none)
    Don't forget that Perot helped Clinton by dropping out at just the right time in 92 otherwise we might have had President Perot.  The Republicans helped elect Clinton in 96 by nominating Bob Dole and Dole picked Kemp who didn't want to go too negative which didn't help the R's either since negative is what they do best.

    I believe the biggest accomplishments of the DLC remain helping defeat Dukakis and the election of a Republican Congress.

      Please point to the proof.

      Clinton won because Clinton did a great job.  Stop echoing Republican talking points that downplay Clinton's extraordinary success.

      •  The Perot Factor.... (none)
        ...is pretty debateable and probably not provable, one way or another. From what I understand of Perot voters in '92, you had some conservatives who were upset with Bush for not being conservative enough, but you also had liberals and moderates who didn't like Clinton personally or disliked his views on free trade agreements.
