The Eight Best Years in Modern History?

Guam voted in its primary/caucus (basically a party controlled primary) with a whopping four delegates at stake. Early indications have BHO edging by HRC, but it's not clear yet . . .

In other news, the candidates are making their main push for the May 6 primaries in Indiana and North Carolina. HRC will need to win Indiana to stay alive. BHO will surely win North Carolina, but, it seems like HRC has bit into her lead there. President Clinton went to Lebanon, Indiana to try to push for HRC:

Folks, it's always a mistake to bet against America. It was tough in 1968, and we came back. It was tough in 1992 and we wound up with the eight best years we've had in modern history.

He's got a point - after all, that was the era of peace and prosperity, at least a lot more peaceful and a lot more prosperous than things are now. Which begs two questions:

First, if HRC wants to win, why doesn't she just say (or, better yet, why didn't she say six months ago), "Hey guys - just ask - are you better off now than you were eight years ago? Do you ever look back on the days of $1.25/gallon gas and not fighting a stupid war with envy? Do you remember when our President was a Rhodes scholar and not a recovering alcoholic functional retard, and when lies of the executive only played to a frivolous harassment suit instead costing thousands of lives? You can't have the old regime back, but, you can have the next best thing!"

Second, Bill, if eight years ago was so great, why didn't the majority of people vote to keep the same party in power? Oh yea . . .
