    There's something to be said for compromise, both sides need to work on that.

    If the Clinton's and Bush's are going to keep running then we need to amend the order of succession to include relatives.

    Presidents sign or veto bills Congress writes (and fills with riders), often at the behest of lobbyists, and there was a news article that described why the veto pen is increasingly rarely used. Never mind that, if an opposing congress is filibuster-proof, then there's no point - would even a symbolic veto be seen in any way shape or form? It'd more likely lead to "more wasteful spending", "they're not cooperating", and other whiny lamentations.

    Besides, for decades we've had increasingly a free market, lower corporate tax rates, lesser union involvement, etc. Government shouldn't be meddling, not even giving out corporate welfare. Either way, corporate and top 1% profits are higher whereas worker pay continues to stagnate. There are few ways government can be justifiably blamed, it seems to be scapegoated far more often despite the obvious free market forces at work.

    Another Clintonian co-presidency will bring such middle-class benefits as the repeal of Glass-Steagall and NAFTA.

    As long as she gives him the power to create another bubble we can get this economy going... for a while.

    I'm pretty sure Bill Clinton's heart is not going to let him do that.

    Presidents don't create bubbles. The market does that.

    I thought "As long as she gives him the power to create another bubble" was clear. He didn't do jack for the economy before, it was an illusion.

    He did increase the amount of womanizers in the white house by one though, and Hillary followed him down his path.

    The only thing that would be revitalized would be Bill, taking a look at the Oval Office once again, and surmise, "Oh, my!" in George Takei eloquence.

    Right. It was that solidly Republican congress who is owed the most credit.

    ...so why aren't we enjoying yet another strong economy, considering we now have yet another very solidly Republican congress underneath yet another feckless Democrat president.
