Writer's Block: A few good men

Which U.S. President has made the most positive impact?

In my lifetime, the Clintons (one cannot, should not, deny Hilary's role in the administration). Their track record isn't spotless--NAFTA sure as hell came round to bite us in the ass--but they left a legacy that commands more respect than derision, with or without that stupid blowjob staring us all in the face.

What hurts more than anything, though, is the future that died with John F. Kennedy. I didn't get born until fourteen years after his assassination, yet I swear I miss him as much as anyone who was there to witness it.

And where can I find a biography of Teddy Roosevelt? That guy was bad to the ass.

Yes...
But we should separate Hillary from Bills misgivings because she has her own duties and what happened with that blowjob has nothing to do with Hillary's track record. Bill is gone and has become a part of American history good or bad..

If Hillary still has ambitions of serving the people in the future by running for the position, I doubt people will even talk about the "BJ Case."

My respects to Ms Hillary Clinton for standing where she is right now and keeping the family values intact despite the world's eyes and mouths running at full speed.

Re: Yes...
True, but I think you may have misunderstood me a little: Bill's extracurricular sex life is between him and his wife; I just meant that his role in the Clinton administration should be judged on its own merits, and it's a real bummer that the first thing people's brains go to is that Monicagate bullshit.

Re: Yes...
Oh I understood you quite well and I don't actually dispute your statements.

I was trying to sorta add on to your ideas but it all came out wrong the way it was presented.

I apologize, but I should have made it clearer instead of just blabbing right on...

Written conversations sometimes can get lost in translation..If we were actually conversing, you would have understood I was agreeing with you! My mistake, once again!

*Cheers*

Here you go.

This book is absolutely wonderful and David McCullough is a brilliant writer. I have read all his books.
