I would compere this to the Carter era as much as Clinton. An overtly left wing takeover. In this case, a reaction to Bush, back then it was Nixon. The people will move back in our direction soon.
I go back much further. Within 2 years of Lyndon Johnson’s huge landslide victory over the great conservative hero of the time, Barry Goldwater, and the democrats huge gains in Congress, the democrats lost 48 seats in the the House and Johnson was curled up in a fetal position because he had lost the support of the American people and could hardly venture out publicly. Nixon, another pretend conservative republican, who received the overwhelming support of the conservatives was elected pretty overwhelmingly 4 years later. So proving that the democrats have this overwhelming tendency to move the country much further to the left that the country wants to go.
