iPol: The Other Clinton
Excerpted from this post at iPol
When he came into office 15 years ago, Bill Clinton was on a mission
to make his mark in history by reforming American government and
reinvigorate a languishing economy. Notable missteps on health care
and gays in the military contributed to a repudiation at the polls in
the 1994 congressional mid-terms, which seemed to refocus Clinton's
remarkable political skills. Bill Clinton presided over the longest
peacetime economic expansion in our nation's history, turned record
budget deficits into record surpluses, lifted millions of families out
of poverty, and stepped in to prevent genocide in the heart of Europe.
And then the mischief set in.
