Was Bill Clinton a Good President?

"William Jefferson Clinton, known as Bill Clinton, served as the 42nd President of the United States from Jan. 20, 1993 to Jan. 19, 2001.

His proponents contend that under his presidency the US enjoyed the lowest unemployment and inflation rates in recent history, high home ownership, low crime rates, and a budget surplus. They give him credit for eliminating the federal deficit and reforming welfare, despite being forced to deal with a Republican-controlled Congress.

His opponents say that Clinton cannot take credit for the economic prosperity experienced during his scandal-plagued presidency because it was the result of other factors. In fact, they blame his policies for the financial crisis that began in 2007. They point to his impeachment by Congress and his failure to pass universal health care coverage as further evidence that he was not a good president.  Furthermore, Clinton is thought to have partaken in unjustified/wrong-headed foreign policy.*"  -ProCon.org

If every president has their sin, his was surely lust.

That being said, he did a lot of good.

I'm not going to go into details but trust me, he was a good president.

Bill Clinton is a rapist and took advantage of his employees.

Side: No

Yes and no.

Clinton spent less than he took in. What a novel idea.

He then sold us out, out of greed, to China and other foreign agents. (Chinagate) He pulled the pin on the grenade and handed it to America as he was heading out the door, thus we have all of these "destroy America" trade agreements that sent jobs and companies out of America. And...this allowed him and his wife to start a global, criminal enterprise called the "Clinton Foundation", that was basically a pay for play scheme that sold American politics to the highest foreign bidders. That's how you become worth hundreds of millions of dollars on government wages...

I have plenty of issues with Clinton, but none of them beat his signature on Gramm-Leach-Bliley.
