Typical reich wing horsesh/t. Nobody died as a result of Clinton's activity.
Tens of thousands have died because of Bush and terrorism is a bigger menace world wide because of his stupidity.
``Vietnam``
Do your homework and you will see that it was Eisenhower who got us involved there. Nixon stopped the war - but only after the Pentagon Papers were disclosed by Daniel Ellsberg.
You are right "Nobody died as a result of Clinton's activity". It was the lack of his activity! Of course, he is a draft dodger, pot smoker, bed hopper, and he brought the White House down to that of a whore house, oh well he is a Liberal. Therefore, he is loved by them!

Who should be kicked out is the two party system that is detroying this country. The best man or women would be one with no ties to anyone and in touch with the people and their needs. You can't even run unless you have millions.

If you do YOUR homework you will find that in 1960, there were only 800 advisors in Vietnam.At the end of 1963, Kennedy had sent another 31,000 troops to Vietnam. I would say that Kennedy is the one who actually got the U.S. involved militarily in the War.
By the way, regarding Clinton, you might say he "fiddled around while the Middle East prepared to burn", if you will pardon my analagy.
You are right about Kennedy; but dead wrong about Clinton. Kennedy had a Congress who were, with a few exceptions (Wayne Morse comes to mind) inured with the domino theory, and who were applying it to Vietnam. Many Kennedy supporters contend that he was (or had decided) deciding to de-escalate the Vietnam conflict, and his assasination allowed LBJ to stumble deeper and deeper into the morass; much like Bush today.

Clinton had a Congress comprised of some of the worst political hacks this country has produced "class of '94". They were more concerned with opposing Clinton's every initiative than patriotic duty. This traitorous group became many of the chicken-hawks we now see in the Bush admnistration; those who led us down the garden path to the debacle in IRAQ.

In fact, I would have to characterize your statement as fabrication. Clinton's personal foreign policy was very instrumental in causing peace to break out all over the world.

Cheney: draft dodger

Bush: murderer & imperialist

``why don't we come together to solve the problems...yeah? Do you understand now?``

Hey genius - if you bothered to read what I wrote instead of reading into it, you would have seen that that was my point. OK?

``you will find that in 1960, there were only 800 advisors in Vietnam.``

And they shouldn't have been there in the first place.

``Clinton's personal foreign policy was very instrumental in causing peace to break out all over the world.``

Clinton stopped what would have been war in the Korean peninsula in 1994. This has largely been overlooked by a very hostile news media that was more intent on destroying everything he did. Prior to intervening in Africa he was criticized for doing too little. Then when he did intervene, he was criticized by the right wingers for doing it. 18 died because of his alleged mistake and you never heard the end of it from the Republicans. 3,000 have died because of Bush's stupidity but that's OK according to those same critics.

Not to mention Clinton's gift of peace to Ireland.
Correction: 6,000 Americans, and somewhere between 30,000 and 90,000 Iraqis.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.

No, Mr. Bill. He's a Democrat. There is no reason to believe that even after he is indicted, impeached, and convicted that he will not continue to exist in the Congress. He'll be considered for a chairmanship of a committee. Who was that guy that Pelosi considered about two months ago? He was convicted over a decade ago and yet he's still there.

Now, if he was a Republican...
