Writing in the Dec. 2003-Jan. 2004 issue of The American Spectator, Dick Morris writes this of President Bill Clinton (for whom he once worked):
Assessing the Clinton years without focusing on their culmination on September 11 would be like discussing Harding and Coolidge without mentioning the stock market crash that took place, like September 11, early on their successor's watch.
Morris goes on the assert that the failure to respond properly to the terrorism that took place on his watch "looms so large as to overshadow other aspects of his legacy." This strikes me as a sound judgment. (January 1, 2004)
