Something just occurred to me with respect to why liberals like Clinton, but not Bush. It goes beyond the scandals. Pick up anything you'd like -- Clinton lying to the public about Lewinsky, the questions about campaign fundraising, et cetera -- the fact is still that Clinton did the right things for the country. The economy was doing well. We were in peacetime. We had some significant steps towards counterterrorism.

Compare that to Bush who plunged us into the invasion of a sovereign state on poor intelligence, riding roughshod over allies of the US, passed the Patriot Act, restricted stem cell research, and run the army out of resources. It doesn't take a Russian missile fired into Georgia to show that this isn't right for the country. It doesn't take worldwide organized marches against your policies to show that this isn't right for the country. At what point do you realize you're going the wrong direction? When gas prices zip over the $3.00 a gallon range? When China zaps one of our spy satellites? When North Korea touches off a nuclear bomb?

We shouldn't have had to wait for that mushroom cloud to be the smoking gun of presidential incompetence, yet we have.
