"I ask that all Americans demonstrate in their personal and public lives... the high ethical standards that are essential to good character and to the continued success of our Nation."
--President Bill Clinton, October 17, 1997. "National Character Counts Week."
Also, don't forget the legacies of Haiti, letting Osama grow and attack without response, the "middle east peace" at any price to Israel, etc...
To ascribe Clinton's shortcomings in office to character flaws has now become the common wisdom, but falls well short of explaining what he was about.
I too was a sixties lefty, I sat around with other radicals dreaming of the day when we could place one of our own in the White House, one who would promptly proceed to dismantle the hated "military industrial complex". I got a real job, realized the wrongheadedness that this America hatred represented, and Bill Clinton never did either.
Everything Clinton did was ideologically driven, not the result of his admittedly numerous character flaws. He was about power first, and the reduction of American power through various means second. Even his embrace of NAFTA served both ends nicely, as it ingratiated him to business, enabled him to put out the "for sale" sign to them, and resulted in huge contributions from big business in the runup to his '96 campaign.
Had this guy had more time, and a little less opposition, business would have been completely complicit in what would have been his eventual neutering of American capitalism.
