Stacy, in your universe did Bill Clinton lose a presidential election? In mine George H.W. Bush and Bob Dole got even lower percentages of the vote than Clinton — 37.5 percent and 41 percent, if I recall correctly. George W. Bush lost the popular vote in 2000 and won just 50.7 percent of the vote as an incumbent in wartime after 9/11 during a growing economy with low unemployment. But that still was plenty for two terms.
In 1994, the best election for both the right and the Republicans during the 1990s, the GOP was running against the Clintons’ tax increase, their big-government healthcare program, their gun-grabbing, their midnight basketball approach to crime, and their social liberalism. In 1992, 1996, and 1998 when the campaign focused on Bill Clinton’s character we lost. “Where is the outrage?” Bob Dole asked. The outrage was in that alternate universe where pointing out the fact that Clinton is a phony ever won an election.
