Keep believing that. Maybe one day it'll be true.
The good economic times of the 90s began when Bill Clinton sat down with Republican Fed chairman Alan Greenspan (who in a New Yorker interview several years ago said he thought Bush I was an economic lightweight who pandered to special interests too much to be concerned with the health of the economy)...and together they sketched out a plan for deficit reduction (a plan Clinton took massive flak for from the traditional pork eaters in his own party). The economic rebound from the recession of the early 90s began in earnest in late 93/early 94...long before the dot com 'bubble'.
In any case, I'm with Greg. The 90s were salad days for me, too. Clinton was president. No amount of Rush Limbaugh-Fox'News'-induced pychobabble will change that.

I agree with L-188, Clinton not only screwed up the economy for George W to handle, but he also almost ruined this country. In my opinion he was definatley one of if not the worst president we have ever had.
