Con to the question "Was Bill Clinton a Good President?"
"Clinton didn't, as he now claims, lead us 'to a new era of peace.' He inherited a hard-won peace, failed to lead, and part of his legacy is 9/11. It was understandable (if unfortunate) that in 1992, after the end of the Cold War, the American people would think they could afford a president who would fatuously think it enough to claim to be 'on the right side of history' (whatever that means), rather than being willing to make tough decisions."
