  •  Flameout is a little (none)
    harsh if one were to compare to the bookends of the Clinton Administration. What we are going to see happen to the chimpy show over the next few months will be a flameout,if it isn't already.

    it tastes like burning...

    •  I suppose I could argue both sides of this. (none)
      Flameout, yes or no? It was not the main point of the diary, so i may have tried to sum up 8 years in one word. It's probably not possible to be accurate. But i don't think you can sugar-coat the era, either. They were under siege in that white house and there's no question but that they pissed off the press right out of the gate and that did not serve them well.

      For what it's worth, this is not intended to be a slight or a slam of the Clinton administration.

      •  There is (none)
        no doubt more could have been acheived without the distractions. Its hard to sucinctly define the Clinton years. Promise and disappointment and whole lot in between.While having good relations with the press is of course vital,being too close is not good for the rest of us.
