Clinton vs. W

A recent CNN poll finds that Americans find Clinton to be better at handling the economy, foreign affairs, and domestic issues, by a wide margin.

Even on trustworthiness and security, territories widely perceived as W's strength, Clinton polled better than W.

Sure, Clinton only paused the Republican war on the vulnerable elements of America rather than undoing it, but he nevertheless was competent, allowing middle-class Americans to become stockholders. The problem is that the Democrats are not able to come up with anyone of Clinton's caliber at this time. Gore wasn't it, Kerry wasn't it, and Clinton's wife doesn't even come close.
