I did give serious thought* to answering with Hitler, so don't feel lke you're totally in left field.

I picked Clinton for "easiest administration". The conventional wisdom on this forum is that Clinton was an incompetant boob who "Forrest Gumped" his way through eight years of good fortune, but whose policies set George Bush up for failure.

I omitted him because of Whitewater, Monica/impeachment proceedings, and a opposing party controlling Congress. I don't agree with the CW of the forum comment.

I'll be getting to it this afternoon, for sure. Sorry for any delay. In the meantime, let's discuss how racist Sotomayor is.
