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.
rev, I never said Clinton was evil, he was just a horn dog. My point was you lauded praise on him for "welfare reform" , I just wanted to point out that it was the Republicans in the senate that made it possible. Never would've happened if it'd been a Democratic congress. PS: I'm becoming less and less partisan cause I'm smelling shit on both sides of the aisle, but I will call 'em like I see 'em.
