I saw a poll the other day that mentioned that Bubba Clinton still has a 70% approval rating. That made me think. Was he the most centrist President of our time? I heard Eisenhower was considered a Democrat to Democrats and a Republican to Republicans, so that must have made him a centrist. But since that time, was there a more centrist President than Clinton?
Many would argue that Newt Gingrich pushed him to the center. There’s a valid argument to be made there. Or maybe the combination of peace after the Cold War and economic prosperity makes him seem like a centrist.
I wonder if Clinton would have any success running in today’s polarized world.
Here is how US media works. 5% extremists on both sides is all you see on TV. In reality, 40% vote Republican, 40% vote Democrat, no matter what, and the winning candidate is the one who convinces a majority of the 20% undecided to vote for him. So yes, Clinton would win in a heartbeat. He is smart, handsome, charming, and does not come off as a privileged asshole. That makes him immediately better than Romney, Obama, McCain, Especially “I have a plan” Kerry the Chin and that dumbest motherlover of them all, Bush Junior.
Speaking of Kerry, he delivered a great line the other day:
“Ask Osama bin Laden if he’s better off than he was four years ago,”
Bill Clinton was the most loved US President by Chinese
Well, he did play the saxophone.
