53. But what do you say to the Republicans I've heard who DID call Bill Clinton a Republican?
Is anyone left of Bill Clinton an "extremist"? Because in my mind, Bill Clinton's actions--well, some of them--were very Republican in their underpinnings. He admits that he is a fiscal conservative and his deregulatory policies in the areas of telecommunications and the mortgage and lending industries are partly responsible for the mess that we are in. Not to mention the fact that he often defended George Bush's war in Iraq, which most Americans now oppose. So do all those Americans who oppose the war...are they "extremists"?

Is anyone who isn't a pro-corporate DLCer an "extremist"?
