Hmmmm...I'm not sure where to go with this one. On one hand, yes, there was a Republican congress behind the bill that Clinton signed. However, he vetoed two earlier bills and it WAS his initiative. He also broke HARD with the liberal wing of the Democrats to sign this bill.

I really dislike uber-partisanship where extremists refuse to give ANY credit to the other guy simply because of the party letter behind his name.

And Clinton was NOT as evil as the right tries to portray him. He was a "New Democrat" part of the DLC, a group that the liberals HATED because they were too conservative.
