One Sentence Guest Editorial--Bill Clinton

One of the great things about being a student of history is that we can look back for guidance in our current affairs, like say the current talk about a stimulus package is not that different from an important period of American history when I was a newly inaugurated president, (you could go further back in history I am sure, but why?), there was pressing need for stimulus in those days, the country having survived the first of two economically flaccid Bush administrations; I had a package of course, others had plans for stimulation as well, some critics said my package hooked to the left, or it placed too much emphasis on the public while ignoring the private parts of the economy, I maintain that you can't wait for a perfect reception for your package, you have to just put it out there and be optimistic that it will provide the much anticipated stimuli.
