26. A HUGE stretch...
Democrats did not lose Congress because of NAFTA, Gun Control, or a lack of Media Reform. They did not lose because of any single issue, nor were the votes on those issues the result of corruption

They lost because they were long entrenched and had an air of corruption surrounding them (check cashing scandal, Jim Wright scandal etc. Combined with the new tactics of Gingrich and his ilk, and with the tepid and incompetent response of the Democrats in power, who believed they were untouchable...they lost.

Bill Clinton and his policies had almost nothing to do with losing the majority.
