When you get right down to it, the 1990s were good to a lot of people. I had a fresh college diploma, a booming economy in which employers fought over my meager skills, a fiancé, an apartment and a pretty good used car.
Nobody I knew was dying in a foreign war.
We caught terrorists when they attacked us (and put them on trial and convicted them on the actual terrorism charges). We had a president who wasn’t regarded by the rest of the world as a lazy ignoramus. It was kind of fun being an American back then.
Especially if you were a professional Clinton-hater. Think of all the material you had! Think of all the time you didn’t have to spend understanding domestic or foreign policy because you had pantsuits and hairstyles and affairs to discuss!
You’d think the Limbaughs and Carlsons of the world would be happier that a Clinton might be back in the White House. You’d think they’d be cheering her on.
It would make their jobs easier, if nothing else.
