    What do you mean by "good"? I disagreed with many of his policies. Especially NAFTA and the embargo/bombing of Iraq.

    I think so, I would put him up there with Eisenhower, JFK and Reagan, that I have experienced in my life time as above average. Although he would rank below IKE and JFK, someday's I would have him third and someday's fourth. But above average compared to the others.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I disagreed with many things he did, and any one who does not disagree with every president on a fair number of things is a blind ideologue. However, I think he did a very good job of gettting most legislation right, he worked well with the other party, he was reportedly good at listening to other viewpoints and learning from them. Overall, a pretty good package.

    Sure he was bipartisan. But the whole Welfare for work, NAFTA (leading to off shoring of jobs, really kinda biting us in the ass), bombing of Sudan, whole Kosovo bombing of civilians, the Iraqi blockade which left millions of Iraqi citizens dead/dying. Sure he was bipartisan and all, but in the long run I wouldnt put him up there as a "good president".

    I was never a fan of Bill Clinton, but he did one thing masterfully... his handling of the economy. He did NOTHING. That's right, he did nothing. He was in the right place at the right time with the dot.com boom and he was actually smart enough to leave it alone, let it do its thing, and take all the credit.

    Sometimes good government isn't what you do, good government is what you don't do.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I thought he did pretty well especially in his second term.

    I agree he was above average but i believe Eisenhower towers above the rest. It seems when republicans talk about great republican presidents they immediately bring up Reagan. But I do not believe Reagan is anywhere near the stature of Eisenhower. Coming out of WWII Ike was a beloved American hero and had one advantage that subsequent presidents did not in having an united country. I doubt we will ever in our lifetime see another president Ike.

    I believe he was a better husband than he was president...
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.
