That's a bit of spin, now isn't it.  It is ironic that he thoroughly trashed
and defunded one of the few arguably legitimate institutions of the Federal
government: the military.

Clinton was mostly harmless, primarily because he didn't do that much,
though his priorities were certainly questionable.  In the long run, he'll
be one of those many unmemorable Presidents that we've had.

Most of the politicians of the '90s were forgettable and uninteresting.
Actually, Newt Gingrich always intrigued me, but he got tossed by his own
party pretty early on.
