Re: Obama and Public Financing

Jim, we’re talking about the distance between perception and reality. Bill Clinton never won a popular vote majority, period. In six consecutive elections (1994-2004), Republicans won congressional majorities, their longest winning streak in decades. (The brief 2001-02 Democratic Senate interregnum was caused by Jim Jeffords jumping the fence in a fit of pique over dairy subsidies.)

There is thus no basis for your characterization of Clinton as an overwhelming electoral juggernaut who “repeatedly ate the right’s lunch at election time.” It is much more accurate to view Clinton as a divisive and polarizing figure who inspired the opposition to historic success.
