"No president obsessed over his 'legacy' as much as Bill Clinton did," observes the National Review Online. "He sometimes complained that he had no enormous national crisis to contend with, meaning that he didn't have a fair shot at attaining historic greatness. 'The first thing I had to start with was, you know, we don't have a war,' he told the New York Times in 1997. 'We don't have a depression, we don't have a Cold War.' Poor guy. He never really had a chance.

It's hard to respond with dignity when your pants are down around your ankles

He didn't have one."'
Yes he did, but it was not the one he wanted. Everyone remembers the finger wagging in their faces, I just wish he could remember MY finger response!
William Jefferson Compost is lower than whale dung. To even contemplate the notion of not being able to profit from the misfortunes of others is beyond sickening.

...lamenting that such a thing didn't happen on his watch.
As an American, he should be lamenting that it happened at all. The first 5 attacks (WTC, Saudi barracks, 2 embassies, USS Cole) were on his watch. It was his war to fight if he chose to. Fighting the scourge of terrorism could have provided him a legacy.

"He has said there has to be a defining moment in a presidency that really makes a great president. He didn't have one."'
Yeah and it's breakin' my heart. Clinton's administration was an 8-year string of narrowly avoided opportunites.

Clinton's "legacy" is still scattered over several blocks of Lower Manhattan. New Yorkers can SMELL it now.
BILL JUST G O A W A Y!!
Ironic then, isn't it, that Clinton was responsible for the national catastrophe that hurtled George W. Bush into that stratospheric level of popularity that he so desperately craved. Black Tuesday brought to you courtesy of William Jefferson Clinton.
Let me defend Willie. History will praise him for being so personally corrupt that he did far less damage to the country than he would have as a pure dogmatist. He is and always has been a leftist (he might also have been a Russion mole) and as President, could have done truly terrible things to the nation and its future. But, he was so intent on generating revenue streams and compliant females that he focused his attention on these activities. All in all, as filthy and corrupt as Willie was as president, he could have been so much worse. That is his only positive legacy.

Once a media whore, always a media whore. And leave it to the liberal media to always have a camera ready to follow him around. The cretin has no shame.

Drudge found a defining moment for Clinton. He shook his finger in our faces and lied, and lied and lied. He found his legacy.
