Election ’02 Flash End of The Clinton Era


Remember a few months back when the buzz was about all the Clinton Administration alumni who were seeking office, how we were going to see some kind of referendum on the Clinton years in the wake of the “stolen” election? Reno and Reich never made it to the general election. Bowles lost. Richardson won, but he was a congressman before his service to Clinton, so he wasn’t particularly beholdent. A few other lower level Clinton admin. has-beens also lost. Yet Jeb Bush won handily, as did Catherine Harris, and the generally pro-GOP drift of the evening speaks for itself. Just wanted to do a little reality check on that “Clinton wing resurgent” thesis. And there is of course Clinton’s hand picked DNC chief Terry McAuliffe, whom I hope will continue in his job for years to come.
