Poll: Clinton more honest than Bush
Oh, I bet the Republican's are having a fit about this! From the ever-adorable (and intelligent) Anderson Cooper blog -"Anderson Cooper 360°"
How bad has it gotten for President Bush? Bad enough that in the eyes of many Americans his predecessor, President Clinton, is looking better. Our CNN poll, conducted by Opinion Research Corporation, asked people to compare the last two Presidents. Which President do people think did a better job on the economy? The public picked Clinton by a mile -- 63 to 26 percent. For many Americans, the 1990s were boom years. "When he was President," a woman told us, "My business did well and I made a lot of money. I kind of miss that." Who related better to problems affecting ordinary Americans? No contest -- Clinton over Bush, 62 to 25 percent. Clinton felt your pain. Clinton also raised taxes. Bush cut taxes. Who wins on that one? Surprise! Clinton, 51 to 35 percent on taxes. So which President do Americans now consider more honest and trustworthy -- the man who said, "I misled people, including even my wife," or the man who said, "If somebody did leak classified information, I'd like to know it and we'll take the appropriate action"? A close call, but slightly more people say Clinton -- 46 to 41 percent. That's right, by a narrow margin, the American public now considers Bill Clinton more honest than George W. Bush.

    At the risk of being too crude, maybe people have figured out that the President receiving a b.j. is less horrible than a President intent on screwing the entire planet.
