Clinton's bushed presidency

Klein, Joe
August 1993
Newsweek;8/2/1993, Vol. 122 Issue 5, p22
Comments on how President Bill Clinton's death-defying deficit-reduction package of 1993 looks exactly like the skimpy, unsatisfying Bush deficit-reduction package of 1990. How `investments' touted in the campaign have vaporized; What Clinton's presidency is about, without the programs he wanted to see funded; How the modern presidency seems to be more about who the White House occupant is than what he does.
