Former Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Alabama
Con to the question "Was Bill Clinton a Good President?"
"[Bill Clinton] was not a strong president; he was a popular one. Ask yourself, what did he get done? Was there any major legislation he was responsible for? Welfare reform came from the Republican Congress. Health care was a disaster. He simply didn't get much done. He was a comedy of errors. Everyone approves of what he's doing, but when you ask the question, no one can say anything he did."
"Soundbite: 18th Century Man," by Michael W. Lynch, Reason, Apr. 2001
