Back on topic.
The fact that Newt was the leading advocate for impeachment shows how politically demented the whole Clinton fiasco truly was.
However, knowing what we know now. It likely would have been better if Bill Clinton had resigned. It would have improved Al Gore's chances of winning the 2000 election as sitting President with a budget surplus. We know he won the popular vote and there is little reason to think he would not have received a few more uncontested votes in Florida.
Who knows what may or may not have happened in relation to 9/11, but we do know Gore didn't have a hard on like GWB and Cheney to invade Iraq and create a second unfunded war. A war costing untold thousands of lives to be needlessly lost on both sides and driving up the federal deficit.
The reality is most Presidents seem to be too full of themselves (except ol' Jimmy C.who still had lust in his heart) and have cheated outside their marriages. I don't condone it and I wish it didn't happen, if for no other reason than the eight year disaster that was GWB would have never occurred had Bill been able to keep it in his pants.
