"He was a greedy opportunist, doing favors for those that paid him well, and his only thing that kept his ass out of real trouble was that he was an extremely charismatic man."

That line says it all about the nature of your post. I'll just agree to disagree with you on that because beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it can be spun to look any which way we want it, considering which angle we're coming from.

Bill Clinton's accomplishments aren't spin, though. Just fact:

Longest economic expansion in American history

More than 22 million new jobs

Lowest crime rate in 26 years

100,000 more police for our streets

Enacted most sweeping gun safety legislation in a generation

Family and Medical Leave Act for 20 million Americans

Smallest welfare rolls in 32 years

Higher incomes at all levels

Lowest poverty rate in 20 years

Converted the largest budget deficit in American history to the largest surplus

Lowest government spending in three decades

Lowest federal income tax burden in 35 years
