The Failed Clinton Presidency

I've long held the belief that Dems needed 3 consecutive terms in the executive branch to rebalance certain things that had gone a bit off kilter since the Nixon era. I stand by that, though I'm a bit less optimistic about how much that will ultimately help. The Blob, the Deep State, and various other bipartisany elements of the permanent floating Washington power class aren't going to budge too much. Still if the most we can hope for is to nudge things one way or another, better one way than the other.

And then there's Congress. I can't think of another election when I've heard less about the downballot races. Weird.
