  •  C+, Not Quite! (none)
    I just ran the numbers from CES0000000001, calculating monthly percentage change for Clinton (starting with the Jan 1993-Feb 1993 as his first credited month) and Bush (Jan 2001-Feb 2001).

    Clinton had 24 months better than Bush's best month. Last month was Bush's 4th best month. Clinton had 52 better. That's 52 out of 96 better.

    So last month was at Clinton's 45th percentile.

    Even grading on the curve, that's no C+.
