Gosh....Bill Clinton was THE man. He was higher than the Almighty himself!
I mean let's face it. He is the most loved, powerful, and smartest human in history. He could've walked on water if he wanted to.
This is what I would love to see:
G.W. Bush thrown out, and Clinton brought back and made "permanent" leader of the US, until he resigns.
Disband the GOP party, and rename the Democratic party simply "The Peoples Party of Clinton".
Every monetary demoniation, paper and coin changed to where they only had Bill Clintons portrait on it.
Washington DC renamed "Clintontown"
Reagan National Airport renamed "Clinton National Airport"
The Washington Monument renamed the Clinton Monument
Arkansas, California, or New York. Rename one of them The State of Clinton.
Bill Clintons Birthday, inauguration day made National Holidays.
Change the national Symbol from that of a bald eagle to that of a portrait of Bill Clinton.
All of those involved with the impeachment of Clinton, and the Whitewater affair be brought up on felony charges for attemping to blasphemize a National Figure as important as Bill Clinton.
The "Pledge of Allegiance" be re-worded to be the "Pledge to Clinton".
The years of 1993-2001 be officially titled for all history books, "The Age of Clinton".
Anyone who dares speak negatively about our hero Bill is intolerant, bigoted, and ignorant. Either an immediate political conversion, or public execution will be in order.

Matt D way overboard on this one especially referring that Bill C. is better than Almighty God. I keep a list of posters I do not read anymore, because of stupid remarks like this, Matt D is now number three on it!

Hell, George Bush has an airport named after him, and he didn't do anything. Reagan has an airport, and he fired air traffic controllers. I think Clinton at least deserves an airport.
One thing I've noticed is that the last decent republican president was Eisenhower. After that, the democrats have had to fix all of the problems that republican administrations left. Clinton spend 8 years clearing up all of the crap left from Reagan.

This "4/20" thing.... I dont get it. Are you celebrating Hitler's Birthday? Because 4/20 is Hitler's Birthday.
From reading some responses to Matt D's post, some of you dont get it that Matt D is being SARCASTIC. He is just mimicing the behavior of most of the "Cult of Clinton" followers who are members of this forum.

I know the primary purpose of the Internet is to piss off one another, but we should not assume that every post is intended to accomplish that task. I suspect that this was intended to be one of those rare non-inflamatory posts. In his own satirical manner, Matt points out one of the primary challenges facing the Democratic Party: how to denounce the failings of your party's most popular recent president while still embracing his accomplishments. It is a problem many of us in the Republican Party face with Ronald Reagan. While he was directly responsible for pulling us out of the Carter recession and causing the fall of the Soviet Union, he also failed to control spending which led to massive deficits. In addition, he sold arms to Iran in contravention of American law and diverted the proceeds to the Nicaraguan Contras in violation of yet another law. While I am convinced that his motives were good (opposing Communism in Central America while promoting moderate opposition parties in Iran), his methods were, ultimately, illegal. We as Republicans must be willing to accept this.
At the same time, Democrats must be willing to accept Clinton's failures while embracing his strengths. He presided over the longest and largest economic expansion in American history (while we may argue about who caused it, it cannot be disputed that Clinton did nothing to screw it up--no small feat). In addition, he took important steps such as reforming welfare and reducing the deficit. But just as Republicans must recognize Reagan's missteps, so too must Democrats recognize Clinton's. Clinton was the first president in 130 years to be impeached--not for having an affair with a woman 4 years older than his daughter, and not as a result of a vast right-wing conspiracy. He was impeached for committing perjury in a deposition during the course of a federal lawsuit in which he was charged with gender discrimination (hostile work environment and quid pro quo sexual harassment) in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. He governed not through adherence to promises or ideology, but rather through the application of public opinion polls. He may have accepted bribes in which the quo was the pardon of America's greatest tax cheat ever. Most importantly, he engaged in campaign finance abuses which have greatly weakened the confidence of the American public in the integrity of our democratic system.
Democrats must come to grips with these and other failures of the past administration. The more they deny them, the more Democrats will be marginalized by a public that recognizes these failures while happily accepting the bounty of a good economy. Matt D, while satarizing Democrats who apologize for every Clinton failure (he was only lying about sex, everybody accepts money from the Chinese, and the rest), cleaverly demonstrates the repulsion that the majority of Americans feel when they hear these ridiculous excuses. Good show, Matt!

I did see a rather large blow up penis being swung out of a fraternity window this weekend. Until now, I didn't think they were political.
I guess they were just showing their appreciation for a great leader! I'm glad that everyone thinks that Bill is a great leader. All hail Bill Clinton! May he live long and prosper.
Too bad we're not going to have President Hillary Clinton. I was looking forward to a President who puts her needs below those of her people. A selfless person is the first quality I look for when I go to the voting booth!
- Neil Harrison
: President Hillary Clinton? Yeah right - never. On the other hand, Bill Clinton deserves more appreciation for his work despite his morality problems.
: A clarification on my last post... I think that giant blow up penis was from the gift shop at the Clinton memorial. - Neil Harrison
: you guys do realize that either MattD is joking or someone got a hold of his password and is typing stuff in his name, right?
: shouldn't go around renaming perfectly named airports after half-rate presidents Ahem....what about Regan airport????
: It amazes me that people can get so crazy something they have no control over.
: **beep** **beep** Bill Clinton is the best President ever! **beep** I love the democratic party! **beep** Hillary Clinton will be our president in 200
