I find a certain irony in Bill Clinton’s stumping for Democratic candidates. When he reminds voters of the prosperity and declining deficits during his two terms, he neglects to mention the Republican majorities in Congress from 1995 through 2000.

In that sense, he has the best argument ever for Republican candidates in 2010 to hold in check the spending and tax hikes of the current Democrat in the Oval Office.
